Things I liked: These pellets are a bit pricey, but their accuracy in my Crosman Vigilante (CO2 pistol) makes up for that. From a bench rest I shot Crosman Premier Match 7.9grains, and Crosman Penetrators through my Vigilante as well for comparison sake and the HyperMAX grouped the best. If you like to target shoot tight groups and you can afford them these are great pellets. I like the packaging as well.
Things I would have changed: They are the most expensive lead free pellets out there, I'd like to see the price come down a bit, but not at the expense of quality.
What others should know: Judging from the comments by air rifle shooters about sound barrier crack, etc. these pellets probably work best in low power guns (600fps velocity) like CO2 pistols/rifles, within a thirty foot range. Alternatively, I found the RWS MeisterKugeln 7.0grain lead pellets (@ 03 cents each) are just as accurate as the HyperMAX alloy pellets( @ 10 cents each). I've tried a variety of pellets in my pistols, and RWS has my vote hands down, with JSB in a close second place.
Things I liked: I find these pellets are perfect for use in my Walther CP88 (4" and 6" barrels) and my Baretta 92FS. Even though Umarex does not advise using pointed pellets in these two handguns, I find the length of the HyperMax pellets is a perfect fit into the alloy magazines. Never a jam. Plus, with CO2 pistols, which are not extremely powerful, the penetration from these pellets is great. In tests I find HyperMaxx pellets, used in these handguns, can penetrate steel soup cans and thick plastic containers where dome pellets cannot. The packaging, as others have said, is also wonderful and protective.
Things I would have changed: A bit high priced, in my opinion.
What others should know: Be cautious as some .177 pistols do not like these pellets. My Beeman P3 and P17 pistols do not work well with the Hypermax. They jam every time I attempted to use them. Also, these pellets do not work particularly well with powerful .177 rifles.
Things I liked: I like these a lot and will continue to buy them.
Things I would have changed: Price.
What others should know: Try them.
