I have a FX Streamline .177 cal. rifle I have been using the 10.34 gr. round nose pellet, and they are dead on I can put 10 roundsds at 10 yds. in the same hole with no problem. I then bought the same pellet, weight wise,but in the hollow point, at 10 yds. I had a 1" spread from the center of the target, so no, for this rifle in that class, I don't recommend them at all, stay with the same weight, but in round nose,and you'll do just fine.
Proswell made pellet
Consnot as good as the round nose one's

Hits hard, flies straight
January 2, 2019
When this pellet is paired with the Umarex Octane .177, the results can be very upsetting to small animal life. This pellet hits very hard when fired from this rifle from twenty yards and less. Hits with authority, yet my studies have found the JSB Diabolo Heavy Ultra shock has just a bit more knock down power, while being just as accurate. How accurate? I have hit the white bottle cap on a 16 oz bottle of water that was standing up rite from 15 yards away. I was also standing, and using the factory open sights. This is a good round that will require you to put in the work with good shot placement. I have seen a number of pigeons take off after being hit from inside of 25 yards.
ProsComes 400 to a tin. They seem to work better after I cleaned them with Ajax dish washing soap. My Umarex Octane in .177 likes them. I will buy these again and again.
ConsI have seen pigeons fly off after being hit with this round at distances inside of 25 yards.
Best UsesThis is a hunting round, but the price allows you to plink away.

High Energy Transference
August 7, 2017
I shot a squirrel a few weeks ago with a pellet that claims to be a high penetration. I hit the squirrel under the eye and the pellet went through the other side. Only thing is the squirrel didn't die. He hit the floor and to my awful surprise, the squirrel started to run in circles until I could put a follow up shot on him. Then I got the H&N Hollow points. A few days later I shot another squirrel with the same under the eye shot placement. Not only did it kill the squirrel in one shot, but there was NO over penetration. The other side of the squirrel was completely clean. And this shot like the first was at a distance of less then 20 feet and shot from a .177 gamo big cat. The stopping power of these pellets can't be overstated. It's a must have for any hunter.
ProsHigh energy transference and awesome stopping power. Great grouping under a dime size

I have been looking at different pellets for my .177 rifle and this one has hit the mark. It is consistent and gets the job done. I would recommend this product to others.

Very accurate
January 17, 2017
I purchased these pellets for the purpose of squirrel hunting. I have been impressed with the accuracy. I shoot a Gamo biocat with 1250 fps and was having problems with a good pattern beyond 15 yrds. These heavier pellets are just what the Dr. ordered. I have been able to group very good out to 40 yrds and have been able to harvest several squirrels beyond 30 with these pellets. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars was because even though I only go for head shots I have had to dispatch another round on several of the bushytails. When skinning them I have recovered several pellets and they did not mushroom the way I anticipated the hollow point design to. As a matter of fact I probably could have shot them again as there was no noticeable deformation. All that being said I will be buying these again because they are the most accurate of the 7 brands that I have used.
ProsAccuracy and consistency.
ConsNo expansion

Wanted an accurate hunting pellet for my Benjamin Steel Eagle. Most pellets would not fit in the chamber. my finger is sore from trying to push them into place. Could not get a bird sized group at 25yrds. would get a good shot then be 4-6inches off target.
ProsHit hard if you can dial them in
ConsMany don't fit in my chamber

Best Pellet Yet
March 14, 2015
Today was the first opportunity since purchasing these pellets that I have had to really test their potential. Me and my best friend shot these from 15 to 80 yards. at 28 yards these grouped into an almost single ragged hole from my Benjamin Prowler .177. I have tried 8 different types and brands of pellets and these out shoot and out penetrate everything so far. I was very skeptical about shooting at 80 yards until my buddy used his .22 caliber Titan at that range and was busting clay pigeons consistently. I could not resist so we put up a circular 3 inch shoot and see target. Unbelievable accuracy even at this range with these pellets with 3/4 to 1 inch groups being the norm. Clay pigeons were no problem at all and most were center punched. These completely out classed the lighter 7.9 grain pellets past 30 yards and actually arrived on target quicker that the standard pellets past that distance. Excellent from my rifle. I think my search has ended. Try them out.
ProsExtremely accurate and very hard hitting from my Benjamin Prowler and cost effective to shoot. Cant wait to hunt with them.
ConsNo down side to this product

Accurate and Hard Hitting
March 13, 2015
My wife purchased these pellets because the pellets I wanted were sold out. When I received these pellets I didn't know what to expect. After shooting 12 pellets I was able to zero my scope without any problems. I am shooting them out of a Gamo 1400 Big Cat Air Rifle. These are very accurate and hit with a loud thud. I can shot a 3 shot group under a dime at 50 yards. These pellets also expand uniformly no matter the target composition. I use these for small game hunting and target shooting. Shot placement is very important. These pellets are not as destrucking as Skenco Ultramag Pellets but will do good enough job. I am purchasing these pellets again and highly recommend them
ProsVery hard hitting and accurate
ConsNone so far

Dead On
January 1, 2015
In my Umarex Octane with a swapped out 21" barrel instead of the 19"; @ 30yrds on bags it will touch 5 out of 5 shots, @ 55yrds its within a nickle, @82yrds they still the target with enought energy to shatter bottles or dispatch pests. Every rifles likes a certain pellet, it took a larger amount of trial and error to find these pellets. But it was worth it!
ProsFor my rifle, snug fight, dead-on accuracy, and very consistant.

