    I thought AA Field's and JSB Exact is the same mould. But according to the cut through's it's not. I wonder where i got this wrong.

    Goose, The best would be to make your own cuts in to the pellets to confirm what is shown above. That photo is posted a long time ago.

    The problem is Gerrief, sometimes you find a certain pellet that's perfect for you and then suddenly you can't get it anymore for some reason. Then you must know which one to replace it with. Like the FX, now you can't get it anymore, and I was using it with great success. What then???

    Goose,
    You go to either AA or Exacts. They are the same thing. Hundreds of thousands of them gets used to great success over the world. Read on some of the overseas forums and you will see how few people believe all the non sense we still believe in, in this country about weighing pellets and measuring the head sizes. The biggest (98=%) of them buy a tin of pellets of their choice and shoot full scores out of the tin, no washing no nothing. The difference is they can shoot. The same here. If you can shoot, you will hit the mark with any decent rifle or pellet, no matter what the head size. One less thing to worry yourself into a coma about. Start enjoying your shooting!!!!

    You will not beat the normal dome nose pellet for any application you can think of, at a reasonable distance(up to about 50m) on normal air rifle vermin targets. The problem is that out rifles are too powerful and we have over penetration, not under penetration as widely and wrongly believed.

    I dont think over penetration is too much of a problem, depends on whether you want to kill it, or just knock it out for a few minutes. WOUNDING IS NOT ALLOWED.

    Harry,
    I believe you. Those are the only sharp point pellets I came across that are accurate out to those distances.
    Brian,
    When we were lities we shot 400-550 ft/sec rifles. If you connected a pigeon it tumbled out of the tree and was dead on the spot. Now the pellet whisles right through and the pigeon fly off to make an emergency landing 500m away, most of the times, unless your shot placement was spot on.
