This RWS Superdome is a bulldog (roundheaded) pellet which has the same high quality, accuracy, and other characteristics as all RWS pellets. Ideal for both target practice and general use. Important information for California residents
I bought both the RWS super hollow point and the super dome to compare. To my surprise the Hollow point performed just fine;dimes at 45 ft. But the super dome missed in all directions a inch or 2! This happened just about every shot I made. After 20 shots I stopped using them. Airgun depot kindly sent me another tin of the RWS HP that did work for my gun.
ConsYou will miss 9 out of 10 with a Benjamin Marauder.

These are probably the best all around pellets that you can get. It puts the hammer down on pests all the way out to 80 meters no problem with my trusty 34 Panther.
When it impacts, it sounds like what I heard when my mother used to swat our kitchen rug outside with a stick as hard as she could. High polish and high quality. Best suited for 20 plus meters.
ProsHard hitting. Consistent.
Best UsesAny animal smaller than a coyote. Targets and long distance.

most accurate for umarex octane
Was my favorite pellet to use next to predator polymags, great accuracy, great punch , penitration and knock down.
ProsGood all around pellet
March 24, 2016
The .22 Superdome is very accurate in my Dianna 34. It has a slightly smaller head and a slightly larger tail.
ProsVery accurate. Reasonable price. Very good expansion from the larger tail section.
ConsI would prefer a screw top can.

Great for all my air rifles
I own an RWS 34, a Hatsan 85X and a Gamo Silent stalker whisper, all in .22 and I have been using these pellets for all three rifles. 30 out of 30 shots at 25 yards I have been able to cover with a nickle every time. They are very consistent pellets,dead accurate and very well made. Now I will say that they would waver aa little bit till I converted the guns from dovetail to picatinny and put better scopes on the guns.
ProsDead accurate, consistent, very cleanly made
Consshould come in a slightly heavier weight also. Maybe around a 16 which is the ideal weight for any .22 air rifle

PERFECT FOR MY DIANA LP 8
1/2" GROUP @ 10 YDS--1" @ 20 YDS. AND THAT IS WITH A WALTHER RED DOT, WHICH COVERS THE 1" TARGET. COULD NOT BE APPIER. BTW VELOCITY WAS 465 WHICH MAY BE A LITTLE LOW BUT WITH THAT ACCURACY-- I'LL TAKE IT.

Great pellet at decent price
Shoots well in my Hatsan Striker 1000C .22 Springer. Groups well at 12 yards (dime size) and at 25 yards(nickel to quarter size) and a semi rested sitting position. Very clean and well made, no deformities noticed.
ProsClean well made pellet and accurate at a great price.

Good pellet of course its rows. Groups were pretty good. Good hunting pellet but not something I would use for bench at least not out of my rifle. Benjamin genesis.22 but overall good quality pellet.

Do not buy these from WalMart. I ordered 6, all damaged.
Do buy from Airgun Depot.

Hunting ammo lighter critters
Economical everyday hunting ammo and targeting. Sighted my rifle in with this ammo. In between weight.
July 11, 2014
They are made very well. And shoot great in my RWS 34. But they are to light for my RWS 350 .18 grain JSB shoot great and hunter extremes shoot great In a magnum rifle.
ProsVery uniform and shoots gray in medium power air guns.
ConsNothing I could find.
June 26, 2014
Not what I was hoping for
Out of my RWS 460 I'm lucky if I can two pellets to touch. With a 4-16x50 scope at 12yds indoors all pellets should touch. I'm lucky if the group is an inch and that is shooting off a solid table with a good rest. I don't even consider this a good practice pellet unless you like shooting shotgun like groups.

Good Target Pellets
I've shot a few 250 count tins of these pellets through a RWS 34, in which they perform well. These pellets are uniform and accurate, but they are not quite as accurate at medium distance (20 - 25 yards) as the RWS Super-H-Points in my rifle. Overall I'm pleased with their performance, but I tend to use Super-H-Points more frequently due to their superior medium range accuracy.
April 3, 2014
Very good pellets
My Crosman .177 and Hatsan .22 both like these pellets. They was my pellet of choice for target shooting. But since the 500 count tins have been discontinued I will be changing to something else as both rifles do about as well with some other pellets. I would have easily gave them an overall of 5, But not happy being forced to buy smaller tins. I'm planning on contacting Umerex USA ( Distributor ) to try to find out why.
ProsPrice, Both my air rifles shoot them well. consistent groups.
Cons500 ct. tins have been discontinued, Very aggravating. Not sure if 250 count will follow.

