Things I liked: Cost compared to other premium pellets, only Daisy is cheaper.
Things I would have changed: Size-Copperheads are the smallest diameter of 4 BB's I measured with a micrometer. They were also the least accurate in a Colt Python BB revolver (made by Umarex, I believe). I measured 10 of each BB, recording largest. smallest, most common size (not average) Copperhead: 0.1715" largest, 0.170" smallest, 0.171" most common Hornady Black Diamond, 0.173" most common, no measurable difference in 10 BBs. These were the most accurate. Daisy Precision Max, 0.175" largest, 0.1735" smallest, 0.174 most common. Umarex Steel BB's, 0.173" no measurable difference
What others should know: The Copperheads are too small to stay in the magazine of my Colt Python. They fall out if you hold the magazine anywhere near horizontal. It's difficult to get the magazine into the revolver without some dropping out. They are essentially unusable in the Colt, as well as being incredibly inaccurate, missing a 12"x12" target at 5 yds. They just zoom off like a badly sliced gold ball.
Things I liked: The spout of the bottle lets me load up my Daisy model 25 and Red Ryder quickly. The shape of the bottle is much more sensible than that of Daisy's. Very ergonomic and simple. Made in USA... don't see that very often now, I like that about them.
Things I would have changed: Better copper plating on the bb's, please. If they could hit my cans from 10meters in that shape, imagine how much more accurate it could be! I remember copperhead bb's being a bit more round... These would NOT be my primary nor secondary choice of airgun shot, those spots are for daisy and umarex bb's.
What others should know: A lot of the BB's left much to be desired. Pitting from rust and flakes of copper riddle the air shot. Very dirty. Shoots alright for plinking, but I would rather have the Zinc plated Daisy bb's before i grab another one of these... plus, the zinc plated bb's are 5.50 for 6000 at my Walmart. The bottle was also very murky with the rust that covers the inside of the container. If your goal is to plink without regard of accuracy, go for it, hits cans at 10 meters plenty good.
Things I liked: Good value. Shoot straight
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: Easy load bottle makes loading easy for kids
