Things I liked: Plastic fins save wear and tear on bore, even on the smooth bores recommended. Elongated, narrow point facilitates 'sticking' the target (i like a dart board - designed for steel darts). Only $0.50/each, and reusable with careful handling and use.
Things I would have changed: Mold the fins with a slight twist, say 1:16", to accomodate rifled barrels. Make 'em in .22 cal. Would like to see how my Viper Shadow Express would handle 'em.
What others should know: These used to be advertised for rifled bores, I assume they gave it up because the fins are not designed for spin stablization. Yes, i might fire these through my $30 junk store cheapo springer with the rifled barrel. No, i would not dream of putting one through my Baikal MP-61, a Diana, etc. Cuz, if it ain't smooth bore now, even with the plastic surrounding the dart, my 'spicion is it will be smooth anon. OH YES, SAFETY. Just as in BBs, WEAR your safety glasses. These stick most of the time, when you hit the target, but when you hit the li'l wires on a dart board, miss the target completely, etc., you not only have a ricochet coming back at you but one with a point! Keep your shooting distance reasonable, also, say not less than 8 or 9 feet, more if possible to reduce the danger of ricochets having enough power to pierce clothing, skin, etc.
Things I liked: it just shoots well with my Browning Buck Mark Air Pistol. and I always thanks to pyramyd air for fast ship and good quality control.
Things I would have changed: none
Things I liked: Reasonably accurate, at close ranges, from pistols, haven't tried any from rifles yet - loading is the issue.
Things I would have changed: Add plastic band around front 'waist' to allow for use in rifled barrels. Would be nice to have these in other calibers, e.g., .22, .25, etc.
What others should know: I would NOT recommend using these in rifled airguns, unless the airgun specifically says it's designed for steel BBs. Even then there will be rifling erosion which will undermine accuracy.

Will these shoot with the gamo bone collector bull whisper
Can they be used with a Daisy Powerline 5170 Airstrike by loading it from the end of the barrel?
A highly qualified, PROBABLY. If, no other projectile is involved, the seals are good, etc. However, you are doing this at your own risk. Neither I nor Pyramyd Air will be in any way responsible for ANY damage to you and/or your airgun.
Can it be shot from a Beeman Xcel X2 Air rifle, RS3 Trigger?
No, that gun only shoots pellets.
