    Things I liked:

    Clean and precisely made pellets by H&N. Uniform, almost no debris in the tins. The .177 seems to perform like its bigger sibling the Hammer in .22.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not at thing. The pellet flies true and is extremely consistent in my springers on my 10 M basement range.

    What others should know:

    A nice compromise between a wadcutter and a dome. It is, of course, a dome pellet, but I say, "compromise" as its dome is a very flattened arc. That helps, in particular, in loading the underlever Diana 430L through the loading port.

    Things I liked:

    The usual H&N product: clean, uniform, precisely made. The round nose helps feeding it into the breech in my underlever Diana 430L; a particularly difficult thing to do because of the nature of the breech on this rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing. I have been using the .22 edition of this pellet for some time and they are quite precise and fly true.

    What others should know:

    A good general use pellet that fares well in target use.

    What others should know:

    Very pleased with this ammo. Bought four tins (2000 rounds) without testing first and gamble paid off. Shoots very well with the Beeman P1 and the Beeman P17. When I finally get through the stockpile of everything else I have including this purchase I will be buying this exclusively as long as it’s available.

    What others should know:

    I recently purchased these in .177 and .22. The quality appears to be top shelf. I have not had much chance to shoot them as of yet, but from what I have seen so far they are very accurate at closer ranges.

    Things I liked:

    Cheap but good. Especially for under 10 meter pistols.

    Things I would have changed:

    Still doesn't shoot as consistently as high end pellets, but for that, you get what yo pay for.

    What others should know:

    Pyramid packaging is the best! I order pellets from Midway and Amazon from time to time, but always arrived banged up (MIdway probably the worst). Pyramid air understands the need of airgunners, that pellet even in tins need to be handled with care. Now I know I can order my next high end pellet batch from Pyramid without worries.

    Things I liked:

    Pellet seems clean and well made.

    Things I would have changed:

    So far it hasn't proved to be very accurate in any of my air rifles. It's a good plinker, but can't recommend it for outstanding accuracy. Good enough for tin cans up to 20yds.

    Rating 3.03.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Great price. Accuracy is generally decent in spring pistols, except for my Diana LP8 which does not like these.

    Things I would have changed:

    The pellets I received were somewhat oxidized, and sticky-greasy with lube. The skirts were unevenly ribbed as well, with areas around the circumference that had clear "ribbed" lines and others that lacked ribbing, as if the pellet did not fully fill the mold when cast.

    What others should know:

    If these become cleaner and more visibly consistent in shape in further production runs, what is now a good pellet will most likely become a great one, and a great value from H&N. Shooting JSB's all the time gets expensive. :)

    Things I liked:

    No bent skirts, accurate out of my .177 rifles (tyrant xgp, gamo outback maxxim). Hard hitters. 1/2 groups at 15 yards with open sights.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    These really are hammers. Chest shots on pigeons at 15-20yards drops em, no fluttering away, just drop. I prefer these to cphp's in .177 for around the same price.

    Things I liked:

    NIce quality pellet; clean, accurate, consistent out of the tin.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I can think of. Maybe a screw-on top for the container? Only a matter of time for me to be picking up a few hundred pellets off the floor in the garage....

    What others should know:

    These are round nose, not as round as some others, but not flat wad cutters. They have good weight, shoot well. I like them a lot, and you will too. They are for sport shooters, not guys who measure and weigh their pellets and who think that makes a big difference. Let me put it another way; if you are shooting $2,000 guns, these might not be for you. I'm shooting $100 pistols and they work just great.

    Things I liked:

    Why buy cheap, dirty pellets when you can get these quality well made pellets at a bargain price! I have gone the cheap route before and hesitated to buy these simply because of the low price point. However, these are not your typical inexpensive pellets. I use them in my Walther P-99 pellet pistol and it stacks them consistently into nice tight groups even shooting from standing free-handed. These are every bit as good as any of the expensive quality pellets.

    What others should know:

    The nose is a very low profile dome similar to the RWS Super Dome. The fit in the cylinders of the Walther P-99 is firm but not too tight. I have had absolutely no pellet creep with these. I also have not encountered any dirty, misformed or perceptible difference in head or skirt size. They all fit the chambers the same. I am really impressed with this product and will buy them as long as they continue to be of this quality. They really are the best value in a pellet I have ever encountered.

    Things I liked:

    Great! Finally got after a back order wait. They are similar to the discontinued "Beeman Laser" .177's of years ago. Fit perfect in Crosman 1077 circular clip. also the T-4.Have'nt had time to test yet. All seem to be excellent production.

    Things I would have changed:

    What others should know:

    H & N pellets are the best . I tested the bigger brother pellet of The "Hammers" -.22 and it is awesome out of the 2240 and 2210.
