Well made, solid pellets, hard hitting.
Need higher power levels to be most effective
Tried these out a while ago and was very impressed. They did bring the power of my rifle over a chrony down a little but after some tweaking it was running at 12ftlbs again and these were shooting sweet.
Generally shoot about an inch lower over zero distance compared to standard .177 ammo. However when you marry up the pellet and target the effects are stunning. At 10.6 grains they provide very humane kills on rabbits, pigeon and crows. Good ballistic coefficient ensures maximum energy retention at target. Good accuracy potential. Found them to wander slightly after 40 yards but not enough to cause inhumane shots on small game. After much paper punching getting used to a new trajectory confidence grows to extend range. The sheer energy held out to 50 - 55 yards ensures that your target is killed instantly.
Cannot complain about these at all. Very well made, Reasonable price for the amount of lead in a tin. Heavy and very reliable.
