Things I liked:

Accurate long range pellet. Excellent for hunting.

Things I would have changed:

The tin needs a screw lid to secure it from accidental spills.

What others should know:

You'll need some way of carrying pellets, as the press fit lid is unworkable on the tin. This is probably the most accurate pellet for my Sheridan Blue Streak rifle. However, I have not tried the JSB Exact pellets in .20 cal yet. In .25 cal the JSB Exact King is the closest competitor to the H&N Baracuda as far as accuracy goes. The .20 Baracuda will be replacing the 5mm Sheridan cylindrical pellet as my standard hunting pellet.

Things I liked:

I don't like it. You're very limited on ammunition for 20 caliber which is idiotic a 20 caliber should have the same ammo the 177 has.

Things I would have changed:

Better ammo choices and more ammo choices for 20 caliber

What others should know:

Stand for your rights to hunt

    Things I liked:

    They are clearly a well made product...

    Things I would have changed:

    ... but the head size is so large that they have to be heavily forced into the barrel of my R9. By comparison, H&N's own FTT's slip in beautifully. Its a head scratcher.

    What others should know:

    I gave my ratings based on my personal experience with only one rifle. These pellets may be great in someone else's, but I don't know why H&N would make them so large and I'd expect the same problem in most guns. Which makes these pellets very expensive plinker. Another lot may be different, but that would mean H&N isn't controlling their product very well, and I doubt that.

    Things I would have changed:

    All good, but larger(500) tin size would be nice

    What others should know:

    These worked great for me in a Sheridan Model C, if you have not tried these, wound be a good idea to check them out.

    Things I liked:

    Good screw cap tins.

    Things I would have changed:

    These pellets weighed between 13.3 and 13.8 grains which is not what I would have expected from an H&N product. Also, the skirt diameter varied between .203 and .207. They shot poorly in my Sheridan.

    What others should know:

    Try one tin of pellets first to see how they shoot in your gun before buying four tins of them like I did with these!!!

    Things I liked:

    The HW80 loves these as much as the JSB in similar weight. I don't have a chrony, but you can hear the transmission of energy at 40 yards on steel. It's very substantial. Probably my fastest Weihrauch of all. Accurate and reliable.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    .20 is a fun caliber in Weihrauch. Worth a dabble. I love it.

    Things I liked:

    HW80 says, "heck yeah, get in my belly." Holes in holes, cloverleafs, and good fit to bore. Equally good as the JSB in .20 of nearly the same weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. H&N and JSB are my favorites. I pay for excellent pellets for my special air rifles.

    What others should know:

    Accurate in magnum-class air rifles. They don't fly off on you. They stick good at distances of 40-80 yards. I love 'em. : ) happy camper face.

    Things I liked:

    The best .20 I've found for my Beeman R9. Accurate and hard-hitting. Good, snug fit in the breech without deforming the pellet.

    Like the others have said, a 500 round tin would be nice.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, in this pellet, but maybe H&N can diverse into more weight/grains?

    What others should know:

    There are a few more .20 cal pellet choices on the Internet, if you own a .20 cal gun, find the most accurate pellet for it!!

    Things I liked:

    When shooting .20 cal. pellets the choice is very limited. Feel blessed that H&N decided to make the .20 cal. pellets. They have a very good reputation and they shoot very well in my Airforce Condor SS. Like the fact that they are Round Nose that seems to be the best all around design accrete hard hitting. I use these for pest most of witch are 18 yds. But the 60 yd pest need controlled too and they do the job. Like the over all shape and long skirts. Not much sense of shooting if you can't hit what you are shooting at and I can with H&N

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much, good quality shoots well no real problems glad to have them in the system. Price point compared to other offers.

    What others should know:

    Shot Benjamins in a Blue Streak for years they did a good job. The 1970 rifle got tired and my "Fix" turned out to be a disaster not a fix RIP Blue Streak. Changed to the PCP Airforce Condor SS .20 Cal. with plans to use the Benjamins but they were to loose and would fall out. Hitting a soft ball at 20 yds proved to be on the good side. Called around for help, advice given H&N or JSB both shoot very well in the Airforce. Benjamins should do well in their rifle but not in Airforce. H&N is a excellent choice

    Things I liked:

    This H-N .20 cal. is working just fine for me at a cost I can afford. I am not using this to hunt so I can't rate it for that purpose. Pyramid has made it even more affordable to enjoy with the buy 3 get 1 . I am glad that this caliber is still available albeit from a European maker .

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see a bulk package offered , from any supplier. I prefer to buy American when-where I can but , price , price , price.

    What others should know:

    I have ordered several times from Pyramid and the shipping-packaging has been AAA+. And the delivery time is exactly as they state it will be . I am very satisfied .

    Things I liked:

    These pellets really engage the rifling. Front and back of pellet. They are for an R9, and I find them the most accurate and hard hitting.

    Things I would have changed:

    Of course these are H&N, so they are pricey. So maybe 300 for the same price? I honestly have had good results with JSB in other calibers, and their .20 is a better deal, so maybe I try them. Otherwise, the Baracudas are highly reliable.

    What others should know:

    Comparing these to Gamo pellets is a great contrast. I think Gamo has some decent deals with their rifles, but if they do not clear up there quality control on pellets, they should stop making them. Whereas the Baracudas make full use of the rifling, the Gamo Pro Magnums do not. Short skirts send the Pro Mags all over the place. Was excited about the Pro Mags and gave good review, since they are like lead Raptors, but later had to amend it because of the too frequent wild shots. The econo Excite line is better than Gamo pellets! Excite Hammers rock! These Baracudas do well in my R9 with a peep sight: tight groups and crushing power that shoots through thick soup cans. One shot one kill on the pests I hunt.

    Things I liked:

    Uniform, good looking pellet. Ten shots at 20 yards; 3 shots touching in the "10" ring, 4 shots in the "9" ring with 1 pair high touching, 1 pair low center-left cutting "8" ring line touching. Last 3 shots spread low center-left in "7/6" ring. While a overall 2+ inch group, some acceptable grouping seen. Not the pattern I expect in a go to pellet.

    Things I would have changed:

    All pellets should have 500 count tin an option.

    What others should know:

    Shots taken slowly from bench rest.

    What others should know:

    If You are shooting Benjamin right now, you don't know what YOU are MISSING !! Missing as in Shot accuracy !! Will Never Go Back to Benjamin !

    Things I liked:

    So much smaller groups then the Benjamin Pellets. These are a diablo, with a waist. The Benjamin do not, and have a grouping that is twice as big. Get more accuracy, buy these H&N .20 Caliber pellets. You will be glad you did. I will not get the Benjamin anymore. I shoot an old Sheridan Silver Streak, at 50 Yards. The Original Sheridan pellets had no diablo waist, and were terrible for accuracy. That is why Sheridan came out with the red box diablo waist pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    Even more uniformity.

    What others should know:

    These are SO MUCH BETTER then the Benjamin .20 Caliber. Try them, You will not go back to Benjamin, I guarantee !!
