    Can the standard silhouette be improved?

    I think this is definitely the way to go

    Can the standard silhouette be improved?

    We were discussing this at the club last week and it seems that this would be the best solution. The only problem being is that clubs would have to buy new targets.

    Heavies....

    You’ll be using them soon and we’ll all be doomed if we don’t use them lol

    Heavies....

    Best to run them around 710 to be on the safe side. I put them through mine and they were spitting them out at 728,too hot for my liking. Didn’t want to drop power as it’s only doing low 11’s with 8.4’s

    Desperation ?

    Gerald Cardew used to swear by them.

    They can only use what’s been issued to them. If the BFTA wants to buy each region one of those super duper chronos then all well and good but in reality we know it’s not gonna happen,so it’s a case of use what’s available. At least it shows some sort of responsibility towards the law

    I Fear A Rule Change is Imminent!!

    It’s a bit like footballers rolling around on the floor after getting tapped in the ankle. You’ll find some nations worse than others.

    Heavies....

    I think the BC is quoted at 0.031. Maybe that’s why when I tried them ,they were only about 5 clicks difference at 55 yards.

    There’s another pellet gonna hit the market soon from H&N for you to try Dave. Barracuda 9.7gr. Being tested at the mo and getting good groups at 50+ yards. They are pre production batches so what the final batches will be like is anyone’s guess.

    He put them over the chrono and they were around the 836-840 mark. I put them through my PT and was getting 810.

    Dave's Lupe ?

    I think the problem is that if you don’t set the ocular lens to the right settings,then the cross hairs can look finer than they actually are.

    I’ve never called a Target because I thought I’ve had a split. I like most have been doing it long enough now to know when the pellet has hit the kill or it’s a splinter of the pellet that marks the paddle. The only time I'll call a Target is if I sit down and can see that the Target isn’t straight and there’s a gap between the paddle and the face plate and that is before I take the shot. I think a lot of it is some people think that they couldn’t have possibly missed the Target.

    I think it was more to do with the lightening

    Prize ?

    Some pellets would be good.

    Desperation ?

    I wouldn’t buy pellets from shops unless I needed some in an emergency or just wanted to try a tin. Ramsbottoms are best prices on the net for AA’s and that’s all I need to know.

    Put them against some 7.9’s and size wise no difference apart from a different shape where the skirt meets the head. They do seem to go pretty well in his 800x,he was moaning that the wind wasn’t testing enough lol

    Far Coly ?

    The heavies are a good pellet but they leave no room for error when it comes to range finding. Also watch the power,my gun gained a full ft1b putting it over the limit.

    That’s what they told you the last time you mentioned about going there 😂
  24. At the club today Grandad has some JSB RS 7.33 pellets he was testing out. He said that he had to take off 5 clicks on each range to bring them on song and unusually they were pretty decent in the wind too. Put over the chrono and they were doing 836. I’ve tried the Falcons of similar weight and from the JSB stable but was finding them no good in the wind past 45 yards,something that he weren’t experiencing with the jsb’s. I put them through my gun and was only getting 805,so I tried my trusty AA 8.4’s and they were at a very consistent 775 which where I like them. I also had some JSB heavies in my bag,so I thought I’d put them over the chrono. Now this did surprise me. They were zipping out at 726 which relates to 12.13 ft1b. I could sort of understand that if I was sailing close to the limit say 11.7ft1b but with 8.4’s I’m only about 11.2 and with the lightweights 10.9ft1b. I thought they must be either very efficient or they ain’t actually 10.33 as stated on the tin. When I got home I weighed a few,expecting to see 9.8gr which would’ve made sense but they were weighing in between 10.2-10.4. I know heavier pellets in a pcp can make them go higher in energy but a full ft1b? Quite worrying really. You think you’re safe running at low 11’s but it seems it’s not always the case.

    Springfield today...

    I use those in the LGU with great results but I may give AA express a try. If they’re anything like the 8.4’s they will be very good. With jsb’s I find that different patches makes a difference but with the AA’s I can use any batch and they’re equally good. Maybe something to do with the softer compound.
