    I'll be selling them but they are not coming in the next order. I will be adding them to the next order after that.

    Any idea of when you will be expecting them and price?

    Dont want to stock up to much on mozzies if i can get hold of these and they are better, which most people seem to say they are?


    thanks

    Should be £70 per sleeve delivered, I can't give a very accurate idea of timing, I'll want to shift most of the first order before ordering the next one. If the interest shown so far materialises then it will be sooner rather than later.

    Intershoot looking into it but not clear yet if they can distribute on the mainland as Webley might have the rights locked down. Ryan said he'd know in a week or two.

    probably no more than batch variations Simon. I had 3 pics on my phone a few weeks back of groups that would convince you they weren't even the same pellet, let alone brand, let alone head size... all that varied was the batch, and the group size... to quite some degree.

    Heres something, a while ago I had a batch of Daystate selects in 4.51, lately I have sourced a tin of JSB Exacts 4.52 with exactly the same batch numbers. The only thing different is the head size on the sticker!:eek: Now explain that?

    I'll agree with that Rob and thats only half the story.
    Do have several batches of Express some from Steyr distributor 6.8 to 8.6gr same tin cant even get a chrono reading, some brought in and some from over the pond the only ones any good.
    Same pellet as Mossies any way with same problems, its batch dependant.

    Just had an email from Ryan at Intershoot, Exact Express expected in approx 6 weeks, but these will only be available to Ireland. :(

    Anyone know of a UK supplier of good batches?

    I was whispered into my ear that someone might be getting uk distribution/selling rights of the JSB Exact Expresses, but not sure if that's public knowledge or even confirmed yet... might be why Intershoot can't sell to UK/GB...

    Thanks, from reading different threads it appears that Express are generally better quality than Mozzies. :confused:
    Don't really know why I'm going off 8.44gr Exacts, suppose I'm hoping for a flatter trajectory. I've had a couple of tins of Mozzies that were included in a gun deal a couple of years ago, have tried them in several rifles (Daystates) with poor results, but last week spent a couple of hours putting them through a Steyr 110 giving decent groups, wasn't too sure of aim points, but next day scored a 56 in an HFT comp. though I had previously cleared a Southern Hunter round with the heavier pellet, as I said don't really know why I'm changing :eek:. Only problem was that the two tins of Mozzies (batch #2620/07) only produced about 80 pellets without damaged skirts that were in the 7.86gr-7.94gr range. :eek: So hoping Express, if I can find them, will be more consistent.

    Mozzies / Express

    I thought (or have been told anyway), that Mozzies are just rebranded Express. Is that not the case then?
