Returned to Umarex USA.
Replacements came 5 months later.
Not sure if they sent back the same package, because these were exactly the same, cracked.
Not sure how one could achieve any sort of consistent accuracy with some pretty big crack/splits on the sabot case.
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.
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...
big pests of that size, it's a no go. Also does not fit in some pistol magazines.
Thought these would be gimmicky but they are very well made.
If you need a pellet, it would be best not to use these. I'd call these dangerous but not lethal.
