5.0 5.0

By Matt from USA on 2012-02-20 23:21:47

Things I liked:

Lead free, but has some beef to it at 12.65 gr. Very uniform in weight, none were damaged or dented (tougher than lead). Blows right thru squirrel skulls. I prefer these in my gamo igt- complete penetration= 2 holes, higher velocity for better trajectory. My .22 gamo igt blasts these at over 840 fps avg for 19.9 lbs energy. Accurate lead free pellet.

Things I would have changed:

A bit expensive, put 250 in a tin instead of 200.

What others should know:

Good B.C. for 12.65 grains, I tested it at .0245. This is what lead free should be, I'd like to see more good designs and options.

    Things I liked:

    I like that these were very accurate and repeatable at the 20 yard range I have available in my yard. I like that they were very consistent in size and shape and easy magazine loading. I shot these from a Walther Reign .22 which is expected to launch an alloy pellet at 1070 fps. This rifle is not regulated. I used a chronograph to determine that at a pressure of 200 bar I got a 10 shot group averaging 1005 fps and at 20 meters I got a group size of .73". My next 10 shots started at 180 Bar and averaged 1066 fps and a group size of .8". My next 10 shots started at 160 Bar and averaged 1086 fps and a group size of .58" As my basic rifle marksmanship skills leave something to be desired, I figure that these groups could have been smaller. At the muzzle these three groups ranged from 29 to 33 FPE.

    Things I would have changed:

    A lower price would be good, but I have chickens and don't like shooting lead in the yard.

    What others should know:

    At 20 yards it is easy to engage black walnuts that have dropped from the tree and simply explode them with this lead free pellet and my Walther Reign UXT. It also does a great job of pulping tomatoes and strawberries.

    Things I liked:

    In lead free ammo, these get close to the perfect weight needed for the "Eco Tune" I use on my AirVenturi Avenger. They fly in the high 800's (fps) at 1400 lbs regulated (Eco Tune pressures).

    Things I would have changed:

    I'm willing to pay more for lead free, but the price in on the high side.

    What others should know:

    These fit the Avenger magazines just fine.

    Weight shape and accuracy when shot from my Diana Chaser C02

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing that's why I bought them.

    What others should know:

    They are more accurate then other brands and shoot faster in FPS in lower powered airguns.

    Things I liked:

    I am a wildlife removal expert and my company has multiple falconers in it. I love the fact that these are lead free because we eraticate pigeons for large companies and feed them to our hawks. Only thing is that they dont Mushroom out enough to dispatch the pigeon and they have too much penetration. They go right through the pigeon and hit objects behind them that cant Be hit.

    Things I would have changed:

    Need a good non lead pellet that mushrooms on impact.

    Things I liked:

    Very consistent - I have yet to find one that is deformed or over/under-sized. That consistency yields good groups.

    Things I would have changed:

    They're $0.10 each. At least they're not $0.20 each like some PBA pellets, but man, it stinks to be environmentally friendly.

    What others should know:

    Worth a go if you're shooting PBA. If you want to give PBA a try, these are a decent candidate.

    Things I liked:

    Lead-free, lighter pellet for flatter shooting

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    The only way you can tell if these pellets are gun compatible is to get a tin and shoot your "now using" pellet and compare the group size. It so happens my P-rod likes them pretty well. Will be testing them in the M-rod next.

    Though this pellet is expensive due to tin, quality and precision is outstanding for accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    accurate,consistent and very similar to lead pellets and it seems a little harder than lead for penetration.

    What others should know:

    If you have to be lead free or just into being green these are the way for accurate hunting pellets

    Things I liked:

    I wanted to try these out in my CO2 guns and they are fairly accurate. I also get pretty good accuracy in my Hatsan 150. They are also just as fast as Hobby pellets in that gun.

