    Default No 3 Air rifle pellets?

    I saw a packet of no 3 air rifle pellets today. The gun shop owner said that it was old stock which someone ordered but didn't pick up.

    Does anyone have more info on this calibre?

    And just to cause some Christmas sparks I must ask whether one needs a license for this calibre

    A quick google gave me an old GS thread

    Apparently quite popular in Botswana (which may also explain why you found it, given your relatively close proximity).

    My understanding is no.2 is 5.5mm and no.3 is 6.35mm
