    H&N Barracudas also known as Beeman Kodiaks or Bisley Magnums are probably the best pellets to use in PCPs shooting above 15ft\lbs.
    They weigh in at 10.6gr and come in sized tins in the Barracuda Match range [4.50 , 4.51 and 4.52]
    They are too heavy for springers except maybe the Diana 48\52 variants.

    We need to find some heavy .177 pellets...that is why I am looking at the Eun Jin 16grainers...should be good for 29ft\lbs out of a Steyr or Talon.

    Another option would be to swage some heavy pellets using Corbin dies and press...an alternative I have been thinking about.

    JSB is relaunching their 10.5 grain Exacts...should be receiving some test tins soon with the shipment of Exacts...will keep you all posted.

    hmmm, sounds good, ganna have to make a turn past the old gun shop tomorrow.
    Was speaking to a chap by the name of Jason today, he own a shooting range out Midrand way. He was saying that the ultra magnam were great at 30yards but at 50 the things were all over the place, he also recommended the Barracudas, told me that shots at 50 yards had a 12mm grouping.
