It appears that you are getting used to with the gun.
Try few pellets and finally settled with one or max two brands.
Remember that each brand of pellet may have different point of impact.
To avoid blurred vision splash some water on eyes then you may have better sighting.
Thank you for the tip and encouragementAdded in 1 minute 6 seconds:

But the best thing about these round nosed pellets is that they seem to perform almost as good as precipell on my precihole vx 100, though these pellets are lighter. I am not getting the option to post pics, otherwise I'd upload pics too.
Thank you for the suggestionAdded in 30 minutes 6 seconds:
I just watched it. The guy’s aim is really good.
1. My Artemis has a longer slit on the bottom front face of the stock.
2. I just received Precipell Match FH. The container says 8.2 grains.Added in 38 minutes 22 seconds:
Today I received the Precipell Match FH in mail. I had ordered these from the company’s website last week. The price for a container of 500 of these pellets is 440/- plus the shipping cost of 120/- for a total of ₹560.00
In my opinion, the DTDC courier charges are on the higher side.
1. These pellets fit tighter in the Artemis’ breech as compared to Excite Econ FH and Captainshot FH. I will rank their fit in decreasing order of tightness as Precipell Match FH > Excite Econ FH > Captainshot FH.
One may require a ball pen or some comparable equipment to push these pellets completely inside the breech so that their back rim is flush with the breech seal. I have heard that it improves the accuracy. But I didn’t do that today; primarily because my aim is yet not good enough to compare accuracies.
2. The fit and finish, though very satisfactorily consistent, is still a tad behind of that of Excite Econ FH. Also, the casting seams on the pellets are noticeable. Excite Econ FH had none. Captainshot FH falls way behind on both of these parameters when compared to Precipell Match FH and Excite Econ FH.
I took five sets of thirty shots each with these pellets. According to my system(I have a one inch bullseye. And my 9 point ring is somewhat generous), the scores were:
The fifth set was my highest score yet. One may attribute this to either the pellets or my overall aiming improvement.
Here is the pic of my fifth spread.
Also, it was the first day that I scored more than 225 in every set I shot. If I average more than 225 tomorrow, I will consider it an improvement. I shoot thirty shots in around 20 minutes.
I want to fix aperture/peep sights on my Artemis(both front and rear).
I have been looking at Precipell peep sights set for a while now.
Has anyone tried to, or already have fixed aperture sights on Artemis?
All tips and suggestions will be much appreciated.
