Things I liked:

Outstanding hunting pellets

Things I would have changed:

nothing

What others should know:

I am a bit taken aback as I read some of the other reviews here. If someone believes these pellets are too heavy, buy lighter pellets. They are not uniform. They are perfectly uniform. Skirts are damaged, skirts are perfect. I think these are very good hunting pellets and I would recommend them for that purpose. If one cannot hit a walnut at 25 yards one should not be hunting with an air gun, one should be hunting with a .410 shotgun.

Things I liked:

Weight and size

Things I would have changed:

The shape and other factors that contribute to flight characteristics. Not aerodynamic in any way.

What others should know:

If you are tired of your "boringly accurate gun" and want to introduce an element of chance into your shooting experience, have I got a pellet for you! I tried to zero my scope with these at 27 yards, but I gave up after about 15 or 20 shots because almost every single shot keyholed and the standard deviation was about 12". In total, I fired 55 of these pellets out of my (otherwise) extremely accurate Umerex Gauntlet and got a 15" group. Luckily, I got them as part of a sampler, so I didn't get burned too badly. The Crossman Premier hallow points I got at Walmart for 1/4 the price put these to shame

    What others should know:

    After many shots going from the short range to my standard distance, I decided to take a different approach. Starting over I found a sweet spot 20 yards nailed it 30 yards nailed it 40 yards just 3 of 10 pellets hit an 8" target. I was immediately an unhappy camper. If you shoot only 20 or 30 yards then it is fine but if you are like me 40 yards is a good all round beginning point I'll dedicate these pellets to a gun zeroed for 20 yards and the occasional close up shots

    Things I liked:

    I tried these in my Gamo Swarm Fusion gas piston air rifle with great success. They loaded well in the Gamo 10 X mags and I remember the first shot was a bullseye at 40 yards. Knock down power was amazing and I call these "Thuds" because of the sound they made dispensing pests.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish they were 300 count for the price.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate in all my springers. Benji Prowler 21 ftlbs. Beeman Mach 12.5 30 ftlbs . RS-2 Beeman x2 17ftlbs. I use treated 2x6 backstop pine. Pellet penetrates to cover the skirt in all gun(10meters). Knockdown is impressive on jackrabbit..and foxes. Higher velocity than Rabbit Mag IIs..more accurate...less hard alloy though....(I have do more test before head-shot pigs...although at 10 meters an eye shot is assured 100 percent.) I only use the Mach on pigs. All guns .22 cal. Rs 2 can convert to .177..but too accurate to mess with that. You get .25 cal. Results at this weight.knockdown. with.flatter trajectory.cost. variety of pellets. Availability.etc.

    Things I would have changed:

    If it remained accurate...maybe offer a HARDER LEAD ALLOY version specifically for hardtarget penetration...bone smashing. Our possums are HUGE!!! due to favorable climate last couple years ALL game teeming in west Texas.

    What others should know:

    Since I use springer/gas piston guns only..I limit my use of heavier pellets to extend gun life.The Mach 12.5 max out at 27 gr.hn slugs.217s 30 ftlbs...but is optimized for 18-21gr.weights. The [email protected] 16 gr. Rs 2 16 gr. The weaker guns give good performance with this heavy and can be replaced..but not the Mach! try and find one.

    What others should know:

    These shoot like a rocket in my 60 foot pound 22 caliber Raw hm1000x shooting them at like 1037fps I'm getting one ragged hole at 50 yards at that speed, yes I found it hard to believe, I tryed the new 25 grain redesigns with zero luck. But these are hole in hole at high speeds. I will be giving the 34 grain monsters next.

    What others should know:

    I got these initially to try in my .22 Hatsan Barrage. using 14, 15, and 18gr .22 pellets that would not group. It was so bad I was beginning to think it was just very inaccurate, or something was wrong with it. Figured I'd try a heavier pellet. Magic. Groups great now, etc. It just needed a heavier pellet.

    Things I liked:

    The sizing was very consistent from pellet to pellet. No dings or dents found.

    What others should know:

    DON'T use these in anything but an extremely powerful airgun. It takes a huge amount of power to push these 29.39 gr pellets through a gun with any kind of accuracy. My air rifle is not bad on power (Gamo Swarm) but it did not like these heavy pellets at all. At 18 yards, I couldn't keep the shots on an 8.5"x11" target. Throwing them by hand would have been much more accurate. I switched to a 19.0 gr pellet and put 8 of 10 in a circle the size of a quarter from a standing rest (not a bench rest) from the same distance. I can't blame the poor accuracy on the pellets since they were very consistent in size, nor my gun since lighter pellets grouped well, nor me since I was the shooter for both. The only other variable is gun power. I would recommend a PCP air rifle for these big boys.

    Lower the price.

    What others should know:

    When my order came, I was very pleased with the packaging. When I opened the box, both tiins were nested inside foam in such a way that there is no way they could be damaged during shipping.

    What others should know:

    This is not a packing problem. Pyramydair does an excellent job of packing. JSB needs to replace worn components in their mold production equipment more often.

    Things I liked:

    Dialed these in at 35 yards with Game whisper fusion mach1. Don't know speeds but hunting small game and pests effectively. This is the only pellet I have used where you can hear the impact when shooting "live targets" in the 40-45yd range. Very effective weapon for guns that can handle the weight. Forget all the rhetoric about expansion, you can visible see transfer of energy into target.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have not seen build-up in barrel but hope at some point they have alloy coating on outside.

    Things I liked:

    I bought these pellets to shoot in my Gamo Swarm Magnum and they didn't shoot well at all. I believe the reason for this is that my rifle doesn't put out the energy to propel it fast enough to stabilize. My rifle only pushes that pellet around 650 FPS. This same rifle will shoot a one inch group at 25 yards with 18.3 JSB pellets consistently pushing it over 800 FPS. I believe this pellet would be really good if I had a rifle to push it around 800 FPS. It looks like a well made pellet.

    What others should know:

    If your gun won't push this pellet around 800 plus FPS then it probably won't work for you. This is just my opinion, I have no way to test this because I don't have a really powerful air rifle (PCP).

    Things I liked:

    I think the pellets are made well but they didn't work so well for me.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing as of right now.

    What others should know:

    I read a bunch of the reviews on this pellet and thought I would give it a try since they are mostly quite happy with this pellet. The best advice was this pellet needs speed to be accurate, well that statement is probably true. I have a Gamo Swarm Magnum and thought this would be a good accurate pellet for my rifle. With the JSB Match Exact Diabolo 18.3 gr pellets I can shoot a 10 shot group around an inch at 20 yds.. With these Monsters I tried at 20 yards I would be lucky to get a 6 inch group. QUITE DISAPPOINTED. So I checked the speed, five shots were,654, 664, 654,655and 659. Pretty consistent over the crony but not good on the paper. The 18.3 shot 838, 837,839,836 and 830 averaging 836 and these will give a 10 shot group around an inch at 20 yds. With all that said I know the gun will shoot if fed the right pellets, it just doesn't like them big heavies. I think the pellets are fine just won't group in my rifle. Hoped them Monsters would be the ticket but "WRONG"...
