During my trial of these pellets I found that the pressure required to seat the pellet into the chamber of my RWS48 varied from pellet to pellet, some slipped into the chamber easily, while others required a firm pressure to get them to seat in the chamber. This caused me to shoot numerous groups to be sure that I was seating each pellet consistently in the chamber.
As to grouping: at a measured 25 yards, my best group was about 1" and my worst about 3". While doing my best to keep things consistent, in my best effort to gain accuracy, I was unable to repeat, with these pellets, what others define as a greatly accurate pellet, as such I would recommend trying them in your airgun, but mine doesn't seem to care for them.
Squirrels go down and stay down even with chest shots.
Even took a 15 pound ground hog at 30 yards with a head shot.
I recovered a couple pels from tree rat body shots and they actually expanded!
The ONLY pel I'll hunt with.
I do most of my shooting inside of 60 feet due to scrub and underbrush when I'm going after Iguanas. Now - these critters are hard to kill. I have seen .177's bounce off off and zing away. Punching paper is one thing, when you smack an Iggy with one of these babies, the WACK is LOUD!! The report of the shot is a whisper compared to the hit, followed by the crashing down of a very dead iguana. Accurate...accurate... accurate....one shot one kill the norm now. The expansion is incredible ,exit wounds are really huge for such a small slug, and it will knock an Iggy right out of a tree.
These pellets are worth every dime. If you are serious hunter I highly recommend them. Bernard
The rear skirt and every bit is smooth, concise, and well made. No stray slag or burrs anywhere. I looked through the whole tin to see if I could find a blemished one. None found.
The philips screwdriver hollowpoint looks odd, but it must work, great mushroom on impact. I actually did place a screwdriver tip in one to look at one.
Heavy and accurate pellets. I will be getting more of these.
