    Depends purely on which rifle I use. My Steyr likes AA 4.52s and the AA HP love the JSB (.20 cal)

    Both these pellets are manufactured by JSB to the same specifications and use the same forming dies! They are also produced for Daystate and for FX.

    I must disagree with you on this one Importer. Look at a jsb and aa field from the back, different dies for sure. From the same factory yes, but that is where it stops.

    AA have their own die at the JSB factory so their pellets are slightly different...or were slightly different since I believe their die wore out and now may be identical to JSBs....

    I agree with you lewis.....

    The JSB factory uses "similar shape" forming dies and probably also does the same process of quality control, but they are surely not the same pellets....!!!!!
    The same reason I would not want to mix the AA and the JSB in one tin....
    Performance-wise they are similar, but some rifles prefer one or the other , or even 4.52 / 4.53 head size.....

    Falco, you must decide which one your rifle favours by shooting different pellet type, sizes, weights etc until you are satisfied with the results......

    According Air Arms they are the same. I therefore accept that the information supplied to me is correct.

    Please bear in mind that no two dies will ever be exactly the same just as no two rifles of the same make and model will ever be exactly the same.

    Falco use whatever your rifle prefers. Air arms can claim what they want, they are not the same. If you look at the back you will see they have totaly different cavities. Try both and in different head sizes if possible, the pellet giving the best grouping out of your rifle is the best pellet for you.
    My Dommie likes JSB 4.53.
    Also look at what brand of pellet is easiest to get hold of in your neck of the woods, on a consistent basis.

    Check out the JSB web site [link=hyperlink url]http://web.telecom.cz/schulz/main_e.htm[/link]. Any company can order and they will customize the label and logo there for I agree with Importer. Therefore the UltraTec is also form the JSB factory and shoots the same.[blockquote]Packing:

    Basic packing is according to the price list. 10 packing boxes are in company case. 5 company cases are packed into the shipping box of approximate weight of 15 kg.
    Company cases could be avoided by paper packing of 10 packing boxes and 5 paper packing in shipping box (i.e. 50 packing boxes).
    Packing boxes could be equipped with on-option company logo or marking according to the customer design.
