Things I liked:

VERY accurate in my Condor using CO2...Consistent 1/4" or less hole in hole groups at 40 yards...When I first tested them I was getting ticked with so many fliers until I realized they were actually one hole shots instead...

Things I would have changed:

Nothing...

What others should know:

After testing 12 different pellets these came out on top using my AirForce Condor at 40 yards...The Air Arms Falcon 13.43 grains came in second followed very closely by the 14.3 grain JSB Exacts and then the 15.9 JSB Exacts with 1/2" groups at 40 yards...I didn't try any of the heavier Kodiaks and Barracudas because of using CO2 and the lower available energy... With the Condor on CO2 these were averaging 720 fps for 18.4 ft. lbs...Plenty for my back yard target shooting and occasional crow hunting. Some say these are re-packaged JSB's and that may be but all my CO2 air rifles prefer the Air Arms over the JSB's for whatever reason...

    Things I liked:

    I ended up ordering 9 tins of these Air Arms Diabolo field pellets. I havent shot all pellets but overall most of my rifles liked these the best! This time around what jumped out at me the most was how clean these are compared to the crosman pellets I would buy locally. I wash em all regardless but they did a fine job from the factory. Very consistent and uniform! These are softer lead than the crosman pellets , so the skirts really conform to the barrel and seal up nicely! The pros always say find the pellet that works best and then stick with it! Thats my plan! Pyramid is the only way to go imo! Buy 3 and get the 4th pack free really helps to keep cost down and really makes me appreciate this company! Will certainly be coming back when I start to get low

    Things I would have changed:

    If I had to nitpick and come up with something Id say maybe use a can that the lid screws on instead but I havent had any issues with them opening up accidentally.

    Things I liked:

    I bought these because my rifle no longer likes the JSB hades 15.89. Perhaps my last tin is a bad batch. These shoot very well in my .22 kral np03. I don't shoot for groupings, I shoot metal spinners at 28 yards, and with these, I can hit it every time.

    Things I would have changed:

    N/A

    What others should know:

    These pellets also shoot harder in my rifle than the Hades 15.89 and the H&N copper 14.66. When shooting my metal flip target at 28 yards, these make the targets flip whereas the hades (when I made contact) and the H&N could not flip it.

    Things I liked:

    Has best accuracy in my gun (umarex origin) out of 15 other type of pellets, yes even better than jsb 18.13.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lower the price

    What others should know:

    No regrets, very accurate. Shot a squirrel at 50 yd in the head, and it was a complete pass through with energy running at 29 fpe from the muzzle.

    Things I liked:

    The Golden Pellet for my Zbroia 550 Sapsan. Consistent 10 round 1/2" groups at 30 yards from bench rest, 3/4" groups from bipod and my old shaking shoulder both at 870 - 940 fps, doesn't seem to make a lick of difference. Darn few bad pellets and even they are close enough. Pellets are clean and consistent in weight about .3 gr. range out of the 50 I checked with most being spot on, again close enough.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would change nothing.

    What others should know:

    VERY well packed against the shock of shipping. The last order was the best ever, give the shipping person a bonus.

    Things I liked:

    These pellets have a nice, clean finish. They work in all my .22 caliber air guns. I have not done a good accuracy test to compare Air Arms Diabolo pellets to the other pellets I commonly use. But at 60 yards, I think these are maybe the best I have tried. That is based on group sixes.

    These pellets are very accurate in my FX Crown, not so much in my first generation Marauder.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    The 5.51 head size makes this pellet the most accurate one in my Crown, even better than the JSB pellets. Five shot groups at 20 yards look like one 25 caliber hole.

    These are the best pellets for my semi-auto Benjamin Marauder. Better groupings than even the JSB pellets of different weights.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate

    Things I would have changed:

    I have never seen so many bent skirts but it doesn’t seem to affect accuracy much. I picked 10 ugly ones ran them at 900 fps in my mk3 Wildcat one fat hole at 30 yards.

    What others should know:

    The skirts on these are very thin. I believe this contributes to there accuracy. Compared to H&N pellets of similar design is the only real difference. I believe they seal better and have less friction. Now get more 18 gr ones on the boat. This is ridiculous

    Things I liked:

    They shoot great. They fly just like the JSB 15.89 for me.

    Like all pellets there were a few bent skirts etc.

    Put side by side with the JSB there is a slight difference but they fly and hit the same for me.

    Ordered 2k rounds and so far the first time has been great. Almost no bent skirts, pellets are Lazer accurate out of my fx maverick 22 sniper at 830fps to 900fps.

    Things I would have changed:

    The price is getting a bit much these days for everything airgun related and I've yet to see anything new that warrants those prices. Also screw top lids come on it's 2021 let's step it up people.

    What others should know:

    I know airarm pellets are made by JSB but I feel as if there of a better quality then the Jsb counterpart less damaged skirts in the tins.

    Things I liked:

    I tried these because of the pellet shortage and I'm glad I did. They are very well made and accurate out of my Akela, P-Rod and Urban. Had I known how good they would perform I would have ordered more. They are a cheaper alternative( one whole dollar) to the JSB 15.89 and perform equal to or in some cases better than the JSB's. If you need an alternate pellet because your favorite one is not available, I would highly recommend the Air Arms 16.00gr.
