Hi I have been using the above pellets and recently the last 2 tins or so the skirt has been bent on about 20% of the pellets I know they are soft but as I buy my pellets over the counter at a gunshop and treat them well I was wondering if any of you guys have had the same problem. I am now back on the RWS Superdome as they are a bit sturdier. Thanks
Its all i use in my mk3 .22,mainly cos its the best jsb pellet i can buy locally.
buy 1 tin if they have less than 10% bent ones buy 10 tins of the same batch.
when i have had them mail order i got nearly 50% skirt damaged
Read up.there was a post on here recently saying partially dented skirts dont make a blind bit of difference.
I tried it.shoot 10 perfect pellets and then shoot 10 slightly bent ones
hope this helps..........
90% of my money went on fast women and slow horses, the rest i just wasted. George Best.
I already asked the same question in my dented pellets thread a few days ago. As most people agreed a slightly dented won't really matter as the skirt is blown into the rifling when the gun is fired.
Airgunner magazine is giving away a free pellet seater with this issue which does work wonders with Lazadomes, especially with a break barrel.
Hope this answers your question.

About 10 years ago, my brother ordered 5000 Magnums from a well known shop. When they arrived, ALL the tins were dented, and loads of the pellets in each tin were squashed. When my brother complained, the shop owner told him to sort through the pellets, and send back the dented ones! My brother obviously refused, and he was eventually sent 5000 more, which arrived OK. I then proceeded to shoot the supposedly duff pellets for many years, with no problems at all. I even did tests with Premiers, squashing the skirts till they nearly touched. My TM100's loading probe sometimes pulled them back out of the breech they were so squashed, but I still hit a 40mm spinner @55 yards every time. 170 bar up the skirt tends to make even out such problems... Wouldn't suggest deliberatly buggering up your pellets, but it does prove you shouldn't worry too much if skirts are a little out of shape, it's the head that important.
just boaght a tin today ..£5 for 250
first thing i noticed was a few were slightly dented/squashed a bit,
but ive shot worse
never actualy used the lazadomes before,most will be going through my stealth, so i guess the dints wont matter
lots of takedowns
Whoever is charging you a fiver for 250 Lazadomes is ripping you off.
I get mine for £3.20 for 250 pellets and I live waaaaaaay up in the far north of Scotland.

Hi Thanks for the replies. What I was trying to get at was do they get damaged during packing or manafaction in the factory or is it in the dispatch phase because I have used air arms field which are also very soft but have had no damaged ones the same for superdomes which come from germany I was just wondering wether there is a problem with just lazadomes thanks again.
I'm sure they leave the factory in good condition but are damaged during transportation to shops.
As you said yourself the skirts are very soft and this, combined with the weight of all the pellets, is probably what causes them to be easily damaged during transportation.

As these pellets all come from the same place (JSB- Czech republic) it's more likely to be a transportation problem. The only people having real problems will be those of us using multishots, they can be a real bugger to seat in the magazine. I save the few dodgy AA Fields I get and use them in my pistols.
