Things I liked: They look good, price is low for larger quantity.
Things I would have changed: Make a bit larger.
What others should know: These just don't work well with my Umarex Octane. It is dead on with a pellet almost twice as heavy, but these fly every which way. They are very loose in the breech and sort of "fall" into it. I see mostly positive reviews on these, but for my rifle, they are a no go. The other brand pellet is quite tight in the breech, and shoots great, but not these, at least for me. So, anyone want about 900 pellets? Half HP and half Domed.
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.

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".
