Did anyone read the Milbro Pellet tests in November's issue of Airgun Shooter ?
It states that the Caledonian's shot a <3.0 mm group from a Feinwerkbau 300S at 10 meters.
Can this be possible ?
I thought they were cheapo plinking pellets.
My Logun Solo is only any good with AA Field,I've tried all sorts of other pellets,but it spits them all over the place.
I wasted another fiver last weekend when I saw some Elley Wasps. (Through Rose tinted glasses,thinking I was 14 again I bought a tin)! They came out like a shotgun spread.
It would be great to get some very cheap pellets,but do they really exist ?
Your views please.
Was the test tin bought from a shop or was the manufacturer asked to supply one?

It sounds daft but sometimes you find a pellet/gun combination that just works better than you'd expect. I've got Record Jumbo pistol that shoots well with Marksman Pointed pellets, and no other gun I have shoots them very well. I've got an old Webley Mk3 rifle in .22 that shoots well with Milbro TR, and again, not many pistols or rifles will shoot those accurately either. I tried some Milbro Select in my BSA super ten and got some very good groups, the main group was surprisingly small but unfortunately there were one or two fliers out of twenty or so shots outside the main group. People slag off Milbro pellets but in some guns they can be surprisingly good. Milbro Match are very accurate in my Record Champion and feed from the magazine more reliably than Hobbies or Bisley Practise too.
Caledonians are ok in my lower powered guns - diana 25, baikal 38 etc - through the Ultra they're a joke. I think they can't take the pressure from a full powered gun.
.22 marksman roundheads are one of the most accurate in my milbro G25 rat splatter, more so than AAF.
