Will Helium Make This Air Rifle Shoot Faster?

Would helium be a better power source for air rifles than regular air?

The results might actually surprise you.

Watch as YouTuber Cody’sLab tries firing a pellet gun using helium gas.

Science can be a friend to the shooter. This is certainly the case with this interesting experiment.

This shooter using a 10 pump air rifle is curious if helium gas will cause a pellet to have a higher velocity and more power. Using a sealed garbage bag and a helium tank the test shows indeed helium is a better power source than regular air. The science behind this interesting find is explained by YouTuber Cody’sLab.

How could we use this information in our air rifle shooting needs? Possibly a precharged air rifle using Helium gas just might super charge your shooting experience.
