By Tom from USA on 2008-01-03 18:03:25

Things I liked:

This pellet is one of the best .177 pellets of all time. For many years, I've used it in field target competition, and it works well in my USFT rifle.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing.

What others should know:

Heavy pellets like this may not work well in many spring guns, but try them anyway. They usually work well in PCPs, multi-pumps and CO2 rifles.

    Things I liked:

    Started using these in my older Hunter 220. A diet of these makes the 220 very consistant and accurate over lighter pellets. Using original FO sights you can shoot this gun with confidence.

    What others should know:

    Definately try these in your .177 gun. It may surprise you.

    Things I liked:

    No graphite, great wind resistance, pellets look almost polished to a finish

    Things I would have changed:

    The lid. You could use the old chewing gum and liquorice trick and get this lid off. There is no friction between the lid and the can

    What others should know:

    Accurate as hell out of my Quest with Tarantula spring, shooting them in the lower mid 800's. Some fit just a bit loose, but most push in with the same force

    Things I liked:

    Clean. Nicely formed. Extremely accurate. Excellent penetration.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    The only airgun I own is a Daisy 880 Powerline. According to my CED M2 Chronograph they average 560 fps at 10 pumps. 10 shot groups from an honest 15 yards were consistently at or under 1/2". Rarely would a group open up to half and inch, pretty sure it was my fault when they did. 10 shot groups of 1/4" - 3/8" were common, bullet center to bullet center. It's unusual to not be able to cover a 10 shot group from my gun with a dime. The only pellet I've found that out penetrates these are the 13.0gr Big Boy Heavy-Weights. The 15.8gr Big Boy Seniors penetrated equally in my testing. For some reason Pyramyd Air is selling these as 10.20gr pellets. Right on the pellet tin it says 10.65gr. I don't have a scale so I'm not sure who I should believe.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, other than maybe quality control, you get a couple where the edges are a little bent but it doesnt seem to affect the accuracy.

    What others should know:

    Best pellet I have found for my Gamo Hunter Sport, nothing shoots nearly as accurate of with as much knock down.

    Things I liked:

    These pellets group the best of any I have tried in my Gamo Whisper. I guess the weight works well at the fps generated. They grouped consistently well at 10 (dime size), 20 (nickel size), and 30 yards (quarter size). I am looking forward to some small game hunting while walking through the woods.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if the container had a screw on lid. I tape the tin back together after I open it, but the screw on lid mightier be nice.

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    These were fairly accurate in my Talon SS on high pressure air. I did not try them on CO2. I marked them as 4 stars because even though they are fairly accurate they are not the most accurate for my rifle. However, they may be in yours. You should know by now how gun specific a pellet can be. Give them a try.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the pellets weigh what's printed on the tin or vice-versa.

    What others should know:

    These pellets are advertised as 10.65gr but in the tin I got they weighed 10.0-10.2gr. These lower weights are confirmed by PA.

    Things I liked:

    Nice tight fit in my Gamo! Heavy and hard hitting. Pushed one of these and a crossman destroyer (i use these for waste shooting) through my barrel with a push rod. The resistance was double and rifling showed on the H&N much more pronounced. Good shot!

    Things I would have changed:

    Coat pellets so they are more finger friendly.

    What others should know:

    Don't put lead in your mouth?

    Things I liked:

    This pellet gives me good accuracy at 20 yards with my Gamo CFX. I can obtain half inch groups at times. When I replace the trigger and install a gas piston, I hope to tighten the groups up more.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. The quality is excellent. Of course a lower price would be nice.

    Things I liked:

    Using an SS2L scoped German FWB #124, I tested just about every Beeman pellet this Spring to see what I wanted to stock up on. I had originally purchased 10 tins of H&N match when I bought the rifle. Excellent for target shooting in the basement and very easy to see the holes. Not so great for field use and/or beyond ten yds. The Beeman Silver Stings provided exceptional accuracy from 12-30+ yds. I had not purchased the Kodiak Match since they were not available yet, and I had not expected to have any need for the extra weight. Wow, was I wrong. I was very pleased with the Silver Sting and these are the easiest of them all for loading the .177. That was until I had difficulty confirming hits on my aluminum cans, as the pellets just sliced right through. On this rifle, the Kodiak Match out performed ALL the pellets I have out to 50 yds, which is about my max effective range. I dropped a very large crow at 45 yds, 35' up a tree with one shot off hand. I was impressed! You won't have to guess if you hit an aluminum can at 55 yds either. Many cans are ripped right off their hangers. I only use two pellets now. The Silver Sting (best over all accuracy) and the Kodiak Match (best all around performer and hardest hitting). I am fortunate to have a couple of wooded acres behind the house to set up numerous targets on trees out to and beyond 50 yds. Once I get beyond 45-50 yds, my hits drop significantly. Not having a back stop makes it very difficult to make any adjustments to figure out where the pellets are going. I did test the ammo at a range off a bench, and the ammo was excellent at 50 yds. It's a completely different story shooting on a hillside in the woods and holding the rifle. It is probably the most accurate of all firearms I own today. 30 yrs ago, it would have been my Ruger 77 varmint 22.250.

    Things I would have changed:

    Hard to believe after all the comments and so many years later, the company still provides their pellets in these tins that do not have locking lids. I keep my pellets in small prescription med bottles and only open the new tins when needed. When hunting, I just put a handful in my pants pocket.

    What others should know:

    DO NOT use firearm bore cleaner in the air rifle. Watch American Airgunner TV! It's a great program and provides a wealth of information on all types of airguns. Beware of your backstop with these powerful firearms. You can't be too safe! Since I started using this 4-5 times a week all summer, it's worth mentioning to oil your gun (especially the barrel) after every use. I got lax and realized a bit too late my barrel had started to rust. I now oil it after every use and will be looking to buy some of the RB-17 rust remover just as a precaution.
