Things I liked:

First off, they look great. It's almost a shame that they're gonna get shot out of a barrel. Very accurate, increases gun's ft/s by about ±20%.. Great penetration and expansion.

Things I would have changed:

Get more for your money !

What others should know:

I use these on my Walther CP99 and my Beretta PX4 Storm, with great results. The more powerful the airgun, the more you'll see how much more velocity these pellets add to your ft/s coming out the muzzle. Gotta love 'em.

    Things I liked:

    They tend to be quite consistent in weight and size. It is a fairly hard alloy, so they keep their shape pretty well in the container. Very high muzzle velocity due to the low weight, which combined with the aforementioned hard alloy gives them very good penetration at short to medium ranges.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stupidly expensive! No doubt at least partly due to the gold plating(They are only plated, not solid gold. There seems to be quite a few people confused about that.), which seems more gimmicky than anything. It does prevent oxidation, but that tends not to be an issue with lead free pellets anyway. These are very nearly .22 long rifle prices per shot, even in today's wonky ammo market.

    What others should know:

    While all airguns tend to be fairly picky about what ammo they like, I find these to have little in the way of middle ground. In a few of my guns they are incredibly accurate. In the others, they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Also, due to the relatively low weight, I would use a great deal if caution when trying them in an older spring gun. Newer springers and gas springers are probably fine with these, but older ones may end up with a broken mainspring. These pellets also tend to not be great at longer ranges. While the initial velocity is very high, they bleed it pretty quickly because of the low weight. They are also very sensitive to wind drift for the same reason. Overall, a pretty good pellet if penetration is your primary concern and your gun likes them. But there are better options out there these days, and at much better prices.

    make them shoot better

    What others should know:

    I originally thought these were amazing, after putting 40 plus through each of my rifles they would not shoot consistent or accurately. Got them from the combo pack from gamo. These are 6.30 mm long so they will fit in the Magazine of the new Hatsan 1911 so im tempted to buy it and see how they do in a pistol. I assume the sounds with still be awesome. we shall see.

    Things I liked:

    Clean, smooth, fairly consistent size, nice weight & accuracy at close ranges up to 20 yds

    Things I would have changed:

    Price for sure. Too expensive for the quantity received.

    What others should know:

    Would have to buy 3 get one free to minimize cost. Would also need free shipping. . . .otherwise much too expensive. However, they do shoot well (just started using in Hammerli .177 with excellent results). Accuracy and speed for knockdown power on pest birds in the Hammerli.

    Things I liked:

    They make a loud crack and are somewhat consistent in quality and accuracy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Fix the seem from the molding process. Better quality control would fix that.

    What others should know:

    They make any ~1000fps gun loud. Almost as loud as a .22lr. It's cool and all, but kinda gets old after a while. They're extremely expensive, and aren't even worth getting for hunting since they don't have much weight, and are too expensive for target rounds.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    These pellets can be picked up with a magnet. So they are not alloy through and through.

    Things I liked:

    The color, the way they penetrate.

    Things I would have changed:

    They are very expensive. I got some as a novelty and would shoot more of them if they were a little cheaper.

    What others should know:

    I shot some of these in my Crosman 357 and they sizzle. This is probable the best use of these, getting the most out of less powerful air guns. I tried them in my Beeman RS 2 and they are way too loud. I didn't even try to see how they group. But in the 357 and my Daisy 008 they shoot real good. Fast and pretty accurate. Also, the batch I got was very uniform unlike many of the reviews I have read.

    Things I liked:

    I don't mean to sound like a negative guy who always complains about stuff for the sake of complaining In fact ive never had a complaint in any of my reviews but here is the first. They got stuck in my beeman 1048 example it took 2-3 shots before they would finally shoot out. When they did though they go through 1 inch of wood every time, I only used 5 due to the fear of hurting my rifle, sorry Gamo

    Things I would have changed:

    quantity for the price is terrible.

    What others should know:

    that's pretty much all that had to be said

  • 4.0 4.0

    2.0 2.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Great for penetrating targets with 1377 and spring piston pistols. Accuracy is good with pistols and rifles at 25-30 yards. I can hit aerosol cans with ease.

    Things I would have changed:

    make 150-200 count unit! Improve QC for .177 caliber as some are deformed.

    What others should know:

    Great for shooting at sub sonic speeds. If shot out of a air gun that is powerful these are loud and unstable in flight. Shoot at less than 1100 fps for best results.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely accurate out of my RWS Model 35. My range is 90' long and this pellet prints into 3/8" to 1/4", depending on my hold. Hard hitting pellet!

    Things I would have changed:

    This is relatively expensive for the quantity received. Maybe pack more into the deal?

    What others should know:

    These will probably work reasonably well in just about any air rifle. My Model 35,(no longer manufactured by RWS)shows a definite preference for this pellet.

    for the price not bad,unless u want to pay ultra premium price for ur pells

    What others should know:

    have a lathed pellet seater made for u from 1/2" round alumnum 4" long my accuracy improved by 17%

    Things I liked:

    I love the weight and shape, i havent chronographed it but its easy to tell they increase velocity also i didnt have one pellet damaged the slightest bit. Oh, and the container was pretty cool.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make them out of something other than gold to reduce the price and increase how many you get

    What others should know:

    They're very fun pellets, however ive shot two birds and sadly did not bring them down so the poor little fellas are still flying around hurt :( Bottom line, id say they're more for fun plinking if you've got the money and not reccomended for game. My review is based off of the performance of a Crosman Quest 1000x

    Things I liked:

    Great pellet and very high velocity, very hard, and very accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    more quantities availible

    What others should know:

    You should try and shoot these rounds with an IGT or inert gas piston or nitro piston because of the sheer power they need to fly at high speeds. the hardness of them doesnt allow lower FPS gun the expand the skirt on exit thus making them turbulent. TRY them with an IGT for precision shooting.
