Things I liked: The machining finish of this pellet into a sawtooth Hollowpoint, the well finished flat shallow cavity of the tail cone, which is synonymous of ALL Crosman Premier pellets. This design of the cavity promotes low drag that gives excellent velocity that continues for a very good distance. The 10.50 grainage weight. I recommend this pellet for magnum springer/gas piston breakbarrel air rifles. No damaged pellets, no fliers during accuracy test.
Things I would have changed: NOTHING. Bought this pellet for what it is. I have 5 other .177 air rifles and 27 tins of various grains and head designs. Instead of changing something about this pellet, I would change to a different Premier or other pellet design and appropriate grainage for the power of the air rifle. I would change the tin count to 500, like the other Premiers.
What others should know: Shot this pellet chronograph test with my .177 Crosman Nitro Venom at 767, 768, 765, 762, and 758 fps for an average of 764 fps. I primarily purchased this pellet for my .177 Umarex Octane and .177 Ruger Air Magnum. The Umarex Octane 5 shot chronograph average was 874 fps. The Ruger Air Magnum 5 shot average was 911 fps. For all tree air rifle chronograph tests today, the temperature was 55 degrees with wind speed from the west at 18-20 mph, altitude is 149 ft above sea level. I was shooting directly into the wind. I did conduct. I did conduct an accuracy test, from 80 feet, shooting directly into the wind, at a 1 inch target affixed on a 12 inch by 12 inch box shooting the Crosman Nitro Venom. 15 shots shooting directly in to the wind with the rifles right hand rifling spin and the pellets sawtooth hollowpoint, I thought was pretty good. 3 shots did hit the 1 inch target, the other 12 were up to 1 inch from target center. On a calm windless day accuracy would be better. Woodys World.
Things I liked: nicely priced
Things I would have changed: not being an engineer; don't really know
What others should know: 4" pattern @ 20 yrds in gamo hornet... 1.5" group @ 8 yrds crossman 1077
Things I liked: Not a bad pellet. I'm not particularly a fan of any of the gimmicky pellets, and I waited a long time to try the pirhanas. I usually stick with domes and wadcutters. The pirhanas are decently accurate and hard hitting pellets, and I can find them on the store shelf, which is a big plus. I shoot them out of a cheap ($60) springer i keep in the truck. So far, this is the best pellet i have tried in that gun.
Things I would have changed: For impact, it ought to just have a flat or semi flat nose. .177 pellets loose velocity too quickly to take advantage of the hollowpoint design much further than 10 yards. Still waiting for a dome with a flattened nose, with good weight. Otherwise, just stick to wadcutters for impact or domes for range.
What others should know: Adequate power and accuracy are #1 with airguns. No fancy pellet design is going to increase the lethality of a poorly placed shot. The pirhanas do pretty good in my cheap winchester breakbarrel. About a half inch at ten yards, and easily shoot 5 hour energy bottles at 20-30 yards. I have not tried any quality domes in that gun, and I won't. Just a beater gun i keep in the truck. For best results, try a variety of domes. For a decent pellet you can get on the store shelf, good to plink or inside 25 yards or so to hunt, the pirhanas are good if your gun likes them. Still haven't hunted with these, can't test them on small game until fall.
