Item Code: JSB.177-MONSTER [PY-P-897]
Things I liked: Easy loading in all guns tried. Remarkable energy retention at distance. Pellet consistency (finish, weight) and accuracy.
Things I would have changed: Can't imagine improving this accurate powerhouse.
What others should know: Despite 13+g weight these shorties stabilize in typical .177" twist. So far the most accurate in new Benji NP2 and Gamo BC Bull Whisper, both within first 200rds OOB. We chrono'd at 15 and 30 yds and calculated NRG. >19 ft/lb retained at 30yd and 1" groups in either gun!! btw, extreme spreads and std deviations bely ability to group well. (Will test at greater distances in a future session) I have to re-order so we can test (& chrono) these in our now-shelved, humble Gamo Shadow 1000 springers. Expect to hand over a tin to anyone you encourage to try them and have to order more for yourself. (Next 'coon spotted had better wear a helmet. No doubt about potential penetration on such vermin.)
Things I liked: Shipped wrapped in foam and no dents in tins or pellets.Great for brake barrel guns.will slow down them high 1100 psi and higher rifles.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
Things I liked: If you gun likes these, they give your .177 the knock out power of a .22 cal. See comments below.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. Very accurate!
What others should know: I have a Diana RWS 34 Meisterschutze Pro Compact, that didn't shoot well. I took the muzzle weight off and re-engineered it with an internal weight, and mounted it with o-rings instead of the rubber washer. Also put larger set screws in it and fitted them to the holes in the barrel with loc-tite so it will not come loose. The result was a very accurate gun. But still the gun didn't shoot as good as I wanted until I used the 13.43 gr. monster pellets. the extra weight on the barrel and these pellets make a great combo. This gun makes what looks like one ragged spot on my steel target at 32 yrds.
Will they fit a hatsan magazine and cycle ?
I just ordered these monster exact to shoot in my RWS 350 Magnum 177 because it has so much power, I have been shooting H-N 10.65 with good results but I'm thinking a little more weight for the power of this gun should be fine, and quite it down a little. I'm getting quarter size groups at 25 to 30 yards and getting rid of some nasty house sparrows, your thoughts on how they will shoot. Thanks.
Will these pellets work good in my Benjamin prowler?
the Heading and the can say .177 cal. 13.4 gr
These are actually .177 pellets, and quite heavy ones too. These should perform pretty well in a rifle with that much power. They won't go as fast as pellets half their weight, but they'll hit very hard.
These fit in guns marked 177 cal, check on the breech or breech end of the barrel for the marking telling you the caliber of your gun.
Benjamin prowler is .177 cal, these are .22 cal pellets so it's a no...
