Great hitting power
Thin skirt which can deform easily
Webley Lazadome have got to be the pellets on the market. I have tried loads of different pellets from RWS H-Points to Eley Wasps to Crossman Accupells but I keep coming back to Webley Lazadomes.
They are domed pellets with a fairly long, flared skirt. Inside the skirt is a large flat area, rather like an Accupell. This makes them easier to see when fired from a gun with a lamp fitted.
I particularly like the finish of these pellets, very smooth, no ridges or indentations in the skirts. As they are pre-lubed they have a semi-shiny look about them and are silky to the touch. Some of them have very slight flash markings but these are still smooth to the touch, its like somebody has drawn a very feint pencil line down the pellet, it doesn't affect accuracy at all.
And they are accurate, I have lost count of the amount of rabbits I have taken with Lazadomes. I use a Webley Tracker (gas rammed), Air Arms Pro Elite and a brand new Air Arms TX200HC (all in 0.22) and they all function at their best with Lazadomes.
The thin skirt can deform easily if you drop the tin. However, a deformed skirt counts for nothing as the pressure of the air behind the pellet during firing blows the skirt into the rifling anyway.
These pellets seem to be of a consistent weight and are very smooth. Also there is no crud swimming about the tin like you get with Accupells. I would recommend these pellets over any other for hunting. They pack a good punch and ensure hunting is as humane as possible (and that can't be a bad thing).
