Edgar bros .177 pellets
A pellet is a non-spherical projectile designed to be fired from an air gun.
Air gun pellets differ from bullets used in firearms because of the pressures encountered, airguns operate at pressures as low as 50 atmospheres while firearms operate at thousands of atmospheres
Match pellets are used for the 10 metre air rifle and 10 metre air pistol disciplines.
These 4.5 mm (0.177 in) calibre pellets have wadcutter heads, meaning the front is (nearly) flat, that leave clean round holes in paper targets for easy scoring. Match pellets are offered in tins and more elaborate packagings that avoid deformation and other damage that could impair their uniformity.