High quality pellets for good performance!
Bought these pellets because I made my own .22 caliber pcp air rifle. Looked inside my barrel and these pellets leave a bit of room on the sides for expansion.
I own a Gamo Big Cat and this pellet does no wrong
I also own a Chinese B3-1 underlever rifle and this pellet does well when no other will, because the gun is crap. Anyone want it?!?!
I read a lot of people complain about getting a bad tin of pellets and that's just bad luck. Most of the pellets are not deformed and shoot well. the ridges on the skirt confused me because upon trigger pull the air is supposed to flare out the skirt for contact with the rifling in the barrel and the ridges in the skirt only serves to create a weak contact allowing more lead fouling to chip off and collect inside the barrel.
Performance wise these pellets do well enough where my previous observation is made obsolete and I love these pellets. There are so many .22 pellets out there like the .177 and these pellets are cheap enough (cheap enough on Airgun Depot only because else where these are pricey)
Please remember that this is a 250 count tin. Many people forget the pellet count and only look at the hard pricing. A tin of 250 for $9 is cheaper than a tin of 175 for $8.
If you are ever in the position of wondering which pellet your rifle likes best. This pellet is a must try. You just might find a pellet that performs the way you want your shots to perform while staying away from premium hunting pellets and the prices that come with the territory.
ProsVery well made,
no cast lines,
consistent (at least in my tin)
250 count of high quality pellets
is liked by most guns (even my crappy Chinese rifle)
does better with higher power guns like PCP and magnum springs (rifles you would use to hunt)
Consvery little is wrong other than quality control. Better quality control would be nice since these are quality pellets. A few bad ones really makes the whole brand look bad
March 29, 2014
the pellets work good with the Benjamin Trail.22 cal grouping is good all the time

Good pellet but not recommend for AirForce Talon
I bought these to try in my AirForce Talon. They shoot okay but not nearly as good as Beeman round nose or Crosman Premier. Nothing wrong with the pellet just not what I would recommend for this particular air rifle.
ProsQuality and price
ConsNot a complaint just not the pellet for the AirForce 22 Talon. Only reason I wrote this review was for other AirForce owners. Maybe this will help you pick out your favorite pellets.

While they don't leave as distinct and perfect a hole as the wadcutters, these pellets seem to be as accurate - or nearly so - as my favorites, the RWS wadcutters.
ConsLimited range for precise and obvious holes in the targets.
December 18, 2013
I bought these thinking that RWS pellets would be high quality - wrong. A large percentage of pellets were deformed, which wasn't terribly surprising since the tin they came in showed a number of indentations, obviously from the pellets being squished hard against it. While the overall pellet quality may or may not be good, it was difficult to tell with so many having mashed skirts. So this purchase was basically just a waste of money.

A pellet that goes where it is aimed!
I haven't shot since I was far younger than I am now so I figured that I wouldn't be able to hit the side of a barn with a blunderbuss and using some pellets from one of those big box stores I almost couldn't. These RWS Superdome pellets where so special that I waited to try them in the RWS Model 34 that I received from Airgun Depot at the same time as these RWS Superdomes. Well, let me tell you, I shouldn't have waited to try these beauties out as I would have gained confidence in my long lost shooting skills a lot sooner if I had just put these down the barrel sooner. I've still got a ways to go to regain some skill but these pellets go exactly where they are pointed in my new RWS Model 34.
ProsThey go where you aim them, what more can you ask for in a pellet?
ConsI need more, more, more of these!

