The 2 sheets of 1/2 inch plywood with the target on them were damaged went thru the first sheet no problem.
I would recommend these to anybody...
Buy it, try it,,you won't regret it.
Beeman Silver Arrow. Score - 8. Surprisingly tight groups with no bullet drop out to 30'. Doesn't always penetrate the coffee can and the dent in the can isn't as large as I thought such a heavy pellet would give.
RWS Hypermax. Score - 10. There might be better pellets out there, but I haven't tested them yet. Stopping power is hard to gauge here too. Goes right through chipmunk and coffee can. Such a clean hole it almost seem armor piercing.
RWS Meisterkugeln. Score - 8. Just as tight group as Silver Arrow and Hypermax. Doesn't penetrate coffee can either, but I'm going to assume a blunt pellet hitting with such velocity at close range is going to be bad news for the poor chipmunk.
Crosman Destroyer. Score - 7. Not as tight a group as above, but pretty good and much better that others I've shot. Stopping power? Tumbles in flight so leaves a gaping, jagged hole in coffee can. It does this every time.
Crosman Supersonic SSP. Score - 5. Groups are too large to be useful at anything past 10'. Good penetration, but who cares if your not going to hit your target.
Crosman Powershot Gold. Score - 0. Bad groups, poor penetration. Usually doesn't expand to fill up pistols rifling. No penetration of coffee can. Remember this is only tested on 1 pellet gun. It might be better on others.
RSW Super H Hollowpoint. Score - 5. Fair groups, but pistol doesn't have the velocity to let this expand. Seldom, but sometimes would penetrate coffee can.
Gamo Raptor PBA. Score - 5. Kinda same groups as others with this score. Penetrates coffee can with no distortion like Crosman Supersonic SSP and RWS Hypermax.
The first squirrel crossed my sights this morning. He didn't live to tell about it. The body shot probably would've killed him, but once I could see, a bullseye headshot finished him. These pellets are the real deal!
if you are going hunting bring these
the fact that it also has a point lets it take down larger and tougher game because it keeps on penetrating
i have has the best accuracy ever with these. i can get holes that touch out to 20 yards out of my gamo big cat 1200.
i have used this to hunt rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks- they are devastating on each
they turn the vitals to pulp on the chipmunks and blow right through to the brain on the squirrels and rabbits due to the point
u have tested these out on potatoes to see what they do to flesh and once it enters the first inch- inch and a half are pulp with a trail going on through.
these are a very deadly and effective pellet for a gun shooting over about 600 fps. happy hunting
I can see why these are great for hunting, deliver shock on impact, as opposed to a pointed pellet, have high knockdown power due to the mushrooming of the pellets, dont penetrate through large rodents, causing the animal to run off and die. these also mushroom very well. and these pellets are very accurate, (well 4 me anyways =D )
over all, these are the perfect pellet for close range (40 yds or less).
I can see these soon becoming very popular, or even becoming the, Crosman Premier Destroyer
-Can take down birds, squirrels, prairie dogs, rabbits,etc.
-Expansion is great
-Good weight (about 0.51grams) Perfect...
-After 50 yards they loose their trajectory
-need to come out with a larger pack (only 250)
At longer ranges I find this pellet to be wildly inaccurate, but at much closer ranges It causes the most blood loss I have ever seen in a target. Great knock down ability and won't just zip through a target and let it run off to die elsewhere like some other hunting pellets.
Only downside like I said before is its inaccuracy. And it is best used in an extremely powerful air rifle. I would suggest at least 1000FPS. Lower power rifles just cause the pellet to bounce off the target leaving it hurt. I wouldn't put these in an air pistol, that's for sure.
Overall pretty decent if your at a close range with a higher powered rifle.
