By Andrew from Canada on 2010-03-22 05:46:59Things I liked:I wanted to try something a little heavier a while back and decided to try H&N's next step up in the heavy-weight division from the tried, and true Baracuda Match I've faithfully used for the last couple yr's, In my modded XS-B4-2A(900+fps w/ 10.65gr,. H&N BM's) I got an average M/V of 869fps, with the round's having an 1.5" higher POI on the 20M target, even with the added weight I found that the pellet's design really componsates, I also noticed this w/ the H&N SilverPoint's.Go Figure,LoL. As for accuracy, grouping's not as tight as the BM's, but still in the black, Excellent B/C. The round's are a little snug in the XS-B4-2A, so I lubed the tin with a few drop's of Napier pellet lube, and used a pell-seat I fashioned from an allen key(The 'B4's are an U/L springer), and after that No trouble loading.
Things I would have changed:Since these round's are Cylindrical(bullet shaped), offering different head sizes would be a little difficult, I would suggest a slightly smaller diameter for the ease, and benefit of a more universal fit..
What others should know:The .22 version of this round is quite a bit better than it's .177 'lil brother, I put them up against the Big Boy's from Skenco(25+gr,.), and I managed to get better grouping's, better M/V, and the much better mushrooming effect of a solid bullet shape as opposed to the hollow pellet splat. These are Heavy round's, so use your judgement in which gun's you use them in, I wouldn't use these in anything that doesn't get a "magnum" rating. If you're serious about your A/G hunting, then these are well worth a try,,In either caliber, and with H&N on the label, you know you're getting outstanding Quality, and Quality Control. Cheer's, and Happy Hunting. Andy

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.