My Hatsan Supercharger and my Titan GP Love These Pellets
I purchased these pellets a couple of weeks ago to try with my Hatsan Supercharger. I shot 5 round groups with the RWS Superdome along with 3 or 4 other brands of pellets in a single session. The RWS provided by far the best grouping out of all the pellets I tried. In a couple of minor fliers in each group but believe me, they were definitely due to my less than stellar marksmanship as I have just recently started shooting again after about a 10 year layoff.
This week I received my new Benjamin Titan GP. Last night I mounted the scope and sighted it in using the RWS Superdomes. Tonight, I shot two 10 round groups with the RWS pellets and was very pleased with the results. I had no fliers in either group and I believe that someone with slightly better marksmanship skills than I possess could have easily cut the group sizes in half.
I have posted pictures of one of groups with the Hatsan along with a picture of a group that I shot with Benjamin Discovery Domed Magnums from the Hatsan for comparison. The group with the Benjamins is typical of what I experienced with all the other pellets I tried that night in the Hatsan. I have also posted a picture of one of the groups shot with the Titan GP. Also of note, I got good penetration in a 2x4 from these pellets out of the Titan and the Supercharger. These are not the cheapest pellets around but exhibit good quality. However, I feel that they are worth the price for me based on quality and performance and I have already ordered a 5 pack of 500 round tins. I would definitely recommend these pellets.
ProsConsistent dimensions from pellet to pellet.
Decent fit in the breach, not too tight.
Produced consistent groups from the two guns I tried them in.
Good penetration, should be suitable for hunting.
ConsPrice, these are not really a super value plinker at 3.16 cents per pellet on sale and 4.40 cents per pellet at the normal price.
February 21, 2013
Easy load pellets.
ProsEasy to load and pack a punch.
February 19, 2013
Very Nice Pellets
They are very clean. Few imperfect pellets. Well inspected. Shot well in all my guns. Still finding JSBs to be the best in all my guns.
February 18, 2013
Top of the line pellets!
I gave them a 4 star only because they were not a good match for my Benjamin Trail NP .22. At 16yrds, they were second best grouping at about 2" group. This pellet is a perfect match for the Gamo Whisper, in the .177 Caliber. Holding (for the most part) same hole shots at 16yrds. 99.9% of the 500 rounds that I've shot were flawless in shape. It did seem that some were a little lose fitting and my Benjamin prefers a snug fit pellet. Overall, it's a top notch pellet.
All were symmetrical
ConsNot a perfect match for my Benjamin.
February 13, 2013
Good General Purpose Round
I tested this with my Benjamin Discovery shooting into a block of modeling clay. I also tested SuperH, Premier Hollowpoint, and Crow Magnum. Good Quality manufacture with no defects noted. I would prefer a threaded tin, as it tended to fall open. Penetration was very good with an average of 3.5 inches. Recovered pellets showed a little compression, but no appreciable expansion.
ProsGood for plinking or light varmint hunting.
ConsFlimsy tin comes open too easy.

odd dome shape
The dome of the pellet has less of an arc that makes it look squaty. It is also tail heavy. They do well in my hatsan 1000x .22 for general target practice and plinking. Although, I won't use them to hunt with.
ProsLarge quantity per tin and purchased with reward points from Airgun Depot.
ConsThin skirts seems easily to deform.

Prosthese are very well made pellets,

August 21, 2012
I bought these to compliment my RWS model 34 rifle combo. After initial break in and site adjustment, I can say the pellets provide consistent results for target shooting. Deadly on squirrels. The only reason I rated pellets a "4" is because I have not tried any other pellet in the RWS line up.
ConsCompared to the local sporting good store offerings, the cost for 500 rounds seems a bit high.
July 29, 2012
RWS superdome Pellets
I found these to be the most accurate pellets in my Benjamin Titan GP to date. Very tight groups but they can be affected by wind. I don't think I would use them for hunting because they are not heavy enough for my liking.
ProsCost, accuracy, and group size.
ConsA good target round but not heavy enough for hunting.

Very Accurate in a Benjamin Discovery
I tried three pellet types in my brand new Benjamin Discovery .22 PCP rifle and these Super Domes were by far the most accurate. I was able to shoot nickel to quarter size single hole groups at 20 yards. The Discovery really likes these pellets! They were includd in the RWS .22 cleaning kit otherwise I would not have tried them. I will be buying more.
ProsVery tight groups

These shoot good in Both of my 22 caliber rifles,,
I have 3 defferant types and the superdome seems to get a tighter group, hard to mesure when the paper is so close on the group and me pulling off a little, but all in all they will do the job.
