Things I liked: Consistent Pellet. The tins are clearly marked with the date of manufacture, batch number and machine center used. This allows you to police batches you like if they are still in stock. I ordered 4 tins to Canada, as nobody in the country sells these pellets. Three of the tins were from the same run and ARE ACTUALLY 5.52mm head diameter; confirmed with a PELLET GAGE. The forth tin is from a newer 2018 run and is 5.53mm in diameter. The newer tin shows a slightly cleaner tail with a little more flash around the outside of the pellet where it was made, and a brighter look. This is to be expected in a newer tin as they have been handled less. There are a couple in all tins with deformed tails; this happens in every tin of pellets. The important thing here is they are ALL THE SAME SIZE IN THE TIN.
Things I would have changed: Screw on lid to prevent disasters.
What others should know: The JSB exact heavies which are for all intent and purposes the same pellet made under the same roof but with different dies. The issue with them is The range anywhere from 5.49 - 5.54 in the same tin with majority being 5.50. Every single tin. This does not make for good consistent groups and lots of flyers. At least if they are the larger size they can be sized back to 5.52 with a die which is what I do. All the rest that are too small are no good in my gun which is 3/4 of the tins, and I had to bin them. I believe the runs are mixed together with JSB, and not so with AA Pellets. This is reason enough to pay for the AA brand.
Things I liked: All 10 shots touching
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: All 10 shots touching at 15 yds from Gamo Urban. Harder metal than the equivalent JSB pellet, less prone to deform
Things I liked: These shoot very well in my Umarex Gauntlet. They'll take out prairie dogs at over a hundred yards.
Things I would have changed: Can't think of anything. This is a pretty nice pellet.
What others should know: All air guns are different. Give these a try in yours. They worked out very well in my Gauntlet. I haven't tried them in my Gamo Coyote or Benjamin Disco yet but I'm pretty sure I'll have the same results.
