Continuous development and evolution have since maintained Eley's competitive advantage and helped consumers reach their potential. After a long time of manufacturing .22 ammunition Eley has now also started making Air pellets for 10m Air rifle shooting.
An extensive research program revealed the vital features necessary to advance air pellets to the next level; pellet profile, dimensional consistency and weight control were identified as the key parameters affecting accuracy. ELEY’s team spent years experimenting, refining and testing, and then launched Eley Air gun pellets.
The team continued their product and process development to ensure medal winning performance at the highest levels. The result is ELEY tenex air. The essential statistics are .177 calibre, 4.49/4.50 diameters, and 8.2 grains. The key to consistency is in the materials selected, manufacturing techniques deployed, and the analysis and selection processes used to maintain the industry’s strictest standards.
ELEY tenex air pellets deliver exceptional accuracy, 30% greater weight control than any competitor, and damage-resistant packaging. The proof of their performance is in their early success: We gave prototype pellets to three elite shooters at the European Championships in Hungary and the ISSF World Cup in Mexico. We came away with four medals and a new World Record.
Phil Taylor, ELEY’s Technical Director, said: “Our goal was to deliver the medal winning performance demanded by the elite of air shooting and worthy of the ELEY tenex label. We have successfully ensured that the pellet mass is tightly controlled and focused at the same point in every round. The surface area and profile have been carefully sculpted to move the centre of pressure forwards of the centre of gravity. This produces the flattest most consistent flight path from muzzle to point of aim, with world beating reliability.
