    Because they both work out about the same price, but one bought in bulk, which is better of the two, Accupell or JSB Diablo Exact.

    I hear good things about both. H&NFTT were pretty accurate but a little hard.

    I'm looking to settle down with a single pellet, used for long range hunting at legal limit power (Cometa 300 springer)

    Air arms diablo field were going to be another option, but I can't get hold of them as easy.

    pellet choice

    i personally would forget the accupell, or crapupell as they are known. they are a very dirty pellet, however saying that they do work well in some rifles. do a group test at the ranges you want to shoot at and decide from there... dont forget with a springer the lighter the pellet the more power you will get so please once you,ve made your choice of pellet, put it acros a chrony just to make sure your legal.....:)

    So are they only crap cos they're dirty?

    I refused to go near them, but people keep ramming them down my neck as being the best

    AirArms much better?

    different rifle barrels like different pellets. accupell are a very dirty pellet and foul up barrels fairly quick.look in a tin and you,ll see what i mean also get some out on a peice of kitchen towel and roll them about abit,towel will turn grey...


    if they are washed and prepared they can( in some barrels) be extremely accurate... imo

    If I can get them, I'm going to look at Air Arms, I like the accurate/soft combo, shoul dbe a good comprimise over the hollow points that fail me.

    Got 600 hollows to finish though, see if i can get them to do anything useful !

    Those penetrators, fit very tight, will that be a bad thing?

    Have you seen the 'copies' available?

    I had a free sample the other week, some tin and some in lead but same shape

    Are they the same?

    Had some more fun with the bullet shaped ones last night.

    Took a pot shot down the field (as you do out of boredom) at a tree about 70-80 yards away (or the limit of my x9 zoom, whatever that is)

    I aimed a little high to counteract the drop in height, not too much but the ammount I'd use for the H&N FTT to hit target (a fat parallel branch)...

    fired..... the pellet flew straight over the top, where I aimed!

    Now thats flat!

    I will be ordering some more for sure - I just wish I'd noted if it was the lead or the tin bullet I used - more testing required I predict
