Things I liked: Quality control - every pellet is in shaped perfectly with no deformities. This is the ONLY pellet I shoot out of my Hammerli Airmagnum 850.
Things I would have changed: The price! These things are going up in price every year I buy them.
What others should know: If you're looking for a consistent performing pellet in the .177 caliber and at 8.3 grains, get the RWS Superdomes. I use them for plinking and small game hunting.
Things I liked: The power from this rifle is incredible and the heft of this thing helps with the equally incredible recoil. The adjustable cheek rest is a nice touch too. If you can master the artillery hold you can get decent groups from this thing. I have this in a .22 cal with a spring power plant.
Things I would have changed: I wish Hatsan would use a stronger metal for the screws on the adjustable cheek rest. As I've had to tighten the screws down many times due to the recoil, I've noticed that the screws' heads will warp with every adjustment. Also, be prepared to adjust the scope after so many shots as well, it's loosened up on me many times affecting the accuracy. I'll tighten the scope and the shots get tighter - my shots become erratic and I'll notice my scope has loosened.
What others should know: As you've heard before the bipod is mainly for displaying the rifle and not for functional shooting. And as much fun I've had shooting this rifle, had I known that Hatsan will eventually be releasing this model with their Vortex gas piston on Pyramyd Air I would have waited to purchase the rifle at that time. It's like buying a new Apple iPhone when you hear news that they're releasing their newest 'better' model not too long after.
