I had a good look at one, the other day, and could find no difference from the R10.

I think a grouping and chrono test is the answer, but I don't think there'll be much difference.

Kind regards,



Phil

I need to remember to ask Bob to bring some along.

Like the R10 they come in rifle and pistol weights.

Kind regards,

Are these pellets readily available ? I might try some in the p80 when it returns from hospital. I'm using rws r10 match at 7.0gr at present.

Master Balls...according to google translate.

I have found these to be great pellets in a lot of target pistols.
The closest I can think of to spell it phonetically is my-ster-queue-gelln    

With the stress on the parts in italics.

It means Master (or Champion) Pellets. :)
Kugel can mean ball, sphere, slug, pellet, marble, shot, bullet.

I didn't know they still made them actually.

Bob (zooma) has imported a big batch, and he may post if you want a few tins.

I need to grab a tin for my comparisons.

Kind regards,

Our local model shop has always stocked and sold airgun pellets and currently "orders in" the Meisterkugeln pellets from the manufacturer as they are no longer imported into this country through the normal sources.

This helps the classic air pistol and air rifle shooters as the Meisterkugeln was often the number one choice when pistols such as the Feinwerkbau Model 65 were being used to win almost every event from local to international and to set world records.

Despite the huge improvements made in technical advances of air weapons design and the equally huge developments in the understanding of physical training and diet techniques the world records set by the Meisterkugeln pellets and the airguns used at that time have hardly advanced at all!

The newer RWS R10 pellets have replaced them as the "pellet of choice" with many target shooters in their PCP pistols and rifles, but the older design and shape of the Meisterkugeln often continues to give the best results in the classic air pistols and rifles.

The Meisterkugeln has recently been rediscovered by some of the PCP pistol and rifle shooters and some have switched away from their R10 pellets and moved over to Meisterkugeln (depending on what works best in their particular pistols) so the quality and consistency of this pellet remains at the highest level and it is now even considered good value for money!

The Meisterkugeln are also a couple of quid a tin less expensive than the R10 pellets so they are worth a try - its just that they are not so easy to find anymore and many of the current crop of shooters may not have even heard of them or know that they exist!

You can see them on this link to the shops online site http://www.rossmod.co.uk/c/2900/Pellets" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

plinkit hi; at the risk of being picky and not wishing to upset a fellow forum member, but I think the last two words in your phonetic break down should read ''coog - eln''. cheers bellringer
