While most hollowpoint pellets literally have a hollow head, the H&N Terminator pellets have a small lead projection rising up from the center of the hollowpoint. Additionally, the edge of the hollowpoint has notches that are designed to help the pellet mushroom on impact, making it more effective than pellets without the notches.
The world's only partitioned hollowpoint pellet!

Things I liked: This pellet was part of a large purchase (7 different brands/weights) to determine the best fit for my guns (Browning Leverage & Hatsan 95 Vortex in .22). It performed well, although not as accurate as the JSB Match Diablo 16 or 18 grain in my guns. Liked the threaded tin top - wish JSB and Air Arms would go this route
Things I would have changed: Pretty pricey for a 200 count container.
Things I liked: The only hollowpoint pellets I have tried that groups well out of my HW95. 1 out of 4 5 shot groups can stack pellet on pellet at 18 yards. I still haven't run these over the chrony to find the BC but for real world performance they work great, I've put down rats at 8-25 yards with the Terminators. They impart a decent amount of energy on the target, for example, shooting a 6" rat head on with 700fps muzzle velocity, the pellet only traveled 5" down its body. So far I've only experienced high quality H&N consistency from my first tin, if something changes with future tins I will update my review. The weight is perfect for springers at 16gr it won't stress your spring.
Things I liked: Surprisingly accurate! These do very well in my AT-44 long qe. They are not the best for shooting past 50 yards, since they are on the lighter side. This is my go to pellet for hunting. I don't shoot the round nose pellets very much when hunting, since they usually blow right through birds/tree rats. These pretty much smack the @@#$ out of critters. I have had these echo when they hit a squirrel, ha!
Things I would have changed: As always, a 400-500 count tin would be great. Other than that, I have zero complaints.
What others should know: Grab a tin, and give them a go. If you shoot a tree rat with one, you'll likely be ordering more after you see what they do!
