    Hi all, I recently bought a tin of Napier's "Power Hunter" pellets that come ready lubed with some "secret recipe" oil.
    Napier should change the name to "Diesel Masters" or "Grit Magnets" as they were saturated in the stuff!!
    Other than that they seem ok,I haven't fired any yet
    Surely they can't be good for your gun in that state.
    I had to clean them carefully to remove the exess.
    Are there any other ready lubed pellets that you have found satisfactory?

    I don't know if this is connected with pellet lube but I find a white powdery substance on the seals after shooting lubed pellets, The gun has been stored for a while so I can only assume it was lubed pellets but don't quote me on that its only an assumption

    White stuff

    Hi David, I reckon the white stuff is produced by dieseling.I have seen similar deposits on springers that are over greased.

    Thankyou Potshot as my guns are new I recon that is what it could be, excess oil being burnt off from the manufactures so nothing to worry about

    Cheers

    Perhaps you had an odd batch. I bought a tin of .177 a while ago but there is no excess lubricant in the tin. In fact the pellets are dry to the touch and don't seem any different from unlubed pellets.

    I have tried them in my Ultra and it seems to like them. Very accurate at 25yds and with good power.
