Things I liked:

I've extensively tested this pellet externally and terminally. I have concluded that this is the ultimate hollow point pellet. This pellet has demonstrated incredible terminal performance and shock that must be seen to be believed. An impact velocity of 1100 [ft/s^{-1}] into a ballistics gelatin medium with a density of 0.035 [pounds/(inches^{3})^{-1}] will yield a penetration of 2.5" and a final expansion diameter of 0.366" (calculated maximum expansion diameter of 0.568"). Extrapolated from the kinetic energy of this pellet traveling at 1100 [ft/s^{-1}] with a penetration of 2.5", the pellet will yield a shock coefficient of 20.4 [(foot-pounds)-inch^{-1}] relative to the density of the ballistics gelatin medium. This pellet also poses great quality, the actual average weight is 18.1 grains +/- 0.1 grains and the average length is 0.305" +/- 0.001", you cannot complain about that consistency folks!

Things I would have changed:

I absolutely love the terminal performance of this pellet, but the worst thing about it is the external performance. The ballistic coefficient is absolutely horrible, using chronographs I calculated the ballistic coefficient to be 0.018 relative to the G1 drag function, for comparison I calculated the ballistic coefficient of the .22 caliber 16 grain Predator Polymag to be 0.052 relative to the G1 drag function. I would redesign the whole entire pellet, changing the weight mostly, to increase the ballistic coefficient, yet still incorporate the lovely deep expansion cup that makes this pellet so great and unique.

What others should know:

I would recommend this pellet for use at only short distances due to it's low ballistic coefficient. Only use in applications where deep penetration isn't a concern, this pellet will transfer it's kinetic energy very quickly, more quickly than the majority of the pellets out there, you will be hard pressed to find a pellet that can out perform it in shock factor. Accuracy was good in my Condor, about 1" at 25 yards, could be better, could be worse. It's not much of a concern anyhow because I use them for close range anyhow. Buy a tin and see what happens, most likely you'll like the results!

By Andrew P from USA on 2012-02-07 08:21:47

Things I liked:

These thing are terrible with my Ben Discovery. At 30 yards, 25 shots look like someone hit the target with a shotgun! No two shots hit the same area of the target.

Things I would have changed:

Wouldn't have bought them.

What others should know:

These are fine out to 10 yards as long as it is not a windy day. Guess they are called crow mags cause that is the smallest animal you are likely to be able to hit at 10 yards with these things.

    Things I liked:

    Fast expansion. Use it for birds and small game. I use it on rats. I shoot the HN hunter extreme for larger game, these are almost the same weight and don't require a different scope setting. Large round nose is like a wad cutter, leaves great holes on a target and really rings a steel target. To top it off, it's very inexpensive.

    Things I would have changed:

    Larger tins

    What others should know:

    Buy 3 get one Free from Pyramydair makes these pellets price competitive with the cheapest on the market. But you get H&N quality and Pyramydair packing and shipping.

    Things I liked:

    They were free because I bought something else. I was just curious and wanted to check them out so I got the standard h&n Hunter.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's hard to say but it would be nice if you could actually hit something past 20 yards. If they were anything like the hunters then there would be little to change.

    What others should know:

    There's a large hollow up front and it's also very wide. I think it's like too wide and makes these things want to go sideways. At close ranges they're devastating.

    pellet does major damage in 177, 22 and 25

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing, unless they maybe put 250 per tin

    What others should know:

    I zero all of my guns @ 50 yrds, and at least 900-975 FPS. At that distance and speed these pellets shoot very good. Try to do head shots, because body/chest shots don't leave much meat on birds, and does major internal damage on squirrels and rabbits. Still a good shooting pellet in (MY GUNS) can't say if other guns shoot them well but my pcp's do.

