    They used to work really well in my daystate mk4 Chris. H&N were good, but the HW were better.

    I've used them extensively in Weihrauch spring rifles over a few years and found them to be a very good performer. Never had a bad tin; always consistently made with no visible variation. I'd recommend you try them.

    I won 5 tins a few years ago, not really tried them, opened one tin, marked as 4.51, they seemed a bit tight, is all I remember.
    Wanna buy 'em??

    Hey up Pirate

    It's another one of those 'made by someone else and rebadged jobs'.

    I'm pretty sure these are H&N Field Target Trophy ( FTT ) made for Weihrauch by H&N and badged Weihrauch F&T Special.

    H&N FTT weigh in at around 8.6gr. Loads of threads on the internet claiming the weights are all over the place from 8.4gr up to 9gr+.

    The people weighing Weihrauch F&T Specials seem to be claiming around 8.6gr - 8.9gr. One poster also says that they are very slightly different to H&N FTT as the heads are a tad flatter. I reckon that's because H&N are making these for Weihrauch and probably using sets of dies specific to Weihrauch ( just like other manufacturers do for other companies ).

    Same old same old matey ...

    Try them and if the tin/batch that you have is sweet in your rifle then get loads of them.

    How do Tractor? I used some heavy ones (10ish grains) on Saturday for rat splatting, worked really well. They seem to be H&N made if that helps?

    Tried them a few years ago Chris through a hw100, they seemed to suit that quite well, consistent 20mm at 55y unweighed.

    H&n ftt current pellets are phenomenally made, very tight weight tolerance. The tins I had earlier this year had Very few outside a 0.2 grain spread. Grouping was good, but had the next tin out of the same batch where you would get a shot that went walkies for no apparent reason.

    Ended up using barracuda match for most of this years ukahft series, but know they have changed profile now and latest batches of those don't suit my guns.

    Hi Chris

    Yes I did shoot springer fella.

    I deleted some of my post as I'm trying to limit my replies to a million words or less.

    Like Rammy says the quality of the German stuff looks excellent. I deleted the bit where I'd said that I measured the heads on my H&N FTT. The heads were very very consistent. Not like JSB and Cros Prems that I've measured. The lengths were variable though. There were tiny bits of 'swarf' on the bottom edges of the tails.

    Simon Ayers, who you'll know is a top FT guy, mentioned in a post that he'd tried H&N FTT but found stability and BC at longer FT ranges let them down in his rifle.

    They are one of those pellets that I've always wanted to do well in my guns. I have guns that love the 10.6gr Barracuda and the consistency/accuracy of those, that I've had ( a while now mind ) has been superb. I wanted the lighter 8.6gr FTT to be the same. Sadly it wasn't the case in my guns.
