By Airgun Papa from USA on 2012-01-30 10:24:19Things I liked:This product has a secure lid! It isn't a screw on but it has detents all around the circumference of the lid and it takes a deliberate effort to get it off. The pellets are well formed, free of defects and reasonably clean.
Things I would have changed:There is nothing I can think of to improve on this product. The price is very good compared to other offerings, the accuracy better than more expensive pellets tested alongside these, and the downrange performance was the best. Maybe a pellet weighing about 15.5 to16.0 grains for higher energy transfer would be nice.
What others should know:I test pellets extensively firing thousands of rounds each year, recording the results and collecting them in a database on my computer. One of the things I do is to Chronograph the muzzle velocity and the 20 yard velocity and then calculate a performance factor which can be used to determine how well the pellets maintains its velocity downrange. These pellets are the new champions of velocity retention! I have records of 44 pellets thus far and none equal the velocity retention of these. Their accuracy was also first or second among 7 pellet products tested in both my Sheridan Blue Streak rifle and E-20 series Sheridan CO2 pistol. The initial velocities were slightly lower than anticipated from both guns but they made up for that very quickly in the first ten yards of travel. Interestingly, the former 1ST place velocity retention champ had the same characteristic and was also made in the Czech Republic.

By Chuck from USA on 2015-07-14 07:31:05Things I liked:I am occasionally getting 3/8" 5 shot groups at 15 yards from my Sheridan C9 rifle with these, the best by far of any I've tried so far. I will usually get 3 out of 5 into 3/8" or less. They usually slip right into the breach without requiring any force. With others, I suspect the skirt is being damaged on the way in and negatively affecting accuracy.
Things I would have changed:I do get a few definite flyers. Can't really say it's the pellets, but... A bit pricey. Not that long ago you didn't pay too much more for a brick of good .22 rimfire ammo. Also, wish they made some around 11.5 grains.
What others should know:I am new to air rifles. Got this one at an estate sale. Just rebuilt the air valve in the rifle and still improving the trigger. Put a peep sight on it but was dealing with some glare off the front sight, plus my 58 year old eyes aren't what they were. I'm used to scopes. Hope to improve these groups with some fine tuning and better technique.
