Things I liked: Not a thing

Things I would have changed: Something is way amiss with these pellets, perhaps a poorly manufactured batch.

What others should know: I just got a RWS Diana 350 magnum and have been shooting it for a couple days now exclusively at 35 yard range in my backyard. The gun is not broken in yet and is not easy to shoot consistently but when I am on I can shoot quarter size groups with the Crosman Premier domed (the $22.95 box) with occasional flyers. I can easily shoot 1.5 to 2 inch groups no problem. When I switch to these hollowpoints I cannot shoot a 4 inch group even, they are all over the place. Some fit very loose in the gun and will fall out, others are too tight. Not a single shot hit where I aimed at. Incredible. I bought 3 tins and will send them all back.

Things I liked: Clean and consistent looking, I expected these to be as good as reviews say.

Things I would have changed: I got a new Marauder and tried these, JSB exact heavy 18.1, Discovery Hollowpoint 14.3 and Crosman premier 14.3 shooting from a bench at 35 yards in backyard. These were the worst performers of all the above, I could not believe when the first flyer hit four inches right! Another shot hit 3 or four inches to the left and the rest scattered within approx 3 inches. That had never happened before with the Marauder in approx 200 shots. The Crosman premiers shoot dime size 10 shot groups, the JSBs shoot quarter size groups, the discoverys shoot 1-1 1/2 inch groups.

What others should know: Like the review below me my Marauder does not like these. Maybe when I adjust the power up to 3000 they will work better? It's set from factory at 2500. I will get back to these and try again later. I am fairly recent to airguns but a good consistent shot. I had an RWS 350 Magnum that liked the Crosman premiers best by far also. I am puzzled as to how many pellets just shoot really poorly from these 2 guns. And I wonder why the Crosmans shoot best, they don't look like much to the naked eye, they are quite loose in the magazine and I saw a good many deformed skirts while these Barracudas all looked perfect and fit consistently just snug in magazine!
