Crosman Premier .22 cal Hollow Point Pellets Review
The Crosman Premier .22 cal Hollow Point Pellet is an awesome pellet! The hollow point is small but is doing exactly what its supposed to do. The cheap price makes it a bonus considering the 500 pellet count! The case is quite sturdy and a huge plus is that the cover is threaded and screws on tight! So no pellets flying everywhere if dropped. The case doesnt have the weight of the pellet printed on so i did some weighing myself and saw that the pellets fluctuated in weight, anywhere between 14.2gr-14.7gr in weight. Im not quite sure if its a problem with the scale due to it being brand new, but if the pellets really do range in weight, that may be the reason its not printed on the case. I cant say for sure though. 5 shots, the pellets hit at about an inch diameter @ 50 yards. Pretty good with me! Almost every single pellet was in tip top shape right out of the case! I love this pellet!
ProsClean pellets, strong screw on case, cheap price, fairly good accuracy.
ConsNo weight of pellet on the case, if the weight truly fluctuates- that is a huge downer.

Crossman Hollowpoint 14.3 gr.
My P-rod doesn't like these pallets at any distances but the Hatsan Bullboss shoot them okay just not good enough but they sure have punching power that can knock down raccoons and rabbits with good placement any times when you have one that hit.
ProsHave good knocking power.
ConsToo many damaged skirts and don't shoot well for me.
Best UsesUse for small games Raccoons,rabbits,squirels and birds.

A great pellet for the money
These pellets work good in my air gun collection, but be prepared for flyers.. A cheaper way to target practice.
I sort by head size and weigh each pellet when I really want true accuracy with these pellets. I shoot a lot so these pellets offer me a great savings when I want to shoot all weekend long.. As mentioned ... expect flyers but for the cost I can accept this problem.
ProsLow cost, can be very accurate and a great value for the money
ConsThe tins can be a pain to open... most times I have to use screwdriver...

Trail NP likes them
My Benjamin trail NP likes these. I had been using the Crosman Premier round nose 14.3 grain but these are more consistent. It seems the hollow point is pressed into the pellet. They all seem to fit the barrel exactly the same, very few tight or loose.
I like shooting long range over 100 yards at beer cans, or coffee cans at 150 yards. With no wind I'm getting about 5 of ten hits on the beer cans and about 3 of 10 on the 150 yard coffee can.
Prosvery consistent and inexpensive.

Crossman Premier Hollowpoint .22 cal 14.3 gr pellet and Gamo Urban
I ordered all four of the .22 cal Crossman 14.3 gr pellets to test with my new Gamo Urban. The Piranha, the Pointed, the Ultra Mag and the Premier Hollowpoint all hit within a dime sized spread at 30yrds, however the Premier Hollowpoint had better "ballistics". I saw better mushrooming of the pellet once it hit my multi phonebook target. I think this will translate to better small game (Squirrel, Rabbit, Ground Hog, etc) take down in the field.
Prosconsistent grouping at 30yrds with the other 14.3 grain pellets meant zero scope adjustments
only $9.99 for a tin of 500ct.

Greater value hunting pellet ever
This pellet surpass the great value line by far, supreme accuracy, great velocity, great quality and impressive expansion (not as massive as the H&N Barracuda Hunter Extreme) but at 9.99 for 500 pellets, this pellet have set the new standard in quality, price and performance.
Great velocity and stability
Supreme performance in hunting
Easiest hollow point pellet to find in local stores
Makes the .177" pellet real lethal
At $ 9.99 per tin this is a bargain
ConsNot suitable for long distant shots

Not the best
Bought these awhile back and they were decent, but weren't the most consistent pellet. May want to consider other options before buying.

Very consistent pellet!
These pellets seem to always shoot very accurately out of all my .22 air rifles. No matter what brand air rifle I own, whether Ruger, Beeman, Hatsan or even my Crosman, these pellets are accurate and consistent out of all of them.
I've had very much success with these pellets so far when it comes to hunting. They mushroom out like they should and seem to have very decent penetration on small game and varmints like raccoon.
I now use powershot penetrators by Crosman as my primary hunting round in .22, but those are more expensive, so if you're looking for a low cost pellet that will perform well on accuracy and penetration then these are a must have round!
ProsFit snug in breach, Accurate, good penetration.

