    Been using 70 for the last 6 months and have no problems. When I weigh them, I only find on average about 40 pellets a tin outside 8.30 to 8.60 grains. Got 3 reems but they are now unavailable.

    It would be useful to get a definitive answer from JSB as to their batch numbering policy as it now seems to be different to what they told AirAmmo & myself previously.

    I've also seen two batches of supposedly the same batch numbered (3007409) pellets that are definitely a different die.

    JSB numbers

    Think someone on here reckoned the numbers were
    First 3 numbers were the die number; next 2 were quality controller; last 2 were the year

    But looking at the Intershoot site there are
    4000010 (2) as Exact and 4000010 (0) as Express.

    Would be nice to know what the numbers do mean.

    2008 batch

    Simon,

    I doubt you will find any of them fella as they are an old batch like mine.

    I use 3005808 which I bought a 100 tins of in 2008. I got 55 tins left and once their gone thats it with them sadly. theyve done me proud over the last 2 years fair play...

    For people looking for more pellets you really need to test the current batches & then buy a large batch otherwise you are forever trying to find stocks or testing new batches trying to find something that works.

    I use Die30 & still have over 100 tins & I know Pete Sparkes still has 60+ tins of the Die70's, I know this doesn't help shooters trying to find stock of these but it just highlights what you need to do to get a good & long term supply.

    We have found problems with the old RWS Superfields that were made by JSB. We have found three different types of pellets all using the same batch number. Dave Ramshead noticed the difference when opening a new sleeve of the same batch number to sort some for comps.

    I got a 25years service award 18months ago to the Value of £500 but you had to give them a receipt for what you had bought, they got a AirAmmo bill for 100 tins :D

    For those wondering what the batch numbers represent.

    an extract from Pavel's mail

    "Regarding your question about JSB pellets marking. The numbers are actually
    as follows:

    "5005209 8 4.52"

    Die no 05
    Employee in production 00 (not marked in your case)
    Quality inspector 52
    Manufacture date 09
    Batch 8
    Size 4.52"

    Die 05 is printed as 5.

    Thats a strange one as all the batches of JSB pellets I've every used all had 00 after the first digit, seems strange they would stick them in if they don't mean anything in this case.

    I was originally told for a 5005209 4.52 8

    50 - Die Number
    052 - operator id
    09 - year of manufacture
    4.52 - head size
    8 - Batch number
