WOW, those look the biz!!

With all what's going on with the design, I'd wager long range accuracy won't be especially great......but at short to medium range I'd bet they'd be devastating hard hitters.

Pity they are only available in the smallest calibre at the mo........but fingers crossed bigger version come on sale soon..

i think one of the reasons behind that pellet is that all game that enters the human food chain (commercially) cannot have come into contact with lead, that comes into force next year here in the uk, there are game dealers that are already loosing money over it as they have game in freezers a year or two in advance so when this law kicks in they will have 2 years worth of game they can only sell as pet food.

Interesting.

As you say Uggs that will have dire consequences for the game food industry.....yet another example of the 'know fcuk all' politicians thinking that they actually know better than everyone else and balls-ing things up!! Grrrrr.

They obviously think that people who enjoy eating game are too thick to have the sense to remove any lead shot from something before eating it!!!

What about venison.....I guess dear will have to be shot with non-lead bullets if it's to go on the table?

Where will it all end!!!! ::) ::)

Geez......no lead gun clubs huh!!

I think I'd give up shooting if lead ammo was banned.....coz I've never used any lead free ammo that was anywhere near as good as lead  for accuracy or energy retention.
