AADF pellet sizes

AADF pellet sizes

Postby dazzler » Sat Aug 12, 2017 8:30 pm

Apologies if this is in the wrong place, can't find a dedicated pellet section.

I have tins of these pellets, but all the tins state 4.5mm, yet I have been informed today that different sizes are available. i.e.4.51 - 4.52.

Is this so, and if it is, why isn't this marked on the tins? Or is it, and I have just bought the 4.50 size?

Thanks for your help,

A very confused Bobby.

Its a generic tin for all sizes. The sizes are on a label on the bottom of the tin,

Cheers BBF.

I'm a complete lunatic. Check the bottom of the tin, and there is the info.

Thanks again

Just be aware that the sizes labeled (4.51 / 4.52 etc) in reality do not in any measurable way relate to the actual sizes in said tin!. Be that maximum size, minimum size, spread of sizes or proportion of a specific size!.
I am not alone in having spent time on the analysis and all whom have done so report the same findings (analysis on my part limited to AA & JSB brands but, given the process of manufacturing I cannot believe any others to be different).
The only worthwhile reference in trying to find and subsequently repurchase a good batch for your individual gun is to use the batch number in its entirety (including the year).
Have fun ;)
