RWS Hyper Velocity pellets produce ultra high velocities in all medium powered air rifles. RWS Hyper Velocity pellets sit inside a plastic sabot that provides a snug barrel fit for optimum velocity and accuracy. These lead free pellets will not produce lead particles in the air, in your barrel, or leave lead residue on your fingers.

Good for CO2
Using umarex fusion with these pellets. Astoundingly better than lead and still quiet as a whisper.
ProsEasier to bolt in, but still small for big fingers. Deadly accurate with my CO2 based gun,

Good when they hit properly
Make no mistake - these things have piercing power unlike any pellet I've ever tried. They can go right through or stick into materials that most pellets just bounce off of. That is if they actually hit your target. These little pellets have hilariously bad accuracy. I tested them in several air rifles held in a vice and actually getting them to hit your target is a gamble. Even at a distance as short as 5 to 7 meters they are inaccurate enough to miss a tin-can lid sized object completely. The second accuracy problem is they don't often fly straight after leaving the barrel. I have a feeling the aerodynamics of these is very poor as they often tumble through the air after being fired. Imprints left in targets indicate they sometimes turn 90 degrees in flight and hit the target sideways. Get these for plinking fun - not for anything you need reliability for.
ProsInsane piercing damage. Lead free Good fit in barrel Very, very fast
ConsHilariously inaccurate Expensive

RWS Hyper Velocity Pellet - .177 Caliber
very accurate pellets but i tried hunting with them and the red part of the pellet just barely goes into an animals skin. but the metal part goes through and through. still killed the animal though. but still a very good pellet. also a little trick with these if you remove the steel tip and then are just left with the red part load the red part in your gun and fire it. sounds like a gun shot if done in a field or mountain area. (I'm not responsible for damage to any guns).

I saw these online and after reading all the reviews decided to order a bunch. I have a Ruger Air Magnum .177 and it is stated that these pellets will achieve the 1400 fps rated for the air magnum. I am completely convinced that the velocity was achieved, They sound like a .22 cal. rifle. However, I tried, with no success for an entire weekend to attain the .5" groups that I have grown accustomed to with the Gamo tomahawks. The best I could achieve was 1.75" and this grouping was the exception the the many 4.25" groups with many fliers out to 7" and almost every one of the 400 pellets that I loaded into the chamber seamed to be just slightly looser that the lead tomahawks. They look cool but my gun didn't like them.
ProsGood Looking. Massive penetration!, Exceptionally fast, Sounds like a real rim-fire .22 cal.
ConsLoose fitting in my chamber. Not very consistent accuracy, cost.

ballistic comparison to Exact 8.44 gr.
In a Gamo 1200 fps rifle @ 25 yds. these pellets achieved a 1625 fps muzzle velocity (26.2 % increase), 30.5 ft/lbs of energy with no noticeable change in accuracy In a Crosman 445 fps 357 co2 pistol the RWS sabot achieved 593 fps muzzle velocity (7.6% increase), 4.07 ft/lbs of energy with a remarkable increase in accuracy. The Crosman, 3 rounds in an 6" group @25 yards., achieved 3 rounds in a 2" group...These are fantastic pellets. The only warning is they will pass clean through small game which is unethical unless you make a head shot...
Prosincreased muzzle velocity and accuracy...Remarkable accuracy in a co2 handgun
ConsNot intended for small game since pellet will pass through an animal causing little damage...

Sloppy Breach Fit
Don't like these at all for my rws 48. Some pellets just fall out of the breach. Accuracy is all over the place also. Maybe better suited for low velocity air rifles an pistols
ConsInaccurate Sloppy fit that falls out of breach.

rws hyper pellet
Fast, accurate, and looks cool. Did anyone notice the plastic build up on your barrel riffling? Its a real treat to get out.
ProsFast, deep penetration, and accurate.
ConsCleaning barrel after using these. I wouldn't recommend these on any expensive air riffle unless you want to replace your barrel.

Although they look fancy and pretty expensive, they aren't going to be the best buy for you. But it all depends on what you're looking for. This bullet leaves your barrel super fast that it breaks the speed of sound, but that doesn't mean greater impact. I shot a squirrel and it paused after being in a full sprint. It looked like it paralyzed it and then I finished it off with a crosman hollow point. Overall, I would say it's good for shooting small little birds. But for raccoons and big pests of that size, it's a no go. Also does not fit in some pistol magazines.
ProsFast, nice design, and intimidating sound.
ConsLoudness, durability, power, and cost.

