Things I liked: Low cost pellet, that shoots accurate enough for my purposes. Pellets are relatively hard, giving great penetration, and subject to less deformation in shipping and handling. The lighter weight gives higher velocity, making it flatter shooting in lower powered airguns.
Things I would have changed: None
What others should know: In my experience, this pellet performs best in low to mid powered airguns. My HW35 likes these pellets. These pellets don't seem to perform as well at the high velocities of higher powered airguns. All my shooting is done offhand, not from a rest. The longest distance I can shoot at home is 65 yards, and if I do my part, I can hit a soup can out there, every time with this pellet. Good enough accuracy for me.
Things I liked: Cheap and above average plinking accuracy for price. Gives 1/2" groups at 10 meters from many of my cheap, low power, Big Box store(i.e. Crosman,Daisy,Gamo,etc) air rifles and pistols.Some guns even shoot them well out to 20 yards. With Buy Four One Free, ya can't beat 'em !
Things I would have changed: The packaging leaves pellets open to deformation but I think these have enough antimony in them to prevent very many bent skirts. Wouldn't want a change if it meant a higher price. Not that big of a deal.
What others should know: The wadcutter version also shoots well.
Things I liked: Very clean pellets. A Pyramyd pro explained that Crosman does use other elements to make its pellets harder. They do penetrate better than traditional pointed designs. At 7.4 grains they are hard and light.
Things I would have changed: Any variations in the skirt or weight is minimal. I have noticed some "pee-wees" when shooting - meaning a wild shot do to some deviation. Not sure what can be improved; maybe line the carton with foam. Not sure that can be done. My lesson here is that no matter what pellet, ordering a mound of them in a container is likely to create some problems with consistency. Going forward, I will likely just order multiple tins of any pellet I really like.
What others should know: I currently have been putting this pellet in a competition against the Excite line by H&N. The Excite wadcutters get mixed reviews, but I can vouch that the Hammers and Spikes are excellent. The Excite was made for pump guns or smaller spring guns. What the Germans consider "econo" are quite good. My Black Ops pump loves Hammers as does my 880. My 880 has made some memorable shots with these Crosman points, though!
