Pellets made out of Tin

Post by Gunner_dh » Sun Jul 08, 2018 10:12 am

Hi Friends,

While casually browsing through internet a line caught eye " Diabolo pellets are traditionally made from lead, but can also be manufactured from tin," which made me go back an think if I ever encountered any pellet made out of tin. To my limited knowledge I never have hence thought of asking the same in the forum.

Do enlighten if any of us know any particular brand or make of pellet which is made out of tin or it was thing of yesteryears.

I have used tin pellets, but they have high risk of ricochet, so go for lead pellets only.

Hello gunner
I'm not that good in science,but I think lead pellets will be far more better than tin coz leads have a higher density than tin so they'll b heavier than tin. You can weigh a same dimension of tin and lead and see which will be heavier...happy shooting bro
