    Hi guys 'n' gals

    I've got a new shipment of JSBs (Exact and Express) about to arrive and would like them tested.

    I have one suitable shooter locally, but would like another competent shooter to test them also.

    The suitable candidate will have experience testing pellets and be able to prove this and will also be competing at the highest levels.

    Obviously you will need somewhwere suitable indoors to test out to 55yds.

    I have one batch of Exact 4.52 I need tested (the other Exacts have been factory selected and don't need tested, they're fab ;) ) and also three batches of Express

    Please PM if interested, and remember its not a chance to bag a few tins of pellets; you'll be asked to prove your worth before getting your grubby mitts on any pellets ;)

    To test for consistancy, you need to eliminate as many variable's as possible. Hence the need for indoor range.

    i think with regards to 55yrds indoors Ryan wants to make sure his batches are up to scratch accuracy wise before he sells to the general public. Not many companies go to these lenghts, these days!;)

    As to FT shooting indeed if the pellets are up to it, then it will be up to the shooter to try them out.:p:)

    I can usually tell outdoors in a mild breeze what they're like, all i'm looking for is a straight line using a consistent vertical aimpoint... something like a pellet tin tape works well... or just a bit of marker drawn across a cardboard box.

    indoor 50m ranges are hard to come by in the uk...

    there is the tunnel range down at charmouth, http://www.thetunnel.co.uk/ but i've yet to get down there (looks great though), and it's not exactly a 5 min trip down the shops, so i tend to do all mine outdoors, once they've passed what i want indoors at 25m... but itching to get down to charmouth

    We use a chicken house it's 60 yards long so is perfect for batch testing:)

    @RobF & Saltydog

    Any of you two interested in testing a few batches?

    Both names came recommended ;)

    It will only be, say, 1/3 of a tin per batch

    well ryan

    i am using jsb match diabolo exact diabolo batch number 40007310 ( 4.52 ).

    & at funace mill they are great to 55 yards, as i have a zero at 35 yards & can get pellet on pellet if not pellet in pellet on a nice day.

    however at 55 yard i can get 1/2 " most of the time & if the wind is picking up its the same really however at 55 yards some times the group is 1 to 2 " :eek: my fault as i need to train & train.

    i can get a bit better groups using daystates ft 4.52 & 4.51's but they have flyers what the above have little if any !!.

    i am not a top shooter but i am getting there :D, just letting you know & if i had a indoor range & that i would be glad to help you out.

    but i also think you need some out door tests too, as that is where most users would use them in real life.

    well cheers

    kenny
