Possibly a silly question guys, but has anyone tried the larger pellets as a replacement for Eley Wasps?

I use the larger head sizes of H&H FT Trophy as a 'plan B' for 5.6 Eley Wasps, John.

I have to say I've never tried the Defiants though, so they may be even better.

I've added them to my up and coming .177 tests as I'm getting low on my favoured pellet and will report my findings once all the deliveries are here

Got Defiants in .177 and .22 Cal, 3 head sizes in each (trial packs)

I try them in all recently acquired rifles and although good, there was only one gun where they came out top ! Think it was a HW 97KT in .177 however as it was so close to JSB's which I use frequently in most guns, I stuck to those.
A bit unfair really but I didnt fancy buying more Defiants.
Oh, there was one gun that absolutly hated them, a Theo, SLR 98 in .177. the mag/underlever mechanism literally "chewed 'em up" !
Nowt wrong with the gun, it performed brilliantly with other pellets !