RWS Hyper Velocity Pellets
These pellets are hard hitting and also very accurate in my Gamo Hornet.

Accurate and Well Made
(RWS Model P350) Generally at 25 - 30 yards, I have pit these against layers of cardboard, water jugs, and thin sheet metal targets (license plate thin). In every case these pellets performed as expected or better. I found them to be extremely accurate and capable of good penetration. The water jug stops the sabot but the pellet portion went right through. The entire projectile zipped through the sheet metal leaving the same hole as a one piece pellet. Thought these would be gimmicky but they are very well made.
ProsAccurate Well Made

Not sure what others are shooting, but if you aim and you hit the target, it goes down. Aim for the heart, down it goes. No if's ands or buts, it goes down!
December 20, 2011
novel item....but why?
Well manufactured. Groups are dime sized at 30m. 100% of them have punched tough 1in pine board with my cfx at point blank. No real hunting use, but who would buy them for that purpose? Buy em if you want to ..... Hmm...put small holes in stuff.
ProsDifferent concept in pellets. Depth of impact.
ConsMass, knock down power.

Best pellets! When it hits targets, the plastic stays back and launches the pellet deeper!

rws hyper velocity
Shot 10 rounds at 30-40 feet all within a 1inch group. Target small box filled with worn out jeans 6 inches thick pellet penetrated atleast 3 inches into material. not sure how they work for pest control.

VERY FAST, super accurate and very peircing, i shot through a picket fence went into the neighbors yard, hit their pond, then killed their fish! It is costly ,yes, but worth it.

Hyper Velocity pellet
I ordered these pellets in .177 and .22 caliber. I love them but only if I shoot them in my rifles of at lest 800 fps.
January 17, 2011
This is another pellet I rate as a pellet that has no practical use. I revited this with a parafin ballistics target. Yes it was faster, yes the metal part penetrated at least 1 1/2 inch into the target. I didn't like having to dodge the orange sabot that ricocheted around the room after it hit the target. If I was shooting squirrel this would not be a fatal shot. It would create a painfully crippling wound but doubtfully fatal unless you hit it perfectly in the heart. If you need a pellet, it would be best not to use these. I'd call these dangerous but not lethal.
December 17, 2010
I tried very hard to take these seriously, but unless you are coating these with a highly toxic poison such as ricin, don't count on killing much with them. The metal separates from the plastic on impact and penetrates fairly far in the target, but it's so tiny of a projectile you might as well have given that grounhog an immunization. He will run away laughing at you. You are better off with something with more mass and less "toy".

These things are really aacurate. More consistant than lead or PBA. The metal projectile is hard won't mushroom on impact. May be a negative for hunting. But at a target for fun there spot on. They do sound a little different. Speed maybe, plastic maybe or both?
August 16, 2010
Definitely higher velocity and accuracy for me. (Benjamin HB17 pistol) Shooting at larger rodents, it appears that the small point travels right through the body without causing much damage. Head shot a must. Love these pellets.

Pros and cons
Okay , let me first say that this pellet gave me the results I wanted and that is PENETRATION!!!! These pellets completely penetrated an average 1" x 4" with enough energy left over to penetrate the picket fence behind and keep on going. And yes these pellets are as loud as you may have heard. They definitely get the neighbors attention.The only problem I have with these is that they do not deform on impact and therefore do not cause immediate incapacitation on game,i.e.-squirrels.They shrug off multiple hits.
March 23, 2010
Holy crap, they should call these rimfire, they sound like a .22 compared to regular pellets, accurate beyond anything that I would have thought possible for traveling supersonic..

i love these pellets there are great, very accurate, great penetration, haven't used them for hunting yet but sure there will go good, have some mice to get rid of these pellets will work great for them

I have been using these pellets for a while and they are great i really like how they fit snug in the barrel, they are also really accurate and powerful. They are a 9/10 in my book.
do these only work on break barrel rifles or can I use them in a multi-pump fixed barrel rifle?
does the orange stay in your barrel?
what velocity does it reach up to?
