    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.

    Things I liked:

    Very high quality ammunition. All of the pellets are uniform, and I just can't complain about anything. Extremely accurate as well.

    Things I would have changed:

    price... but then again, you get what you pay for, so maybe the price should stay the same?

    What others should know:

    excellent pellet for high-powered air guns, very effective for hunting... these things pack a wallop!

    Things I liked:

    Very nice groupings. Very high quality. The crossman pellets are complete junk compared to these. The led won't come off on your hands.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if you could buy a 5000 pack of these.

    Things I liked:

    Best of all pellets , consistant shape , size , and performance . Heavy weight and shape keeps them accurate and still packing a punch down range .

    Things I would have changed:

    screw on lid for the tin

    Things I liked:

    Consistent Shape, Increase in accuracy. Hard Hitting. Does the job right and it does dependably. I love these pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    A screw top tin. For sure. I had to tape the lid shut with electric tape. Is it such a huge cost increase to add some thread grooves on the tin?

    What others should know:

    When these run out I will buy again for sure.

    Things I liked:

    My RWS 34 Panther loves this pellet. Hard hitting and very accurate. Zero is set at 20 yards and with the utilization of my 4x32 leapers mil scope, 1.5 mil hold-over at 60 yards and still able to hit a quarter consistently after 10 consecutive shots.

    Things I would have changed:

    Screw on lid.

    What others should know:

    Best use with magnum (Company stated 1000fps) springers, PCP & multipumps. Clean your barrel and give a tin a try.

    Things I liked:

    Truly outstanding pellet. Quality surpassed all brands I have ever used, including RWS, JSB exact. Super accurate if your gun is capable of handling its heavy weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    One of the most expensive pellet on the market, but It surely worth every penny. Will stock up if I can find a better deal.

    What others should know:

    Try Kodiak before blaming on your gun for poor accuracy.

    nothing

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy!!! These are very accurate in my RWS 460. I could probably put 5 shots in a single hole with this pellet at 20 yards if the gun was in some kind of vise. I like the fact the top doesnt screw on. Its easier to open with one hand. Then again, If I dropped the can they would probably go everywhere.

    Things I would have changed:

    Well I wish they would go farther. Being a heavy pellet they are only really useable to so far.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Diabolo Baracuda pellets are great. You can put 5 pellets in one hole at 10 yds. Great accuracy! The fit is a little tighter than the Crossman pellets and that could be why they shoot better. I strongly recommend, as these pellets are of excellent quality.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price is way above average for these pellets but if H&N can only add a foam liner and a screw-on top lid it will be the perfect buy.

    What others should know:

    Excellet accuracy in my GAMO Whisper. If you can afford several cans, buy 3 and get one FREE.....I'm sure you'll enjoy them!

    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.

    This pellet hits hard! My Beeman likes them and so does my 30 year old Benjamin.

    What others should know:

    ideal for air rifles 1000 ft/sec and up, preferably up on the higher powered air guns

    This pellet deserves all the positive comments I have read about it on Pyramyd's blog.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    This pellet for me strikes at almost precisely the same POI as the Ram Jet and Superdome at 25 yards. Its extra weight also results in CONSIDERABLY greater impact, as I have discovered that spent CO2 cartridges struck at 25 yards with the JSB Exact show only a tiny lead smear, while the Kodiak makes a healthy dent and sends the cartridge flying nine feet!
