Things I liked: By far the best for hunting. The lead skirt will detach on impact as ball will continue to penetrate. Accuracy is assume. I maintain 1 inch groups at 40 yards.
Things I would have changed: I wish they made them in 25 and 357 caliber.
What others should know: Handles extremely well shoring though brush cover
Things I liked: Penetration big time. Consistent and accuracy @1/4 inch at 10 yards.
Things I would have changed: More per tin
What others should know: Headshots on larger game will drop them in there tracks
Things I liked: Apparently, VERY hard-hitting: I tested these on a big fat raccoon a few days ago, and the results were markedly different than what I got with the Crosman .22 domed lead pellets. To wit: I've plugged raccoons (trash pandas, a name I got from a friend's son) in the head with the Crosmans, and they run several yards and finally expire after twitching and flopping around. The first trash panda I plugged with the .22 Gamo Rocket dropped like six feet of chain---he didn't get two feet from the spot where I nailed him. And I've never seen a raccoon flop over backwards like this one did! Then, about an hour later, an opossum dropped in for dinner, and WHAP! The opossum also dropped right then and there. When I nailed 'possums with the Crosman domed pellets, they would scamper away and die some distance off, just like the 'coons; not this time. There was no Luck of the Irish for O'possum this time! (Small joke. Ha-ha. No, huh?)
Things I would have changed: They might want to maybe make these babies do they don't fit quite so darned tight when you load them; I made a makeshift pellet pen, and I couldn't get these to seat any deeper than when I pushed them in as hard as I could with my thumb. I've seen pictures on the Internet where people have been able to seat pellets deep enough so the skirt can't get squashed out of shape when you close the barrel, which is said to be a good idea (not squashing the pellet skirt, that is.) As for the price: Meh. For the great results I'm getting, they're well worth it, though *your* mileage may vary. I plan to get more, and some in .177 for my other Benjamin too.
What others should know: I had no idea how these would shoot in my Benjamin, and was delighted to find the Trail digested these quite well, giving good tight groups from a crappy makeshift benchrest (stacked cardboard boxes and a little pillow!) at 12 yards: six shots in a row you could cover with a quarter. I can hardly wait to get my home-made shooting tripod finished; a good solid rest should improve things even more.
