Bisley Mag 21.14 grains. Identical to H&N Barracuda, same ballistic nose etc. However you will be pushing it to get an inch group at 30 ish yards.

The H&N Barracuda Match is apparently the 'size selected' few.
Specifications for group is 12mm @25m 35mm @50m
Data sheet:

The old AA field 16gr has a considerably better group (same hole @25m) however BC suffers with hemispherical nose etc. so does not carry its energy very well.

If Bisley Magnums work for you.......... stick with 'em coz they are cheaper.

Just put a mic over some of these. (about 15-20 at random from each) got 2 different batch numbers in each type. Not a finite test but IMO a good starting indicator to accuracy.

Bisley Magnum:

Head diameter variation 5.51 - 5.54mm
Some not round,
Some had distorted skirts.

H&N Barracuda Match:

Head diameter variation 5.52 - 5.53mm
Skirts all good.
However some did have a very small 'Pip' in the centre of the nose.

NB:

My benchmark is the AA field, I use them in my sub 12 S510. They have pellet on pellet accuracy at 30+ yards. I have only got 7/10 in the same hole at 50 yards, but that's just me! Size variation from memory is less than 0.01mm

My rapid is also around the 34-36 ftlb mark
