What is so secret that you can't post it for all to see? If you become a member you can send private messages.

Hello John
The difference between pistol-pellets and rifle-pellets is not just the weight. We test all batches in our factory through different rifles and pistols.
If we then find out that a batch in average shoots better in rifles (it is mostly the heavier weight) we then label it as a rifle-pellet. Otherwise as a pistol-pellet.

It is right, that sometimes the weight of both types differ only a little bit or even not. The reason is also the better technology in airpistols with their higher speed in last times.

Be shure that a golden label is (in average) better for rifles and a blue label (in average) is better for pistols.

Hope this informations could help you.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/With best regards

Betreff: H&N Pistol Pellets


Hi, last year after much research I purchased 3 sleeves of pistol pellets. Half were Gold .53/818 and the other Blue.49/7.56..

Well, recently having a problem with my Air Pistol, so in the process of trying to resolve my problem I decided to check pellet velocity. That lead to weighting pellets.

Low and behold the weights were surprising, the gold weighted an average of 8.0 grams, an average of 30 pellets on 2 different scales and 2 different people. I then checked the Blue and to my amazement they weighted just about the same and a few hundredths more than the .53 gold, which they should be weighing less.


Can you tell what happen and is this normal to find the Blue weighing more than the Gold. It does not seem right to me.

Thanks for any help and information that you can provide.

John Kumiega

Very interesting! I shoot H&N Finale Match Special Selected Airpistol Pellets in one of my AP. Have always wondered why H&N did not show the weight on the tin, though they are typically sold as 'light' or as 7.56grain. I just weighed ten and they came to 7.45 grain (0.48 gram). They seem to be good pellets.

That was interesting. I have been shooting air pistols and rifles for quite a few years and never knew that little bit of info. Thanks for sharing that with us.

I was once told. Shoot the lightest pellets you can find in your pistol.

While on the subject of pellet comparisons

The technophiles amongst us have a field day with measurements and chronometry .

I have always wondered if pellet skirt diameter relative to the barrel is important . The rifling effects stability of the projectile and its trajectory . it follows that a good fit will ensure stable flight .

Is this a factor , or is pellet weight the overriding consideration ?

Apparently, there are NO factors that influence pellet accuracy at our level. There is only ONE overriding criteria for selecting the most accurate pellet (this from a pellet manufacturer): the LOT number as determined by actual test in your gun. Forget brand, weight, diameter or anything else you've heard or read. As you can see from "Guests" post, even the manufacturer doesn't care in the least about pellet weight, only test lot.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
