There are a few things you need to know with these. They kick hard which effects your accuracy big time.

Do not, i repeat do not put light pellets through the gun. They sound so cool as you brake the sound barrier with those pellets but they sound so bad when you brake your spring, and you will brake your spring if you use light pellets. I recommend that you use only JSB Exact or Air Arms Field in 8.44gr and 10.3gr. or the H&N Baracuda 10.34 most others are all over the place.

I have a tin of Gamo TS-1s I think they are 10.49gr.
 
All the reviews I read while researching the gun did mention the kick on these, having shot the gun it was not as bad as I was expecting...
 
Once Ive played with it a bit more, i'll attach the scope and try a few other type of pellets.

Gamo ts-10s are up in the weight, but don't hold your breath for any target grade accuracy from them, QC is not as good as some other brands.
They will give you an indication of what could be achieved , but once you switch to a better pellet your results will benefit as well. I'd go with the heavier end of what's available , light ones are not going to do your spring any favours, or accuracy.
Light pellets break the sound barrier, sounds cool, but as they pass through it they become unstable and start spiralling, this is repeated again as they slow down as well, and you'll see this on paper when their point of impact looks more like a shotgun pattern.
Heavies will travel slower, beat the breeze more, and should impact in a closer group if you're doing your part right .
For hunting pests, heavies will have a better terminal energy as well, resulting in less follow up shots being needed, and getting a more humane kill

There may be an open day at piako club soon, head along and bring your gun. If nothing else it'll be a day to shoot it, zero it, and have a bit of fun killing targets and paper

Date and times etc will be posted on this site when confirmed

If you decide to come to that open day, Alex also has a good range on site as well
Magair.co.nz

Sportways.co.nz supply a good portion of the air gunning community also, and if you mention in your online order that you are a member of an nz forum, you'll get a discount applied to that and all future orders.

Hunting and fishing stock Stoeger X-field pellets, which are rebranded h&n field target trophies

Nzairarms on trademe sells the airarms branded pellets

That should give you some starting places anyway :)
Don't be afraid to try many different pellets, air guns are fussy creatures and tend to like one more than the rest, and you've got a lot of shooting to do to run in the spring etc so a good opportunity.
Look for a domed head rather than a pointed "hunting" pellet, way more accurate
