RWS Superdome - .25 caliber Pellet
February 26, 2011
I have to give a conditional "NO" as to why I would not recommend this product. First, let me say that it gave the highest penetration of a group of pellets I've tested so far in .25 caliber. The penetration was 1 and 15/16ths inch to the back of the pellet in the clay with a bit of a twist in the cavity. I was shooting rectangular clay modeling blocks manufactured by by Van Aken that weigh about one pound each. I put three of these blocks together and used them for testing at 5.0 Meters, (about 16.4 feet). My test gun is a .25 Caliber Benjamin Trail NPXL. Recent Crony Tests were done with a unit borrowed from the Engineering Department of the company I work for. Our product is speed measurment radar systems so this is one ACCURATE crony. The pellet produced a 602.3 FPS average with a 10 shot group using this gun. The fastest pellet was 625.6 FPS and the slowest was 579.7 FPS. The first sensor for the Crony was abut 1 foot from the muzzle of the gun. The above is all well and great, depending if you only want to hit targets at 5 yards! ACCURACY was the reason for rejection of my approval. I was making a comparison test of 8 different manufactures and various pellet types on 02/24/2011 and found the worse accuracy of all the pellets to be that of the RWS .25 Superdome Pellets of the group being tested. While other very well preforming pellets of other vendors were giving tight 1 inch groups using a regulation NRA BB Gun Target, the RWS Superdome .25 was giving 3 inch 5 shot groups. These hits were in an unusual line that was up and down on the target, not grouped as with other pellet vendors. That translates to major errors in distance shooting. I had a large "cookie sheet" out about 70 yards and could hit it every time by putting the scope's cross-hair at the top of the plate using the other manufacture's pellets. With the RWS Superdome in .25, I needed to pretend there was a "second cookie sheet" sitting on top of the one I was shooting, and then putting the cross-hair on the top edge of that one, JUST TO HIT THE BOTTOM OF THE REAL METAL PLATE! One has to wonder if there is a seal issue when the pellet travels down the barrel. These pellets are so easy to put into the chamber of the air rifle compared to the other vendors. It was almost as if the design criteria was "Ease of Loading" with "Penetration", and accuracy thrown out the window. It's a shame I only have one tin of these for testing because I'd love to find it was just a batch problem with the one tin I've received. Given the results, I will not be buying more of these. If you are a hunter, these are excellent for dispatching game at point blank but I'd be afraid of not getting a clean kill shot on the first attempt. Why wound an animal needlessly? As for the animal, they might prefer you to use these pellets because their potential to escape unscratched from the incident is GREAT unless you're a fantastic shot. Different guns will give different results than I had. If nothing else, you may buy a tin of these out of curiosity to see if I was anywhere close to accurate or not. They do make good "dispatching" pellets and since you'll avoid using them, you'll be likely to never totally run totally out of .25 caliber air gun ammunition. Good hunting and target shooting! Terminous Jim Legal disclaimer: Please remember the people that design these pellets are the experts and not myself. I have no degree in ballistics. What I do have is a brain and knowledge gained from testing. My comments are based on my own experiences.
