These pellets work great in my 22 Bullboss. I usually shoot the 18 gr. JSB at 940 fps and these H&N match them shot for shot. They pretty much stack
at 25 and give me 5/8 groups at 50. The best part is I donā€™t have to adjust the point of impact between the two.

They make taking care of my woodchuck problem around my garden a snap. I can set up on one take a lung shot and they move 5 feet tops. With the JSB they would have enough gas to run under my shed to expire....not a fan of that in the summer heat.

I was curious how the terminal performance was so I retrevived one from a 20 yard shot.
ProsHigh quality well sorted pellets Notched center delivers full expansion Accurate as any high quality domed pellet

January 24, 2019
Visually, the pellets all seem dimensionally uniform. The skirt of this pellet is thicker than other pellet types by H&N. Over all the pellet seems to be well made and engineered for its intended purpose.
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.
ProsScrew top tin.

This is a very hard hitting and accurate pellet that has no problem taking down its prey. It is well made and carries a good wallop on its prey. I think it is better than the Hunter pellet with the little extra weight.

Best all around pellet for those looking for a slightly heavier hit
December 2, 2017
My favorite heavier hunting pellet. First off it is manufactured to higher standards than most others while remaining affordable. They almost have that plated or coated look. Much less lead fouling, so barrels stay cleaner longer, and that in and of itself lends for better accuracy down the road. Best used with heavier power guns in higher calibers. It's a very accurate pellet down range. Do not look at these as expanding hollow points, they are not. They do have a deep phillips screw shaped four quadrant head with a mini "hollowpoint" center that really bites down and grabs flesh and amplifies shock noticeably, critters go down and stay down. I'll take deep penetration, insane shock, and better down range accuracy over less accurate, shallower penetrating, "expansion first" engineering any day. Bottom line is that they do not expand under 900fps in muscle or gel, so don't look for noticeable expansion on any caliber above .177 You can mess around going back and forth between pellets, and test your rig till the cows come home. I've been shooting pellets for 50 years, and for the past 5-6 years these have been the only ones I buy. I have no reason to switch.
Pros down range accuracy, hard impact, vicious shock, manufactured very well - less lead fouling, fewer flyers, and fair pricing compared to others.

Good Heavy Pellet
November 3, 2017
I wanted to try these heavier pellets along with my JSB Exact Jumbo Heavies and they are pretty good. Very clean, uniform, and shoot very accurately in my Octane. I wish they were a little cheaper but they are on the heavier side so comparing these to 14.5 gr isn't a fair comparison. I'll be buying these again when I get low. They are accurate and hit with a punch.

February 27, 2017
I've shot many types of pellets through my Benjamin Genesis .22 cal. and these are by far my favorite to shoot. Not only are they the most accurate but they seem to have really good range for a heavier pellet. I can knock cans off fence posts all day long at 50 yards. Right now these are the only pellets I'm buying. I may get adventurous and try some other pellets down the road but right now it's H&N Bacacuda Hunter Extreme all the way!

All pellets are in perfect shape and i have not found one dented /damaged pellet yet...very nice. Packaging was awsome and delivery was flawless. Get you some! They are real good out of my discovery. I recommend these pellets and will be getting more of them to hunt.

Extremely Deadly/Accurate
June 11, 2016
I have been shooting a Ruger -Yukon NP 22cal. for about a year now. I wasn't getting the knock down power I needed. After going thru a variety of pellets I have found that the Ruger's accuracy improves with pellet weights in the 18 to 19 gram range. Anything lighter tends to fly around while heavier slugs tend to drop. So I experimented with a few tins of pellets and have found these Barracudas to be outstanding.
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... 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
ProsClean molding with no burrs or deformations. Hard hitting and very accurate.

great for Hatsan AT44 magazines
February 26, 2016
If you are looking for nice heavy hunting pellet for Hatsan AT44 magazines this is probably the best. Other reviewers often mention this pellet as many of the other heavier hunting pellets will not cycle properly in Hatsan magazines as they are too long. Accurate and hard hitting and ideal to maximize PCP power, this is a great pellet. When fired in PCP they optimize the thrust and travel as fast as lighter pellets. The work well in magnum springers also.
ProsNice grouping hunting pellet especially those looking for Hatsan magazine compatible pellets.
Conslittle bit pricey

I am always trying different pellets of shapes and weights and this is the absolute best match i have found so far. I hunt with these regularly and they are devastating on squirrels. I have fired about 500 rounds. when my son tried them he could not believe the accuracy and knock down power. H&N has my vote.

Love These Heavies!
October 21, 2015
Nice, heavy hitting pellets! When a near 20gr hollowpoint hits its mark with some power behind it, even larger small game (is that an oxymoron?) is easily taken down (woodchuck, raccoon, etc). It can give a lower FPS rifle a better chance at a kill, as well. Just be sure you're not overtasking your rifle. They may not travel as far, but when they hit, they make a serious impact!
ProsSolid punch, good expansion.
ConsNone, really.
By hamee
Very devastating
September 29, 2015
I decided to give these a try in my hatsan 125 sniper. took only a few shots to zero the scope. These were exceptionally accurate, not to mention, knock down power. The amount of damage these do to game is second to none. I took out a small bird from about 40 yrds. the pellet practically ripped its chest when it exited. I think H&N really makes high quality pellets.
ProsI love the knock down power. the quality is also great; I didn't have a single deformed pellet. Also, they they are not too soft but they do fold in when they hit harder targets, thus transferring a lot of energy
ConsI would definitely love to see these in larger quantity, atleast a 250 or 500 ct. tin. I will definitely recommend these for persons who want serious knock down power on small game.

July 29, 2015
These look like precision made pellets, almost like someone made each one on a small lathe.

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.
ProsVery well made, precise and smooth finish. Made in Germany.
ConsNo cons. (Except that these would be good in a 1000 pellet pack.)

Best Overall Pellet!!!
May 25, 2015
Over the last five years, I've tried quite a few pellets from what appear to be the industry leaders. The main characteristics I look for in a pellet are their flight design: Will it fly true down range? Their damage factor: Will it take down a small varmint in one humane shot? Their quality control: Do you find irregular shaped or damaged pellets in every can? Their Weight & Speed; Are these pellets right for your gun, and for what you'll be using them for. You'll need at least an 850 FPS gun to fire them with authority, as their 19 gr. weight can be a bit much for lesser guns. Finally, I look for pellets that just seem to be what my gun does its best work with. THESE H & N PELLETS ARE THE STRAIGHTEST SHOOTING, HARDEST HITTING, WITH A FOUR PIECE FRAG NOSE THAT LOOKS LIKE A PHILLIPS SCREW HEAD. IT PROVIDES AWESOME IMPACT, WITH DEVASTATING DAMAGE, WHILE STILL RETAINING PLENTY OF SPEED, AND THEY ARE SO WELL MADE IT'S AS IF THEY WERE MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR MY WALTHER TALON MAGNUM (.22), AND MY WINCHESTER 1029 (.177). CONSISTENT GROUPS, TOO!!!
ProsEverything you need all in one pellet: Quality, Accuracy, & their Damage Factor!! H & N are the VERY BEST!!! Thanks!!!

My experience with them shows they are accurate and deadly for hunting small game. I'm using a Hatsan 125 Sniper Vortex and a Umarex Octane, both 22 cal. They hit hard, fly straight. My best range is 25 - 35 yards. Very uniform and consistent quality. Fit well in both guns. I've learned with air guns that finding the right pellet(s) for your gun makes a huge difference in how much fun you have. I'm having fun with these.
