the heavier the bb, the less distance it will travel, but the more accurate it will be. Also, the only time temperature can affect a shot is if you are using a gas gun, because the temperature affects the pressure of the gas and the fps of the shot

Temperature also affect hop-up rubbers, so travel distance of bullet will be lower, when it's cold. Basically, at +20C bullet fly twice as far, then at -20C. When temperatere below 0C, most gas gun not capable of shooting.

How much does one airsoft pellet weigh?

Standard weight is .2g. Cheap guns often work best with .12g, while people tend to use heavier bb's such as .23g with high end guns for accuracy. Snipers will sometimes use up to .4g bb's, but usually stick to between .25g and .3g bb's. Heavier bb's result in greater accuracy, but cause a decrease in muzzle velocity.

What Is the Maximum Range Of Walther Dominator 1250 Air Rifle?

Manufactures don't list the range of their rifle. It would be nice if they did but they don't. This is because pellets come in different weights. A light weight pellet will travel farther than a heavy pellet but it will be less accurate than a heavy pellet because it more effected by crosswind. A heavy pellet will fly straighter and have more knockdown impact than a lightweight pellet, but won't fly as far as a light weight pellet. Because the Dominator is a PCP class rifle it obviously has more force than a regular air rifle and you can expect a little more distance at full power. Several PCP class air rifles have a power dial and his also effects the distance.
