Things I liked: The price and design... Cheapest .20 caliber pellet on the market but shoots just like the high dollar ones from my Sheridens. Really like the design. It is a VAST improvement over the original ashcan that gave very poor accuracy. I've tested this pellet against the Beeman Silver Jet, Cow Magnum, Silver Sting and Silver Bear and it outshot all but the Silver Jet.
Things I would have changed: They need to be just a little larger in diameter. While they shoot excellently in my Shreidans and very well from a R9 they will not even stay in the chamber of a Airforce Condor. That said of all the pellets I have tried in the Condor only the JSB and the now discontinued Crossman Premier fit tightly in the chamber without using a pellet seater to push the round up into the rifling.
What others should know: If you have a Dan this is really the only pellet you need. It has a design that is superior to most of the others and penetrates very deeply. I shot a crow at 35 yards with 8 [email protected] fps from a Steroided Dan and it broke both shoulders completely penetrating the bird from side to side. Was dead when it hit the ground. Also complete penetration on red squirrels 20 yards and out. It will kill efficiently as far away as you can hit. If this pellet was larger in diameter it would probably also work fantastically in PCP guns...but as it is I would not recommend them. I am surprised that they don't make this design is other calibers.
Things I liked: Shape is similar to the Sheridan pellets I shot for decades in my Bluestreak. Not bad performance in my Streak, for the $ a good plinking pellet.
Things I would have changed: Better quality control on the shape/sizing. I shoot Benjamin Discovery 14.3 gr .22 pellets in my Summit, and they are very accurate. Not sure if this .20 cal pellet is made at the same facility, but these are not as uniform!
What others should know: I'm shooting a 1962 Sheridan Bluestreak rebuilt by Tim at Mac1 airguns (now in Long Beach, CA). It has been "steroid" modified. These pellets group best at 5-6 pumps. At 7-8 pumps, which is max I can pump, grouping opens up.
Things I liked: very well made. obviously made by crossman
Things I would have changed: sizing is very bad they just fall into the barrel with no resistance at all. i won t shoot these pellets because it s almost like dry firing my rifles
