|Head Size||6.35 mm|
|Skirt Diameter||6.58 mm|
Things I liked: Uniformity, good shape & accurate! One slightly enlarged hole @ 25yds!
Things I would have changed: Only the weight. This pellet is light in .25. Energy/retained energy is lower than I would prefer.
What others should know: My gun loves them, but try others to find which is the best for your gun.
Things I liked: Using a .25 Benjamin Trail NP XL for testing, this is what my CED M2 Chronograph discovered after 50 pellets were shot: Hi=756.4 Low=726.1 ES=30.3 AVG=744.7 SD=5.9 95%=+-1.7 The crony's first sensor was about a foot away from the muzzle. Temp was in the 70's with low winds of less than 4 MPH. I haven't had a chance yet to run ballistic coefficient tests yet, but this seems to be a aerodynamic pellet that maintains a consistent flight trajectory. No, I haven't had a chance to do my usual molding clay penetration tests, but from reading the other reviews I have a feeling I will be pleased with this too. This was my first purchase of these pellets and got them on sale. Because this was my low dollar pellet purchase, and I made a fairly large purchase, I got a number of these as my FREE 4th tin! How pleasing! The groupings were great too.
Things I would have changed: I love this Benjamin Trail NP XL Rifle I use. I consider it about the best of the piston pumps for the price. However, I would love to see this pellet being pushed at about 60 Foot Pounds per Square inch! Looks like the next step in the progression is PCP. That will flatten out the .25 curves and make it a bit more useful for predators. Currently, I'm getting about 25 or so FPSI. A bit faster is desired, but still under the speed of sound is what I'd like to see.
What others should know: I am glad I got these pellets as my "Extra Tins". (And on sale yet!)
Things I liked: Like my review of the match pellets, these are awesome in the Walther Falcon series rifles and are also great in the Crosman NP-XL series rifles; hard hitting, great penetration at extended ranges, quick kills, and superb accuracy. Consistent chamber fit in both rifles, and, if you do your part, there is no need for a second shot on game; nearly beheads squrriels at 60 yards!
Things I would have changed: more for the money
What others should know: I will not, unless necessary, use a rimfire rifle again for small game, as this combo of rifle and pellets do the job as good at the same ranges; great pellets and consistent fit and weights give great accuracy, shot after shot. Try them, you will not be dissappointed.
