Things I liked:I first started doing this a few years back before Gamo introduced their "Rocket" rounds to Canada. I would take some .22 H&N "Crow Magnums" & put a drop of "Krazy Glue" in the center cavity, and drop in a Daisy Zinc BB, The BB centers itself, and when dry they are virtually inseparable which left me with one hell of a killing round, Flying straight & true(like a Joe Namath spiral), absolutely stunning accuracy, and performance wise. I recently picked up a Hatsan AT-44 .25 (single-shot, synth stock), and after seeing the dismal selection of rounds available in .25 decided to try it again, Now since the .25 Crow-Mag is bigger the BB sits better, and lower in the cavity, much like the original Gamo Rocket. These rounds are so accurate w/ this shooter, it's almost boring, I now get sub 3" groupings @ 100 meters w/ many "one-holers", The pellet/bb combo comes in at 32.3gr,. of absolute stopping power, and has already put a Jack-Rabbit on the table, taken at 85 yds last month " One Shot-One Kill",, I now call these my "Rhino Rounds", They "mushroom beautifully with the bb getting pushed back into the pellet, and have yet to see a bb separate from the pellet. I "Kid" you not, It takes roughly 5 minutes to make 2 dozen or so, more than you'd use for a day in the field. The hardness of the Zinc BB, combined with the famous H&N accuracy will put a smile on any shooters face, a Rabbit/Game Bird on the table, and not leave a dent in your wallet. Cheer's, and Happy Huntin', Andy.
Things I would have changed:Too Bad, You have to make these yourselves
What others should know:It only takes a couple minutes to whip up more than you'd use for a day in the field.
Things I liked:The Crow Magnum in .25 is the go-to pellet for my Hatsan M-135. Like all the H&N pellets I have tried and used, it is clean, precisely manufactured and uniform. I am sold on H&N pellets for all three of my calibers, and the Crow Magnum, in particular. This is especially true in my .25 Hatsan M-135. I learned that the Hatsan .25 bore is slightly oversized. Hence, the .25 Baracudas and Silver Points fit a tad too loosely for optimum accuracy. However, their cousin, the Crow Magnum is slightly oversize and fits the bore more snuggly - thus increasing accuracy. Having learned this, I zeroed my Leapers UTG scope with the Crows and have a one-ragged-hole shooter. While a fan of the Silver Points and Baracudas in my other calibers, they just could not group with the Hatsan slightly over-size bore. The Crows, to say it again, did!
Things I would have changed:The Crow Magnum is an optimal projectile for my use of it as a pest removal pellet. There is little I could suggest for a product improvement. Of course, the old adage about more pellets for the dollar applies!
What others should know:These are amazingly able to expand in my modeling clay brick that I use to ascertain pellet impact performance. While much has been made of hollow point pellets that is wishful writing, these DO expand and put energy in their target. They are the one pellet that is able to harness the awesome power of the M-135 and put it down range. These, I might add work similarly in my RWS 350 Feuerkraft Pro Compact, which is another high power break barrel, but this one in .177. For pest control at short to medium ranges, say 10 meters to 20, they are devastating, accurate, clean and uniform. They do what one wants them to do. I suspect that they become less accurate a long range as they are a kind of "semi-wadcutter," that is, with a flat front profile - not the best aero shape. Keeping that in mind, use them for their intended mission and one will be pleased with the results.
Things I liked:The container has a screw on/off lid and they are consistent in shape and size. However they sit so loosely in my hatsan 125 in .25, they actually fall out as I reset the barrel to shoot.
Things I would have changed:Make them cosistent with other .25 pellets in size.
What others should know:Its simple. If your shooting them in a hatsan 125, probably get something else. They look very well made and im hoping my next .25 takes them.