Good Quality Pellet
Using this in our Benjamin Titan NP's. Quality seems to be very good and the price is a little better than the Benjamin Discovery pellets. Both are equal in accuracy and quality but the Crossman has the advantage in price.
May 20, 2016
This is one of the worst pellet I have ever used for accuracy and consistency! I cant even get 2 out of 10 pellet at 30 ft/10yards to be closer than 1ft!
JUNK at any price!!!!!
Merchant Response:What's the model and age of rifle are you shooting? Also, if you are using a rifle with a stock scope, that might be the issue. Stock scopes are really intended for plinking and pest control within 5 to 7 meters, not for match level accuracy, as they are basically a "freebie" because of the very low cost the manufacture pays for them. Upgrading to even a $50 scope will make a world of difference, regardless of the rifle. Have you tried open sights, if your rifle has them? 10 yards is about the distance of professional matches and they use sights without magnification, as one can get more consistent shot placement at that range.
ProsSome one suckered $10 out of my pocket!
ConsSome one suckered $10 out of my pocket!

My Go To General Pellet
Shoots well in all my guns and is good for all my plinking and messing around. Does not have the BC of my JSB Exact's, but more than good for general use. Always have a tin handy when I'm out and about.
ProsInexpensive-good accuracy-consistent ..... A good all around pellet
ConsDoes not have the BC of higher priced pellets for down range energy.

By Far the Best Pellet
I go through about a tin of pellets every couple months
I have tried almost all of the different pellets on the market and did all kinds of tests. When I tried these, I fell in love. I have used very accurate pellets but they had no punch.These are by far the most accurate with a" terrific" punch. I just hit a Raven at 50 yards with my Ruger and it dropped like a rock.
ProsAccuracy with a great Punch

Very good for the price
These pellets are pretty good for the price. You can't really get a tin of 500 pellets for 10 bucks in any other brand. I have bought countless tins of these and only maybe 3-5 defects in the entire can. Very good quality control on these. I use them for hunting shooting them out of my Hatsan AT44-S10 long in 22. and they are very effective. If you are worried that they are to light (14.7grains) for good penetration then let me set you straight. Out of pellet rifle shooting these at about 1070fps (that is with lead pellets not alloy) I can consistently shoot clean through Jack rabbits at 80yrds. They will also punch through old 1/2" ply wood at the same distance. I have never had a problem with knock down power on these either. They do however do to being lighter start to loose some accuracy at distances past 50yrds. They still hold true enough to hit soda cans consistently at 100yrds. Your just not going to get under 3" groups at that distance if that's what you were hoping for. Plenty enough accuracy for me though. At about 30yrds with my gun I can get 1.5" groups off of a lead sled. But once I through on an Air-stripper those groups tightened down to about 1/2" . Yes I would recommend them to a friend and you.
good penetration and knock down power
ConsStart to lose accuracy at longer distances.
Aren't super accurate to begin with either.

i have a daystate mk4 rifle in .22 cal. i have pellets from every single pellet manufactuer in the world. yes i really mean every single one! i am a perfectionest to the upmost. i have run every type of pellet through a water and then rinse them and allow them to dry. i then use a flareing tool on each and every pellet to make sure the scirts are all uniformally round. i then roll them on a fine sponge makeup pad with just a small amount of pellet lube on it. i shoot one hole groups most of the time. emagine my surprise when i found that this pellet was far far better than any pellet ive ever used. i mean the round head pellet, not the hollow point. chronograph to look for consistency in speed. i have bench rested every type or pellet made looking for the tightest groups. i weigh every pellet i shoot looking for consistency in weight. i first wash my pellets in soapy i find the hollow point is not as accurate.

