'' I may well be wrong though''  Generously confirmed by Gambo. ;D

 Nice images. :)

 Those pellets my mate had were the plastic sleeves type. Maybe different colour.

  Them other glitzy ones...  do they have to be loaded with them tiny sticky out things lined up with the rifling?
I plink , therefore I am.

I recall the first Prometheus pellets had a chromed steel head, and yes, they'd penetrate anything.

Sadly however, being steel they'd also ricochet very easily......so later batches where changed to a softer, and safer, zinc alloy type head.

The early steel head Prometheus are very collectable, and fetch high prices on ebay.

Yeah.......I can remember finding used ones in the back garden, and the chrome heads had gone rusty! ;D
