Things I liked:

I use these pellets pretty much exclusively. My break barrel gun loves them and I have my scope set perfectly. I regularly take squirrels at up to 45-50 yards. No exaggeration . I know these are rated for 30yards but the heavier 10.06grain weight allows it to go even farther with precision if.you practice a bit. Uniform shape , as with any pellet you may come across a misshapen one or two at random but for the most part you get to shoot every pellet in the tin no problems or factory errors.

Things I would have changed:

They are a bit pricey for what they are. But I guess if you figure in : they are made in Germany and thus have to be imported, they have brass metal in them. And they are meticulously made in a uniform consistency. Very well made pellets. I can't even really write a bad section about them.

What others should know:

When I first got these they were a bit inconsistent as far.as shot groupings they produced. But after properly zeroing my scope to these particular pellets with sighting targets I can now make dime sized groups at 45-50yards (again no exaggeration I know these are rated for less but they can do much better than advertised. Taking small game should be no problem if that is your goal. And targets should reflect great accuracy with any gun that "prefers these pellets" (any avid air gunner knows certain guns like certain pellets they are all different) Great purchase. The tin is a little misleading as they have "safety inserts" But there are indeed the advertised number of pellets in the tin

Things I liked:

Has lots of punch when it hits the target. Seem a bit more accurate than the ones I was using. Packaging is excellent.

Things I would have changed:

I am using these in my favorite air gun this month, a Sig Sauer P226. These rounds are nicely pointed and that's the problem. They're a bit long and bind as the magazine turns to put the next round in position. I have to file the tips a bit for the rounds to have enough clearance. So, while these are the correct size, according to packaging description, they're just a bit too big. I figure I'll use these up and switch to another brand.

    Things I liked:

    They work for hunting and deliver great accuracy for the design. If your looking for a hunting round or just want to punch holes through thin gauge metal these will do the trick. While they cost a bit, I would purchase them again!

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be great if the price was less, but its a great product that works.

    Things I liked:

    I just got some hornets in .177. I have put these through weapons from 4 to 23ft lbs and they all did at least fair some amazing. A fair price for accuracy that performs like this on impact. Slightly effected by a croos wind is the only flaw I find in this pellet that somehow carries more energy downrange than a dome. Since the brass core doesn't come out like a poly-mag I wouldn't call it a hollow point. The ridge at the front causes a nasty wound track while the tip allows greater penetration. At the cost of these I don't recommend them as a target round, being a two piece pellet pellet the cost is a bit higher than most ammo. Almost a waste of the product if you're not brain shooting a raccoon or a coyote. That said if you need a bit more than you've been seeing from your current pellet I've got em in .177.22and .25 (blown away by .22) yaou should take a look.

    Things I liked:

    I like the pointed brass insert. Seems very accurate and has nice penetration and expansion. I single load my Crossman nitro piston air rifle, saying so, I don't use a magazine so the length of the pellet is a plus for me. This length seems to give the round a better co-efficient.

    Things I would have changed:

    The price! at almost $20.00 for a can 250 this is some expensive ammo! Premium ammo-premium price! After taxes and shipping I won't be using these for target practice!

    What others should know:

    These pellets are accurate. and heavy. Each shot I loaded had the same diameter. This is a plus for me! This is what I expect when purchasing premium ammo in .177 cal.

    Things I liked:

    I haven't bought these yet, but they're on my wish list. I was given about 50 Hornets to try and they are very accurate out of my HW100BP-K. The rifle produces about 17 fpe and these pellets give me 1/2" groups at 40 yards. I haven't hunted with them yet, but I have no doubt the penetration will be more than sufficient. Out of the 50 I was given, they are all very uniform in shape and weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    The cost. They may be on my wish list, but I'll wait for a sale before ordering them.

    What others should know:

    Being one of, if not the most expensive pellet on the market, I would split the cost with a buddy or 3 and try them in your guns before investing in a whole tin youself.

    Things I liked:

    Serious penetration, especially for lower velocity airguns, like my replica pistols (350 to 450 fps).

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Check maximum lenth allowed if your gun uses a rotary or belt fed magazine. These are pretty long and if they exceed magazine maximum length, will jam the mag and not feed properly

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate pellet in my crosman summit ranger np2 .177 Avg 944 fps, 5 shot string, 19.84 ft lbs energy on a 32 degree day. Pellets fit in the bore the same tightness 99% of the time. These are the best tolerances I have ever seen in HN pellets

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. They are expensive but I'm willing to pay extra for a precision pellet.

    What others should know:

    Pointed pellets are usually not the most accurate pellets but these are the exception. Great penetrating power on metal. Try them, dont let the price deter you. Use a pellet seat for proper seating and increased accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    This pellet is one of incredible quality. I thought I knew what a high quality pellet looked like until I saw these. Very very high impact in my gamo shadow 100 with a crossman nitro venom piston installed like the octane ram is with also a grt3 trigger. But on account of the point you get the high expansion at a deeper area of the pellets penetration path, rather than just on initial impact. The uniformity is unchallengeable in my opinion. The accuracy, at 8.8 grains out of my gun that shoots these I'm guessing well over anything my old BC would is staggering. I can shoot 3/8 inch groups at 20 yards out of that powerhouse gun. I know its a powerhouse because it sounds like a quiet .22 rim with an 8 gr or less pellet.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lower the price to like 22$ please? The incredible craftsmanship and what these do in comparison to what I bought them for makes it worth it for that sole purpose, since I don't shoot more than to check my zero and hunting for that critter.

    What others should know:

    I bought these because I was looking for both am accurate pellet for my gas ram powerhouse, and I was looking for a raccoon hunting pellet. A pellet that would kick a coon out of the tree so I could get another shot if needed or just anchor it in the the first shot. Unfortunately for my pocketbook these are the only pellets out of 12 or so my powerhouse gun that shoots with sub 1" accuracy. These pellets would group inside 2 inches at 50 yards, which with having such tight 3/8" accuracy at 20 means they are destabilizing roughly past 30 yards meaning they are too light for anything farther. Like I said I purchased for raccoon hunting so I won't be doing any more target practice than sight in, checking drop out to 30-35 yards, and checking zero throughout raccoon season as the temperatures change a lot in that time frame. Also, I anchored a raccoon at 25 yards with a front facing headshot with this pellet. It is worth the price for raccoon hunting. Will find setting else other things.

    Things I liked:

    Very high quality shoots great out of a gamo bone collector. Shoots through 2 spray paint cans back to back. Kills squirrels with no problems with the right shot. Can probably kill two at the same time when it goes through the first one?

    Things I would have changed:

    More per can would be nice but the quality is there. Screw on lid would be awesome but it works when you try to get a pellet in a hurry instead or screwing it off.

    What others should know:

    Very clean pellet, sharp point, and accurate shots.
