    Things I liked:

    good look's, seem to roll out of the barrel more, lot's were not round,

    Things I liked:

    easy open can. The BBs were very polished and worked flawlessly in my Duke revolver.

    Things I would have changed:

    weight of BBs causes the lid to come off easy so you must hold the can by the bottom before opening.

    What others should know:

    From what i have used so far, a great quality product.

    Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    They are 'okay', but sometimes I DO get a bounce-back, but NOTHING like a steel BB. So, they DO work. But you should still use caution, and WEAR GLASSES!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    The PRICE; WAY too much for what they do. Cut the price in half!!! Also, get that darn copper coating off the things. That copper ends-up in the gun, and bad things tend to happen with dissimilar metals coming into constant contact, like CORROSION. Hey, it can happen.

    What others should know:

    Just shoot paper targets and aluminum cans with the zinc BBs and you won't have to worry about bounce-back. Seriously, I do NOT think the usefulness warrants the cost. I would not mind paying around 15 to30% more, but NOT the current price.

    Things I liked:

    These BBs did group pretty well from my Tanfoglio Witness 1911 BB pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    As far as I can tell by using these in both my Tangfoglio Witness 1911 and my crosman 760, the power required to cause these to deform from their normal spherical shape is too great. With the Tangfoglio pistol, the BBs did not deform at all and still were likely to ricochet back at the shooter. Even the 760 rifle did not seem to cause enough deformation in the BBs to keep them from being a hazard as they ricocheted back. Otherwise, they did seem to shoot well with respect to grouping. So, I did not see that these BBs were showing their mission to deform instead of ricochet. These seem to need to be softer and more likely to deform on contact than they are now.

    What others should know:

    I hoped that these would deform and not ricochet when shot into targets just in front of my trap. Using a normal CO2 pistol like the Tanfoglio Witness 1911, I did not see this. Instead it seemed that the BBs did not noticeably deform and were quite likely to ricochet back at the shooter.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I bought these BBs for my Colt peacemaker CO2 pistol to enhance the accuracy and they are more accurate than steel BBs. The excite and the H&N copper coated pellets shot about a quarter sized group at 6 yards (off a rest). The H&N solid lead opened up considerably.

    Things I would have changed:

    More BBs for the money....Why I remember when I was a kid (and still am) you could get a big tube of BBs for 25 cents. That was in the 50s.

    What others should know:

    I would give the copper coated lead BBs a try. They are more accurate and safer than steel shot.

    Rating 2.02.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    Nice they were free, and I got to try them.

    Things I would have changed:

    These don't penetrate my thin cardboard target using three different pistols. They need more weight I guess, and a better coating.

    What others should know:

    I wasn't impressed with these. The first 10 shots, 5-6 of them bounced off the Birchwood/Casey target, mounted on thin cardboard on my target trap. Two other pistols, same thing. Giving these away might be the best way for Pyramyd to move them. I won't buy them. I'll stick to Daisys and others.

    Things I liked:

    I bought these about three weeks ago for my Umarex legends m712 so I can shoot a spinning target. They are exactly as advertised. They really reduce ricochet change. Plus if you have one of the broomhandle m712 really brings in your point of aim up a lot in a glorious way. With regular bbs shoot 3 inches high with these it's drops to about 1 and 1/4 high. For me a lot more enjoyable aim point. If these were cheaper I would only shoot these in my gun

    Things I would have changed:

    The cost and the can size. More bus per can would be better. Even more then the 750

    What others should know:

    When loading these into semiauto co2 guns if you can pull the slide back, insert the mag and then release slide or bolt. If not the top bb deforms from being pressed into the bolt and jams

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    The looks, the extra weight and they are very clean. So far they work just like bbs in 8 or 10 different air guns. 4 Daisy 415's,a Berretta Elite, 2 different Daisy 15-xt's, Umarex Morph, S&W M&P 40 (2) and an Umarex XGB (2).

    Things I would have changed:

    Larger container for cheaper price per round.

    What others should know:

    These have transformed many of my air pistols to much stronger shooters. In the strongest shooting of my pistols (Daisy 415's, Daisy 15-xt's), these things really make a difference. In my Morph with the barrel extension, new powerlet, I fired 3 shots (first out of the powerlet) with bbs at my privacy fence at 15 meters. All three bb's stuck in the fence panel at least 3/8s to 1/2 an inch. Then I shot three of the excite shot. 2 shots completely penetrated the 5/8 inch fence panal. The third shot buried over 1/2 an inch. This is a significant advancement for co2 air guns. Pyramyd still #1 ...

    Things I liked:

    These are great for situations where a high probability of ricochet is possible. They are a little pricey and heaver than steel BBs, but function perfectly in all my BB guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lower cost.

    Things I liked:

    I can use them in my Umarex Walther P38, Makarov and Luger to shoot at my metal pellet traps with minimal ricochet. The BBs physically absorb much of the energy and deform instead of bouncing all over the place.

    What others should know:

    They work well in the right BB guns in the right applications.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I like using a steel trap and with bb's that does not always work well unless you modify it as I have. These bb's work perfectly in a steel trap without an ricochets. Perfect for my needs.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, they work fine in all my bb firing pistols.

    What others should know:

    These are pricey bb's and hopefully in time they will come down in price. I took advantage of Pyramyd Air's offer to buy 3 and get 1 free. They work perfectly in all my pistols since none of my pistols use a magnetic bolt. The only thing that I noticed is that since they are a little heavier than steel bb's and because of that I tend to get a few less shots out of a co2 cartridge. All in all, I will be buying just these bb's in the future.

    Things I liked:

    These BBs are the best! I tested them out at about 25 ft., using a 14" diameter steel disk, tilted slightly downwards. Conventional steel BBs ricocheted back to and beyond my shooting position. The Smart Shot BBs ended up around the base of the target disk, flattened into a hemispherical shape. Very impressive! Guns used were a Daisy Model 25 Centennial pump gun and a Gletcher Mauser 712 selective-fire CO2 pistol...both with a muzzle velocity of 360-380 f.p.s.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    These don't richocet like traditional steel BBs making it safer for all concerned. They have a copper coating that leaves fingers clean after loading--a problem with regular lead balls. They load easily and don't deform in my pistols magazine. Will buy more when this tin is gone.

    Things I would have changed:

    The can is a problem. A screw on lid would be nice. Took me a long time to get the top off the first time (didn't want to damage the tin). If you put it on good and tight, the problem starts all over again. Will probably end up putting them in a left over "screw top" container.

    What others should know:

    These are heavier than regular BBs so they reduce velocity. Since my pistol is shooting at nearly 500'/second (according to Pyramind's 10 for 10 testing), this isn't a problem.

    Things I liked:

    Have tried these out with each of my five bb pistols: Colt Peacemaker, Makarov, Colt Commander, Colt Python, and Sig Sauer. They work well in each. I will use these pistols more now that the ricochet risk from shooting at hard surfaces is much lower than with steel bb's. They seem as accurate as steel bb's in each of my guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    The price is A bit high.
