Item Code: RWS-2315012 [PY-P-213]
Things I liked: The best pellet so far in my Umarex/Walther CP88. Great packaging, very consistent performance. You can slip one of these boxes into your pocket and they make NO noise when walking around. That doesn't matter that much when you first get them since you're nuts if you're hunting with a wadcutter, but once the box is empty you can refill them with your favorite field hunting pellet for an additional measure of stealth.
Things I would have changed: More for less money would always be nice, but otherwise there's not much to dislike here.
What others should know: These are pricey for sure, but in this case you sure do seem to get what you pay for!
Things I liked: Nothing beats these pellets if your gun likes 4.50 mm. No need to weigh them like other pellets for precision match shooting.
Things I would have changed: I wish RWS would make them in 4.49, & 4.51mm.
Things I liked: A very consistent, well protected pellet.
Things I would have changed: Other than a lower price, nothing. I still give it five stars for value because you get what you pay for. Still, these are too expensive for most people to shoot everyday. Save them for major competitions.
What others should know: When talking quality, you generally get what you pay for. These pellets are essentially the same pellets you get in the can except that they are given a higher level of inspection for consistency and then placed in a foam container that separates and protects each pellet until you use it. In our competitive junior air rifle club, we use Meisterkugeln and R-10 canned pellets for practice and regional competitions. At junior national competitions this past summer, we used sleeved pellets that were donated by a supporter and our kids all set personal high scores during the competitions. How much was because of the higher quality of the pellets and how much because of the psychological effects from shooting with such a rare and expensive coomodity? Who knows. But in the context of the total cost of the trip, this was a small investment to help the kids do the best they could do from either the physical or mental perspective.
