Things I liked: They're made by Hornady, and they look cool!
Things I would have changed: Accuracy. big time!
What others should know: I've ran these in a Umarex Steel Force, Beretta APX and a Daisy Red Ryder. Had them all sighted with Crosman Copperheads. I get nice tight groups. (Shooting from a rest) Loaded the Black Diamonds and had to zero my scopes and red dot again. The groups I was getting, again from a rest, were not even close to the Copperheads. Hornady is in my EDC. Really wanted to like these babies.
Things I liked: These and the Umarex (who might make these) are the most consistent diameter pellets of 4 I measured as well as the most accurate in a Colt Python BB revolver (made by Umarex, I think).
Things I would have changed: A lower price would be nice.
What others should know: I measured four brands of premium BB's in a Colt Python revolver and tested 3 of them at 5 yds. The Hornady were the most accurate as well as tying for the most consistent diameter. Here are the 4 with most common, largest and smallest diameters measured with a micrometer: Crosman Copperhead: 0.171", 0.1715",0.170" Incredibly inaccurate in my Colt Python. Hornady: 0.173" no measurable difference Daisy Precision Max: 0.174", 0.175", 0.1735" Umarex Steel BBs: 0.173" no measurable difference, not tested
Things I liked: Reasonably priced for a much better quality bb. Function flawlessly in my semi auto pistols.
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: I recently purchased a new semi auto pistol that jammed and misfired several times out of 21 shot mag using zinc plated steel bbs. When I switched to these Hornady bbs I had zero malfunctions through 300 consecutive shots. I tried the zinc plated ones again to see if the gun had just needed breaking in and the jams started again. I would suggest if anyone has jamming or misfire problems try these bbs before blaming the gun. I read a few reviews of the gun I purchased malfunctioning exactly like mine was(trigger sticking back with misfire). IMO they're well worth a little money.
