By Eric from USA on 2010-06-09 01:47:23Things I liked:These are not pellets. They are bullets. They are also very nicely crafted.
Things I would have changed:Though these pellets must bite the rifling hard since they are entirely dependent on the rifling twist for stabilization, I think they could be a bit less snug to lessen friction and gain a little more velocity without affecting accuracy. It would be nice to see P/A include rifling twist rates in the product specs. Two things I have not seen listed in any airgun product catalog for many years are pellet seats and pellet sizers. I would like to see them make a come-back.
What others should know:These are specialty pellets and not compatible with all air rifles. I would not consider them for air rifles with a delicate action. Direct access to the breech would be best. These pellets fit so snugly I use a high tech pellet seat (an1/8" pop rivet on a makeshift handle) to insert them to a uniform depth in the bore of my 25 y/o RWS M45. Accuracy was not as good as I had hoped for but I cannot put a bum rap on these beautiful pellets. I suspect that my old rifle just did not quite have a fast enough twist rate to stabilize them fully. These pellets are not a "diabolo" (wasp-waisted) design so there is no aerodynamic drag at the rear of the pellet to help them fly true. A good diabolo pellet is inherently accurate and will shoot accurately even from a smooth bore air gun due to this rear end drag, however it also puts the brakes on like a dragster with the parachute out. The Rabbit Magnums may start out with a lower velocity due to the weight and friction, but will conserve momentum more efficiently and carry much farther than a diabolo type pellet, which is an important safety consideration. So if your "adult airgun" (as Beeman used to call them) was made at or before the dawn of magnum pellets try the heaviest pellet you can find with a skirt and you should be fine. I have a tin of Eunjin pellets that I have not tried or commented on yet, however they look identical to the old Beeman Silver Ace that always shot fabulously from my tired old air rifle.

By IsraelHands from USA on 2013-06-07 00:08:48Things I liked:Shape and mass of pellet. Looks like a small bullet.
Things I would have changed:Fit. Pellets were tight in my old school '82 Crossman 760. 6/6 pellets jammed. Wouldn't fire with maximum pumps. Couldn't use these.
