Things I liked: Accuracy for the price. These are heavier than a standard pellet but not too heavy to require a high fps gun.
Things I would have changed: Dirty pellet, lots of lead shavings in the tin.
What others should know: Try the Winchester line of pellets as they are severely underrated. The Hollow Point and Round nose pellets are great shooters. The accuracy of these pellets are on par with other brands that cost more and have less pellets per tin. I shot a 1/2 inch, 10 shot group at 15 yds disregarding a few flyers with my QB Chief. The extra weight versus standard the 8.5 grain or less pellet should perform quite well on small game. Only the H&N Baracuda Hunter/Hunter Extreme hollow points shot better. BUT remember they cost twice as much, have less pellets per tin, plus shipping because you can't purchase them locally at big box or sporting good stores. Seriously give them a try.
Things I liked: This is a weighty pellet that is a good value for your dollar. It groups just as well as the Winchester Round Nose and the price can't be beat. Offers a consistent and snug fit in the breach. I haven't had issues with any falling through the barrel. If anything, they need a bit of a push to seat properly.
Things I would have changed: They can be a bit dirty and given the shape of their head they can be a bit more difficult to load (than say a round or pointed nose) on guns with a snug breach but that's more an FYI than a deterrent.
What others should know: These are great pellets for the Beeman P-17 (one of my favorites for this gun), Gamo Swarm and Daisy 880. Given the head shape, they aren't as easy to feed into the Beeman as a round head but they are a bit easier than a wadcutter. They can hang up a bit when fed into the Swarm magazine but nothing that a little wiggle won't fix. Very pleased with the consistency of the groupings on all guns from 5-25m.
Things I liked: I primarily bought this 9.75 grain Hollowpoint pellet for my Ruger Air Magnum air rifle which will shoot this pellet well over 1000 fps very accurately with devastating hitting power. It is also equally accurate in the other three air rifles, which are also used in evaluating and reviewing this pellet. This will be one of my go-to pellets when a shot needs to be taken. It loads in the breech, in my opinion, snuggly without a lot of effort. Pyramydair's price for a tin of 500 is unbeatable. This pellet is a joy to shoot.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: I tested this pellet for review for accuracy and velocity with four different air rifles. I shot five shot strings each at a 12"x12" target with a 1" bullseye 70' feet away. For velocity I shot them over my Competition Electronics Digital Prochrono with the following results: Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 707 fps with a low of 693 fps and a high of 721 fps with an extreme spread of 28 fps. Beeman RS2 Silver Kodiak averaged 767 fps with a low of 737 fps and a high of 783 fps with an extreme spread of 46 fps. Gamo Big Cat 1250 averaged 753 fps with a low of 744 fps and a high of 760 fps with an extreme spread of 16 fps. Ruger Air Magnum averaged 1029 fps with a low of 1023 fps and a high of 1037 fps with an extreme spread of 14fps. Excellent performer, in my opinion.

can this be fired with reasonable velocity from a winchester 77xs at 10 pumps?
