Things I liked: Great BB's for rotary clips, they're just a little bigger than the normal sized BB and fit into the revolver type clips tighter and will not fall out the end of the barrel. But will jam on semi-auto pistols. I like the coating of graphite to help lube the barrels. They work well in my three revolver pistols, Vigalante, Colt and Brodax.
Things I liked: In theory the round ball can be accurate up to a point but these are not giving the results i expected...but they are cheap and in a big tin..with a screw lid. possibly ok in smooth bore guns. suggest you just buy and try a tin just to see if your rifle or pistol likes these..
Things I would have changed: Use a much softer lead, so that they can initially seal better in the rifling, and make them a tad larger 4.55mm to fit rifles with deep rifling. Be interesting to test these in a smooth twist barrel !!! If they were softer they would also flatten out a bit more and dissipate more energy into the target.
What others should know: CPMWASP I have really tried but have failed to get any decent results from them. In my blueprinted rebel, that can put pellets through the same hole over and over they don't even chamber properly. Those tested were all under 7.55mm in diameter they can roll forward of the positioning bolt and sit against the rifling, where they will jam and let the air pulse get past...only by tipping the rifle back to prevent the ball rolling forward will it send the ball into the rifling with enough force to engage and seal into the rifling giving a 700fps shot, but they do so with great variation and the spread is terrible. So why do they perform so badly? Tested in another gun, a rifled pistol with a softer rifling they fire ok but the spread is 2-3 cm at 7 meters distance with the pistol in a vice !!! Conclusion is they are too loose and hard materiel for my rifle. Accuracy the size of the tin at 15 m very disappointing as the weight would have been fine for pest control as they hit hard.
Things I liked: Hit a lot harder than steel BBs, great price, usable in pellet or BB guns.
What others should know: I have not had problems with size and shape irregularities others have mentioned. I put them in the stick magazine of my Crosman P15B and they feed fine and don't jam. Of course they shoot lower than steel BBs but for close range (dispatching a mouse) its good to have these in the magazine as they will hit harder and have much better penetration.

I'm sure this has been explained already but I'm a noob so forgive me. Everyone says BBs are bad for a rifled barrel. I get these aren't BBs by definition, but I'm confused why using a .177 BB is bad but a .177 lead ball is ok? Can someone please explain it so my thick skull can understand? I'd hate to accidentally ruin my guns by using these when I shouldn't. Thank you so much in advance.
These are pure lead not jacketed or made out of steel. Being pure lead they will not "wear" the rifling so out like a harder metal like steel will. You can shoot these ou of a rifled barrel and they will not danamge the riflings like the steel or jacketed BB's will. Hope it helps!
Will these .177cal lead round ball work well with a Crosman 1377 ?
If by "well" you mean accurate, then no they are not as accurate as a good pellet. They hit hard. They are great fun in Daisy Powerline Rifles.
Crosman 1377 is a 177cal isn't it? That should answer ur question
If these can't or shouldn't be used in BB guns, then what earthly good are they? For what are they intended to be used?
Airguns that shoot pellets in .177 caliber.
