Item Code: HN-92104510005 [PY-P-975]
|Head Size||4.51 mm|
Things I liked: Clean, and well formed. Great tins.
Things I would have changed: Get the head size right! No sense in offering different sizes if they aren't going to be any different than another tin marked a different size. These pellets are overpriced for this kind of quality control.
What others should know: I've shot these for years out of my Weihrauch springers with great results. I recently ordered two tins, and when they arrived they both shot terrible. I checked the tin and it said 4,51mm like I ordered, but every pellet in both tins measured 4.54mm or larger. For any airgun with a choked barrel (which is almost all) these will shoot terrible. If you get a bad tin like I did, you will know because the pellets fit the barrel VERY tight. When these pellets are sized correctly, like what it is on the tin, they can't be beat. But here lately, they are worthless.
Things I liked: Clean with little dust. No visible deformities. Shoot well enough to not sort. (For my purposes) Quality screw on lid.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: These were packaged well from PA, as usual. All of my air rifles tolerate these pellets well. My crosman m4 177 will literally stack and smash pellets together at 10meters Very impressive for my purposes. It is worth trying the different head sizes. Quality ammunition is worth the price.
Things I liked: Good quality pellet that shoots very well in my FWB124. Screw-on lid is much easier and more secure to deal with than the usual friction-fit lid on most pellet tins.
Things I would have changed: These are more expensive than many completing pellets. I'd love to get 'em cheaper if I could (buy multiple tins and take advantage of PAs get-4-pay-for-3 offer). Still, I'll pay the price for them since they perform well in my guns.
What others should know: These are the second most accurate pellet in my FWB124, out of 26 different pellets tried in that gun to date. They did not shoot well in my HW30, ranking will into the lower half of all pellets I've tried (27 in that gun to date). FWIW, they're also tied for most accurate domed pellet in my old RWS Diana model 75 (yes, that's a match rifle intended to shoot wadcutters...).
Does anyone know what the BC is on these? I find it hard to believe the BC is as low as .012 as advertised on the H&N site :http://ballistics.hn-sport.de/#find/pellet/target/7/distance/2/caliber/2/power/81/unit/2 They advertise their Field Target Trophy Greens which are half the weight but same domed shape as having a BC of .018. Something seems off to me, .012 seems low for these. Anyway, I'm using a Crosman 766 Phase 1 w/new seals. Gets 680 fps with JSB Exact Express which I know has a BC of .021. Wanted to see if these FTTs would work well but the BC threw me off.
