    I tried these years ago but was not impressed but i bought a tin of .22 today.
    At .22 5,5mm i was plesently surprised how clean they where.
    Not everyone offcoarse, name me a tin without a few dodgy ones but it seemed to keep its path well and i liked it.

    Anyone else use these for hunting. There is a 'Bisley Vermin' . :confused:

    Just brought the Air Arms Field and they are half the weight.
    I think the Magnums would only be good for more:gossip: Gun.

    bis mags

    you should find the airarms pellets up there has clean killers with the mags soft lead just mushroom on impact it was once thought bisley mags being slightly pointed would tumble on impact doing alot of damage

    I use both the AA fields and bisley superfields.. I really like the superfields.. lighter than the magnum and with that little dimple in the end.. they shoot great and cant fault them for killing power

    The Magnums i have found good at short range -25 yards but considerably drop after that.
    They do hit with impact as a few squirrels in the bag shot clean through the head proove it.
    I do like a heavy pellet but i think that reduces your distance for accuracy. but short range like above i was so amazed how accurate they where. On a still day i use a .177 for long distance but then when is it often a still day over here and you can bet you are working that day

    I like the sound of those bisley fields. How much lighter are they?

    Tried a great variety of pellets and the AA Diablo Field for me came out tops. The Bisley Magnum at short range though create huge damage to the quarry.
    great foe 20 yard squirrel, but over that the diablo's where tops at 30, 40, 50 yards.
    In fact at 60 yards i was hitting inside a pound coin. None of the others where capable of this consistantly.

    i used bisley mags in .22 a few years ago and for dropping rabbits instantly you cant beat them...it,s because of the drop that people dont like them, but if you know your aim points for that particular pellet then they are just as accurate as most of the top brands...if not better and less affected by wind...45 or 50 yd rabbits dont run off ....they just drop to the floor...what they are like in .177/4.51 i cannot say as a hav,nt used them but in .22/5.51 they imo are top pest control pellets.....

    The first pellets i used were bisley premiers, i thought they were great, i then tried crosman accupells and realised how bad the bisleys were. They are so heavy, there's a significant drop even at short distances. Accupells are much better in my gun.

    i first tried crosman accupells and loved 'em, i then tried bisley long range gold and then went back to accupells after testing them both.

    accupells seem to be affected by wind more but with ranges up to 50 yards on a perfect day you can't beat them.

    bisley long range gold are very accurate but seem to have a lot of drop after 30 yards or so.

    i still haven't found anything better than crosman accupells, i don't really need to either, they do what i need them to do and thats enough for me.

    Hi, I think I agree that Bisley Mags are great for anything up to 25 yards - over that and they do have quite an arc - I use them all the time in .22 at about 25 yards but sometimes up to 35 yards (still effective) - If I know I'm going to be shooting up to 40 yards I tend to use the Bisley Pests - they have a flatter arc (in my opinion).

    If you have .22 and it is not FAC this pellets are just to heavy.
    if your airgun s FAC this pellets are one of the best, if not the best
