The number of .177 caliber pellet positions fell in 2017 from three in previous years, possibly indicating reduced demand in this caliber.

However, BBs have shown a steady increase in popularity. They took two spots in 2017, one in 2016 and made no appearance in Pyramyd Air’s list of top selling airgun ammo in 2015. It’s likely that the increasing number of BB-firing, firearms replica air pistols would be responsible for this increase in BB sales.

In terms of manufacturers, the “big two” – JSB and H&N – continue to dominate the rankings, as you would expect.

In 2017, JSB again took the top two positions in Pyramyd Air’s listing. But 2017 was clearly a good year for H&N. They matched JSB with four each out of the top ten positions.

This compares to 2016, when JSB took four slots compared to two from H&N. In 2015 JSB had five out of the top ten, while H&N had two.
