    Went to my local range today The Wiltshire Shooting Centre and tried these pellets,thought to myself these are going to be fast ,and yes they were :eek:.
    My Platinum shoots Daystate 4.53s 8.44 grains at 775 to 778 fps then put the H&N Feild Target T Green 5.56 grains Lead Free through the chrono and 930 fps =10.68 ft/lbs.
    Then shot at some of the spinners we have at the bottom of our range ( 23 yards ) and they hardley moved, so fast out of the rifle,energy low.
    So when i go to the Daystate Winter League next week at Worcester i will try them on the plinking range to see how they do,and i hope its a bit windy just to see how far they blow off course :eek:.
    Going on other light pellets that shooters have tried i don't hold out much hope for these as an HFT pellet,indoor shooting maybe out door well will let you know.

    I noticed these on the BAR website and thought they would be "interesting" to try.
    I was hoping they would be that fast that the wind wouldn't bother them too much as they'd be in the air for less time but I was kinda put off by H&N saying they were only good for 25 yards.

    I'd like to hear what kind of results you get at HFT ranges...
    ...and if they've enough energy left to knock over a target :)

    Well tried the pellets today and after a few shots at only 30 yards, the target fell once or twice ,but would not reset and not good in the wind.
    I may have not given the pellets a good test ,but for me they would never be a good pellet for target shooting outside, and as for hunting i would say NO NO NO.
    So if anyone else tries them i would like to know how you get on.

    Hi,
    I tried it, it was horrible. I could not hit the 40mm KZ from 40 meters with this pellet. I could not talk about "grouping" on 30 meters...
