    I just swung by my local shop to pick up a few tins of .177 Mozzies Express and they are now charging £10 per tin,are they having a laugh or what??? They went up to £8 some months back which my memory serves mr correct was a price increase not far off £2 and now a few months later by a further £2. How much are is your local shop pricing them at???

    I think you can still get them on line for £6.99 if you buy ten tins and then pay the postage on top. Comes out about £7.50 a tin.

    I went to buy 500 Hobbies in 22 from a nearby shop just before Christmas. I needed some that day so I had little option. £7.20 a tin, and they are under a fiver on line. Bought 20 tins and some other pellets from BAR and got next day delivery FOC in their Christmas offer.

    Would that be DAI or Sandwell?
    Current batch in DAI as good as scrap 0 0490 09 £8.99 November, throw 1 in 5 away damaged then theres the weights we wont mention. Might see around 200 +/-0.2gr useable out of a tin minus sizing.
    They were £7.95 12 months ago or £72 for ten tins, had to stomach it should have bought more 0 500 08.

    I can get 14 tins elsewhere for £116 but an 09 batch not worth the risk by three bother batches tried so far.
    Just acquired half a tin of a decent 0 0500 05 batch with 4 tins to come free:D That will buy some time to find an alternative.

    Back to 4.52 Maggies:)

    Me local shop is DAI, and I have to agree the quality of the last couple of tins of Mozzies has really fallen. Falcon Accuracy plus were still only £7.99.

    I know the Falcons are good at Kiddy and cheap, trouble is should we say erratic behavoiur in wind above 4 mph ish.

    Got me 4 tins coming, decent batch from 2005.
