    Things I liked:

    I got a couple extra in each can. They probably use a scale in automation to fill the cans. These and the rabbit Magnum all have a date code of 34346.

    Things I would have changed:

    Well they didn't quite weigh 18.13. I measured them in groups of 10 and the average 17.85. that's probably why there's an extra 10 or so in the can. There's probably nothing that they would change and maybe a different lot on a different day might be a little different and only time will tell.

    What others should know:

    I love the way they put the amount of energy that you need as a minimum for these to work properly. That is listed in joules and is 16 so in ft/lbs that's @ 12. So they really only have to go about 600 ft per second at a minimum. If you can adjust your power and keep them between 825 and 880 ft per second you should have very very accurate shots.28 to 30 foot pounds is more than enough for rabbits and squirrels. I haven't been out to the range yet but I have seen some YouTube videos that they're shooting at 100 yards but for ethical hunting I think 50 or 60 yards should be just fine.

    Things I liked:

    More consistent weight then other big names. Weighed contents of entire tins and found variance of one grain up or down from stated weight. Almost 75% of the pellets in tin were stated weight. Just as accurate too, checked at 100 yards and gave the same under inch groups.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    I put a few drops of silicone lube in container and gently rotated to lube pellets.

    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.

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    These pellets shoot just a accurately out of my Avenger .22 as the 18.13 gr. JSB pellets. I like the screw-on lids.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have tins of 500 each with screw -on lids.

    What others should know:

    Since the lead alloy is different the the JSB pellets a few shots will need to be fired to get the accuracy to settle in before evaluating the H&N pellets accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    larger amount of pellets per tin.

    What others should know:

    I'am using these pellets in my Benjamin Akela. Shooting at 30 yd targets 5shot ragged hole, poi is about 3/4 in higher then when shooting the JSB EXACT jumbo heavy diabolo 18,13gr. The H&N pellets seem to have less coating, less mess on fingers when loading mags. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad thing. Hope this helps.

    Things I liked:

    The JSB pellets that shoot best in my rifle have been back ordered for months so I gave these a try. I found they shoot almost as well and cost a bit less. The tins have a screw on lid.

    Things I would have changed:

    Some of the pellet skirts were not round. It would be better if they would put a foam pad on the top and the bottom of the tins.

    What others should know:

    These are worth a try.

    Shape and weight the same as JSB 18gr just a little harder alloy but my RAW HMx LRT has the same accuracy and POI with these.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not anything I can think of.

    These 18gr. pellets are very accurate out of my FX Maverick, they group .75 in. @ 75yds. This makes them from now on my go to pellet! I will be buying more.

    Need to put more pellets in the tins (250) - (500) would be GREAT.

    Things I liked:

    I have tried different makes and weights of pellets in my airventure Avenger .22 cal. and they all shot well but the H&N 18.13 shot the best. the gun loved them. 10 shots at 20 yards at rest, a hole in a hole The best pellet I have tried.

    Things I liked:

    This pellet is very accurate in my 22 flash. The price point cant be beat. People that dont know about these shoot jsb

    Things I would have changed:

    Make it pointed like the 21 grain but beef them up to 24 or so grain. Then they would not be the great pellet that they are.

    What others should know:

    These 18 are slightly more accurate in my 22 flash, than the 21 grain barracudas. I will continue hunt with the 21 grains for the extra thump.

    Things I liked:

    I purchase these in the absence of other brands of 18.13 gr pellets. My stocks were dipping low. I have been a fan of other H&N rounds for quite some time. These did not disappoint. My Dreamlite compact easily achieved 1 MOA accuracy at 50 yards. My Origin also likes them. Not quite as tight there, 2 MOA at 50 yards. Good results. Pellets are clean, uniform in both weight and shape. Flyers? Not many. Good job H&N. Keep the presses running.

    Things I would have changed:

    500 count tins please. At least 250.

    What others should know:

    Thanks to PA for their packaging. You can depend on your pellets showing up in top shape.

    Things I liked:

    At first glance, I was a little disappointed, the Barracuda 18 did not come with the usual innovative or unique design features that I have come to expect with H&N Barracuda Match and Field Target Trophy. I didn't even find the same uniformity as I have with JSB Diablo. BUT, saying all of this, what I did find was accuracy and performance that has so far exceeded the rest of the pack in comparison. The pellet also appears to be favored by all of my .22 caliber airguns as well, and left an easy and favorable experience for loading. My guns liked this round a lot, and in the end, it is the gun's opinion that counts.

    Things I would have changed:

    I was expecting a similar rear port baffling like you see on the Barracuda Match, and I was disappointed when one was not there. Also, the depth of the rear port is not very deep, which is something I towards in a high quality round. Lastly, I wish they included a thin piece of foam under the lid, like you find in other brands of pellets. This piece of foam helps to prevent the soft lead of the pellet from getting smashed when closing the lid.

    What others should know:

    You really can't beat the performance received for the price.
