Lesser known Indian pellet brands

Postby ebenezer » Tue Feb 23, 2010 1:08 pm

Dear all,

I'd request you all to post pics or mention the brand names of whatever pellets you've come across in the Indian market (apart from Master Shot and G Smith).

My list includes:

Marvel Shot
Marshal Shot
UTA
HeMan
ISW
Indian Shot
International Shot

Marvel Shot & Marshal Shot are of the lowest quality.

ISW is not available in the market (Chennai) now, but i have used them several years ago. It was of very good quality.

Indian Shot too is not available now, but I have stock of the pointed ones (About 50 rounds). They worked very well with my UTA air rifle, better than Master Shot. Yesterday I managed to pick a 500 double head pack (the last one left) from Tamil Nadu Armoury.

International Shot is new to me and I picked 2 nos of a 100 pack. It's a flat head and the finish is excellent.

Are the last three brands available in other parts of the country? Any info on this would be appreciated.

There's a chap out of Moradabad who makes pellets under the brand name Tremendous. Saw his wadcutters being used/ sold at the Shri Fort Range (New Delhi), the quality seemed visually OK, but performance on paper was terrible - at least in the air-pistols we were using (HW40 & IZH-46M).

In fact we bumped into the gent there as well. He took a few samples of RWS Hobby, JSB Exacts & FTT from me to try and replicate them. If anyone wants contact details, I probably have his visiting card lying around somewhere... seemed to be a bit of an oddball, claimed that dipping pellets in cow shite made them deadly lethal :roll: I quietly made my exit once he went off on this (apparently his favourite) topic! :P

Dev may have a few tins of the stuff with him also.

Cheers!
Abhijeet

Hello ebenezer,
In our city ( Kolhapur, Maharashtra) we have supplies of Marshal, Master Shot and G Smith pellets. Indian Shots were available 2 to 3 years back but not now. G Smith pellets are of top quality and fit & finish but are a bit soft. Master Shot pellets seems practical and economical... Marshal pellets are of low quality. Master Shot Wadcutters and export quality round head are the ones I liked.
Thanks
Amol

There's one brand called Target Shot. The best pellet for hitting everything around a bull.
“Horrid” would be an understatement (at least in my opinion).

Hi King, Amol and Big Daddy,

Thanks for your replies. I think now Master Shot rules the roost.

Thanks,
Ebenezer

In my experience...
UTA ia of low quality,
Master shot is a good one,
Diana are the top quality pellets i ever used but now rare,
G-smith pellets are well finished & good quality but costly,
Finally my latest favourite one is Marvellous Shot

Missing the first shot doesn't mean you are a looser.. You can do it...!!

Dear Gunner,

ISW has stopped production of pellets in either calibre, to my knowledge.

Regards,
Ebenezer
