Comes as no surprise to me. I,ve found the odd, different shape as well.  As for sizes and weights , forget it. I spent two days weighing and measuring JSB Exacts. The weight,s , .177 calibre , varied from 8.3 to 8.8 grains.  And the head sizes were all over the place, with NONE measuring the stated size on the tin. ALL measured under 4.5 mm , with most measuring 4.48mm . There have been some interesting articles in the mags that have confirmed my findings. A couple were using a very accurate gauge made by The Pellet Gauge Company in the USA . These have holes, accurate to within a few microns , in which you place the pellets. I first learn, t of this device on a sadly now deceased Web site called Varmintair. He came to the same conclusions. The main difference i,ve found has been the depth of lead inside the pellet skirt. And that even varies between the same so called head size. Which probably explains why people , on finding an accurate pellet , go out and buy a load from the same die. Having weighed and measured most of the popular pellets , I found the most consistent to be Crosman  Premier.

You,re right Franky. Back in the nineties I used Premiers in my springers and Accupels in my Homebuilt FT rifle ( which I still use ). I won a shed load of trophies using them, including the Hertfordshire Open title in 1999.

Annoyingly, it seems every batch of JSB/AAF is different to the last.

I found a batch of 5.52 AAF that suited my FN19 superbly, as the 'diaphragm' (depth of lead) up inside the skirt was much more than on other batches. I call these the 'Deep Filled' pellets, and bought as many tins as I could.....got about 10 or so tins in stock just for use out of that rifle, which is just as well, as I've never seen any JSB produced ammo like them since. :-\

Thankfully, I have.

I've marked those tins 'Falcon' so they don't get used in anything else......coz when they're gone, it's anyone's guess as to when JSB will produce a similar batch again! ::) :-\
