Things I liked: Excellent grouping
Things I would have changed: Nothing
Things I liked: Price and screw on lid. The pellets also look nice and are rarely misformed, but I sense that is because of the alloy that they are using.
Things I would have changed: These pellets lack consistency of size and weight. They vary as much as 3 grains in weight and range from 5.48 to 5.54. I sense that the alloy (or other metal with the lead) has changed. I think they are getting harder tha than they used to be.
What others should know: QC is getting worse. They are just dumping pellets together from so many different lots that accuracy is impossible without a lot of work from you. I'm not certain that the harder lead contributes to accuracy- does it bite into the rifling? Does the skirt expand to fill in any imperfections that couldn't be seen by the naked eye? These are nowhere near the top three pellets in any of my .22 rifles.
Things I liked: My Hatsan 95 really likes this .22 cal pellet. They are very accurate and priced right! Also, tried the H&N FTT & JSB Exact Heavy which are excellent pellets and shot very well also. However, for the price and the accuracy I'm getting with this crossman pellet I will continue to use this as my main choice.
Things I would have changed: Pellet size could be a little more consistent. Found the JSB & H&N very uniform in size.
What others should know: If your gun likes this pellet (which mine does) you can't go wrong using this pellet. The only negative I can voice is that the size could be more consistant, some of the pellets seem slightly loose when fitting into the breach, but my rifle doesn't seem to be sensative to the size variation.
Why aren't these available in the box anymore?
I think you'd have to call the manufacture.
Anyone tried those in FX smooth twist barrels? How do those compare with JSBs?
No answer, but this very impressive shoot-out illustrates that it takes a PCP (and a very high quality one at that) to get into real pellet comparisons. Largely irrelevant to a Springer/Nitro/Break bbl, etc. except in very gross terms.

What is the head size of these pellets?
Oops. I now see your question. Head size, skirt size may be different. So, what does the nominal size on pkg. define?
My pkg. says "5.5 mm".
