Item Code: CR-LF22SP [PY-P-886]
|Ammo Type||Lead-free pellets|
Things I liked: Nothing
Things I would have changed: QC. They got one star basically because the system won't accept no stars.
What others should know: Will never hit same place twice. Worst pellets I have ever used. I would pay someone to take 'em away.
Things I liked: Lead-free
Things I would have changed: Much too lightweight for my Benjy pumpers, HB22 & 392. These air guns are usually very accurate. With these lightweight pellets I could barely hit the target! Even when I was lucky enough to do so, the pellets would usually bounce off.
What others should know: I wanted to see whether lead-free pellets were worthwhile, despite their price. From now on I'm sticking with .22 pellets 13 grains or more.
Things I liked: after scope tweaking, i get very good accuracy with these very light, fast moving pellets - about as good a HN FTTGs. quarterish sized groups at 10 yards just sitting down with no rest...sometimes better. oddly, these feel lighter than HN FTTGs and dont penetrate anywhere as well into pine planking or 10 inches of stacked pork shoulder (about 3 inches on average with a thick fur cap pulled over the meat). but at the base of the point of the pellet there is a stiff ring and these create a larger entry wound on the meat than even expanding lead hollow points i have fired (HN hollow points at 12.6gr and crosman destroyers at 14.3gr). i assume this is because of the high speed and the little ridged ring.
Things I would have changed: not sure really. maybe 3 grains heavier? sort of a conundrum with these on small game as the initial wound is huge but the low mass prevents deep penetration.
What others should know: fired from a crosman nitro venom at 10 yards.
