Anyone heard any more about these?
I have been sent some exact premium pellets from a contact in the Czech republic, they should be with me very soon. The original plan was to release an 8.4grain express shaped pellet. The tests may not have been favourable. They have opted for these.
Let us know how you get on with them.
Wouldn't mind giving them a try if I can get my hands on some
I have just been on JSBs web site and it is saying that premium jsb diablo exacts 452s are for sale where can i buy these pellets from ?????????
Have no idea, would like some myself
Should be giving a few of these aWay as prizes at the final round of the DMHS at Kibworth on 1st March,
JSB are sending some over as prizes.
would be nice to find a source to buy them from or is this pellets for the home market in czech republic ??? Or even if Ryan at intershoot gets a small load to see how they would sell to the uk market ????
Apparently 8 euros for 200, so not too bad unless the UK gets the usual inflation of retail price.
were did you see them jeepsy ?????
Hi all, they are on the JSB website but not available in the UK at the moment. I've got some arriving this week from JSB so will pop them on the scales and give them a good look over. If they're here before the weekend i will check them out and report back.
Edit - i normally shoot batch 22 and found them quite good with the weight spread not being too bad. Last time i weighed it took me approx 2 hours to do 2 tins so the new ones will have to good to beat the time/effort it takes me to get 1000 good pellets.
Solware says "coming soon" for these?
Sorry may have got this mixed up but 8 euro for 200 thats 20 euro for our 500 £15.60 a tin I hope there real good
you can't buy success , or maybe you can now,we'll wait and see
I have some very good diamond scales so will check out a full box and shoot through the blueshot. Will post the findings early next week.
BC chart i found on Wiki...might be of interest.
I spoke with the US importer at SHOT show last week. These new pellets are sorted to ~ .001 grains. He said they have a new machine that is able to sort at that consistency. The tins are sorted to ~ .005 grains. He mentioned that it was also able to sort better and more consistently for head size but I am a bit skeptical of that.
The label gives the weight and tolerance in g (gram) not gn (grain), 0.001gram is 0.15 grain isnt it?
We are being had with this imho.
Short history lesson, when air arms first sourced the diablo from jsb, they were superb, weight spread in the tin was 0.15 grain, i saved a sample batch to compare batches against the originals.....i know, sad!
What we are getting is jsb reverting to tolerances and levels of quality they know they can do.
Unfortunately, this is at our cost, as Doz has said circa 20 euro for 500 or, £15.
Going back in time again, i remember paying under £3 a tin if bought by the case of 50. Thats pretty high inflation really. Just saying
Just for example;
£500 butt hook
£180 air stripper
£80 scope rail
£60 parallax wheel
...and we are crying over spending 3p per shot for decent ammo.
And you leave it in the reception of the travel lodge unattended oo
Nearly £7,000 for your rig is hardly typical is it? It isn't just the top guys that buy pellets.
