The only way these will be cheap is direct from China in bulk and then you'll get hammered on the freight.

By rights the European pellets 'should' be cheap except that there are too many people with fingers in the pie.

At a recommended retail of £11.99 for 500, more expensive than JSBs - somebody is raking it in

Yep exactly, just over ten years ago pellets were £3.50 for a tin, the price of raw materials went up as China went into over-drive, but since then they've normalised but of course prices haven't dropped to match.

Yep that’s the problem, we pay top dollar for everything and subsidise everyone else.

I have tried these pellets. Very very well made, very consistent in weight and head size, moreso than jsb. I think they just a morph of their 10m match pellets. My fwb 800 prefers them to any other pellet. A real tack driver ( 5p peice at 50m 30 shots) The only fly in the ointment is they seem to be very barrel fussy seeming to prefer the tighter match type barrels. With my Ftp I get occasional flyers whereas the fwb I get none. 

Holly pm your address Ill send you some

Sounds encouraging but not surprising to be honest.

The Chinese excell at taking something and making it better/cheaper. The only problem you get is when things like dies start to wear and they won't replace them.

Judging by how well the Chinese shooters are doing Worldwide it wouldn't surprise me if these pellets were from the same stable that produce their match pellets.

Looking at the specs, if they are 'true' to size at 4.50, they won't probably suit any of my guns, as they all seem to prefer at least 4.52 pellets,  though might see about getting a tin or two, just to see if any of the guns will group well with them.

Suck it and see . i am not so sure it is the head size in a lot of rifles but the fit from the tail that gives some rifles good windage . i do like a good strong skirt on a pellet . 775 is what i run my rifles at  anyway . it is the lother walther barrel that i think these pellets might suit . yes i have a good feeling about these pellets . ???

Well they are from the same stable that make their Olympic winning pellets so you never know.

I might have to make some direct enquiries about these ands see what the minimum is they'll ship to the UK...:grin:

Those are the same as the ones Ron at our club had the other week. He gave grandad a few to try in his 800. They looked well made but the skirts where thicker than average.
