Things I liked: Consistency Well shaped. Great flight round. If your guns got legs this is an excellent round.
Things I would have changed: Price point. But I guess we would have to give up some quality.
What others should know: Make sure as your cycling shots through trying to find the pellet for that picky rifle to include this one.
Things I liked: Pellet on pellet accuracy, no fliers, no bent skirts and better quality control compared to standard JSB's.
Things I would have changed: As most have stated a larger 500 pcs tin of pellets would be nice though I will admit the smaller size tin makes it easier to carry around.
What others should know: As most of you already know Air Arms pellets are made at the JSB factory with the only difference being that Air Arms owns their own dies. Now I've been shooting JSB's almost exclusively for years. I mention this because these AA pellets remind me of the older 'Grey Labeled' tins of JSB pellets that were so incredibly accurate in my guns. The newer JSB's are by no means bad and pretty much shoot the same as the AA pellets except for one major difference. Fliers! Yes, I was shocked to see that I got zero fliers while shooting the AA pellets. Where as with the standard JSB's I would get at least 1-2 fliers in a ten shot group. With the AA pellets I shot 5 ten shot groups with no fliers. There was no sorting of any kind, the only thing I did was wash the AA pellets as I do with all of my pellets. Other than that they were shot straight from the tin. While I do love the standard JSB pellets and like the larger 500 tins I will admit that I will be shooting the AA pellets from now on. Ymmv.
Things I liked: Consistent Pellet. The tins are clearly marked with the date of manufacture, batch number and machine center used. This allows you to police batches you like if they are still in stock. I ordered 4 tins to Canada, as nobody in the country sells these pellets. Three of the tins were from the same run and ARE ACTUALLY 5.52mm head diameter; confirmed with a PELLET GAGE. The forth tin is from a newer 2018 run and is 5.53mm in diameter. The newer tin shows a slightly cleaner tail with a little more flash around the outside of the pellet where it was made, and a brighter look. This is to be expected in a newer tin as they have been handled less. There are a couple in all tins with deformed tails; this happens in every tin of pellets. The important thing here is they are ALL THE SAME SIZE IN THE TIN.
Things I would have changed: Screw on lid to prevent disasters.
What others should know: The JSB exact heavies which are for all intent and purposes the same pellet made under the same roof but with different dies. The issue with them is The range anywhere from 5.49 - 5.54 in the same tin with majority being 5.50. Every single tin. This does not make for good consistent groups and lots of flyers. At least if they are the larger size they can be sized back to 5.52 with a die which is what I do. All the rest that are too small are no good in my gun which is 3/4 of the tins, and I had to bin them. I believe the runs are mixed together with JSB, and not so with AA Pellets. This is reason enough to pay for the AA brand.
