Things I liked: the quality
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: I was surprised that the Hornady bbs grouped better in both of my glock 19 s
Things I liked: These are the largest BB's that I've found so far. Having a .177 bore and a 0.171 BB is unacceptable so I set about trying to find the tightest fitting BB's a could find. Ideal to me would be 0.176 or 0.1765. The BB's I had decades ago in the 80's were 0.175 and fit tighter to the bore and were more accurate than today's BB's. These Daisy Avanti Match Grade avg'd 0.1739 (96.53% of total bore cross section area) Black Diamond's - 0.1732 (95.75%) Daisy Precision 2400 ct - 0.1731 ((95.64%) Daisy Precision(350 ct tube) - 0.1722) (94.64%) ( I thought they'd be the same but they were smaller in my sample) H&N Smart Shot lead - 0.1714 (93.77%) Crosman Copperhead - 0.1710 (93.33%) The Avanti's are also without any visible imperfections which is a major problem with the Crosman's more than any others. Between Crosman cheapening their pump guns and now their low quality BB's what in the heck are they thinking!? Thank you Daisy for making great BB's and thank you Pyramid for selling them.
Things I would have changed: Even larger - 0.175 or 0.1755 or possibly even 0.176 would still provide enough clearance and tolerance so that the BB's don't get lodged in the barrel.
What others should know: BB's closer to the actual bore size provide more accuracy and velocity and energy. If anyone knows any that are larger than the Avanti's then let me know. Thanks.
Things I liked: These BBs shoot very accurate out of the Daisy 499
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: These BBs are worth the money.

Tyler. Them why does the word AVANTI appear in the description above ???
Probably because these used to be known as AVANTI precision ground shot. Maybe just an error on PAs part
Where does the description Avanti appear on the package. What does Avanti mean if it is not shown on the container of bbs.
Avanti no longer appears on the package for these.
What's the difference between these and the premium ammo?
Daisy 'Match Grade Precision Ground Shot' is a "premium ammo". They're more expensive than, say, Copperhead BB's, and that's because they're more consistent in weight and diameter. I've found them to be more accurate than many other BB's, as well as being slightly larger in diameter. With some rotary magazines, Copperheads are too small and fall out of the 'clips'. These, along with Hornady Black Diamond BB's don't have that problem.
