Things I liked:The copper coating keeps your hands clean and seems to greatly reduce the exposure to lead residue. I did not find these to have deformities or damage; great quality. They came in a tin with a secure screw on lid.
Things I would have changed:Offer them in a tin of 500 at a cost savings per round.
What others should know:I have a Benjamin Marauder .22 cal. I built on a .25 cal. platform (larger valve porting, transfer porting, etc.) I also installed a 10lb. hammer spring with buffers to dampen vibration and bounce. I have it tuned at about 75% of its velocity potential and am getting an average velocity of 985 fps. from this pellet (1st 20 shots). At 25 yards, 5 shot groups average .462". (This is a real world average, not just isolated best of the best reporting.) I killed 16 squirrels with 16 shots at ranges from 25 to almost 40 yards with this pellet. That is how consistent the point of impact is with these in my gun; no flyers.
Things I liked:H&N makes quality pellets. They're clean, undamaged and reasonably consistent in size and weight. The new pellet tins now have a screw-on top which protrudes slightly and an indented bottom which makes them ideal for stacking. If you're looking to avoid exposure to lead you may want to consider these pellets.
What others should know:In my search for "the-one" pellet that gives me the best accuracy, I measure, chronograph and calculate. This methodology works well and I highly recommend it. The following information is based on 12 shots with the Weihrauch HW90. Numbers have been rounded and the average is based on the sum of the velocity of the total number of shots. The numbers don't lie and although these pellets are pretty they did not perform well in my HW90. I attained greater velocity and energy with the lead Baracuda pellet. Test No.: 021513, Location: Indoor, Temperature: 73º,Humidity: 39%, Elevation: 183ft, Ballistic Coefficient: 0.0330, Head Diameter: 5.49–5.56, Skirt Diamter: 5.55-5.74, Pellet Length: 8.42–8.75, High Velocity (fps): 622, Low Velocity (fps): 559, *Average Velocity (fps): 595, Extreme Spread (fps): 27, Average Deviation (fps): 16, Standard Deviation (fps): 21, High Energy (ft-lbs): 18, Low Energy (ft-lbs): 15.
Things I liked:It's funny as you can hear in the indoor range how much faster they are than other pellets. You shoot and crack its already hitting the target! I found them to be "VERY" accurate in my Gamo Bone Collector. My friend shot them out of his Crossman Titan with the lower velocity 695 FPS and they were real accurate from that gun also. What? This rifle has been discontinued?? (Titan 695) It is such a perfect gun and so accurate.
Things I would have changed:Why change a good thing?
What others should know:I also have the Gamo ones but they have longer skirts. I will be trying those out next week. We are going to try them in the Titan also.
