Things I liked: Nice quantity in a big open box.
Things I would have changed: The sizing is terrible! Some pellets fell 6 inches into the barrel when loading: in 100 rounds there must have been about a dozen that just didn't fit. A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT, esp. for the price. Maybe my new RX-2 is junk, but, I doubt it. Also, for all the promo, they really didn't perform that well. It would be nice to be able to buy in smaller quantities_just to see if they will work at all.
What others should know: Exact, meisters, and predators all work extremely well in my gun...dime size groups at 20 yds. easily.
Things I liked: First of all, I am by no means an x-pert shooter! I shoot my piece off a sand rest at 20-30 yds., for now. Consequently, I am still experimenting with dif. pellets. I also have a Beeman R-9 (.20) to compare 2. So much for those "junk" pellets that I read in reviews. NO, I have not tried them all. There is a marriage between gun and projectile, much the same as people! What appears as junk in reviews may certainly perform adequately in your gun. My RX-2 was nice and stylish out of the box, had nice mass (for me at least), and beconned to be shot. and this I do. Although I have only a couple thous. rounds through it, accuracy seems decent and predictable. Accuracy in my terms is hitting what you're trying to hit. Groups at 20 yds. are about the size of my little finger nail, stacked.; this is for a 10 shot something or other,using Benjamins, Exact, Predators, and "Crows". They all seem to shoot consistantly! My R-9 shoots best accuracy using Predators exclusively; some other brands are a close second, but for both long and short range shooting, they work the best. As I expand my shooting range with the RX, I will certainly update my review . And, as in marriage, I continue to be flexible with my experimentations_knowing when accuarcy has been achieved. Speed: 794 fps. w/ exact .22 ammo.
Things I would have changed: For now, not a whole lot, as we are just getting to know one another.
What others should know: I will still prefer the R-9 for hitting the woods...weight mainly. On the other hand, I shall remain optimistic that the RX will totally divorce that elusive wood chuck_just around the corner.
Things I liked: Very consistant sizing...I shoot these in my R-9 and they really perform. From a bench, shoot 10 shot groups_one in every 3 or 4 groups can cover with a dime.(25 yds.) They fit tight, so, I first feed the pellet head into the barrel grooves, then, I take the oval end of a Bic pen to seat it firmly into place. Makes a big difference in consistant accuracy. This loading technique also allows me to shoot the heavier pcp rounds with good outcomes, not only in the R-9, but, also in my rx-2. Give it a try. Price is pretty good compared to other brands.
Things I would have changed: This caliber only comes in one weight...'be nice to have a couple more choices to choose from - like the .22 cal., for instance. Then again, other manufacturers have the same dilemna, too.
What others should know: Benjamin and Predators perform well also. I don't shoot the long ranges, so, I don't know which is the best in my particular gun. All penetrate with authority. Shoot safely!
