    They're my pellet of choice in the walther... group very well... i prefer to size and weigh mine, and keep them in a tin with a little napier on the foam pads... but i'm getting single pellet width strings in the wind, and they're basically going where I can put them.

    I think Andy Gillott used them in his steyr to win the GP series.

    I find I need to tweak the power a tad to make the most of their speed within the legal limit, but I still steer well clear of it, running them at a shade over 800fps...

    Thanks everyone for your input the reason i asked is because i order a few things from Harry Preston for my Steyr and started to chat like you do.And he mentioned the JSBs Express pellets and has sent me a small amount to try,but i haven't had the chance yet.

    Thanks Chris

    Falcon Accuracy are meant to be the rebadged Express in the UK, aren't they? Are they the same as Mozzies then?

    Cheers.

    I shoot the Exact express 7.9gr and have for a long time.

    Andy Gillot won the GP series wih pellets i sold him, they were the same pellets i cleared 4 courses with and won the 2008 UKAHFT. I find that they are more consistant for weight spread out of the tin and take less wind, even at longer ranges. The only negative i've found is that my sponsored Daystate does not seem to like them.

    I'm bringing 100 tins back from Holland in a few weeks along with a load of 4.52 8.44's....and i'll get more around the June time.

    Correct.

    The family is as follows

    JSB Exact 8.44 gn (allegedly rebadged as well to Daystate Selects in the UK, 400 in a tin)

    JSB Exact Express 7.9 gn (allegedly rebadged as well to Webley Mosquito in the UK, 500 in a tin)

    JSB Exact Express RS 7.3 gn (allegedly rebadged as well to Falcons in the UK, 500 in a tin)

    AA Fields although similar to Exacts, are different in a few ways. RWS Superfields seem the same as the Exacts, but not 100% on that.

    Some labelled as Mossies were flat on the inside Chris, i did notice.

    I'll take 8.4 or 7.9 that will shot straight, same trajectory as well, trouble is finding some.
