ConsPackaging sucks but for the price you can afford to buy something else to store them in.

Fun to shoot
These pellets are fun to shoot because they are accurate and don't break the bank.

My preferred pellet, shoots consistently accurate in all of my pellet rifles and pistols.
Shoots well in all my rifles and pistols

Accurate a wide range of low and mid-powered airguns
Despite a larger list of Cons than Pros below, I still give these 5 stars, because they seem to shoot well in any airgun. I'm almost discouraged by that, because it means I "have to" shoot them, and commit to more frequent barrel cleaning. They shoot well in low-powered airguns that usually shoot lighter pellets well, and they also shoot well in magnum airguns, which *typically* shoot heavy pellets best. Amazing.
ProsAlmost universally accurate
Durable construction; no delicate skirts to get bent out of shape
ConsThe lead is alloyed with antimony, which makes them durable, but also makes them foul the bore more than competing pure lead pellets.
Expensive, for a basic pellet
Huge package is the only option
Packaging is junk and prone to leaking.

Chrono tests with new TX200HC look very good
This is my īgo-toī pellet for my 850 Airmagnum it performs very consistently (and a lot of fun). It was a natural choice for it to be tested on the new AirArms TX200HC I have. Letīs look at the chrony results:-
10 shots with each pellet
Crossman Premier - Super Accuracy Domed (10.5gr): average velocity of 779fps, spread of 28.1fps, standard deviation of 8.4, average energy at muzzle14.15ft.lbs
H&N Field Target Trophy (8.64gr): average velocty of 861fps, spread of 27fps, standard deviation of 7.8, average energy at muzzle 14.23 ft.lbs
AirArms Diablo Field (8.44gr): average velocity of 869fps, spread of 19.1fps, standard deviation of 7.1, average energy at muzzle of 14.09 ft.lbs
Crossman High Quality Domed - average velocity of 954fps, spread of 31fps, standard deviation of 11.6
**Crossman Premier Silhouettes & Field Target (7.9gr) - average velocity of 928fps, spread of 11.4fps, standard deviation of 3.5, average energy at muzzle of 15.11 ft.lbs**
Hatsun Torpedo - average velocity of 844fps, spread of 10.4fps, standard deviation of 3.6
The Crossman Premier Silhouettes & Field Target pellets clearly the winner of the chrony test. Off to test grouping now :)

Good value for general plinking
I found these to be of good quality with very few deformed pellets. They fly straight and hit hard. Best suited for plinking non paper targets like cans and plastic bottles. They make cherry tomatoes splatter pretty good too!
ConsA few damaged and squished pellets were found

The perfect pellet for my HW77
I have tried many styles, brands and weights in my rifle and this is the only one that produces consistent results.
They just work.

not good enough
I got these in a sampler I bought so I can't say what the pellets look like in the bulk container my sampling looked very good and consistent. However they failed to perform well enough to suit me. giving 1 1/4 inch groups at 25 yards in my gamo bone collector Bull Whisper rifle. Shame wish one of the really cheap pellets would jump to the fore with sub half inch groups.
Consnot accurate enough in MY rifle

Using these in the lower end Crosman 2100 and 1377 and they work great. No duds in the bunch so far in my first 1000. Shoot straight with only the occasional flyers (could be me or the gun too?). Like them a lot, though have not used other brands, nor do I feel I need to with these. Just target shooting in the back yard with paper targets and some very upset aluminum cans. Hint: put some water at the bottom of the cans and they stay in place nicely (16 oz cans are my choice).
ProsGood pellets, no duds so far.
ConsNone to date.

These pellets are extremely accurate and fit very well in my Crosman 2100. They hit hard and fast and could also be used for hunting if used with a powerful gun capable of delivering an accurate shot. The pellet count is great and so is the price.

Better than average
Crosman uses their initial new die's to make their boxed pellets. As the die wears it will eventually be used to make the economy tinned pellets that can also be mixed with other die's. The underside of the box will indicate manufacture date and die used, this helps to ensure you get consistent results. All that said, the pellets shoot well in many guns. They have a reputation to foul bore's though if shot beyond 900 fps. In general, I consider it a lucky thing if I have a rifle that can group these. With .177, they can be a bargain compared to H&N or JSB's.
ProsReasonably priced when purchased in bulk. Shoot good in a wide variety of guns.
ConsA bit dirty with mold release agent at times. The thick skirt doesn't work as well with some PCP's and Gas guns. No head size choices, not keeping up with the times.

Crossman Premier - No need to look further
With airguns shooting greater that 500 FPS, accuracy is determined by the quality of the pellet. I have tried a number of pellets the Crossman Premier pellets (both round nose and hollow point) provide exceptional accuracy for the price. The fit and finish of the pellets are superior to all but the most expensive machined pellets and will provide 2 inch groups (or less) at 50 yards. Pellets with casting lines or shorter skirts cannot provide near the consistency that the Crossman Premier pellets do. I have tested these extensively through a Gammo Silent Cat (1250 FPS) and they make excellent all around target/varmint pellets. These 7.9 grain pellets have a muzzle velocity of right at 1000 FPS through the Silent Cat.
ProsExcellent Fit & Finish
Very few skirts deformed (even in bulk package)
ConsPellet skirts could be ~ 1-2 mm longer for better long range accuracy.

These were slightly more expensive, so I expected them to be great. They work just like any other pellet. They are domed lead pellets.
ProsGet a lot of pellets in one box.
ConsSome of the pellets did not load into the breech properly in my QB78 air rifle. It could be a problem with the rifle and not the pellets. But if you have a QB78 rifle, I don't recommend them.

These pellets are great for the price. I shoot them out of a Gamo Socom Carbine Elite and they are incredibly accurate. One thing that I like about these pellets sit that they fit snug in the barrel which allows them tho catch the rifling better. Another plus to the pellets is there knock down power. Overall a great pellet

no complaints about these, i got 1250 of them and they work very well, id be interested in trying the gamo hunters though considering gamo recommends them for this gun.
