Types of pellets: Wadcutter

Wadcutter pellets.. are the best? for??..

Continuing with our series of types of airguns, available calibers and types of pellets, today we are going to talk about the types of pellets.

Wadcutters are the most preferred for the sport of target shooting, so they are not widely used for the Small Game.


This type of pellet has a wide and round head, hence its name. When this type of pellet is fired at a paper target, it causes large holes in it.

Many target shooting sporting events use the Wadcutters in their competitions, some professional events use them as well.

We must bear in mind that although we are talking about a single type of Wadcutters, this type is available from the cheapest and cheapest pellets, to the most expensive pellets that are highly competitive.

Pneumatic Weapons

Although they are little used in the Small Game, some users or specialist hunters prefer them because according to them they have better performance than other types of pellets, as we will see later those of tip and others. This preference is not scientifically compromised.

In practice the Wadcutters do not penetrate much into the Small Game shooting dams, this means that they work like a hollow point type pellet, but without much penetration on the surface.

This is somewhat controversial because it also depends on the animal being hunted, for example some squirrel hunters prefer Wadcutters. It is their preference and it is repeated.

We must bear in mind that this type of pellet, the Wadcutters do not have very usable aerodynamics, so they lose strength quickly and fall, if you have already used them you know what we are talking about here, for a greater distance you can try another type of pellet.
