Graeme has found the same accuracy with CP's in his .177 Verminator as you may have read. I've not shot a springer for many years now, that was also a .22.

Just weighed 150 of the 5.51 AA Fields out of interest before getting rid and I must admit I'm very impressed! They were all between 15.82gr and 16.02gr - except for 2 pellets at 15.70 & 15.72. I'll be picking some 5.52's up in the next couple of days to try out :).

Hi Ian,

How reliable have you found your scales when re weighing.?. I may be tempted to buy a set .. Consistency is more use to me than out and out accuracy, mine have a mind of there own at times.

Not too bad at all Graeme considering the price, I weighed a random selection from the HE's the other day, pellet 1 (an actual weighing) was 14.86, did a few more and re-weighed, it came out as 14.84, removed it and repositioned it in the middle of the scales and it went back to 14.86. Don't waste your time trying to use the supplied weighing pan, I looked at it after reading that others had experienced issues with it, anyway the pellets sit just fine on the flat weighing surface ;)

They do not give absolutely 100% repeatable accuracy - they are cheap scales, but they are miles better than some I have seen in use. The ultimate scales would cost a couple of hundred uk pounds (minimum) upward, I think overall that these ones are very good for the money.

Got myself another 5 tins of FX 5.52 16gr pellets and decided for the hell of it to do a bit more weighing. The tin with 499 total was due to one pellet with a damaged skirt.


I've split them into two weight lots for using, 15.70 - 15.89 and 15.90 - 16.00. Fortunately there weren't many of the 15.50 to 15.60 pellets, I've put them in a separate tin for re-leading the barrel if I need to.

Oh and they seem to have stopped using the black plastic containers and replaced them with standard tin ones - still got the sexy black label though 8-)
