Things I liked:

Nothing

Things I would have changed:

I personally could not get these to load easily from a pellet pen. I placed the pen as squarely as possible over the breach, but the cut tip apparently kept the pellet from loading correctly. After attempting a load with the pen, I always had to use my finger to press the pellet entirely into the chamber. I do not have this problem with any other style of Crossman or Benjamin pellet, just the Piranha.

What others should know:

I was loading these into a .22 Benjamin Titan NitroPiston air rifle.

    Things I liked:

    They didn't jam in my barrel. That's about it. Something about the serrations in the nose of the pellet I guess. I have tried them in my Benjamin Steel Eagle and I get like a shotgun pattern. I shot the Crosman Premier hollow point and or dome pellets (they are all the same weight and basic design) with fairly good accuracy. The Piranha just doesn't want to shoot strait. I tried them also in .177 cal. and the same thing. The "teeth" in the nose are dull and probably the reason they shoot so wildly. ( Just my guess ) Some guns may like them but both my rifles ( Crosman Nitro Venom Dusk .177 and Benjamin Steel Eagle .22) really don't like them.

    Things I would have changed:

    Everything.

    What others should know:

    I will not buy them any more. You can try them in your rifle or hand gun if you want and get your own results but, in my opinion they are junk. I wouldn't even use them for general plinking. I wouldn't know where the pellet was going.

    Things I liked:

    Price vs piece count. If you are just shooting cans, bottles, whatever, then this is the cheep round to buy. Not as good as the Crosman dome or hollowpoint pellets as far as accuracy is concerned. Think it must be the design of the face of the pellet, those rough spots, and air channels got to be playing havoc on the pellet at greater range. I can 3/4" hole hollow points and domes at 50 yards. The best I can do is 2 to 3" groups with the piranha.

    Things I would have changed:

    leave the roughness off the front of the pellet, or at least knock the lead bulges off. Maybe change it to more of the hades design. OR better yet. cover the air-grabbing rough front with some wax to smooth it out.

    What others should know:

    going to try and smooth out the front of a few pellets and put a drop of wax on them to see if the shot group tightens up any at 50 yards. Right now would be scared to shoot squirrels or pest birds at any range with these as I can't predict where they are going to hit.

    Things I liked:

    I was shooting the GAMO RED FIRE 22 CAL PELLETS,and the tips kept breakong off in the tin and they cost way too much so i bought me a tin of THE CROSSMAN PREMIER PRANNA 400 CT i just tried them out in my GAMO MAGNUM 22 CAL rifle and they shot superb i didnt even have to re adjust the scope any at all hole to hole @ 25yards i will for sure hunt Squirrels this up coming season i would recommend these pellets to anyone i have switched for good now

    Things I would have changed:

    NOTHING AT ALL!!!!

    Things I liked:

    Quality, very few damaged pellets. They punch big holes through spray paint cans

    Things I would have changed:

    If you could make em more accurate. I think it's the design. Looks cool, but isnt smooth and doesn't move through the air as well as regular HP pellets

    What others should know:

    These didnt do well in my diana magnum break barrel. They only did okay in the Benjamin Marauder.

    What others should know:

    I shot this pellet with my Umarex Octane, none No-Shox, on two separate days. On 1/13/2020, a 5 shot chronographed: 773, 771, 768, 776, 768 fps, averaging 771 fps. 48 degrees. On 3/3/2020, a 5 shot chronographed: 787, 795, 790, 789, 795 fps, averaging 791 fps. 52 degrees. Accuracy test was conducted at 3 inch Birchwood/Casey stick on targets, 90 foot distance. After taking 3-5 shots for zeroing in, I hit the 3 inch targets well within the 3 inch circular targets perimeter. I recommend this pellet, and would consider purchasing this item again. Accuracy tests were conducted without my Predator bench, but with the fore stock resting on my deck railing, my Octane mounted at my arm. Get a chronograph. Woodys World.

    Things I liked:

    Everything!! These are a very nice compromise between weight and speed. They are VERY accurate out of my Benjamin Varmint NP, with consistent groups of less than 2 inches at 30 yards. At 60 yards we have consistent groups of 4 to 6 inches, although the drop is significant by that range.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    Out of 1,000 rounds, I have found precisely 4 that did not fit well enough to fire accurately... 3 sub-caliber, one super-caliber.

