    I've just recently been given some new pellets pellets to try out but am not sure whether to use them or not! They are a steel pellet with a plastic sheath around the outside. The chap who gave them to me said that they are really good for hunting. Now my major concern for not using them yet is that the plastic might leave residue in the barrel of my rifle which could affect the rifleing! Is this true?? Does anyone know anything about these pellets (i think their call proetheis) ??:confused:

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Prometheus... i think they are made for smooth barrel guns, so yes they will foul the barrel with plastic.

    Are these the one's http://www.airgunpellets.com/promPell.htm

    Andy is right, you can get steel pellets without plastic. I use them to feed the birds as lead in there food if eaten will kill them, steel just comes up in their pellet.

    buy lead pellets, they are cheaper more accurate, do not listen to what the shop owners tells you....listen to your friends in the forum here:)
