    Has anyone tried the new American made Daystate pellets ? If so are they still sold in the standard 4.51/4.52/4.53 sizes like the older types. They do look to be in bigger tins. I shot a few on the indoor range a few weeks back and saw they were noticeably shorter than the current JSB manufactured types marketed by AA/Daystate/FX etc. What about pellet weights, are they fairly consistent. I noticed while on the range they have that lube that Crossman Acupells are covered in, I never liked that gunk on Accupells what are folks thoughts on it in this case.

    I found while using these new pellets my POA had risen by at least 6mm at 25 yds. And now in this months hobby magazines I read these new pellets have been endorsed by an FT champion.

    Your thoughts please.

    They are indeed Crossman Premiers/Accupels and as such are known about. In this case usual rules apply. Try them, they may suit, they may not.

    Was speaking to Sean at BAR about them, apparently they are made by crosman but on brand new dies which were paid for by Daystate - so they have exclusivity for pellets off these dies.
    In the mid 90's prems were ace but went off after a few years, probably run the dies too long, if the new Daystate dies produce pellets as good as the early prems they should be really good if they suit your barrel.:)

    Wonder if the batch number is on underside of each tin, Accupels and Webleys were not.
    If this is the champ i think it is, he has only shot three times in two years and gets his from ASI.

    Speaking to Daystate about samples to try, they asked what calibre I wanted,eg 0.177 4.52,the reply I got was they are not doing head sizes just 0.177.
    No 4.50,4.51,4.52, and 4.53.
    They next question I asked, was the mk4 barrels to the same size as the mk3's barrels (as only the one size),inference was they are not the same.So it looks like the pellets are sized for the mk4 barrels onwards.?
    If they fit they should be good ? havn't tried the samples yet but some down at the club have tried them in the limited edition 'platinums',havn't seen the results yet.
