I've not tried the Deviants personally, so I can't really comment. They look like a stumpy JSB Exact, the skirts seem a little badly formed and scraggy but that doesn't seem to affect the groups.

This was on a BFTA GP course so the majority of the targets were out past 40 yards - I'd say that on the sub 40 yarders they shot about as well in the wind as Exacts - but out past that I was having to give more wind than the lad I shot round with who was using Exacts - not a particularly scientific test, but after 50 targets it was enough to convince me that they offer an advantage in terms of trajectory but apparently no advantage in terms of bucking the wind and my gut feeling was that they gave me an overall disadvantage.

They might make a pretty good HFT pellet unless it gets really windy. To give you an idea of how windy it was today, I was giving about 3-4 mildots of wind at 50 yards on the ones I managed to hit, which is probably a good 4 or 5 inches - well off the plate!.
