    No Tony, but the company claim they offer "lazer flat trajectory and pinpoint accuracy" so they must be good !
    Look a bit like Accupells.

    The blurb on the tin says " probably the most consistent pellet you can buy ". The question is if it is consistently good or consistently bad?

    The thing is it's a pellet, same pellet shape, same pellet aerodynamics etc. If they are made more consistently then, if due to their dimensions and material properties they happen to fit your barrel, they may prove to be a success. If they don't fit your barrel then they will not as they will be consistently bad.

    We have recently had some samples of the ProShot range of pellets - overall quality looks good. Has anybody used them?

    Cheers.

    I had a quick look at the site and didn't see that statement (not that it isn't there, just that i didn't spend too long looking).......if that claim is on there then that alone is enough for me to doubt the company.

    They class the 'heavy' as 8.48 gr and the Spanish contact info makes me think...possibly...Gamo?

    Why be awkward, when with a little bit of effort you can be really impossible!

    The pellets look H&N to me, I'd say it's someone trying to set up an on-line one stop shooting supplies business by re-branding bought in products.

    My thoughts too - a quote taken from their site
    The level of quality is maintained by rigorous inspections during manufacture throughout each process, and once made only the best pellets are picked to ensure each pellet is the best that is currently available.
    Now, where have I read that (or very similar)? Oh yes - a quote from the JSB site
    "The quality control of the products is done throughout the whole process of pellets processing...control all products undergo hand-picked quality control.
    Mmmmm

    Just ordered a couple of tins so will wait and see.
    You can spend thousands and still miss a barn door or spend just enough and enjoy yourself. If you haven't got the talent to start with a million pound won't fix it. Whippet, Russell, a few bang sticks and a flat cap. http://www.smart-tech1st.co.uk
