Things I liked: When we moved to the country 3 years ago we found our property overrun with gophers, so I dusted off my '66 Sheridan Blue Streak (that I bought new) and went hunting. I was pleasantly surprised at the advancements that have been made in pellets since the old days. These JSB's perform extremely well in my old gun. They are accurate and hard hitting. They all seem to be uniformly well made. I had to site in my scope again because they were shooting high, which leads me to believe that I am getting more velocity than I did with the old Benjamin Diabolos I was using. I like the weight for hunting. With 500 in the tin, this is a good deal for the price.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: Just check how your gun is shooting if you change pellets. Different pellets perform differently in different guns.
Things I liked: these czech pellets make all my sheridans into american superhero guns.....i've tried all the old sheridan and beeman pellets in various sheridan rifles. i honestly dont know how we did it back then (when getting quality pellets was harder)......but not only are these jsb's the highest quality 5mm , pyramyd makes them cheaper, too....... i also like that these 13.7 gr exacts are comparable to the .22 jsb lites (air arms falcon pellet) at 13.5 grains......so i compare a lot with .22.........
Things I would have changed: other than this pellet being a little heavier than that 12 grain area that most suits the .20 bore......nothing....perfect pellet. in fact, this is the one particular jsb pellet that doesnt loose velocity when launched from more powerful springers. the .22 jsb skirts dont seem to hold back the slower explosion of air from spring piston. co2, pumper, pcp rifles love all jsb's...... but this 5mm exact has a little more lead in the skirt area, making it sturdier for us piston guys ..... and it's cheap - $13.00 / 500 well packaged highest quality .20 cal pellets.........i still dunno how the american 5mm pellets kept things alive here......i tried the 1980 cylinders thinking they were better than these current .20 benjamin pellets scarcely available now...but they did worse from my 1970's bluestreaks. - they sell for $17 / 500 and are ok from a lother walther match barrel, which is choked for 2" at muzzle.....most anything should good through those barrels......
What others should know: ..........but sheridan barrels are different. brass - not steel. before they merged and later got into crosman corp around 1990, the benjis and sheridans were quite a bit different. i have been on a 2 year quest now to find a .22 benjamin pumper that is as accurate as my bluestreaks. all 3 of my bluestreaks shoot dime size hole at 45 yards using jsb's and a 7x scout/pistol scope mounted up on barrel. my steroid leaves one ragged hole at 40 yards on 8 pumps (580 fps on 5 pumps - 800 fps on 14 pumps).
Things I liked: .20 cal ... Huh, such is love of a near dead caliber. These pellets shoot GREAT in those heirloom Sheridans exceeding the original barrel / point shape made originally for these guns while also exceeding accuracy of the now obsolete Crosman pellet. Am lucky to also have a custom Daystate MK-3 in .20 cal that shoots the JSB's stellar !!! Do you part & at @ 30 yards hole in hole in hole making at most a .25 hole after 10 shots. Quality is JSB at it's best with these and awful glad we can still get a quality pellet for the .20 caliber !!
Things I would have changed: Nothing ....
What others should know: Soft lead ... if the distributor, shipper and handling in general has been gentle you will have tins of 500 match grade pellets !! If tins get handled badly & knocked around you will have damages ... soft lead and thin skirts make these pellets fairly fragile IMO.
