As far as .22 is concerned, almost all Indian coys have stopped manufacturing it, less on or two.
Majority shopkeepers are not attempting to take it in their stock. Even those who have, some are asking for letter from DM, or SDM atleast.
Some dealers that hold .22 keep only very Ltd in stock and sell in excess price. Varying between 11000 - 20000 for aarmr.
Consequently, the good quality pellets are not easily available in local shops for .22.
There is no sale .22ar online also.
Even for foreign ones, they are in black ranging 1.3 to 1.6 Lacs.
For ordering new ones from abroad through keihberg, you need to have membership of NRAI or other national level federation in .22 specifically.
This I could realise after personally speaking/ visiting maj dealers in Delhi, Sahibabad, Dehradun and Meerut in last few months.
There are more reservations in envt on selling them further.

Sir if you need normal air rifle (not toy in 177) better then you may doing ,give a license in police and import PCP in 6.35 or 7 mm caliber with 70 or 100 j
About pellets - buy "cast bullets" staff
lead - many in old auto battery
1-2 day working on holiday and you have 1 year fund pellets

Many PCP have adapter to auto pump)))) and not big deal recharging you pcp weapon
Russianshooter- using battery Lead for casting is a very bad idea. There is high cadmium content in them and known to cause cancers. Wheel weights or roof flashing - if available - made into an appropriate alloy is preferable.

My query to all veterans-

Is .177 air rifle with 1200fps is more lethal or
.22 air rifle of 800fps.

Kindly throw light. Accuracy aspect be ignored.

Comming to the original question, in my opinion .22 will carry more kinetic energy at a longer distance due to the heavier pellet..........at short ranges it may not matter much its similar to comparing .223 Rem and .308 win
