Things I liked: Uniformity, weight, expansion! My Umarex Fuel just loves these pellets at 35-50 yards. I re-purpose soda cans and milk jugs, fill'em with water and shoot. These pellets expand better than most other hollowpoints that I've tried. Crosman Destroyers (7.4 gr) were my "go to" pellets, but these 8.80 Crow Magnums seem to offer a little better umph on target. Where the Destroyers sometimes pass completely thru, these usually do not (gallon milk jug).
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Added these pellets to my group of favorites. Nice plinkers! Good quality pellet. No complaints. Try them.
Things I liked: Reliable expansion, uniform manufacturing. A perfect short-medium range pesting pellet, if your gun likes them. As the name suggests, these are possibly the perfect pellets for pest birds out to medium ranges. (maybe 30 yards?) They're good at medium velocities of 700-800 fps.
Things I would have changed: Better pricing per pellet. Maybe offer different tin sizes: how about 100 (trial size) and 500? (once you know your gun likes them) They don't shoot anywhere near as accurately as domes out of higher power PCPs, but are often good enough at close-medium ranges. Accuracy tapers off if shot faster, and they won't expand if shot slower.
What others should know: These are no the same pellet as the H&N Crow Magnums. Different weight and everything. I've tried these on squirrels and sparrows out of my Marauder and Compatto. The Marauder shoots them well at 10-15 yards, but the Compatto doesen't. From the Marauder, they're quite good enough for easy head shots on squirrels and body shots on sparrows out to at least 15 yards. I used to shoot squirrels with CPH domes, but found that they were blowing right through the squirrels (@ 875 fps) and still had enough energy to blow up a good puff of dirt on the far side of them. I clearly was not making good use of the energy. Switched to Crow Magnums, and I had a lot less pass-throughs and textbook perfect mushroom expansion. (920 fps at the muzzle) These penetrate, then expand and slow down to dump their energy.
Things I liked: Great pellet.. shot well and are devastating on game. Pellets expand like a hollow point should..
Things I would have changed: Nothing about the pellet.
What others should know: These pellets held a nickel sized group at 25 yards.. my nitro venom dusk loves them.

Are these pellets discontinued? I cannot find them on the beeman website.
Obviously not at Pyramyd Air. I just received yeaterday, 11-19-15 3 tins from PA.
how well do it work on a Gamo bone collector bull whisper? PS. i heard it does great from one person on youtube but I'm sure if want to believe him.
Answers given are pretty much my results. I'm more in the 20-40 yd range for deadly accurate shots.
how about 50 to 70 yards?
They will well out to 30 yards.
