Other than additional quality controls in place for the AA branded pellets, I can see no other reason.
I know where your coming from but tbh Personaly the amont of effort and cost involved, 2 quid a tin is two cups of tea at a shoot or 20 miles getting to one , if I could source the pellets that go well in my rifles I would be happy at 50 quid a tin, the amount of posts you see testing batches at different ranges in different types of guns does my head in , I think finding a barrel that isnt fussy is a god send , dont get me wrong , I had a bloke with minute groups at an indoor range with a tx200 insist on me giving them a go in my ftp , he had about 10 mm at 50 yds sort of bench rested ,mine was bout 35 mm, and no, dont bother asking what die I would pay 50 quid a tin for as I would hate for this to turn into an auction
ps worst move I did was buying scales , recipe for insomnia, still if it gives you confidece go for it
