Love 'em.

I really like your close ups. Nice job.

Man I went to your website and you're a really good photographer. I really enjoy taking pictures of flowers and landscapes. Maybe sometime, if you're not too busy I could send you one of my pics and hear what you think about it?

no problem, thanx for the pellets midnightsniper!

the gallery can only exist if people are able to spend some pellets, what is important for us all before buying

the gallery will be updated once a week.

I think the producers/manufacturers don´t want to have exact pics of their pellets on the internet, because by this macrofotos you can see every bug they produce  ;)

Thanks,

Post by: herb1836 on February 23, 2011, 07:18:19 AM
Very nice reference and I know a lot of effort was put into this.

Small suggestion. You really should include pictures of the pellet tins. Even if someone doesn't have the setup to take nice macro shots of the pellets, they must surely be able to snap a legible picture of the tin.

The pellet names are a mess. For instance there are pellets named H&N Field Target Trophy, H&N Field Target, H&N Field & Target Trophy, H&N Trophy Hunter, H&N Trophy Green, H&N Trophy Power, and so on... !!

Some of the confusion is caused by the vendors. For instance Beeman just redid the 0.177 Laser so it is now a wadcutter instead of a domed pellet. Go figure...

(http://cdn.pyramydair.com/images/zoomed/Beeman-Laser-177cal-300ct_BN-49177_pellet_zm1.jpg)

What is a guy to do to figure this out?!?

Regards,
Herb

hallo herb. I can make pictures of the pellet tins, if I get them, but if not ......

if you can give me legal pictures, so I we can use it. I don´t want to have problems with copyrights

mistakes can happen, but where do you see in my list: H&N Field & Target Trophy ???

I hope you understand, that I´m not a millionair and I can´t buy all pellets. I need donations to upgrade my work. You are also invited to spend some pellets + pellet containers.

I think I understand... I'm not a millionaire either. Copying pictures off the web has such a bad rap that it is hard to figure out a way to use the information without annoying and alienating the very folks whom you are asking/depending upon for cooperation.

I was trying to suggest that if someone is interested enough to send you some pellets that you ask for a picture of the tin. Even if it isn't a super advertising quality shot,  the tin should be recognizable enough. The close-ups that you have taken through require skill that most of use don't have.

Great close up pellet pictures!!!!
I especially liked the inside views showing all the junk inside some of the pellets.
Being new to air gun target shooting, it will help a lot picking the right pellets.
Thanks

Hello... I'm new to this forum.

I just wanted to thank you for posting these pics and info. It helped me decide which pellets to order. I ordered six very different types today and am looking forward to testing them all.

H&N Crow Magnum
H&N Diablo Sport Wadcutter
Elko Hyper Velocity
Predator Big Boy Sr.
Prometheus Piledriver
Prometheus Dynamic XP-2

ETA: I guess I should state that the modest air rifle I ordered has a rifled barrel and 28 lb/ft of energy. The rifling twist rate isn't advertised.

Great pictures that just go to show that the build quality is directly linked to price. Goodness knows, some of them are approaching the price of .22LR rounds! I may as well bin the air gun and get the live rounds out! By the way, does anybody know how the 'better' pellets are made? I have some fairly capable workshop machinery and would like to have a go at making my own. By the looks of it, the cheaper ones are struck in a two part die. I suppose if the 'blanks' are cut over size, then any excess can be trimmed from an 'expansion hole' although I can't see any evidence of trimming on manufactured ones. Then there is 'rolling'. I think this will give a more uniform pellet but is probably a complicated and expensive set up. Can anyone post a link to Youtube or other that demonstrates manufacture?
Cheers,

I believe most production pellets are swaged. Don't know much about the process, and I've not found much information on the Web.

Just had the chance to browse through the pellet database gallery.  This is just  'priceless' information.  Never ever have I seen such a complete  encyclopedia of pellets and the pics are just so awesome. Photography is another of my hobbies and this work is just so incredible.  Congratulations and THANK YOU for the great effort and time invested to give us such complete information.

I know this is a bit old but there is a video on youtube of a English gentelman that machines the swagging dies and makes a 5 place lead mold to cast the blanks. At first I thought he made little batches of the pellets then sold them on ebay but he's selling the mold and dies at not too unreasonable a price...considering what we are paying for other things for this "inexpensive" hobby  :P

Seeing pellets under consideration that are not available locally is GREAT!

And also the very poor formed that should not be considered.
