    I realise that some people dont think that this is a great idea but the idea is for people to be able to see what works best in ther gun, if people put down size of groups then much of the size of the group will be as a result of the shooters ability. Those of you who are very experienced will be getting muh tighter groups than people who have not been shooting long. Therefore if people put what groups best then that goes somewaay to eliminate the problem of shooters ability.

    I have now finnished my GCSE's so I have more free time and if there are still people out there who think this is a good ide then please add to the list and I will keep adding them to the website.

    Thanks,

    Toby

    Mate it's a nice idea and I didn't mean to rubbish the idea. It's just that if someone thinks Milbro Caledonians group well then all that tells us is that they don't know what grouping well is and it could lead to some poor bugger going out and buying some!

    The thing about fidning the best pellet is that it has to be done from a bench or in some way supported so as to take as much of the a shooter out of the equation.

    That given, providing group sizes is helpful and gives some frame of reference.

    Obviosly I realise that this is not a way to know the exact brand that WILL work best it is just to narrow down the choice a little, hopefully it will save acouple of people time and money.

    Thanks for your views, they are much apreciated and respected.

    Thanks,

    Toby

    Wow now that's some figures.

    Seems like your T10 doesn't like Air Arms Field 4.51s

    That's very interesting though Al. Good stuff.

    My .177" Mk3 TX200 HC has no problems with Crosman Premiers.

    I know I'm far from the world's greatest shot (barely had the rifle 5 weeks), but I still pulled off a group that was 1/2" (by a hair) at 20 yards (outdoors) using them from prone - took me a while though, there must have been whole minutes between some shots.
