Things I liked:

In the past 3 years since I started hunting small game with a PCP. I have taken approximately 90 to 100 fox squirrels. I have used the .22 caliber H&N Baracuda Hunter exclusively. All squirrels were taken with 1 shot with a Hatsan AT44-10QE. Ranges were between 20 and 50 yards. This pellet works as well as any .22 rimfire for heavy fox squirrels. Most were taken with head shots but maybe a quarter were also chest shots and those were just as deadly. No squirrel ran after hitting the ground. This is a super accurate pellet in my gun and devastating on small game!

Things I would have changed:

Nothing

What others should know:

If your gun will shoot these pellets accurately I would highly recommend them for hunting.

    extra weight for better knock down. Very good accuracy in my Walther springer air rifles. Very clean and well made.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would not change anything

    What others should know:

    These shoot very well if you have a good german springer rifle. Seat a bit more snug in the breach and really have a good hard hit on targets.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy is top of the list. These actually group very well and expand quite nicely. They actually can be shot at a higher speed than crow magnums and will break into two separate pieces in a ballistic gel test

    Things I would have changed:

    As per usual More for less. I used to buy 22 long rifles for less money than pellets cost nowadays. Keep them in stock.

    What others should know:

    These are pretty clean and don't have a lot of flashing in the bottom of the tin. I like to weigh my pellets if I'm going to shoot targets because there are some times a large difference in weight. These are actually not bad in that regard.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent groups at 25 to 100 yrds in my FX Maverick Sniper. container tops screw on and are secure... no spills. I think Im getting tighter groups with these then the Barracuda Match. Price is competitive in the market.

    Things I would have changed:

    fair amount of dust in the container

    Things I liked:

    I have my slightly modified Hatsan Flash Pup S (eliminated QE system and added a Donny FL Tanto and custom carbon fiber shroud) tuned to shoot these at 900 fps. With these pellets the gun will shoot 5 shot 1/2" groups at 50 yards. Larger 20 shot groups still come in under an inch. These pellets also offer provide consistent terminal ballistics on European starlings out to 65 yards. Squirrels are no problem out to 45(my personal distance limit on them) and English sparrows, well they have no chance at any distance. These pellets also provide a nice loud audible pop on impact.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to see larger tins and/or a cheaper price. The PA 4 for 3 deal helps but I shoot a lot of these. It is my main pellet.

    What others should know:

    I have experienced the best results in my gun at under 920 fps. The only pellet my gun shoots more accurately is the 21 grain Barracuda Match in 5.52 headsize and those are nearly lasers at 50!

    This pellet performs in my Benjamin and Air Arms PCP air rifles better than the H6N standard pellet.

    What others should know:

    This pellet is not as accurate as the Air Arms pellets. I am comparing pellet groupings at 67 yards for 10 shots. This may be a very good hunting round but I generally just target shoot.

    Things I liked:

    These pellets are very accurate, and hit hard. I shot two tins of these today, and I didn't find a single bad pellet.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish I would have tried these earlier.

    What others should know:

    I shoot these out of a .22 caliber Ruger Air Magnum, with a Leapers 3-12x44 etched reticle scope. I mostly shoot from a bench.. These are now my favorite pellet. I thought the Baracuda Hunter Extreme pellets were the best, but I was wrong, my rifle absolutely loves these. If you own a Ruger Air Magnum, you should try these pellets. With my rifle, at 25 yard they punch through 1/2 pine boards with ease. They fit nicely in the barrel, and are relatively clean pellets. They are so fun to shoot, with very few fliers. I shot 400 of these pellets today, and I honestly feel every miss was my fault, not the fault of the pellets

    Things I liked:

    I had been shooting Baracuda Match pellets in my 22 cal. Diana Chaser CO2 pistol. Performance on ground squirrels was good. I tried the Baracuda Hunter and find these to be as accurate as the Match but much more lethal. When using the match pellets, hit squirrels would fall over and then run or crawl away to die unless my shot was to the head. With the Hunter the percentage of 1 shot kills was much higher. Even if the squirrel was able to get under the leaves before I could get to it there was a clear blood trail.

    Things I would have changed:

    I'm not smart enough to know what to change.

    What others should know:

    Best pellets I've found so far.

    Excellent looking pellets, very uniform, skirts are perfect, all typical of my experience with H&N. Unfortunately my Diana 48 does not like them. My gun likes a 5.54 pellet

    Things I would have changed:

    A variety of head sizes.

    What others should know:

    I run my pellets through a Pellet Gage. The PG saves a lot of frustration and gives confidence in a hunting situation that the pellet will go as precisely as possible.
