I use them with a recently Maccari-tuned FWB 124 Sporter. The point of impact is slightly lower and to the right from, say, Crosman 10.5 grains. In fact there is no need to change the scope or open sights setting when switching pellets, from 9.7 or 10.5 Crosmans to 21.0 grains Piledrivers (in my FWB 124). Aiming a little higher and to the left allowed top accuracy with vengeance. They don't penetrate but knock out the target with great energy transfer. Everything caves-in when hit -- even --...

An incredible pellet! With my Rifle approaching 1000fps in .177, conventional pellets give inconsistent results - they lose stability every 2-3 shots. Piledrivers just zing along in a nice straight line until they devastate the target at the other end. Not so hot on angled shots (IE Squirrels) but the best for long range rabbit control. (read more)

Accuracy improved dramatically when the base was flared with a centre punch to fit in the grooves, probably because of even pressure release on exiting the muzzle. Much less keyholing experienced with flared bases. I look forward to somewhat thinner skirt and deeper cavity at the base of this pellet.
With improved stability this will be a super rodent and (very) small game (e.g. rabbits) hunting pellet.
Why not try a plastic skirt/stabiliser on the base? (read more)

The UK Air Gun press have reviewed these Prometheus Piledriver Pellets and thought they were almost the best thing since sliced bread, and whilst they are intended for high-power air rifles, they suggested that they might be good in (UK) legal limit guns too. So I did.
Well these pellets are very heavy and looking at the ones in the pellet trap/target holder, they spread really well, so for use as a vermin control pellet they would be great, but the trouble is that you do need to actually... (read more)