    Things I liked:

    I own 20 various air rifles and these are always my #1 starting point pellets. I've yet to find a rifle in .177, .22, or .25 caliber that these don't shoot well in. They're not always the MOST accurate pellets in some rifles but they're always at least near the most accurate in every rifle I own whether break barrel or PCP. They're also incredibly lethal on small game that I have taken with them from squirrels up to woodchucks. One shot instant dispatches if I do my part and textbook mushrooms from all recovered pellets.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't change anything except for the fact that I have a few rifles with rotary magazines that these are just a tad too long to work/feed correctly. In that case I switch over to the Barracuda Hunter pellets which are very similar but a tad shorter and very similar to these Crow Magnum pellets.

    What others should know:

    Only that if you have a rifle that uses a rotary magazine these my not function properly without "hanging up" in the magazine.

    Things I liked:

    I have 4 spring piston air rifles. All prefer crow mags. I initially was disappointed in accuracy on first use in all guns...til after break in and barrel leading/ polishing. Only Terminators can match c.m. at 50 and under yards.NOW!!. SUPERIOR KNOCKDOWN!! The broad surface imparts incomparable tissue damage..rips..not slips through. My lots seem HARDER than previous tins. I can now rely on skull/ hard-target penetration...along with accuracy and kinetic energy DELIVERY...even on pass- thru. I have 20 different weights and brands. Name one. I got it. Up to 33.9 gr. Slugs too. Crow mag is tops...ALL AROUND. Like 150 gr. 30-06 centerfire.

    Things I would have changed:

    At 28.9 ftlbs in my Beeman mach 12.5. .22 it is optimal. For 50 ftlb. Or so pcp...a 33.0 gr should satisfy all midrange needs. So ...a heavier version for pcp guns. Terminator is already lighter version.

    What others should know:

    If your gun can make 17 plus foot pounds...do whatever it takes to make it shoot these accurate. All air rifles "icepick" prey due to low hydrostatic shock values..hence most pellets at high velocity pass thru icepick-like..energy-dumping in the air in cases of thinner-skinned . If you get a pass thru with these..its a " cookie-cutter " wound...but a little rough on the exit side. I hunt. Humane as possible. This helps.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate in my Benjamin 392PA at different power levels. Hard-hitting on small to medium sized rodents. No damaged pellets in the tins and all very uniform in shape, size and construction. I just bought 1,000 pellets for just over $30 (including shipping) so the price isn't too bad either.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the walls of the hollow points thinner, or notched for better expansion at lower feet-per-second or lower foot-pounds of energy airguns.

    What others should know:

    Don't expect huge expansion, unless you're shooting a high-energy airgun. Even so, with the weight, they hit like a freight train.

    Things I liked:

    My last 3 tins are harder alloy...and the nose-cup is shallower. Maybe a die thing? It's AN IMPROVEMENT IN MY GUNS!!! Penetration is better on hard targets(bones/skulls). Hard lead grip barrel grooves better..more accurate by 10-15yds. than 2 old(2018) tins I have! Or maybe THEY are different?

    Things I would have changed:

    The greater range and accuracy I thought it lacked ..It HAS!!! So.....NOTHING CHANGE.

    What others should know:

    3 springers ( 17ftlb, 21ftlb., 27ftlb.) are max effective with these. Most humane load.Accurate.Powerful. The weight gives good energy retention at 17 plus ftlbs down range to 100 yds plus.

    Things I liked:

    Things I would have changed:

    make them more accurate in wider array of guns. I would like to be able to shoot them at least 35 yards and hold under an inch. They are closer to 2 inches at 23 yards. Not usable accuracy for me.

    What others should know:

    Its the peels and not the gun. My rifle will shoot five 18.13 grain JSBs in a hold the diameter of a pencil eraser eraser at 23 yards. To bad I really like these pellets! They are nasty on small game! Ive knocked squirrels and rabbits sideways with them when they connect. They make really big holes in them was well. Just not accurate in either of my springers for usable hunting past 10 yards. Shame, its a great hunting pellet if shot tighter.
