Things I liked:

2 words: POWER AND PRECISION. The best pellet for hunting any kind of small game. Easily to shoot targets more than 40 yards away with extreme accuracy.

What others should know:

I live in Ecuador. I have a Diana RWS 350 Magnum and I use it for hunting the Torcaz pigeon. It is a kind of wild pigeon that lives in the mountains of the Andes. The Torcaz pigeon is very difficult to catch, it is easily frightened and to be able to hunt it requires shooting more than 40 yards away. Additionally, the Torcaz pigeon has abundant plumage so it requires a strong shot. The Baracuda Hunter Extreme are the best pellets I have managed to hunt the Torcaz pigeon. I have hunted a Torcaz pigeon with a shot at 60 yards, and it collapsed like a stone. THE BEST PELLETS FOR HUNTING.

    Things I liked:

    These Hunter Extremes are hole in hole accurate at 25 yards in my 1st Generation .22 Gamo Magnum, I have not been able to test them any further. At 18.52grains my rifle shoots these at an average of 800fps with 35 joules, these pellets pack a punch and devastating on anything it hits.

    Things I would have changed:

    Bigger tin

    What others should know:

    If you have a Magnum rifle that can push these pellets, you should definitely try these. But every rifle is different so you have to experiment with different pellets to find the right type and weight your rifle likes!!

    Things I liked:

    The hollow point head shaped like a phillips head. The pellet weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Absolutely nothing. It’s shootability for accuracy. The pellet count could be increased at least 300, but it’s not a deal breaker for me..

    What others should know:

    I shot this pellet for accuracy, changing from the 15.89 grain H&N Baracuda 15, as my go-to pellet. I changed over to this pellet due to me having close to a thousand rounds of these, more than any of my 30 tins of various.22 caliber pellets. It took me 5 shots to put these pellets, hole on hole, on a 2 inch Birchwood Casey affixed to a box, 85 feet away, point of impact on point of aim. I do all pellets like that. I Chronograph 3 shots at: 939, 927, and 931 f.p.s., averaging 932.3 fps. With 35.75 ft lbs of energy. These were shot with my .22 caliber Umarex Gauntlet-2. I recommend this pellet. After it’s said and done, whenever it will be time for me to restock, I will buy these. Get a chronograph. Woodys World.

    Things I liked:

    I really love the look of these pellets. Unfortunately my Kral np-03 cannot shoot them. My target is 28 yds away, I have gone through almost the entire tin and I cannot get on target with these. They sound like they would hit incredibly hard as I can hear ricochets like old west TV shows.

    Things I would have changed:

    N/A

    What others should know:

    If anyone with a .22 kral np-03 shoots these well, please let me know the distance and power level you use.

    Things I liked:

    These are the most effective hunting pellets I have used and I have experimented with most all the better quality 22 cal hunting pellets. Not quite as accurate as a match target pellet, but within 3/8 inch at 15 yards. Squirrels have overtaken our neighborhood and damaged my house and vehicles. These pellets create exit wounds that frequently have entrails hanging out of them as much as 2 to 3 inches. I have pinned squirrels to trees and had to pulled their entrails loose from the tree. No other pellet that I have used even comes close to the devastating damage of these. I could not understand some of the other reviewers writing about them not being as accurate as some other pellet. These are not match grade target pellets. They are simply the most effective hunting pellet I have ever used and I have shot so many squirrels over the past 11 years that I am not going to mention the number here. Its a very high number.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing except maybe make them cheaper. I have used the heaviest 28 grain 22 caliber pellets, the lightest pellets, hollow points, round nose, flat nose. Nothing humanely kills squirrels as effectively as these. Most pellets just punch clean holes through them. These snag meat on their way through and have noticeably better shock and stopping capability.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    I try to not leave bad reviews without good reason. The reason is that these do not shoot well at all through my Ruger Targis Hunter Max .22 cal. When I shot the first few, they hit about 18" lower (at 20-25 yards) than the H&N FTT that I had been shooting. I have shot enough to know that every pellet will shoot differently through almost every air rifle. However, I ran out of adjustment on the scope and my first thought was that the scope had been damaged. So, I tried two other scopes (one brand new) and they too could not be adjusted enough (to try and raise the impact point). I pondered a bent barrel but, I really doubted that. Then it hit me to go back to the FTT and within a few rounds and adjustments, I was back shooting tight groups on target. I think it just comes down to that this pellet is not good for my Targis Hunter Max .22 cal. Apparently, it is good in many other rifles. I will try a sample pack to see if I can find another hunting pellet that will work.

    Things I liked:

    Prompt deliver, nice packaging. I haven't had a chance to shoot them yet so it is hard for me to review. It all depends on how a particular rifle likes a pellet so we will see. I looked through the pellets and saw no damaged or bent skirts.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    I would buy them to try in your gun. Some guns shoot them well, some don't. If they are accurate for me I will test how well they expand. I plan to hunt squirrels with them if they shoot well in my gun.
