    Think Jon had some...

    I'm still trying to get the time to test the ones he gave me...

    They have to be bloody good for that price though...

    I bought a trial box at the MGF in September. Since then I've run them through the EV2 under controlled conditions, rifle rested on a bean bag, minimal hold from me, all shots in a wind-free 42 yard pipe range.

    I cannot get them to group. The consistent problem is some shots going low, and these low ones almost always punch a ragged hole in the card, indicating they are tumbling in flight, up goes the drag, down goes the speed, and they keyhole the card. The 450s were much better than the 453s.

    Prior to testing these, I spent a while with Defiants which are externally pretty well identical. The 450 head size grouped better, and in fact if it wasn't for the odd flier they would be the best ammo in the EV2. The 448s and 452s were not as good.

    The New Daystate Pellets are made by Pax

    As many have noticed they look like Defiants ;)

    They was made to their Specification by their Design Team
    To work in Single Shot Gun's

    I have done my own Tests and find as a Single Loaded round they work well in my Gun's

    Trouble is my guns are used to Bullet Design Pellets
    By Action and Barrel is Clean and they can find the required Rifling for Speed and Accuracy
    to get them to offer the Best Results

    Price as State is due to them Having more Handlers than Defiants

    Defiants are made by Pax and Sold by Pax to Shops Direct

    Daystates are made for Daystates - Shipped to Daystates who then pass them onto a distributor who then
    passes them onto Shops and Shooters

    More hand and more transport cost to be covered ;)

    I No longer have access to them as made to order for Daystates

    Its the sizing Rich! All over the place.
    Run them through a sizer and one hole unless of course theres 1mph of breeze in wghich expect 1/2" movement.
    Seen enough gave them to Rob rather than melt down.
