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!.
So fairly windy then Brian

We all know defiants suffered past 35 yards but these falcon pellets are tiny in comparison , I wonder if they will take as much wind even though they are lightweight pellets due to the 'dumpy size ' ?
