    It might be an iPhone thing but I can't make the nav bar work, will try when I get home.

    If the web page is a reflection on their abilities then I'm more than a little suspicious. Post on BBS states the pellets have been trialled by top FT/HFT shooters, would be interesting if they would come forward with their thoughts. Suspect that no one will though. Seem to be too much like JSB's to me, if they do exist I suspect they will be re-packaged JSB's.

    These are of course are just my opinions ;)

    Awful website and not even a pic of one of these wonder pellets:confused: Tins (and website) that look like a 5yr old done them in Paint....I'm sceptical to say the least...

    Got the individual pellets up but cant post a screen grab.
    This may work http://www.gtecshootingsupplies.com/index_files/Page357.htm

    If not:-

    GTE500-52 4.52 0.475g
    The Gtec Extreme is a very light pellet with a higher velocity than normal pellets , this gives the pellet a very flat ballistic curve making it the perfect choice for all Target and Field events .

    Same as JSB 7.9gr?


    GTPM500-51 4.51 0.547g
    GTPM500-52 4.52 0.547g
    GTPM500-53 4.53 0.547g

    The Gtec Pro Match is a very accurate pellet produced to the highest standards , This pellet is at much at home on FT scene as it is on the Benchrest .

    The Gtec Pro Match pellet has a perfect distribution of centre of gravity and alignment making this pellet a popular choice in the air rifle World .

    JSB Exacts 8.4gr? Need a piccy

    Anyone recognise the phone area?
    Suspicious using hotmail as well.

    0.475g = 7.3gn (same as JSB exact express RS, or falcons here)

    0.510g = 7.87gn (same as mozzy or JSB exact express)

    0.547g =8.44 gn (same as JSB exacts, or whatever else they're badged as this week)

    so

    they're JSB's in a tin that looks like it was designed in 30 seconds on a website that looks like it took a minute to setup in MS office... including setting up that 'must have' for trade only.... drum roll... the much sought after sign of quality and trust... ta daaahhh .... a hotmail email.

    the phone code is in belgium

    and the domain is private reg'd, so that's a dead end... looks like it's hosted on lycos though... another sign of quality

    it's only 2 weeks old...

    although the server is hosted in the US, the specific request for the HTML to use english GB would suggest it's possibly come from the UK

    so it's someone who doesn't want to be found, possibly in the UK with a belgium phone number, or possibly someone in belgium with a UK version of MS Office... selling rebadged JSB's...

    I don't understand this, if JSB don't want to sell direct in the UK, why rebadge them as something else?

    JSB's will be available but only through Air Arms > Rothery's > a number of retailers.