Good plinking pellets.
These are great plinking pellets. There are some blemishes, and maybe some burrs and slag on some in the tin. Fairly accurate and pack a good punch. Good stand in pellets for the more expensive ones. I use these for common plinking tasts.
500 round tins give you plenty to shoot for a long session.
ProsCheap, consistent flight. 500 round tin gives you plenty of ammo.
Great common "plinking" ammo.
ConsSome burrs and blemish from being in the tin.

very nice pellets
I really like these pellets and so does my Trail NP 2. The uniformity is not as good as some other brands, but they still are more accurate out of my gun than just about any others. They hit hard and expand well. You cant beat the price and they are made in the good old USA.
ProsMade in America, accurate in my gun, good quality, hard hitting.
ConsCould be more uniform in shape and size.

Best pellet so far in my Ruger Yukon!
I have found these pellets to be pretty accurate. Of hand,35 yard shots and open sight I can keep my grouping to a 1-1.5". There is not a lot of variety where I live so I can only compare them to Daisy match .22 pointed pellets and gamo hunters with the bb on the top of the dome. The Crosman's have a sturdy skirt, very clean and a polish to them. When they strike small game there is a loud whack! They hit with authority! That being said with an upgraded scope on my Yukon,artillery hold,and controlled breathing I have taken medium birds out to 75 yards. I'm very confident with this pellet out of my Yukon!
ProsGood weight, hits your game with authority and a loud whack! They mushroom very well. I have a 55 gallon metal drum that I use for a back stop. These will nearly penetrate the drum. I think for a hollow point to be able to do that while expanding to the size of a dime speaks volumes. I'm very pleased with these and they are my go to pellet.
ConsNone, however In the future it would be nice to see these available in heavier weights.

In my Crosman Nitro venom they were awful. At about 15 yards they were all over a six inch circle. They might be fine for another type of air gun but not for mine. I will say that I don't recommend them, however this is more for others who have a Nitro Venom, these pellets may be first rate in another model.
Conssloppy patterning in my nitro venom.

Crosman Premiers Do the job
The Crosman Premier pellets are very well made and are one of the most accurate pellets I have found so far in my new Hatsan Striker 1000 .22 cal air rifle.
ProsWell made, accurate, hard hitting pellet.
May 17, 2014
An Excellent Value
These pellets, while somewhat lacking in killing power, are nevertheless accurate and adequately lethal. I've shot around 300 in a RWS Model 34 at both paper targets and nuisance birds like pigeons. When target shooting off-hand at 10 meters, usually 8 or 9 of 10 shots cluster into a tight group with 1 or 2 significant flyers. RWS Super-H-Points are more emphatic killers and measurably more accurate in my Model 34 at all distances, but these Crosman Premiers are half their price so I consider them an excellent value.
ProsExcellent pellets for the price. The screw top lid is nice.
April 20, 2014
Good for the price does well in my benji.
ProsLots of pellets for the price good uniform skirts.
April 3, 2014
Both my airguns like them
For the price a very good shooting pellet. My .177 & .22 shoot them very well. I have not had the chance to use them for hunting yet, but looking forward too. I have used many types of higher quality pellets, none of them provide any better performance to warrant the higher cost.
Prosprice , group very well without fliers.
February 27, 2014
Best pellets I've used in my hatsan1000s striker!
I use these pellets to hunt and plink and hit field targets and they are awesome! I've been able to easily take out pigeons and squirrels with these pellets. They penetrate targets and drop them all in one hit. These pellets are great for medium range shooting. I am able to hit pigeons and squirrels all at 15-50 yards. I plan on buying more!
Able to travel and hit HARD!
Drops pigeons and squirrels instantly!
ConsThere isn't a bigger bulk item to buy like maybe a 3000 pellet pack...

In this case, you get what you pay for
Shooting these with my Umarex Octane .22 they have very little consistency at 50'. 5 shot groupings are about 1 1/2" to 2". These are all over the place. Maybe they work better with guns that have less velocity.
ProsInexpensive and have good penetration

My Preferred Pellet
There's no other pellet that I want to use (Except Skenkos HP's) ! While I don't and won't shoot small animals for fun, it's just as exciting holding a 3/4 to 1 inch grouping on targets from 25 to 60 yards!
ProsPrice is great! In three years of shooting these out of my Gamo Big Cat .22 I've never had a deformed pellet!
ConsThe shipping charges are more than the pellets! I use to be able to find them at my local Walmart but they are getting scarce !

