    Common guys I know somone must at least buy the Barracuda Match in Pta, one of the staff at my regular gunshop suddenly believes that you only get the Barracudas round nose and that Match is flat nose pellets,he is sure that there is no such thing as a Barracuda Match pellet and therefore they cannot order me some!!!I have brought at least 7 tins from this shop in the past!

    I think in West Gate the is also a place that sells Air rifles and pellets, don't know the name, but I'm not sure if they will have but it might be worth a try.

    Try the JSP pellets, I used them 2 weeks ago when I and Jackal went hunting and the work well. They seem to be more flat shooting than the H&N Barracudas.

    I also think that they are made from a softer lead because they cause bigger exit wounds compaired to the H&N Barracudas at the same distance.

    Thanks for the advice guys, I appreciate it.I brought a tin of JSB heavies from importer a while back and they also did not shoot as well as the Barracuda Match in my gun. The odd thing is that I konw a guy in the UK who has the same setup as me but that his gun really loves the JSB Heavies. I love the BC of the JSB's which makes them a really flat shooting pellet but because they dont work in my gun I cant use them.

    You could give a place called Executool in Zambezi drive a try (012 - 548 7425). They sell all sorts of pellets and might be able to help. Good luck!

    A Diana 54, the CP Heavies are just as good a performer in my gun as the Barracudas, only diff is the Barracudas 4.50 are cleaner and the Barracudas goes into the barrel much much easier(less pressure on my seals), if I dont find any Barracudas by Thursday I will probably buy the Crosman Premier 10.5's. Guido you know how it is, if you like something and it works nothing will be a really good substitute.
