    Hi Don,
    the new tins / batches have been out for a couple of months and are starting to filter through to local shops.

    I know the new batch 14 (same lid as you have) have been reported to be better than the older batch 14.
    very few damaged or out of spec pellets.

    No idea about batch 50 you have, but if they work get a kload in?

    They have been in red tin tops for about 6 weeks or so.
    Mine are a different batch number to yours, they group very well indeed through my Steyr. 39007011
    John Costello at our club also found my batch printed a good group at 55y through his Steyr.
    Peter.

    I have been shooting the pellets in the red tins since the euro's in September, I find them very good.

    We got a batch of 14 -11 the skirts are a lot smaller and fall straight through Jeff Skinners BIC pen. The general opinion seems to be they are an excellent pellet.
