    Hi all

    I have a few tins of these new pellets and so far they weigh up really well. They look really good and there shiny...which must be good. I am shocked at there consistency , so far i don't think i need to have bothered! The real test will be at Pete's farm as i have a new scope as well ...so a whole new set up...in at the deep end as ever!!!

    CANT WAIT!!!

    I know that Daystate had there own die made so its a one off and the pellets should be better than the Accupells and Prem's. A full test will be done on Friday at all ranges! I am told there are differences but as yet i am not sure what they are.

    Nice pellets

    Decent looking pellets it has to be said.

    Do Daystate sell the pellets themselves then Rog?

    If so can you buy in bulk order if they are decent through the rifles???

    Crossman had new dies last year any way.
    The labelling in the past has not resembled what is in the boxes ie 7.9gr batch and die. Open box 10.6gr in and had 4 boxes over a couple of years, so hope the quality control has improved.

    Accupels were not labelled with batch number, die etc are these and does it resemble whats in the tin?

    I can get 1250 boxes of Crossman legit for £13 ea from an ex world champ, are these going to be £10 for 500.
    Harder lead as well and still may need washing and lubing.

    i got a box of 12 tins last week in .22 cal. at random i picked 10 from the tin and each one weighed 14.3gr so the tolerences are ok.
    chrono tested them and reset the power on my rangerto suit and went to test them. at 30yds the groups were tighter than im used to using jsb/air arms/ daystate pellets.
    all the pellets are one sized head (5.5mm) and one skirt size (5.53mm) the 177 are 4.5mm head and 4.53 skirt. the pellets are bright and shiney and dont give you the grey prem finger of old. i can even pick my hooter now without the giveaway grey nostril ring.
    the price is £7.99 for 500 .177 and £10.99 for 500 .22 - included in the price is a shiney new screw top tin which makes the old wilkinson sword edge tins a joke.
