Things I liked: I had been using the .22 H&N FTT (Beeman FTS) pells in my .22 Weihrach HW80k as the FTT are highly recommended. The FTT shot well, but I have found my HW80k likes the AA Falcon 13.43 gr domes (re-badged JSB's) better, getting groups of about 50 percent smaller at ranges from mid to long (about 40 to 80 yds which is as far as I generally trajectory plot).

Things I would have changed: A Beeman pellseat or at least a ball point pen is a good field accessory as these JSB pells are soft lead (good for hunting as mushroom upon impact better) but have thin skirts. The thin skirts are easily deformed without careful handling, but once seated in the breech the deformed skirts are easily reformed with gentle pressure of the pen. r.hamilton

Things I liked: Ok, the 625 pellet box of .22 CP's IS expensive...but they are the better quality pells. The cheaper 500 tin CP's are great value plinkers and for closer shots. But for farm pest hunting shots at maximum airgun ranges (for me, about 80 yards with my .22 RWS54), these are worth the price...barely. My .22 RWS54 loves these 14.3 gr CPs. Groups are about 1/2 the size of H&N FTT pells. That said, my .22 HW80k positively HATES CPs. My HW80k totally sprays CPs (as in 2 inch groups at about 15 yards..from a rest). Verses my .22 RWS54 that puts 5 CPs into about 1 inch at 65 yds...an if I could hold steadier, groups likely would be tighter. R.Hamilton

Things I would have changed: Price too high. So I use these pells only in hunting. For plinking, I use less accurate but cheaper pells.

What others should know: Compare H&N FTT and Crosman CPs if you have a .22 RWS 46/52/54. Your airgun might love them.
