Things I liked:

Sot them out of my FX Impact at 935 fps at the muzzle. They do expand on varmints when launched at that velocity, causing damage similar to that of .22 LR HP bullets. They are also quite accurate in the FX STX Superior liner. Not JSB Exact King accuracy, but close enough. They shoot more flatly than domed pellets at the same velocity and as stated, do significantly more damage.

Things I would have changed:

They are quite dirty. Expect to see lots of lead shavings everywhere as the result of the manufacturing process. Cost is high.They are expensive compared to traditional domed pellets, almost twice the cost, similar to .22 WMR ammo. If you are hunting at extended range, or are shooting larger varmints up to and including raccoons and or coyotes, they may be worth the expense.

What others should know:

I assume if you are considering these it is because you plan to hunt with them. They need to be pushed to higher velocities to get expansion. I don't know the lower velocity limit at which they will not expand, but I do know they do not expand on small varmints at 750 fps or less in the .22 version. I suspect the lower limit is somewhere between 800 and 850 fps. If your .25 cal airgun won't push a 26 gr pellet at least that fast, don't expect these to perform better. In my gun, a 26 gr pellets will start at 950 fps; these slugs are 15 fps slower and yet perform impressively. Think Predator Polymags, but better out past 50 yds. The higher BC of the slugs is supposed to be an advantage at longer ranges if you can start them fast enough. Lastly, these aren't backyard projectiles in the .25! Launched at 935 fps they are packing 50 FPE. Expect richochets and pass-throughs that could be dangerous, obviously.

Things I liked:

Could not use them. They fell down the barrel of my Marauder after I load them. I called Pyramid air several times but they never got back to me. Terrible support. Do not buy.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate out of my Impact M3 Standard Superior Liner. Weight in my last batch very tight tolerance at 26.2 grains +/- one tenth of a grain.

    Things I would have changed:

    Cleanliness of the slug. Lead flakes GALORE and have, repeat HAVE to wash them before shooting. I find this inexcusable for a slug that is $16 for 100.

    What others should know:

    If you dont mind washing your ammo (i personally cant stand it) try these. The weight tolerance is much better than avg. Also...can shoot them at a pretty high speed (960 fps) without high Reg pressure in my Impact due to its lighter weight than most, conserves air.

    Things I liked:

    It is hard to say what I liked about them since I wasn't really comfortable using them

    Things I would have changed:

    Did not fit well in my Gamo .25 Magnum. They were very tight fitting to where I couldn't get theback end of the slug into the barrel flush. I used other .25 pellets that were the same 26 grains, and worked very well. but, these are just a bit bigger than expected

    Things I liked:

    I shoot an older Hatsan .25 caliber AT-44W. The slugs hit consistently an inch or inch and half low at 25 yards. The hits are centered though. I dug one out of my back board and found very distinct rifling marks on the body of the slug. Just a guess that the slugs are grabbing the rifling and slowing down the velocity. Pellets are shaped differently. There is only the head and the skirt to grab the rifling.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    Some rifles may not be powerful enough to handle slugs.

    Things I liked:

    Consistent. Nice polished appearance. Shoot nicely from my Hatsan .25 Flashpup, on paper the holes touch at 30 yds. Snug fit in barrel, I can feel a slight resistance when reloading that I have never felt with another type of ammo. Expansion and energy transfer is major. Exit hole in a orange is the size of a 50 cent piece. I test hollow point expansion by shooting into a 6 gallon bucket of water from 3'. Amazingly, my bucket split 12" and the pellet was in pieces. Other hollow points have never expanded like this!

    Things I would have changed:

    Interesting tray packaging, but it likely leaks lead particles. If the pellets were cleaner this would not be a problem. Pricey, but these will be my go to hunting ammo.

    What others should know:

    If your gun likes them, and you put value on accurate and effective ammo, these may be worth the extra cost.

    Things I liked:

    Hit extremely hard with insane exoansion out of my Benjamin Trail xl .25. Average grouping at 30 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    More available in a package. Less expensive

    What others should know:

    I know these aren't meant for break barrel or gas ram. But they worked extremely well out of my Trail Xl.25. I would compare the expansion to the diameter of a 9mm bullet. It was crazy how much they mushroom.

    Things I liked:

    Clean and uniform slugs. Very well packaged, each slug is in its own chamber. These are not piled up on each other like other brands.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a single thing.

    What others should know:

    These shot hole in hole out of my RAW, Rapid and Marauder. I shoot off a bunch in my basement at 45 feet to see what my guns like before going to a range.

    Things I liked:

    The flight is much more consistent than the .25cal I have tried. At impact on the targets the pass through is clean and the holes as well. Trajectory is definitely flatter at distance than a standard pellet. The ballistics are noticeably better over most of the pellets I shoot, just a great combination. Too many things I could say, but almost all are praises mostly this hybrid rocks. One outstanding fact, the pseudo skirt for this hybrid is why I love these over pellets. Not one of the skirts showed damage or deformities to the naked eye..

    Things I would have changed:

    Available in More calibers

    What others should know:

    I have tested this only in my Brocock sniper. And that gun loved it. So I ordered five more packs

    Things I liked:

    Almost as accurate as JSBs out of my Airforce TalonP with no adjustments to power setting, expand nicely on small game.

    Things I would have changed:

    A heavier option. 26gr is a little light for a .25 cal slug, lower price, slightly smaller diameter, these are extremely tight in my TalonP barrel.

    What others should know:

    I'd only use these for hunting due to the cost but there are cheaper slug options with comparable accuracy on the market.
