Go to pellet M-Rod pistol
This is my go to pellet in my Benj. M-rod pistol. Very lethal against feathers and fur. Range is good but not as lethal due to light weight at 35 plus yards but that is getting out of effective range for my gun. Very consistent and accurate across the whole pressure range.
Consnone for my M-rod pistol
Best UsesHunting, target

New Label Higher Price?
Crosman/Benjamin should say what is it about them that makes them better for use in a PCP. Is it because they are in a different tin.....NEW Tin for marketing so can charge more?
Comparing them to a regular Crosman Hollowpoint they are cleaner which leaves less residue on your finger which should leave less residue in your barrel. If that's the case you can clean the regular tin on Crosman Hollowpoint and save a few buck.
ProsCleaner pellet compared to standard Crosman Hollowpoint pellets.
ConsCharging more for cleaner pellets?
Charging more for different label ?

These are fantastic pellets. I bought them for my pcp's but, the image below came from my Benjamin Summit NP2. The picture speaks for itself. 25 yards, 10 shots from my old wobbly wooden bench.
ProsMatch grade accuracy, low cost, available almost everywhere. I haven't taken game with them yet but, based on the way they shoot on the targets, I'm very optimistic.

Enexpensive pellet, but inconsistent in size, and inconsistent groups.
5 years ago this was the favorite pellet for my RWS model 54 in .22 caliber. Something has happened to the way they are now manufactured. My rifle likes a pellet that fits tightly into the breech. The last several cans I've purchased have three different diameter pellets in each can; very loose fitting, medium loose fitting, and tight fitting. When re zeroing my rifle each pellet shoots differently, so it's impossible to attain a consistent group. I've had to pick through each can and select only the tight fitting pellets, and throw the others away. If you're just plinking these are "OK" pellets, but if you want to make consistent head shots on squirrel at 25 yards you won't be satisfied. I wish Benjamin would go back to the same manufacturing company they were using 6 years ago, and produce 500 tight fitting pellets in every can.
ConsInconsistent size / inconsistent groups from my rifle.

I haven't tried any of the other pellets, but this one works for me.
ProsIt does serious damage.

good kill shots

Good quality pellet - holds true to course but slightly higher cost in comparison to the Crossman Premier. A little harder to find locally, also.

Benjamin PCP worth the extra couple of dollars?
Definitely a good hollow point with good expansion, I did not find them superior to the crosman premier hollow points for less money. I was was hoping for something unreal i guess, because they are no better than the premiers. Between the two I feel they are equal. These two are the best I have found for hunting, expansion, and overall stopping power and accuracy.

I ran about 20 thru my Titan Nitro last nite. Excellent accuracy - can't tell the difference on targets from my favorite Crossman Premier - both have exceptional accuracy. If I can't get the Premiers, I'd be happy with these, and vice versa.
ProsTop notch accuracy
January 1, 2015
good consistant performer
I have found these to be consistent in weight and accuracy. The best recommendation I can say is that I consistently order more of these.
Prosgood results and a fair price
ConsNot the cheapest but you get what you pay for

I have used this in both a Benji 392 and a Hatsan 125. I noticed they are a touch snug in the 125. They fit fine in the 392. In both guns, the shot as they are told. No issues with quality, consistency, etc. I use for hunting birds and targets. They perform like a charm in both venues. I have dispatched a rabbit with one of these also. I'll buy some more when they are finished.
ProsPrice, quality, consistency.
ConsPerhaps they could be a bit big in some guns. Nothing really.

Uniform high quality shoots consistently
After shooting 100 or so through my new Benjamin np, I could consistently hit a nickel size target from 25 yards. Gods quality good price. Wish I had bought more, I can not stop shooting once I get started.
ProsQuality and price and consistency

A pellet that is accurate in my Trail NP
** Upgraded to GTR III Trigger and Hammers 3 x 9 x 40 BDC air rifle scope ** I fired somewhere around 2000 rounds of all different shapes, weights and brands. Discovery .22 hollow points shooting out to 75 yards holds a 1 inch group. These are hard hitting on small game.
ProsAccurate in my Trail NP. Nothing else matters does it? So I bought five ~ 500 round tins.
ConsHave not found any.

nice looking pellets
I use these only in my big cat .22 decent groups at 36 yards.
Proslarge quantity. mostly uniform in size no damaged skirts in my tins.

Knock down power galore
I am using the Beeman Sportsman RS2 .22, so far I have at 100 yards head shot a rabbit, and at 50-75 instantly killed multiple others. At 40 yards I target shoot thumb tacks.
I have tried multiple brands out pellets, including PBA. For the value and three amount I target shoot, the Benjamin Discovery is the best. So far I have used about 15 tins.
ConsOccasional inconsistency, but for the price it's not bad.