    Things I liked:

    Was the weight 14.3 gr. This weight and overall shape was very comparable to the crossman premier hollowpoint pellets I was already using. Both I found very accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. An effective product!

    What others should know:

    I was using these pellets extensively with my RWS mdl 54 king air rifle. With a zoom scope, I was able to effectively hit & kill large blackbirds at 85, and up to 110 yards. However, with small game, these pellets had too much expansion to make an effective kill. For small game I would recommend a domed or pointed pellet.

    Shred tip is a wonderful design as the rifling of the barrel twist it, once it impacts its Target it drills itself into it. Brutal on small game.

    Things I would have changed:

    Longer skirt I've had some flyers and I think that may have a little bit to do with it.

    What others should know:

    If you don't need absolute Precision such as Skenko or H& N's this is a good everyday working man's hunting projectile.

    Things I liked:

    Pretty accurate for what they are, weight and consistency is good, Plenty of these in a tin.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really.

    What others should know:

    I bought a tin of these when I saw them at the local Wally world. They looked like a gimmick, but I figured I'd try them because they were inexpensive. I was shocked at how accurate these pellets were out of my Crosman 1322 and Titan GP. Way more accurate than the premieres. My 1322 especially likes them. They also flatten reliably on a steel target, so lead won't travel too far from where they hit, Which is great if you're trying to be green and are collecting your spent lead to prevent contamination. While these may not be the best pellet out there, some guns actually like them, and it's a good mix of cost/accuracy if you're target shooting or plinking. Just sharing my experience with these, YMMV

    Things I liked:

    My rather unscientific testing procedure is to fire them from a prone position about 10 yards away, the test material is plasticine clay, great for giving a worst case scenario for expansion/ penetration These pellets expanded rather underwhelming to around .25-ish while retaining a truncated "mushroom" shape, the star shaped hollow in the head allowed the lead to expand smoothly and retain shape, but not expand well, compared to the following; RWS Super-H; 100% head seperation from body, a lead ring and a solid wadcutter Predator Polymag; overexpands to almost a lead ball Newman Crow Magnum; expands to a .35 caliber wadcutter flathead, does not mushroom This is when shot from my Benjamin Trail NP2 .22

    Things I would have changed:

    This is a gimmick pellet, doesn't do much better than the standard Crosman hollow points, they are designed to catch airgunners attentionnby looking "cool" on the tin, the pellet pictured on the tin has a much "sharper" looking hollow point cavity than the actual pellets, the actual hollow cavity is shallow and dull

    What others should know:

    Save your money and go with the proven hollow points

    my results are with my guns , they may work better in yours. i shot 7 different brands and weights of pellets jsb, crosman, h&n. from 13-25 gr. these piranha pellets were by far the most inaccurate/wild of all by a good margin. i shot them from a hammerli 850 magnum and a benjamin mayhem np2 sbd

    Things I liked:

    Great value if you need a bunch of pellets to break in your rifle. I took a micrometer to a dozen of the pellets to check them very closely. (averaged .2165 nose and .2205 skirt). They checked out reasonably well, out of a dozen checked, none were undersized. The new series of Crossman premier domes which had been purchased previously had about 1 pellet in ten undersized, so it seemed sensible to check the Piranha.

    Things I would have changed:

    Accuracy, Accuracy, Accuracy. I have two air rifles (train np2 and Regal II np) which shoot the RWS superdome, Benjamin Destroyer, and the old Crossman premier dome pellets interchangeably without a scope adjustment. They group about 1/2 inch center to center at 25 meters. However, these pellets did something quite strange. They grouped, but about two inches to the right and two and a half inches down from where any other pellet grouped. I thought perhaps my scope had been bumped, so I switched back to the RWS superdome. The superdome immediately put three consecutive shots in the center of the bullseye. I switched back to the piranha, and the same low-right groupings which were seen before. Quite frankly, I don't want to deal with a 32 click vertical and horizontal adjustment just to use these pellets. I almost wonder if they are spiraling in, but can't quite catch it at (roughly) 800 feet per second.

    What others should know:

    The usual cautions, some airguns, even other Regal II NP and Trail NP2 may love these pellets. The two I have seem to actively dislike these pellets. I really cannot explain it, as the skirts appeared undented and the size of the skirt and nose of the pellets seemed to fit the bores of the rifles quite well.
