Things I liked:This is a very clean and well made pellet.
Things I would have changed:As many others have stated, I really like the screw on lids.
What others should know:I recently bought a new RWS 460 Magnum from Pyramyd Air and am in the process of searching for the perfect pellet. This H&N Baracuda Hunter pellet is at the top of the performance list in my rifle even out to 50 yards. I really like this pellet.
Things I liked:Accuracy, impact, energy, uniformity and the shape and look of the giant hollow point.
Things I would have changed:Not much at all. Mabe the price, but I would rather pay more for quality. If making them cheaper meant making them less precise, than no, I wouldn't change a single thing.
What others should know:In every airgun I've owned, both .177 and .22, the trajectory of these pellets differ greatly from other barracuda pellets (barracuda and barracuda hunter extreme anyway). Don't be alarmed if you try these for the first time and the point of impact is way off from where your optics have been set to. These are great pellets, with great accuracy and hit very hard (if your gun has enough energy for these). Even if you've tried other hollow point style pellets but not these puppies yet, try them. I fell in love with them the first time I shot them four years ago. Thank you pyramid air, top of the line service!!
Things I liked:Super accurate in my Marauder. Under .5" groups at 50 yards. Often one round hole with 3 shots at 30 yards with little/no wind. Its trajectory is very flat. Flatter than the Hunter Extreme. As indicated on the bar graph on the tin, very high in precision and distance categories. Very good performance on small game; they definitely expand, leaving a noticeable entrance and exit hole. It bounces squirrels; you know when you've connected! If the prey moves away after, there will likely be a blood trail and it won't be moving fast. Still, instant kills (squirrels) are only guaranteed with brain or good amount of internal wounding that includes spinal disruption and/or a longitudinal / diagonal path. Chipmunk size game are devastated instantly. Tough birds like jays expire immediately with chest/body shots.
Things I would have changed:Nothing other than a lower price ;-)
What others should know:At 770fps muzzle velocity, prey hit at 50' or more, flesh is not flying like with a 22LR, so you do need to hit vitals for an instant kill but this is only a 18 gr projectile and subsonic so what do you expect? (A 22LR HP just about blows a squirrel in half close up; 37 gr, 1300fps.) Because of the flat trajectory (zero at 17 & 30 yards and only 1" low at 40 yards, about 3" low at 50 yards) and with very good grouping - 3 of 5 touching at 50 yards with 2 others .5 - 1" away in 2 to 3 mph wind, this has become THE go to hunting pellet for me. This flat trajectory means distance estimation is not as critical as with other rounds. 2nd in line is the Hunter Extreme - it seems to wound slightly better but groups a little larger and has a more arcing trajectory so distance estimation is more criti. Both are great hunting rounds. Trying Crow Mags next but preliminary tests say they don't group as well. They look more suited for larger tough things like crows.
