Item Code: RWS-2317384 [PY-P-794]
Things I liked: Well made, precise pellets. I use these in my HW95 .22 and these are dead-on accurate out to 25 yards, and maybe a bit more. I like the wide skirt and how tall the cone is for penetration. On head shots for squirrels, I know that the damage to the skull is significant on both side on, and front on shots. I had one the other day with a back of the head shot at 25 yards that literally left the skull in the entry area in multiple small pieces. Lights out immediately and isn't that what we are all looking for in our hunts? Ethical kills. These pellets are very good for that.
Things I would have changed: It would be nice to have a 500 count tin, and some padding on the inside of the tin.
What others should know: If you hunt, give these a try. You won't get the 40-50 yard accuracy of a round nose diablo, but these are lasers in the 20-25 yards range for small game.
Things I liked: The RWS Superpoint is one of the two "pointed" pellets I have tried. About the other (with the same name from a different maker) I will say nothing. These pellets are "tall" compared to the RWS Superdomes or the H&N FTTs and about equal in weight. The pellets in the one tin I bought had a weight distibution with an average of 14.5 +/- 0.2 grains. I have no idea what the size distribution of these pellets is since I do not have a pellet gage. But the "fit" into the chamber of my D350 was as consistent as their Superdome cousins. A light finger push and that was that. Accuracy was ok. With iron sights, at 10 meters, sitting (in my chair), the median radius from a 25-shot trial was 0.219 inches. Not bad, but a number of impacts were clearly "sideways". I have no data on accuracy at 25 yards, but in light of the tumbling I am not optimistic.
Things I would have changed: The standard deviation in the weight distribution in the tin I bought is 2 times that of the weight distributions from the 2 tins of the RWS Superdomes. This sort of weight scatter is what I find in tins of pellets made in China. But I do not pay a premium for the Chineese products. At about $35 per 1000, I expect quite a bit better QA from RWS.
What others should know: Unlike the stout "double skirt" the Superdomes have these pellets are very thin-walled. The skirts are rather soft and easy to bend, or damage, though I found no bent skirts in the tin I bought. A soft skirt in a pellet with a light fit into a chamber is supposedly an "advantage" since the compressed air can "expand" the skirt and press-fit it into the barrel grooves. But what do I know... For the same money, I will stick with their cousins, the RWS Superdomes. Or go with H&N FTTs and save a bit...
Things I liked: Great packaging. One hole accuracy in Hammerli 850.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
accuracy in np trail Benjamin?
These will work in the Benjamin Trail but domed, or round nose, pellets are usually the most accurate.
