    Haven’t tried them myself, but they will indeed fit the Condor although they may be tough to seat. They are basically a pulled bullet in shape and used to be sold in the UK but were stopped a number of years ago. For the price I would say that they offer nothing that can’t be done with an Eun Jin for a 1/4 of the price.

    They are indeed available in the UK again. This is the cheapest place I could find for them.

    Pricey, but I’ve been keen to try them nonetheless. Just need to put my rifle back together first….

    If they are pulled bullets, it will be a bitch to seat them in an airgun barrel. I will be surprised if their accuracy would not suffer either based on my experience with (too) tight fitting pellets. JMHO

    These sound alot like 22lr rounds i’ve tried. Tough to pull without damage to the lead. Tight fit, very but i can get them in the barrel. I’ve tried this a couple of times for penetration testing. Out penetrated any pellet by a good amount. I was using old coffee cans to see how many i could punch through, heavy gauge tin. 2.5 cans is my best through 2 cans and into one side of a third. The .22lr went through all 3 cans and left a decent divot in my concrete wall. Can’t speak of accuracy, but would like to try a couple of rounds. Nice as you can get these in 30g through 60g. Rabbits would love to see a pic. I think the tight fit helps as there is little to no wasted air, and at 30g that packs a wallop. Funny thing is they slide right through a crosman barrel.

    In my Condor the only .22cal solid pellet that would fit where the Condor specials from pyramydair.(pelletman)
    they measure .2162
    I tried the other solid pellets like the 30gr round nose and the 35gr hollow point but they would not fit. You could force them in with a penny but that was a bitch.
    they measure .2167

    I still have some left over from 2004.

    Sumatra loves the 35gr HP solid pellets.
    They didn’t fit my crosman. 🙁

    right lads here,s a pic off the two pellets i use . on the left hand side u will c a wasp magnum 30.6grans for the longer shot,s and on the right u will c a bisley magnum 21.4 grans for normal shooting .the pellet that we r talking about is the wasp magnum and when pushed into my condor barrel u r left with a mm off skirt out the barrle and i find it no probs to use it like this with great results ..

    Would like to see as well, if its not to much trouble. Have you ever chronied them? being such a tight fit, i’d bet they leave the muzzle with some authority.

    Sluggo, its a wonder what a thousandths of an inch will do. I’d like to get a trashed barrel and use it for sizing the lr rounds. Thought even to mic all the unjacketed brands i could find, just to see if 1 would fall into the tolerence range. Funny thing is i tried an old .22 crosman barrel and the bullet slides right through 😯 . Thought i was slick for a minute. It beats spending .10 a round, if i can find one brand which runs smaller then the rest i’m set. May yet drill out some ali/brass tubing to the right dia and size with that, not a major priority just another on the list projects to do.

    Rabbit, is it possible you got the left and right one backwards? It just seems odd that the one on the left weighs less than the one on the right. Is the one on the left hollow inside?
