No don't remember them round our way,i used to travel to M.A.G to get a lot of mine.Our locals had mainly Eley Wasp,Milbro,Marksman some RWS & a  few H&N.
Had some cheap Gamo flatheads in a cream tin from Gunsport of Rotherham that were good for close range,better than todays versions.

Geez, that's a good selection.

The local hardware shop only sold boxes of 200 Marksman, or tins of 500 Caledonians, for those who had more pocket money to spend!!

The very occasional trip into Arthur Bales and Sons in Cardiff town centre, or Angler's Supplies on Penarth Rd, would then give the opportunity to buy quality pellets, in the form of Eley, H&N and RWS offerings. Those trips were few and far between though, so when these kinds of pellets were bought, they were saved for 'best', rather than just being plinked away.

I remember having kittens when the Sussex Sabo were first advertised in AGW, and then wet myself when I eventually bought a tin, from Anger's Supplies. :)
