    The difference is the head size of the pellets.

    There is Also a Difference in Pellet Shaped

    Wasted Design

    Or Bullet Shape - Out of Pax Pellets

    Bullet Design was first Brought out in Dynamic Air Gun Pellets
    Made from Tin - www.airgunpellets.com

    Later Brought out in Lead in Logun Penetrators / Exterminators
    And in Current Growing Range of Defiants - www.defiantpellets.com

    Where design put weight up front - for heavy hitting
    and better speed and accuracy

    But still down to individula Gun's and Finish

    All Bullet design pellets give far better results in Clean Action and Barrels
    As need to find rifling for Speed and Accuracy

    There are Test Packs of Defiants - Details on Web Site & Forum
    Yes have there own Forum board - saves upsetting other Commercially
    run Forum Board ;)

    Pellet Prices

    The Majority of today's Air Gun Pellets Are Imported

    As Raw material Lead and other Associated Costs Rise

    Prices have risen well in recent years

    Not helped by UK's current Weak currency

    Prices seem to rise with each Fresh Batch of Pellets

    It is a case these day's if you find a good pellet
    Get yourself well stock - as can not see prices ever coming down

    Let alone EEC restrictions on the Way for using Lead as a contact
    Material - Check out REACH - on internet -

    There is already Lead Restrictions in Germany & USA

    good info:up: a question for you.

    is it true that in reality there is only like a couple of dozen factories that produce pellets and that they are merely sent to other factories and repackaged in different tins and labels are stuck on them?

    the reason i say this is because everybody i know and have shot with all have their own story to this point, for instance, i here all the time if you cant get such and such a brand then buy these they are exactly the same anyway:confused:

    not sure and if this has been covered before i cant find it anywhere on the forum.

    cheers, james:up:

    I only use Bisley Magnums .22 21gn
    and just going through a tin of Bisley Super field, great accuracy from both but the heavy weight is my personal fave,
    just go on ebay and get a sample pack usualy five different types ?????
    H&N copper point are a good pellet too.

    cheers

    My first HW80 was a .177 and i only used the bisley magnums and copperpoint, RWS Superpoint was another fave of mine but the magnums were more accurate. Thing because they were heavier being 14gn over the others and had a flatter trajectory. I made a nice mess of a old hard hat at 80yards with the magnums.

    Those were the days

    cheers

    Buy one tin for 4.51mm and one in 4.52mm and try them out in your rifle. In my experience there is not much difference between 4.51mm and 4.52mm but that's just me.

    14 grain Defiants in 5.52 are the only pellet i use now, they give the best results in my rifle (BSA hornet) excellent accuracy, excellent consistency and excellent penetration also the trajectory is'nt too loopy.
    i also use the 18 grain defiants for when i need a bit of extra punch.

    ps-they are used for hunting as thats all i do
