Things I liked:

Excellent accuracy out of my fx impact. Groups are comparable to JSB exact diabolo 25.39 gr. I used these for hunting. One cottontail rabbit and 8 eurasian collared doves were felled with one shot each. None were headshots, all were pass-throughs. Ranges varied from 20 to 40 yds. Soft tissue damage appeared to be greater than the domed pellets. The impacts were significantly more audible than with traditional domed pellets. I like them and will continue to use them for hunting.

Things I would have changed:

Price. Same as the other reviewers.

What others should know:

I had to re-zero my scope for these. They hit 2 Inches low at 30 yds compared to the JSB 25.39 gr domed. Not certain they actually expand or fragment on game because they were not recovered. Some of the skirts are slightly dinged (in shipping, I presume.) The same shots taken on the same game with domed pellets would have given the same results, most likely. I shot one Eurasian with a .22 FX hybrid slug from my Kral puncher knight. It fell, dead, from the tree also. The slug did not make a loud WHOP like the Hades .25 when they hit a dove.

Things I liked:

None

Things I would have changed:

The Hades were not accurate compared side by side with the Match Kings or the Predator Polymags. I expected them to be almost the same as the kings. Looking at the base, the skirts of the Hades are much thinner which caused many of the skirts to be damaged. They should change the die to improve reliability of shipped pellets.

What others should know:

A large quantity of the pellet skirts are dented and damaged.

    Things I liked:

    I have the Hatsan Bullboss and Bully, both in .25 cal. I've narrowed down my 2 favorite diabolo pellets for them. I like the JSB Hades for shots up to 50 yards which I mostly use the Bullboss for. Over 50 yards, I like my Bully with JSB Exact King Heavy MK2. Both guns love the Hades and are very accurate. Have been using them for a year now and no problems.

    Things I would have changed:

    Availability. Frustrating to have the extra money on hand to stock up and they are sold out. Also, have to go with the crowd and say price. LOL

    What others should know:

    I hear others saying they are not accurate. Some air guns don't like them (a few that are picky) but they are very accurate if your gun does like them. Give them a shot and judge for yourself.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate in my hatsan 155 but started dropping the lever at times, maybe due to the additional weight/recoil.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not sure, maybe a 20-22 gr version

    What others should know:

    These wouldn't seat in my striker, and caused the issue above with the 155, lighter pellets don't drop the cocking lever, although it does save time reloading. Just a defect or weak spring in the rifle.

    JSB Hades are my go to to for "pests" and rodents ,accurate, hard hitting, distinct sound on impact. Clean, consistent, reliable.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price, ( only if quality says the same) . Eventually the supplies will catch up to the demand.

    What others should know:

    Pre order and be patient, worth the wait! Premium pellets. Of course, sight in, and go to work! Buy 3 & get one free! P.Air does a great job of packing and shipping! At 50 yards you can " stack these up. RECOMMEND

    Things I liked:

    These pellets hit almost to the same point of impact as the JSB exact kings, out to about 50 yards out of my Maurader 25 caliber. After 50 yards the Hades start dropping off pretty significantly. These are cheaper than the polymags and seem to perform better, in terms of trajectory and terminal performance. I have popped several doves, ground squirrels, and even nailed a gopher who was unfortunate enough to poke his head up in y presence. Around the office I have been able to quietly lay waste to pigeons and crows. The crows absolutely freak out when feathers start to fly.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would not change a thing. No feeding problems, great value, flying great every shot.

    What others should know:

    If you have pest problems that need quiet eradication... the Hades is a great option.

    What others should know:

    Was hoping these would perform like the other 2 JSB .25 cal pellets in my Eagle Claw which i can shoot on full power. Had to dial these down to power level 2 using 160bar for accuracy past 40y. Bout 800fps. But even at this speed they pretty devastating, they just too light for me. Keep wishing JSB would make a 40g .25cal. The 34g JSB are my best bet from this co. for target practice. I use the NSA slugs when hunting for the most part. My Sumatra (sam yang) didnt likem at all. Maybe the Seneca Sumatra would likem better. My Hat 155 Torpedo which is a pellet whore loves them as does my Hat 135 which is kinda picky. The more "special" pellets i try? keeps proving to me that Domed pellets work best
