Which ever ones you can group under an inch with at any given range. That won't be hard with a 95. You may have to try a few brands. Jsb are a god start point. Try some selection packs to save buying lots of some you won't use. 

Steer clear of pointed pellets.

Er...only if they suit the barrel. If not, they're a ruddy nightmare. I tried JSB exacts in my R10 and they were hopeless. There was nothing wrong with the gun or the pellets, just not a great combination.

But they're a good place to start. My HW95 did well on bisley magnums and RWS superdomes and AA diabolo field. Unfortunately there's no guarantee that they will suit your gun though. If you're at short ranges, definitely look at a hollow point, because they develop huge stopping power and never over penetrate. Not great beyond 25 yds, but under that they pack a hefty wallop. Good pellet choice if shooting round buildings. Bisley's Hollow Points would be a good bet there

Whatever the barrel prefers.....could be anything....I always get a sample pack (or buy small quantities (50 ish) of 'probable' pellets.....say 10 different brands/weight etc) and test, test, test and test again until I'm certain I've found the right one.

......oh and make sure to clean the barrel with a pull through between each different pellet test....p.i.a but crucial.

My friend the above is only the very tip of the iceberg .

Airguns are complicated beasts especially springers .

Everything else is soo simple in comparison .

Plus one on that as long as your rifle likes them.

Weihrauch F&T

Accupell FT

Bisley Pest Control

I thought I had some Daystate Sovereigns, but I must have run out! They're basically the same as the AA Diabolo Field anyway! 60 of each. Happy shooting

Pellpax also do sample packs (I have several in my attic) and whilst they might not contain the Nirvana pellet they give you a very good idea which brands and pellet weights work best in your barrel.
