    Default Hand sorted pellets

    Do they really make such a difference?
    Which manufacturers are offering them?

    I may be wrong but I think you will have to do it yourself.Talk to Urabus , a while nack he found the Daystate's to be the best from pellet to pellet.

    i was under the impression that "match" or "premier" pellets are hand sorted..........but realistically highly unlikely i reckon.
    as gerrief suggested b4, these are prob just the earlier batches when the die is still new. ie better quality...etc

    JSB do "hand" sort (ie some one checks batches and tosses out the obiously deformed ones) some of their pellets. The best pellest, that is pellets that have the same shape and mass are from the same Die, this gives you a uniform (we are only talking quality pellets here) pellet that will perform the same way each time shot to shot. Not many pellets are die sorted because of expense. You can "Die sort" your own pellets by wieght, this will give you as near as the same die.

    The last time I looked R2600.Or you can get a reloading balance scale R500.The cheaper option will take way more time.

    Only a powder scale eh? For that price I want to know how many atoms the pellet contains...

    How accurate are these scales? How many decimals?

    Does anybody weigh and sort their pellets?
    Gerrief doesn't count, cause he uses Silvo to shine them up..
