Good pellet for 10m target practice
December 23, 2012
Purchased from another source in 500 pellet tins which are convenient in size and weight for the quantity contained, fitting easily within the pistol case with the Beeman P17 for which I bought them. To the limits of my testing equipment (eyes, fingertips, observation of fit in chambers) these pellets are very uniform in size and shape. They fit snugly within the chamber of the P17. Within the limits of my marksmanship, they are capable of producing tight, consistent groups. They have become my default choice of pellet for the P17, producing tighter groups and higher scores on 10m scaled targets than the more expensive Crosman Competition Wadcutters which had been my previous default choice. To my 10m scaled experience with the P17, they are significantly superior to the slightly less expensive Daisy Precision Max wadcutters, and the equal of the more expensive RWS Diabalo Basics. They have also been very satisfactory in a Benjamin Trail NP and a Ruger Blackhawk. Though less than optimal weights for those rifles, they produced tight groups. While it may be possible to buy equally good pellets so inexpensively, I have yet to find such an opportunity. At AD's 4 tins for the price of 3, they would be less than a penny per pellet.
Pros:Consistent performance at a modest price.
Cons:I would prefer a more robust tin with a screw on lid, such as some Crosman pellets are sold in. In the meantime, an elastic band around the tin keeps it closed. It would also be convenient to be able to buy them in bulk containers of one thousand or more, as some Crosman and other manufacturer pellets are available.
