    there free rob from H&N just email them from the email listed on here with your address and they post them to you FOC even p+p :D

    received ours last week I tried 5 of each pellet at 50 yrds.

    The field target trophy`s were very tight in my EV2 barrel both 4.51`s & 4.52`s, l could feel them scrape over the transfer port and grouped like a clock face :( i used these 3 years ago in my 1st gun S400 (no longer own) and they were brill but not in my EV2 .
    The barracuda heavy weights group really well but had to go one full turn on my top turret to get the pellet to land on my cross hair at 50 yrds.
    As for the copper ones all the skirts were damaged and didn`t group at all all over the place at 20/30/40/50/55 yrds

    So think i`ll stick to my JSB`s :D

    the pellets are at the club now for others to try so ill let you know what results everyone else gets

    The results above are only a test with my EV2 and may work and be good in other guns so have a trial your self and see how they go

    cheers shaun

    Our batch arrived on Friday. The first thing we did was to do some sample weighing. These pellets look well made, clean, bright, properly formed, no apparent damage, and the weights are some of the most consistent of any pellet I've ever tested, apart from the very first batch of Webley Mosquitos which were incredibly consistent.

    H&N supplied 4 tins of 100 each of FTT in 451 and 452, Barracuda Gold in both sizes, and Barracuda copperheads in 452 although the letter says they are 451.

    I weighed 50 pellets from each tin.

    The FTT specified weight is 8.47 grains. I found the 451s ranged from 8.46 to 8.66 with an average of 8.56, SD 0.0498. 452s were also very good, 8.43 to 8.63, average 8.52 and SD 0.0454.

    The Barracudas were if anything even closer to spec weight. Nominal weight 10.3, they came in at average 10.26 and SD 0.049 for the 451s and average 10.32 with SD 0.061 for the 452s.

    But the star prize goes to the Copperheads. Spec weight 10.19, average 10.22, SD 0.037, highest 10.31, lowest 10.12.

    I've only had chance to try the FTTs and in the Pro-T they were very tight in the breech. Grouping was not bad, not up to Mossie standard, and the groups fell about 2 inches low at 55 yards which could be a function of the heavier weight and the tighter fit. I'm in the process of running a few through a sizer to see if that helps.

    I got ours last Friday,had a bit of a test with them Sunday straight out of the tin in my EV2.

    Chrono'd ten of each:

    FTT 4.51 791.5 FPS SPREAD OF 10.0 FPS (9 OF WHICH WAS A 6.5 FPS SPREAD)
    FTT 4.52 788.7 FPS SPREAD OF 5.3 FPS
    BARRACUDA 4.51 731.0 FPS SPREAD OF 10.9 FPS (9 OF WHICH WAS A 4.7 FPS SPREAD)
    BARRACUDA 4.52 726.2 FPS SPREAD OF 11.1 FPS (9 OF WHICH WAS A 7.3 FPS SPREAD)
    COPPERS HEAD 4.52 714.3 FPS SPREAD OF 13 FPS

    I didn't clean the barrel between brands as they are all lubed.

    Also did a grouping test with them at 25yds, not really fair as there was quite a blustery stiff breeze a the club. All of them produced 12mm 'ish ctc groups.

    By the way Rob, I've got a batch here for you to test.
