Things I liked: 4 different pellets to try all in one package without having to purchase them separately.
Things I would have changed: "Carefully selected" label is misleading. I'm new to air rifles and the concept of pellet sorting, head size, pellet grain etc. so I decided to look at each pellet. 16%, 64 out of 400 were deformed in the skirt with either a flat spot on one or multiple sides and clear mold lines with lead still attached. 27 straton, 18 exact RS, 9 exact heavy, 10 exact. By comparison my 300ct Beeman Kodiak match had ZERO defective pellets.
What others should know: I have not shot any of the pellets for accuracy, but a visual inspection and comparison to the Beeman Kodiak Match and H&N Hunter Pellet sampler place the JSB sampler a distant 3rd on physical pellet quality. Disappointing due to the label implying the pellets went through some form of sorting and selection.
Things I liked: This sampler pack allowed me to try four different pellet weights and determine which is best for my gun, without buying 500 pellets in each weight. I've been shooting 7.9 grain wadcutters through my new CO2 pellet revolver while sighting the gun in on ten meter range targets. I was easily able to determine that my revolver shot more accurately with the 7.3 grain pellets in the sampler.
Things I would have changed: The packaging is a bit disappointing. I have seen lead 'split shot' fishing weights in better packaging, where the top is clear plastic and there is a pin attaching it to the base so you can spin the top to select the weight of pellets that you want. You can see the different compartments, and the different weight pellets don't get mixed up.
What others should know: Because CO2 pistols have shorter barrels than rifles, and less power than pump up, spring or gas guns they aren't going to throw the heavier 10.3 grain pellets very well past thirty feet. They are still great pellets for plinking.
Things I liked: Great sampler to test which pellets group the best in the rifle. It has nice cut-out to on the lid label so you can rotate to each section and not spill or mix the different types.
Things I would have changed: The only reason I gave this a good rating is they definitely need to have a way to tell which pellet is which. Lid tells you what types but open the tin and the four compartments are not labeled. Coned pellet is obvious but the other look to similar. I had to look up the different types and the compare the pellet picture to identify which is which.
What others should know: Nice to have a sampler vs. buying separate tins to see which works best in your rifle.
