this has got me thinking now. as i thought nothing had changed with my set-up but then i remembered i removed the shroud on my R10 about the same time as it went off the defiants. so could have been down to barrel harmonics or the void the pellet goes through in the shroud before it enters the moderator. who knows ? .

Only through re-testing will answer that Geezer.

Did the drop off in accuracy coincide with a change of pellet batch?

Never seen these before, but they look a bit like the thunderbolts (i mean in shape) I listened to all the hype about the thunderbolts and as soon as they came out in PC form i went and got some. Have to say I dont like them and didnt see any difference in speed etc.

So I take it these are lead? do they come in .177 in 7.9 or 8.4?

Defiants - Bullet Shaped Pellets

Defiants are Variants of the Exterminators

Which are made out of Tin -

Which for some was to Light - resulting in longer pellets

Bullet Design - is far better than Wasted - Fly's straighter and faster and uses less Puff

Does need to find Rifling - so works far Better when there is a dry Clean Action and Barrel

Also Not a issue with Batches - As made on Single Die Machines

Dies last many Millions in production

Different Set's for different Head Sizes

Are made from Qualilty Lead Wire - on a machines that pre measures Slug before Stamping

Reason not copied as Pax Patented Design   ;) -   World Wide  -
