Oh, I can hardly wait for the obsessive-compulsives to start including these things in their definitive comparos.

I'm glad I bought a lifetime supply of JSBs from Bori - don't have to bother my pretty little head about such things.

C'mon William, you know we love such things so we can hunch over our keyboards sipping and snickering.

Did you notice that ELY authoritatively stated that pellet size mattered and the single weight they offer is the optimum one?

Think of the anguish among the TT posters!!!

Does anyone know if they are actually made by Eley? Previously they just sold re-branded H&N pellets in Eley tins.

The trick is using all three diameters. Only the sage older shooters realize that when you start a match with a clean barrel you need to shoot your sighter and first 20 pellets for record with the largest pellets. The next 20 should be exactly 4.5 because lead is building up. The last 20 should be fired with the smaller diameter (4.49) because of the added lead build up. Of course this only works if the range temperature is exactly 72 degrees. If it is warmer or colder the calculations change. I believe Rover has a conversion table.

They are handmade by elfs in the black forest and you get 450 per box

Brummies in the black country more like.

For US readers, that means Birmingham residents and the old industrial heartlands in the midlands of England.

They would need to have a guidance system for me to part with £15 for 450, foam lined box or not.
Face it, the only reason folk buy those fancy flat boxes of R10 is for the box not the pellets!

Eley came in way too late in the game. The pellet market is dominated by H&N and RWS.

People are curious and may purchase these pellets to try them out, but they'll go back to their preferred brand...

I think they should ditch the foam or make the box larger to stuff in the other 50 pellets, not many people are willing to pay more for less...lol

Yeah, but think of how many TT folks will buy, knowing that their pellets will be well rested after reclining in foamy luxury. They will shoot them better knowing they have lovingly cared for them. Or similar BS you see on here.

I believe every word of it. I will buy them because I believe it, I will shoot better scores because I believe it.

At $20.66 per box, I damn well better shoot higher scores.

Rover, care to help in a groundbreaking scientific study? Definitely not BS. I believe that for best accuracy pellets be shot at precisely the same latitude as where they were produced. When the lead is formed, Coriolis force is imparted to it which affect its rotational characteristics. This can interact positively or negatively with the earth's rotation depending on latitude.

I have my world map laid out (Mercator Projection, of course), and I'm searching along latitude 43.1026° N for potential pellet manufacturers. So far Bilbao, Spain; Almaty, Kazakhstan; and Vladivostok, Russia are the best bets.

Like I said - definitely not BS.

Close, but it is actually where the lead is mined that matters....

Of course. How did I miss that?

Presumably that means you could use lead from two distant mines & tune the alloy for your specific location...

You would want the lead from both sides of the equator to negate the Coriolis effect on the pellet spin.
