H&N Baracuda FT .177 Cal, 4.50mm, 9.57 Grains, Round Nose, 400ct
Designed specifically with the competitive shooter in mind, H&N has optimized the Baracuda FT pellet for precision performance. Competitive shooters will love the consistency and accuracy this pellet delivers. This pellet delivers the best results in rifles and pistols generating 12 Ft. Lbs. (16J) of energy and is held to extremely tight tolerances during production.
H&N tests each production lot at 50m, and requires a 5 shot center to center group of 12mm or less and a 20 shot center to center group of 20mm or less. Whether you are a competitor, a hunter or a plinker; if ultimate accuracy is required, look no further than the H&N Baracuda FT!
Item Code: HN-92294500004 [PY-P-1480]
|Suggested for||Small game hunting/target practice|
|Head Size||4.50 mm|
|Ballistic Coefficient||0.018 A measure of the potential to retain velocity. Changes as velocity changes. A pellet or bullet with a high BC (a large number) will continue to fly much longer than a pellet or bullet with a low BC.|

Things I liked: These pellets are extremely accurate in my TX200 (tuned to 13.4 fpe). I shot a 3/4" 15-shot group at 50 yards yesterday in a 5 mph crosswind. These pellets seem to buck the wind better than JSB 10.3gr pellets. Saw no bent skirts on the pellets. I also like the screw top tin.
Things I would have changed: Lower price.
What others should know: These pellets have a thin skirt, much like JSB pellets. They are tight in my TX200 breach, but once I get them started, they popped right in. I also ordered a tin of the 4.51 mm head FT pellets. I will try these out in the next day or two. I am not sure that the ballistic coefficient is 0.018: It may be higher since these pellets buck the wind better than JSB 10.3gr pellets with a BC of 0.031.
Things I liked: Very uniform and only 1 slightly bent skirt in the whole tin. They track very well and do surprisingly well in the wind
Things I would have changed: Nothing so far, they work good at a pair price
What others should know: This works well out of my BSA Buccaneer so far. I will try the 4.51 head size next and see if they handle differently.

I don't understand the "grains". Is this about weight? What's better, light or heavy?
Yes, that is the weight of the pellet. There are a ton of different factors that will determine what works well in your gun, you should test and see what works best.
Is the ballistic coefficient really 0.018? Seems kind of low. When I shot these yesterday they bucked the wind better than JSB10.3gr pellets with a BC of 0.31.
BC varies based on what the projectile is being shot from (ie, what velocity it is being shot at), H&N provides numbers for their pellets often tested at 12FPE.