    Things I liked:

    I'm not usually a fan of non-lead pellets, but these are the best alloy pellets I've ever used. Very uniform. Shoots dime sized 6-shot groups in my .22 Benjamin Titan at 40 ft. Best penetration of any pellet I own whether through aluminum or plywood. In a different class than other non-lead pellets. H&N, PLEASE start making these in .25 caliber !!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    If your looking for an accurate alloy pellet, give these a try. They out shoot many of my lead pellets.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Uniform, clean and a flat shooting light pellet in my .22 FX Super Swift. My FX rifle prefers pellets in the 18 grain range, however these 12 grainers are outstanding in the same rifle. This is what lead free pellets should do!

    Things I would have changed:

    As others have mentioned, these are quite a bit pricier than any other pellet, hopefully H&N can eventually offer these in a greater count for the money.

    What others should know:

    Be aware of penetration through game such as squirrels. This is a flat trajectory pellet and can be used at beyond normal ranges for a lightweight pellet. Not sure of other .22s, but my FX loves them!

    Things I liked:

    Size and shape for 12 grains. Velocity & accuracy are great. Very clean and uniform pellets. High quality & best of all Lead Free!

    Things I would have changed:

    Pricey! (but you get what you pay for)

    What others should know:

    Wow, what a great pellet! I was worried it would be small due to the weight but it is basically the same size as the JSB Exacts 18 grain pellets and just as accurate out of my Benjamin steel eagle NP2 .22 but producing a higher velocity & bigger punch! This will make a great lead free hunting pellet.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    At almost 11 cents a round, they are not cheap, almost as much as 22LR (But Worth Every Penny).

    What others should know:

    Run through a Stoeger X10 and Benji Trail NP

    Things I liked:

    These pellets were clean, undamaged and very consistent in head diameter, skirt diameter, skirt length and weight. The tins have screw-on tops and are designed for stacking.

    Things I would have changed:

    These pellets are available in both 12.65 and 12.5 grains. My last order was filled with the 12.5 grain which did affect accuracy. Pyramyd Air should list these pellets as two different items according to their weight. Thanks

    What others should know:

    Concerning the price, tin is a commodity and its' value has been rising for more than a year. Its listed as 1 of the 5 metals most likely to disappear by 2055. Its Hard to believe but more than 600,000,000 lbs are mined each year and that is why we are paying "through the nose" as they say. The following test results are based on a group of 12 shots using my Air Arms TX200 MkIII. Numbers have been rounded and the average is based on the sum of the velocity of the total number of shots. Test No.:122714-BG, Location: Indoor, Temperature: 73, Humidity: 26%, Elevation: 148ft, Ballistic Coefficient: 0.0265, Head Diameter: 5.5, Skirt Diameter: 5.75, Pellet Length: 8.38, High Velocity (fps): 879, Low Velocity (fps): 869, *Average Velocity (fps): 874, Extreme Spread (fps): 10, Average Deviation (fps): 3, Standard Deviation (fps): 3, High Energy (ft-lbs): 22, Low Energy (ft-lbs): 21. I sighted in at 20yds using the NRA A-36 rifle target and all shots (24) were 10.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate in my Benjamin Varmint NP

    Things I would have changed:

    Not good for hunting squirrels. Crosman premier lead 14.3 grain kills them with one shot. These never do. Maybe not a fair comparison (heavy lead hollow point compared to light domed lead-free), but I would not recommend these for hunting.

    What others should know:

    Seem to be very nice, consistent quality for target shooting.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Vary accurate for a lead free pellet, or any pellet. Heavier than most lead free but still a little light.

    Things I would have changed:

    The price has gone up over 1/3 in a very short time. Lower the price.

    What others should know:

    If you have to hunt with a lead free pellet, I think this is the one. With my Gamo Whisper sighted in at 30 yards with lead pellets, these did the following; 10 yard, all low but within 1/2 inch. 20 yards, all high but within 1/2 inch. 30 yards, 1 on line, 2 above but within 1/2 inch. 40 yards, about 1 inch low. 50 yards, about 2 inches low with about 2 inch spread mostly vertical. My shooting eye is not the best so that could account for some variation and I am still learning how to shoot a springer. Pellet vit barrel great and very consistent. Since tin is harder than lead, there is no deformed pellets. Forget asking for these in a hollow point, tin is enough harder than lead that they will not expand anyway.
