Things I liked: Good soft lead bullet that doesn’t breakup on impact. At 50 yards I recovered bullets from a dry phone book and all were intact. The bullets deform on impact flattening a little and getting shorter. The skirt area gets smaller than the head of the bullet and the side of the bullet that hits first gets the most deformation. I shot into a barrel liner filled with water to recover some bullets at 50 yards. Even in water, the skirt area is slightly smaller, the head slightly bigger, and you can tell which side of the bullet hit first. Bullets seem to be accurate and repeatable to within roughly 1” from where I was aiming. They don’t foul the bore much either. I leave a couple of these on my desk and when people pick them up and ask what they are, I tell them there from my little pellet gun. It’s worth it to see the look on their faces!
Things I would have changed: I’d like to see these offered in a lighter (and cheaper) version just for target shooting and for small animal pest control. Possible offer a ribbed Keith style bullet that would offer less barrel resistance?
What others should know: I don’t know if the bullet deformation would cause it to tumble or not track straight once it hit an animal. I was shooting at four milk jugs in a row and the bullet seemed to track straight thru all four. If someone knows, could they please comment?
Things I liked: My Dragon Slayer really likes these bullets along with the 490 Roundballs. These bullets load easy and hit the mark. Was shooting 25 and 50 yards with no issues of any kind.
Things I would have changed: I wouldn't change a thing.
What others should know: Get some for your Dragon Slayer and I am sure it will make your day!!!
