Item Code: CR-P1250 [PY-P-314]
|Suggested for||Small game hunting/plinking|
Things I liked: Very clean pellets. A Pyramyd pro explained that Crosman does use other elements to make its pellets harder. They do penetrate better than traditional pointed designs. At 7.4 grains they are hard and light.
Things I would have changed: Any variations in the skirt or weight is minimal. I have noticed some "pee-wees" when shooting - meaning a wild shot do to some deviation. Not sure what can be improved; maybe line the carton with foam. Not sure that can be done. My lesson here is that no matter what pellet, ordering a mound of them in a container is likely to create some problems with consistency. Going forward, I will likely just order multiple tins of any pellet I really like.
What others should know: I currently have been putting this pellet in a competition against the Excite line by H&N. The Excite wadcutters get mixed reviews, but I can vouch that the Hammers and Spikes are excellent. The Excite was made for pump guns or smaller spring guns. What the Germans consider "econo" are quite good. My Black Ops pump loves Hammers as does my 880. My 880 has made some memorable shots with these Crosman points, though!
Things I liked: Excellent quality control with very little differences in weight. I have found them to be very accurate out of my RWS Model 35 and my Webley Alecto Ultra. They feed into the barrel of the Ultra much easier than the RWS Super Dome that my weapoon seems to prefer.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. this is a good value for an excellent product.
Things I liked: The price
Things I would have changed: The consistency of the shot. They are best used as 10 yd shooting. I will not buy them again.
What others should know: There are not 1250 in the container. More like 1175. I bought 2 cartons. Made my number obsessed son count both cartons... twice, ~1150 and ~1195.
