Things I liked:

Quality, shape, feeding into the breach, The screw on lid!! Out of the the 2 .22cal rifles I have, this pellet seems to be a winner. It seems that its an match for the JSB pellet of the same weight. (18.13 gr. ) Shoots true and I get (when I do my part) 3/16" groups at 10 yards with my Steel Eagle and one hole the size of the pellet 10 shot group with my Marauder F&T. Now I have 2 to choose from when one is out of stock I just grab the other.

Things I would have changed:

not a thing.

What others should know:

Just try them, they are well made and shoot well out of my rifles. If you shoot the JSB 18.13gr pellets you owe it to yourself to give these a try.

Things I liked:

I liked the tin with it's screw on lid.

Things I would have changed:

They are out of round, If you measure the head then turn the pellet 180 and measure again you will get two different measurements. So if I could change anything I think I would like the to be round.

What others should know:

I have 4 differen hi quality pcp rifles and I can't get these pellets to shoot better than a shotgun pattern at 20 yards ( I believe this is because the pellets are out of round) for me it was a total waste of money, but now I know.

    Things I liked:

    As accurate as JSB and less than half of the cost

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    I shoot these out of a power tuned Hajimotos Gold Gauntlet 2. Literally 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards. Great pellet consistency. Minimal lead fouling. I think H&N both lubes their pellets, and uses an alloy that minimizes lead fouling. Popping these off at 990 +/- 10 fps at around 40 ft/lbs. I can get 5 tins of these for the price of 2 tins of JSB. Love em.

    Things I liked:

    Solid pellet, they shoot well in every PCP I own. They are my go-to pellet for backyard plinking. They are a great value for the money. Did I mention that they shoot straight at high velocity, a big plus in my book. Seems like ever gun that come out now days is trying to break a speed record. I have found very few dented skirts, and they are really consistent.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    I'd recommend giving them a try if what you're shooting is flying straight and you can't tune it out.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy, Price. Works amazing at 50 yards with my Hatsan Mod65 spring pistol rifle - sub 1" groups! Great at under 50 yards too. A bit too heavy for 80-100 yards. Great availability at a variety of online retailers.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. bigger can maybe.

    Things I liked:

    I liked everything about this pellet: weight, dome head, and accuracy. The price.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing to improve.

    What others should know:

    I purchased this pellet exclusively as one to be shot from my .22 caliber Umarex Gallant-2. Did not take long to zero in the diamond bullseye on a 2 inch stick-on target affixed on a box, 30 yards away.. Definitely qualifies as a go-to pellet. Three shot chronograph averaged 910 fps. Very good knockdown power, one shot kills out to 50+ yards, I recommend this pellet to be included in your ammo choices.out to 50+ yards. Get a chronograph.

    Weight, dome head, and shallow skirt cavity. Good value. Outstanding accuracy shot with my .22 caliber Umarex Gauntlet-2

    Things I would have changed:

    Absolutely nothing

    What others should know:

    I test shot this today in sunny 63 degree clear weather. I took 5 shots to zero this pellet at a 1 inch Birchwood Casey stick-on target. I shot the accuracy test with my .22 caliber Umarex Gauntlet-2. Five shots were chronographed at 931-934 fps. All 5 shots hit well inside the one inch perimeter of the target, with 3rd, 4th, and 5th shots hit hole on hole on hole dead center on the 1/4 inch diamond. I used my MTM Case-Gard Predator Shooting Rest. I recommend this pellet. Get a chronograph.

    Things I liked:

    Been shooting H&N Baracuda hunter 18gr for two years, 50 to 100 feet indoor range. Great! Now ourdoors at 150 to 200 feet, disappointing! Switched to Baracuda 18. WoW. Accuracy! Dont know Walther Reign twist rate but heavier pellets unstable after 75 feet. 18.13 grn and the round dome hard to beat. Round dome functions great in Reigns ruff interior magazine too.

    Things I liked:

    Awesome pellets that are the perfect weight and extremely accurate. They seem to be made with a tougher blend of lead that reduces the amount of flyers when using a rotary magazine, unlike JSB or FX pellets which are very soft and need to be handled with kid gloves.

    Things I would have changed:

    Bigger tins with a higher count

    What others should know:

    Very good choice for most guns
