    Yes, I was also slightly puzzled at Gary's modus operandi, AB.

    Nothing I've seen so far makes me warm to any of the lead free fodder currently available.

    On the other site I have compared lead free Baracudas with Baracuda lights - 10 shots of each at 40yds. Long story short is the lead free group was close to twice the diameter (4 times the area) of the lead group. Leaded Baracuda lights a 10mm group and PB free 20mm - not awful but not great....

    Prometheus

    I wonder why we haven't seen any lead free Dymanic air bullets given that H&N bought Prometheus

    Or did they just turn this design in to lead pellets ?

    H&N obtained a wealth of knowledge from Hugh Earl

    They must have something up their sleeves or in the pipe line.

    Thank you for sharing that with us, Frog.

    I take my hat off and applaud anyone who is willing to undertake this sort of testing at the moment. Personally I'm reluctant to put any of this lead free stuff down any of my existing barrels until (and, hopefully, it might not happen?) I have to. But I appreciate the selfless sacrifice and expense that people like yourself are going to.

    Again, nothing that I've seen results-wise on the lead free stuff instills confidence.

    Hopefully we get to swerve this lead free nonsense. But if not, surely the makers have got it covered?

    Wish they did, personally Id prefer lead free rounds. The Dynamic 4.46 versions were very respectable through my S410 over 20m and had no problems at dispatching vermin. Through my new r10 SE all the current lead free offerings (x7) were pretty shocking including BSAs own. The results were so bad Im worried I might have a lemon until I try it with lead. Seems such a pity that these shiny beautifully made rounds are comparatively useless.
