  • Daniel from USA asked:

    I noticed on H&N website that these are specified only for PCP rifles. Do you know why?

    • Mark from USA:

      Because the pellet are light and hard they do not generate a lot of back pressure. H &N is worried that a spring/piston/gas piston gun will damage the piston seal because the piston will slam into the end of the air chamber. PCP airguns have no pistons. Is this a valid precaution? No one has ever complained that this has happened.

  • SentinelBert from USA asked:

    This alloy is harder than lead pellets. Will it damage my barrel over time? What about residue buildup?

    • Mark from USA:

      There is no lasting damage. Any cleaning procedure will remove the residue.

  • Pete from USA asked:

    Has anyone used these in a Crosman 1077?

    • Zdenek from USA asked:

      I'm shooting indoors on paper and plinking targets. I'd like to avoid dust. Will these pellets shatter when shot into a standard metal pellet trap or will they deform but remain intact?

      • Andrew from USA:

        No detectable dust. They deform nicely and predictably. Being lead free, there is no lead to worry about in any form. I shoot these indoors into a modified Crosman 853 trap, a Gamo Rocker trap and an Air Venturi Stampede, all at 10m. They work very well for my indoor range as described.

      • Val from USA:

        They will deform.

      • Peter from USA:

        Stick some rags inside the trap and then it won't matter. (and it will be a lot quieter)

    • John from USA asked:

      What is the pellet material made of? Is it pure or an alloy?

      • Val from USA:

        mostly tin. USA Shooting team tested these and found them accurate.

    • James from USA asked:

      Are these pellets allowed in sanctioned competitions?

      • Val from USA:

        sure, no competitions out there make restrictions on the material used in a pellet. You can shoot paper spitballs if you like as long as it's safe and gets you the gold medal go for it!

      • Cory from USA:

        It would depend on the competition and its specific rules. You would want to ask the competition organizer.
