Things I liked: The ability to test various pellets without having to invest in a large quantity.
Things I would have changed: Truth in advertising & labeling...Both the description and container state the pellet head sizes as: Exact 4.52, Exact RS 4.52, Exact Heavy 4.52, and Staton 4.50... My Crosman Shockwave NP prefers pellets with head sizes 4.51-4.52, however the vast majority of pellets I tried of the Exact, Exact RS, and Statons fit very loosely, to the point of falling out off the breech, causing two dry fires. Needless to say, the pellets that didn't fall out gave me 1-2 inch five shot groups at 20 yards as opposed to .375-.5 five shot groups at 35 yards with H&N Barracuda FTs I believe these sample packs are a way for the manufacturer to pass off the pellets that dont meet quality standards, head size, weight variations, etc.slide
What others should know: If you choose to spend your money for this sample pack, be prepared that the pellets may not meet your expectations
Things I liked: Allows a variety to see what the rifle will shoot most accurately. I am a handloader. You who do that know how you have to work up the most accurate load with several different weights and brands for each gun. And for guys who don't handload but shoot powder guns you have to try several brands and types of store bought ammo to see which is the most accurate in your particular gun. This sampler gives you four loads without buying 500 of an inaccurate pellet. These are excellently made pellets. Each fit the barrel the same. Before this purchase I've been buying my pellets at Wal Mart. Those pellets are not all the same in the container. You can feel the difference when you put them in the barrel. And they generate inconsistent groups.
Things I would have changed: I thought I was going to have something to change when I couldn't find the sections of the box marked. There are five sections one empty. But I found the numbers on the bottom of the box. That along with the list on the label gives you what you need to know.
What others should know: Shot each weight /style and found what the gun shoots best. By the way, one of them is giving me 2" groups at 50 yards out of my Gamo break barrel. Much better than the Wal Mart ammo.
Things I liked: The variety
Things I would have changed: Packaging (dial lid doesn't lock at all allowing pellets to fall out, Many damaged skirts(shipping problem?),cut out on top removes any identification and specs, Pellets are numbered,,,try numbering the divided slots (on the outside would make the most sense and the cost of shipping UGH!
What others should know: mmmnuff said
