General Comments
I bought a tin of these in 5.52, along with Bisley Magnums when I first got my Daystate X2 0.22. A pure chance that I got them - its' what the shop had in stock.

i then bought a Pellpax selection set (32 different types of pellets, 10 of each) with a view to finding the best for my gun.

I found anything not dome head doesn't load into the magazine very well and some positively jammed or failed to load into the breech at all. I think it's the O Ring retainer in the magazine that's the problem.

The biggest discovery was that the consistency of the AA Fields was by far the best of anything I tried.

Next tins were in 5.51 and in my gun there was absolutely no detectable difference. I have seen it written that they are very soft, which would help create a good seal in the barrel and be tolerant of size variations in barrels.

All in all - it'll be a long time before I try anything else. Fantastic!