Not good enough
July 5, 2014
A good looking pellet that just didn't perform well for me. I got about a 2" grouping at 25 yards with my Gamo Bull whisper bone collector not at all good enough for vermin control in the garden.
ProsLooks good
ConsPerformance not good enough in MY rifle.

Accurate & Hard Hitting...
December 16, 2013
I have been doing ballistic tests on several types of H&N Pellets to see which type to stock up on... As a test medium I used wax paper milk cartons filled with water lined up one after the other figuring the body is about 95% water. I shot them out of my Ruger Air Magnum at 1200 fps.The Baracuda Hunter pellets are by far the best ones I tested. 5 shot groups printed a dime sized holes on paper at 20 yards... When hitting the water filled milk cartons at 20 yards the pellets expanded on impact as shown in the photo. In the photo on the tin is one unfired pellet and one recovered from the milk cartons to show expansion. The shot penetrated 2 cartons and stopped in the third which is about 8 to 12 inches of penetration at 20 yards. These are also good for longer shots as they carry good weight for .177 and the hollow tip being small helps the aerodynamics. If you want good accuracy with stopping power then try these in your gun. Mine Loved Them... Well Worth the cash for a quality pellet...
ProsVERY ACCURATE & Hard Hitting... These are top quality... Buy a tin and Check them in your gun for accuracy... IF they Print on paper as good as they did in my gun, then stock up... Do what I did, Buy & Cry Once and you'll have a great pellet for Hunting or Plinking thereafter...
ConsAbsolutely None, These are great pellets. Very Accurate & Hard Hitting...

Knock knock! These are accurate and
December 4, 2013
Firing these from a Crosman nitro (30021-cr purchased from Airgun Depot) seated about 1/8 inch with lethal accuracy up to 60 yards, further on a windless day! They "knock" hard and humanely dispatch a range of varmint including sizable muskrat. I've tried varying styles from RWS, Beeman, Crosman including hollow points, none came close to the accuracy and hitting power of these. Hands down the best pellets I've found and all I use now. Seating is key, also no need to rinse them first, they are high quality & carry no dust or mold flash.
ProsWell made, consistent flight path, hard hitting
ConsNot price, you get what you pay for people, these are worth it. Cheaper than .22lr ammo and more accessible.
By Jay
Wow! what an awesome pellet
November 11, 2013
I was hitting a 2x4 at 50' with my MK-177 ( this is a dangerous practice, I just wanted to test how well these expanded) and these pellets pancake like no other. All that can be seen is the skirt, but when I dug them out, the wood splintered because the mushroom was up to .25". They group just as tight as the Spitzkugel pellets by H&N. When I shoot targets with layers of cardboard as backstop, they sound like they are hitting hard with a distinct WHAP! Even hitting paper and cardboard they mushroom nicely, hence they don't penetrate as well as the pointed pellets.
Prosthe weight and quality would make this a top notch hunting pellet.
ConsNo complaints so far.

great round for prairie dogs
September 15, 2013
I'm using a Walther Talon Magnum and am very impressed with these rounds. Most of my shots are 30 to 75 yards and theses pellets are the best by far. I have tried 8 other pellets in different weights and styles and again these were the best. Prairie dogs are not easy to kill and tend to run at the first shot. I have killed them at 90 yds but accuracy is every thing and and these rounds delivered.
Prosgreat for accuracy over long distances.
Consthe price but well worth it

Shockingly accurate
August 11, 2013
These pellets were a revelation for me. VERY well made, with nary a bad pellet to be found in the tin. I normally use cheaper pellets, so, seeing the cleanliness, and, precision, with which these pellets are made, is surprising. They give my Gamo Shadow 1000 nearly pinpoint accuracy, and, they hit squirrels with a very satisfying THWAP! I also love the fact that they fit my rifle's chamber snugly. No more carefully closing the action hoping a loose fitting pellet will fall out. Additionally, I'm able to shoot single hole groups at 18 yards with these pellets. I am very well pleased with these pellets. Sometimes it really is worth paying a little more for a quality product.
ProsVery snug fit in my rifle. No bad pellets found in the tin. Very accurate out of my rifle. These pellets hit with authority.
ConsAside from the obligatory, 'they could be cheaper', I cannot find fault with this product.

Decent hunting pellet
April 19, 2013
I tested these against Crosman Wadcutter, Daisy Pointed, Crosman Hollow Point and H&N Terminator pellets with a Crosman 1377-c and Winchester 1029-S.

These grouped the third best with the Crosman 1377-c (best was H&N Terminator, then Crosman Wadcutter). I measured a velocity of 432.1 FPS.

These grouped the best with the Winchester 1029-S with a CTC of 0.125 and a velocity of 882.8 FPS.
ProsThese will work well for hunting with the Winchester 1029-S. I found these to be more accurate than the Crosman Ultra Magnum 10.5 grain pellets.
ConsNo screw cap.
