    Prometheus pellets are all very good untill you look at the price... I think the last time I bought a pack for a friend, it was about £6.00 for only 50!

    I am a bit Baffled about the price. I get them for £10 (500) so its not that expensive.
    The grouping i find much the same.

    I use them obviously to shoot vermin and then feed them to the Birds of Prey. In that way the Steel is just coughed up in a Pellet where a Lead slug in the food would kill them:eek: .
    but otherwise it would be lead everytime.

    I have heard though that the Steel pellet can damage the barrel if true is there a way round this?

    Dynamic pellets are made of tin and not steel, they can be cut by a finger nail which is much softer than a rifle barrel.

    But how accurate are they?

    I have been using them for a while now in .177 and at short distance seem ok but at longer range are very bad indeed.

    Plenty of the prometheus non lead type pellets been sold on ebay at the moment.
    Why not buy a few different types and see if your gun likes any of them, just seen some Paragon Z2's not seen them for ages.
    Pellets here:D
