Things I liked: These pellets really engage the rifling. Front and back of pellet. They are for an R9, and I find them the most accurate and hard hitting.
Things I would have changed: Of course these are H&N, so they are pricey. So maybe 300 for the same price? I honestly have had good results with JSB in other calibers, and their .20 is a better deal, so maybe I try them. Otherwise, the Baracudas are highly reliable.
What others should know: Comparing these to Gamo pellets is a great contrast. I think Gamo has some decent deals with their rifles, but if they do not clear up there quality control on pellets, they should stop making them. Whereas the Baracudas make full use of the rifling, the Gamo Pro Magnums do not. Short skirts send the Pro Mags all over the place. Was excited about the Pro Mags and gave good review, since they are like lead Raptors, but later had to amend it because of the too frequent wild shots. The econo Excite line is better than Gamo pellets! Excite Hammers rock! These Baracudas do well in my R9 with a peep sight: tight groups and crushing power that shoots through thick soup cans. One shot one kill on the pests I hunt.
Things I liked: Uniform, good looking pellet. Ten shots at 20 yards; 3 shots touching in the "10" ring, 4 shots in the "9" ring with 1 pair high touching, 1 pair low center-left cutting "8" ring line touching. Last 3 shots spread low center-left in "7/6" ring. While a overall 2+ inch group, some acceptable grouping seen. Not the pattern I expect in a go to pellet.
Things I would have changed: All pellets should have 500 count tin an option.
What others should know: Shots taken slowly from bench rest.
Things I liked: Good consistent pellet. Screw top tins.
Things I would have changed: Not the tightest groups (30 yes) from my RWS Diana 48.
