Things I liked: Just bought a refurbished Gamo bonecollecter and bought these to try to determine what the gun prefers. JSB has a good reputation for quality and consistency and they appear to be just that. So far I've yet to figure out the artillery hold and am unable to stop the vertical stringing effect after a couple hundred shots. Very frustrating as I able to shoot 25 yd near 1/4" groups with my rimfire .22 and this is my first experience with a gas piston rifle.
Things I would have changed: Freight on this single item was over 50% of the product cost and it took nearly 10 days to arrive, take a lesson from Midway and their Nitro shipping system. Also the 4 chamber container was not labeled as to what was what. I resorted to my reloading scale to verify the grains to identify them by weights.
What others should know: Most air gunners know that springers are difficult to shoot well and I'm getting a first hand view of that
Things I liked: Sampler packs are OK but I prefer the H&N hunter sampler.
Things I would have changed: Lid comes off easily and mixes the pellets. This has too many pointed and wad cutters, Better to have a sample of Domed and Hollow Points of varyingweight.
What others should know: A five (5) count samplier of 80 each would be better.
Things I liked: 4 different pellets to try all in one package without having to purchase them separately.
Things I would have changed: "Carefully selected" label is misleading. I'm new to air rifles and the concept of pellet sorting, head size, pellet grain etc. so I decided to look at each pellet. 16%, 64 out of 400 were deformed in the skirt with either a flat spot on one or multiple sides and clear mold lines with lead still attached. 27 straton, 18 exact RS, 9 exact heavy, 10 exact. By comparison my 300ct Beeman Kodiak match had ZERO defective pellets.
What others should know: I have not shot any of the pellets for accuracy, but a visual inspection and comparison to the Beeman Kodiak Match and H&N Hunter Pellet sampler place the JSB sampler a distant 3rd on physical pellet quality. Disappointing due to the label implying the pellets went through some form of sorting and selection.
