Things I liked: This heavy .177 pellet was chosen because of the dome head and it is within my pellet weight preference. It will be used primarily when shooting my Ruger Air Magnum, for which a pellet of that weight I find to have the performance I am looking for. It is a perfect match.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: I reviewed this pellet by shooting it thru four of my .177 air rifles, all of them are spring piston. A five shot string was conducted and chronographed over my Prochrono Digital for each shot. The target was a 2" Birchwood/Casey on a 12"x18" box, 70 feet away. The Ruger Air Magnum produced a five shot average of 982 fps with a high of 992 fps, a low of 972 fps. The Gam Big Cat 1250 produced an average of 707 fps with a high of 713 fps and a low of 700 fps. The Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 693 fps with a high of 703 fps and a low of 689 fps. The Beeman RS2 Silver Kodiak averaged 746 fps with a high of 749 fps and a low of 742 fps. I was able to hit that two inch target with good results. This pellet, no doubt, is more devastating shot thru the Ruger Air Magnum, compared to rifles of less fps capabilities.
Things I liked: Very consistent; pleased with performance.
Things I liked: Very consistent in weight and head size. I weighted and measured the head size on 600 Kodiak pellets. All weighted between 10.4 and 10.6 grains. 98% of the head sizes were 4.51 to 4.53. In comparison I did the same thing with JSB 10.3's and head sizes ranged from 4.45 to 4.51. Weights were from 9.8 to 10.8 grain. The Kodiaks were a lot more consistent.
Things I would have changed: As others have stated TWIST ON TOP. I hate having to clean up pellets if I forget to tape the lid.
What others should know: I have an airwolf that is pellet picky and these Kodiak's shoot best. The H+N Match 10.65 in the 4.52 heads shoot 2nd best. Most of the head sizes of the H+N Match 4.52's range from 4.48 to 4.51. 1% of the Kodiak's had bent skirts or were damaged. Beeman sells the most consistent pellets with the least amount of damaged pellets per tin. Excellent quality control.