Best low cost .22 pellet
These pellets seem to fit nice and snug in the breech of my rifle. I haven't noticed any factory deformations in any of the pellets and have went through 3 tins of the pellets. In my air gun (hatsan striker 1000s) there is about a 6 inch drop at 50 yards.

This pellet does the trick in accuracy and hunting.
ProsGood Mushroom, most people think mushrooming is bad but for hunting you need it. A pellet that is hard and goes straight through an animal will not do as much damage as a softer, expanding pellet. Think of a .22 vs .50 cal, which makes a bigger hole?
May 27, 2013
Best So Far
I've tried many pellets now and find these the best, Ive had Many clean Kills from 50+ yards. Would rate these as the Best for My Custom BSA Super10 .22
Great Accuracy over short or long range
April 21, 2013
These are very accurate with my Crosman 1322 pistol. Also, easier to load than others I have tried. The price is also very competitive. I highly recommend these, especially for target shooting.

The working man's pellet
CPHP's really do everything their expected to in my book. They are cheap, made well, and group consistently in most .22's. They provide consistent power on the kill-zone, and mushroom nicely. I really don't have anything bad to say about this pellet. It's downright fantastic. For under $10, you get 500 rounds, suitable for any occasion.
ProsAccurate in most .22's
Consistently used for any situation to great effect

Crosman Premier .22 cal Hollow Point Pellet Review
These pellets are just okay.
Easy to get
ConsHard to put in break barrel
Very soft and bends sometimes when put them in
Not much penetration
February 13, 2013
I tested this ammo using my Benjamin Discovery PCP rifle shooting into a block of modeling clay. I also tested Superdome, SuperH, and Crow Magnum. Penetration averaged 3.5 to 4 inches and was the best of the four. The pellet compressed slightly and the hollow point barely opened.
ProsMost affordable. Best penetration. Excellent for plinking.
ConsNo appreciable deformation means the pellet would likely pass through the varmint, reducing knockdown power.
February 8, 2013
I've shot around 100 of these pellets so far. At 45 yards, with no wind, I get 2 inch groups. They are a little light but do the job.
February 6, 2013
Very nice for the price
At first, I was skeptical about these HP's, but once I started shooting them, I was pleased. They shoot pretty good and are one of the more accurate pellets I've used. They feel lighter than other pellets but that's just me, I think. They fit well in the chamber but not as good as the jumbo exact, still pretty good though.
January 17, 2013
These pellets do very well in my stoger x 20. So far, they are the best out of the three I have tried. I get a 1/2 in group at 25 yards when use bench rest. Opens up to about 1 1/4 shooting freehand, which is me not holding the heavy rifle steady but still not too bad. I will improve with practice. Notice that some pellets fit easily into barrel and others are very tight which must mean there are some differences in the sizing. It doesn't seem to effect the accuracy.
ProsGood consistent pellet.
December 18, 2012

excellent value pricing and quantity.
This pellet is accurate and capable of 1.5 inch and smaller groups at 50 yards out of my Crosman Venom Dusk.
Both my Benjamin and Crosman pump pistols digest these pellets with ease and accuracy. Good expansion even from the pistols. Fired at ten yards into 3/4 inch plywood. I miked the diameter to be .28 inch.
These pellets have contributed greatly to reducing the rat population in my chicken pens.
ProsValue, accuracy, and expansion.

Toth the premier, field, and target pellets shoot great in .22 cal and .177 cal. I've bought more expensive pellets and these are still at the top, If your shooting a springer .22, stay away from beeman silver arrow. They shoot wildly, in a bad way.

This pellet doesn't have the penetration for a medium velocity air-gun. I'm sure it will do better in a higher velocity air gun. Also lead fouling in my barrel..