These pellets used in my Benjamin Nitro seem consistent and hard hitting. Out of a tin of 500 I did find a few that wouldn't chamber.
ProsGood value at Air Depot discount price.

I recently bought a Benjamin Trail NP and used these to break in the rifle. The Discovery Hollowpoint was very accurate once the rifle settled down and I sighted in the scope. I have not used these other than on paper targets but will buy more down the road.
ProsCost is great. Performs well.
ConsOut of 100 shots 3 pellets were misshaped and would not fit in loading barrel.

Benjamin .22 Discovery Hollowpoints
These are very accurate pellets. I can't find any fault with them after shooting about 150.
ProsInexpensive and easy to load.

Amazing accuracy and low pricing make these a must have for your target practice shooting!
I've had mixed results with Benjamin's in the past but these are shooters and can put 2 inch groups consistently at 50 yards with a 4X scope out of my Crossman Venom Dusk and both my Gamo's. I shoot rats that infest my chicken pens with a Benjamin pump pistol and I almost feel sorry for the rats. I have a mil.dot 1X sight on top of the Benjamin and at night using night vision I can look through the scope and the red dot shows up as white, put the white dot on the rat and ratablooey.
ProsAccuracy and consistency in both rifle and pistol. Great one shot stop rat busters. Pricing makes them one of the best bargains on the market.

Benjamin Discovery Hallowpoints
So far I killed 2 squirrels with headshots, but every time I shoot at a rabbit at about 20 yards, I hit it in the body causing it terrible pain. I shoot these from my Benjamin Titan .22. Wednesday, when I took down a monster rabbit, I found the pellet lodged in one of the ribs. I took it out, and it was chipped up badly, but it didn't expand!!! I thought hallowpoints are so devastating because of the expansion and wound cavity.
ProsKills squirrels from 10 yards with head shots instantly. It works great in case the game is wounded and not dead all the way.
ConsDid not expand!
A little light
Accuracy starts to suffer past 15 yards
This is both a con and a pro, but it shoots clean holes through my fence posts and bounce off the shed on the other side and lands on the ground.

Very accurate at 20 and 33 yards
These are very accurate pellets in my .22 Benjamin Discovery PCP rifle. At 20 yards they are right on as well as were RWS Superdomes. However at a longer 33 yard range, the Benjamins shine. At 33 yards, the RWS Superdome groups opened-up to about a 2 inch group. At 33 yards, the Benjamin Hollowpoints stayed tight. Using 10 shot groups at 33 yards I am able to hit a penny sized bulls eye 8 of 10 times. I have not tried longer shots with any pellet. To hold the Discovery steady enough I used a Caldwell Deadshot Fieldpod.
ProsVery accurate and consistant at the 20-33 yard ranges tried.

Benji's in Titan GP
These work great..Tried other brands to see what this gun liked and these were by far most accurate at 25 yards..can't wait to take in field and try

Great pellet for the money.
If you have read any of my other reviews, you know that I Hate ground hogs. They mow through my garden like it is a salad bar. So I blast them. These pellets tune up ground hogs and skunks just as good as more expensive pellet at up to 30 yards or so. Good price for a good product.
ProsCheap and lethal to vermin at close range. (30 yards or so.)

Benjamin .22 hollow points are accurate.
They carry enough mass to take out the varmit you need too. In addition, they are great to plink around in the backyard. These are the right weight for speed, accuracy, and impact. Highly recommend.
ConsAfter going through around 25 pellets your fingertips get colored from the them. That's pretty normal for lead pellets

Like the superdome these are goos pellets, these seem to expand more but it is natural since the Superdome are solid and these are hollow,,both of my 22 caliber guns like em both real well, can't tell hardly any differance in the way they shoot,. As a rule of thumb i only shoot about 30 yards total because thats about the Humane range of the Pellet rifle unless the big Boars do better,, so I keep all my shots within 30 yrads,, The 177 will shoot a tighter group further, but the power isn't good enought to make the shot count unless you're just trying to run a big dog off the property, or shooting a cyote in the rear end lolol.. But with the power these guns has right now even at 30 yards thats a major accomplishment for an air rifle,,To think about it, most game taken with a 12 gage shotgun isn't any further than that..Anyway.. Good pellets...

These pellets are really "Hard Hitting." They are not made for penetration, instead they flat just after impact to spread the energy into a wider pattern, causing more knock-down power. Extremely accurate in my Benjamin model 347 [yes, it's old], at 35 yards I get a .25" grouping with 6 shots. Great buy.
