Things I liked:

For pest control, these can't be beat! Using the m-rod ,P-rod, and gamo urban, pests don't have a chance. These are not for target practice or plinking. They are for one thing only, and they do that very well. The sound of a headshot on a squirrel with a polymag is a sound that you won't forget! It's a sound of devastation for the pest! The pellet is very accurate. I use them in all three calibers that I have from the .177, .22, .25. They are very effective.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing becuase the cost would only go up.

What others should know:

The shorts work perfect in my M-Rods magazine. The gamo red tip in .22 is next in line when pyramydair is out of the polymag, just isn't as accurate past 50 yards as the polymag are! We have a blue berry farm and these pellets are used daily. I have head shot a tree rat at 110 yards, with my 25cal M-Rod. Keep extra tins around. I order some with almost every order.

Things I liked:

I tried the Polymag shorts with my Gamo Swarm Magnum. These pellets are by far the worst pellets ive tried yet for accurracy. At 20 yards they group fairly decent about a quarter size with 5 shots. At thirty yards they are literally all over the target. At 80 yards the pellets are over 2 feet from my target. Even at this extreme distance the H&N FTT can Still hit a 6" target quite easily.

What others should know:

For my airgun these pellets are only accurate to about 60 feet. Several of the pellets had the red tips that were smaller than the rest. I def would not recommend these to anyone with a Swarm Magnum!

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, uniform expansion,

    Things I would have changed:

    Make skirt diameter slightly larger so pellet does not fall out of the barrel on a RWS 48 in 22 cal.

    What others should know:

    Overall very good pellet for small pests, but I will partially cock my RWS 48 and insert a Predator polymag pellet and then release the cocking lever without compressing the spring, then when I need it I just have to compress spring and shoot. The problem is occasionally when I go to compress the spring, with barrel pointing upward, the Predator pellet will fall out of the barrel and then as I close the breach the pellet will get jammed in the breach making the gun non-operable, a real pain. Then I have to use a pick with a curved and twisted end to get the damaged pellet out of the breach. Guess no more preloading of Predator polymag pellets, and need to keep an eye on the pellet when I do load. Not ergonomic to compress the spring with the barrel pointing downward on a side-lever like the RWS 48.

    Things I liked:

    They feed flawlessly in the magazine of my FX Impact MKII Compact .22 (the non-short version was too long to work.) They are also very accurate in this same rifle (1/4" at 25 yards.) I like that they are shorter than the longer version but weigh almost the same (only 0.25g less.) They do some pretty cool damage to stuff when compared to domed pellets.

    Things I liked:

    I shoot an umarex octane 22 cal for various critters around my house. I'm not the guy that tests multiple ammo and shoots 1000 rounds a year. These things shoot 1-1 1/2 groups at 40 yards and kill things up to groundhog size consistently. They expand well and get the job done.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    They are a little pricey but it's worth it to me.

    What others should know:

    just a great pellet. accuracy is more than the comments offer online and elsewhere. i can shoot about a 1/8" dot from 30 yards easy. people need to know how to zero a scope... also how to hold s rifle while shooting.

    Things I liked:

    I had hard times looking for the right pellets for my Hatsan bullboss which for some reason doesn't like any pellets that I had tried until I've found the Predator Polymag Shorts and it shoots beautifully.My FX Wildcat also shoot them very well...pellets to go for both guns.It's fun to shoot at paper it makes a nice round and clean hole.Received my tin in perfect condition...Thank you!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    A little bit pricy.

    What others should know:

    What's not to like! The Polymags are a great design - they're accurate - they expand well

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    It's been interesting watching the airgun technology grow over these past few years. And along with that, the changes in pellet designs to meet the airguns. Polymag is an example of this. First, they developed the Polymag for single pellet loading airguns, then when magazines started showing up requiring a shorter length, they didn't drop their original design, which would have been more cost effective from a manufacturing standpoint - they expanded their line to include the Polymag Short. Good job Polymag!

    What others should know:

    Make sure to use the shorts in rotary magazines. At first , I liked the terminator pellets, then I found the devastator pellets and liked them more. Now I have found these and like them the best. One hole at 50 feet out of the Benjamin Marauder. The crack sound made when contacting the target is louder than the gunshot. One shot stops.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely accurate for a hunting pellet through a Gamo Swarm Magnum. Penetration on over 100 large ground squirrels was through and through on all but one. The pellet went through the front leg, shattering the bone, entered the chest, and traveled diagonally stopping just under the skin of the opposite rear thigh. The recovered pellet had uniformally expanded to .304 caliber. These pellets consistently hit ground squirrels and jack rabbits out to 40 meters with deadly results. The only pellets I have tried that were more accurate were the lead free GTOs, but they did not have the same lethal effect as the Polymags and were more susceptible to wind.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing. These pellets performed perfectly on small game and for pest control.

    What others should know:

    Using the Gamo Swarm Magnum, the Polymag Shorts function flawlessly through the magazine and seem to expend all most all of their energy by way of expansion when used on ground squirrels. The pellets did very minor damage to objects like wood and stucco after passing completely through squirrels and even jack rabbits compared to other pellets including traditional hollow point pellets.

    What others should know:

    i shot these in 22 cal from a bsa r10 se rifle, a fx wildcat, and a hw44 weirach pistol, and none of them can group these pellets well for anything. the gamo red fire exceeds these in performance hands down in all aforementioned guns. just my experience. 1/2" inch groups at 20 yards versus 1 1/2" groups for the polymag shorts.

    These pellets shoot like they are laser guided out of my P-rod. One right after the other into same hole on paper and the pigeons as well as the squirrels REALLY don't care for them. I am making shots at distances the P-rod is not noted for.....at least officially.

    They didn't group well in a couple of my hunting rigs. (AA 400 and brocock compatto) Didn't try them in any other of my rifles so they may group in them. But that's they way it goes some rifles just prefer a certain pellet. Just that those two rigs are my go-to rifles that I hunt with most.
