Things I liked:This is my go to pellet,and others must feel the same way because they are always out of stock. I shoot them out of a .25 caliber marauder and they are by far the most consistent pellet I've shot through this particular weapon. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:Make sure you stock up, because they are usually on back order.
Things I liked:I like the weight of these pellets and the shape. Very good in windy conditions and hard hitting.I shoot them through a .25 marauder and a .25 evanix max. The marauder has never had any issues with these pellets, the max is a recent purchase and I have only shot about 100 rounds of these through it.So far there have been no issues as far as the magazine functioning properly or the pellet chambering correctly. Things I would have changed:Quality control What others should know:When I first started using baracudas, I went through the first couple of tins looking for deformed pellets and throwing the calipers across them randomly to make sure they were all in the same ballpark, everything looked really good.Now thousands of pellets later I start finding deformed pellets. I noticed the last couple of tins had a lot of fliers. At first I thought that it was me just pulling my shots because it would happen about every 15 to 20 shots.To make a long story short I eliminated myself from the equation and cleaned the barrel and yet, still I would have a 4 inch flier. It was then that I decided to look through the remaining pellets in the tin and found 12 pellets that were not completely formed. The rear end of the skirt was missing the inside bevel. It was like the press did not go to the correct depth or something. I always thought that the bevel was for centering when chambering, I don't really see how that would affect the aero of the pellet unless the shallow depth made the pellet top heavy and made it tumble out of control.Just to make sure it was the pellet, I loaded one of the shallow pellets and sent it 100 yards down range toward a dog food can and I know I heard it hit the backstop somewhere. I then chambered a good pellet and it hit the can centermass. I have always had good luck with these pellets and will continue using them as long as this was just a manufacturing setup problem and not a long term quality problem.
