Item Code: CR-LF177SP [PY-P-772]
|Ammo Type||Lead-free pellets|
Things I liked: They look great, shiny and none were deformed. Being supersonic, the sound was cool.
Things I would have changed: Not much, other than a tin that doesn't fight you to remove the lid. Mine stripped out/cross threaded on me.
What others should know: Chronograph shows 1,292 fps average, in my Benjamin np2 rifle. Now my Benjamin np2 pistol, they came out at 582 fps average. But with these lightweight pellets, they are no way accurate. Seems as though everyone is a flyer.
Things I liked: I purchased this 4.00 grain Crosman Premier pellet as a fps test on four of my .177 air rifles. This pellet was also shot thru my older Crosman 66 multi pump, which it performed well.
Things I would have changed: I prefer Domed pellets over pointed or hollow point.
What others should know: This pellet was shot in strings of five shots from each air rifle, plus the Crosman 66. The Ruger Air Magnum shot this 4.00 grain lead free pellet at a five shot average of 1505 fps with a high of 1532 fps and a low of 1476 fps. The Gamo Big Cat 1250 averaged 1264 fps with a high of 1284 fps and a low of 1217 fps. The Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 1142 fps with a high of 1156 fps and a low of 1132 fps. The Beeman RS2 Silver Kodiak averaged 1152 fps with a high of 1182 fps and a low of 1108 fps. The Crosman 66 Powermaster multi-pump averaged 789 fps with a high of 794 fps and a low of 782 fps. This pellet would not have hunting success and it did not hit the 2" target that was stuck on a 12"x18" box at 70 feet away, some shots missed the box altogether. I would purchase this pellet for use on the Crosman 66 and only for testing on my break barrels that were used in this review. All of my four break barrels are not "neighbor friendly" when shooting this pellet. Shot in 52-55 deg. weather.
Things I liked: These are Fantastic in all of my pistols, All of my Co2 pistols shoot these w/ authority, especially my Gamo's, PT 85, P 25, PT 80, and are simply Great in my Gamo PR-776 revolver, Also great in my Crosman's The Vigilante, and it's predecessor 357, Not too good in the 1088, but then again nothing's too accurate w/ that shooter. But they absolutely shine in my Dan Wesson 8" pellet revolver, and in my *New* Dan Wesson 715, but with that shooter, Since pellet length is of no concern, It is simply a joy to shoot with Skenco Type 1's @ 5.4gr,. as well as the Skenco Type 4 "Black Max" match rounds, The 715 can stack those rounds at 10 meters, and the Skencos will go through 2 cans placed one after the other, while other "Alloy" pellets may enter only one side of a can or just bounce and leave a dent. In my Rifles, my modded XS-B4-2A will send them out screaming at close to 1000 fps, same goes for my "Modded XS-B9, In my Daisy 953, they stack them @ 25ft w/ a m/v of almost 600fps
Things I would have changed: Add a little more weight, say 6.5gr,. would be great for most shooters, and would shoot much better in Rifle applications
What others should know: They are a little pricey, but in certain pistols, they are great, My Beeman P17, is one hell of a Squirrel Terminator well up to 40 ft. with these!
