Are these the same as the ones I bought years ago and are marked Die #2 on the back side of the box?
Do these 1250 count boxes of the ultra magnums contain the same pellets as the 500 ct. tins? The tins come out to 1.9 cents/pellet vs the 1250 ct box being 2.4 cents/pellet. I know several years ago I bought a tin of 7.9 grain premiers and they were terrible, often times so undersized that they slipped right through the barrel when loading, but the pellets in a bulk box were very uniform and worked extremely well in most of my airguns. I can only assume that Crosman put their seconds in the tins and sold the good ones in the bulk boxes.
I can't speak for current production, but historically, the boxed premiers have been held to a higher standard and are die/lot specific. The tins are not.
Are these not available in 22 anymore?
No, only in .177 now
What pellets should I order for the RWS Model 34 Panther Pro Compact? I'm purchasing this for my husband for Christmas. Is there anything else I should purchase - the main target will be squirrels.
Yes these work very well on squirrels. Good choice.
What is the head size?
No problem. I stand corrected.
4.50mm(some in the 4.49 range) measured with a highly accurate Pelletguage. Sorry Stanley, 4.43mm is wrong. I have never seen a .177 pellet head size as small as 4.43.
Measures 4.43mm or 0.174 inches.
