Things I liked:

Nice heavy pellet. Used in sig mpx was all around good but not enough power to be beneficial. I feel due to weight it would be better in a slightly higher power gun. Was accurate for me just did not carry the fps to be effective with the weight

Things I would have changed:

Nothing

Things I liked:

I bought these just to test them out. So far, I can say they are a bit heavy for my match guns. My R1 likes them "ok" but nothing spectacular. They do work out of my HW55.

Things I would have changed:

I could not get good consistent expansion. They might want to piddle with the front design to get it to open up with a slower velocity.

What others should know:

So far none of my rifles just loves these. They don't do badly but not the best accuracy I want. Only my R1 can open up the hollowpoint consistently.

    Things I liked:

    Very constant accuracy and weight. It shoots very well out of my Gamo hornet air rifle. Good accuracy up to 60 feet haven’t shot up beyond that point they open up and mushroom very nicely. I’ve killed four squirrels with it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would change nuthing maby little cheeper

    What others should know:

    Theses are laser accurate out of my gamma hornet I’m shooting them at speeds around 800 P about 22 or 23 foot pounds. I’m not real sure on the foot pounds but they are amazing they work well they’re tag drivers their squirrel killers.

    Things I liked:

    In my Diana 350, by far its best pellet and have tried countless others. Good weight which is mandatory for a .177 pellet in a Diana 350. I have shot numerous dime sized groups at 40 yards with this gun/pellet combo.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    My particular 350 gets 970 fps and 20 fpe with this pellet, tremendous. But beware the one drawback to the Hunter Extreme is its ballistic coefficient isn't great as I've shot over the chronograph at range. Even with the 20 fpe start I never take shots on small game over 45/50 yards.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent accuracy and impressive expansion out of an RWS Diana 460 Magnum. I gel block tested six of the highest rated hollow points I could find, and coming out of that rifle these were the most impressive by far. Excellent expansion and a gnarly wound channel every shot. They also fly as straight as anything I've found.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    Remember, your mileage my vary as certain guns like certain ammo, but I can guarantee you that you'll be hard pressed to find a better match for a Diana 460 Magnum. Out of that rifle, these will stop a squirrel like a .22LR.

    Things I liked:

    1. Accuracy: With other pellets my Ruger/Umarex springer will hold the 10 ring of a 50ft timed/rapid fire pistol target at 50 feet. Not great but OK. These pellets will stay within the X-ring and shoot a ragged hole you can cover with a shirt button. They shoot like H&N match pellets which is darn good. 2. Knockdown: Thanks to their extra weight and meplat design a critter you shoot doesn't run away. It stays where it is because it's dead.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I can think of.

    Things I liked:

    I shoot a springer with open sights and couldn't get crosman premier piranha 10.5 gr pellets to group. I replaced the trigger spring with a home made bearing and was able to get most pellets in a 3" circle at 25 yrds. I tried diabolo exact 8.44 and sprayed them around the 3" target and was about to give up on my springer but the H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme 9.57 gr hollowpoint pellets were hitting the same hole sighting them in and at 25 yrds I get half inch groups shooting with shooting sticks. I'm still amazed

    Things I liked:

    Very consistent and accurate. I can reliably group in a dime sized group at 20 yards (see photo)

    What others should know:

    I used these in a Benjamin Armada pumped to 2500 PSI and these pellets group very consistently at that pressure. These will be my standard pellet from now on.

    I use these in my Benjamin Marauder Field and Target with .177 Lothar-Walther barrel. They shoot very accurately. However, the best part is that they actually function as claimed. I have fired them into bar soap, apples and oranges at 865 fps, and they expand wonderfully. They literally blow the fruit into pieces. I will definitely use them for pest elimination. These are a great pellet. Buy with confidence.
