Marksman domed pellets are extremely cheap (I picked up 1000 on ebay for 12.99) and are actually very good pellets. When I first opened the box I could see that the pellets were quite dirty and required lubrication before use. When I loaded them into my BSA Superten, I had to re-zero my sights and I was surprised by the results. These pellets do not group very well but I noticed that every individual shot on a different part of the target, the pellets were absolutely cock on. I don't... (read more)

Hi, I'm been using these pellets since 1973, this was whilst living in S.Africa. In those years, you could only get the locally made or alternatively Marksman in the red box. I always used Marksman and so did everyone else, it's only recently that I have rekindled my interest in airguns(I'm living in the U.K. now) and I have 4 airguns (all springers) and I have a Chrono so I can see what's going on. There are some people here that claim Marksman pellets are of an inconstistant... (read more)

i used these .177 pointed pellets in my old baikal .177 and the results i got were fantastic. i was shooting pigeons and rabbits upto 45yrds. then i got a new .22 Stoeger (Berreta) X10 and i have never put any other pellet through it. they are true exellent value for money. i only payed £7.08 for 1000 pointed pellets. I am getting 1/2" groups at 30yrds and just over 1/2" groups at 40yrds. I would truly recommend these pellets to anyone how is target, vemin and small game shooting. (read more)

These pellets are truly abysmal. I was unexpectedly out of pellets during a long session at a shooting ground, and the only ones the site shop stocked were these Marsksman, which I had never tried before, and another brand which I already knew I didn't get on well with. So I had to buy the Marksman (£6 a tin!). Upon opening the tin, I immediately saw that these were real bottom-of-the-barrel pellets. They were all different shapes and sizes and thicknesses! I honestly couldn't find a... (read more)

It is the first pellet I use when i started to use airguns 35 years ago. Not much changed since then which is good from a nostalgic point of view.
They are not top of the bill but they do reasonably well. Shot them in my HW100 an 77 and they don't tear apart like other cheap pellets. (read more)

I bought these pellets cause they were the only ones i could find. I was extremely disappointed by the outcome. Terrible accuracy, a lot of bad pellets, too much lead dust and so on. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. Only maybe if you have a 50 year old gun that you don't care about. (read more)

When I bought a Smith and Wesson CO2 pistol the shop gave me a free tin of these pellets, I'd never heard of them before now I wont put any other pellet in the Smith and Wesson. I compared them to RWS Superdomes and my groupings were exactly the same. The Marksman pellets cost me £2.95, much cheaper then most other pellets and they come in a good quality, large tin with a screw top lid so they don't spill out everywhere. I definitely swear by these pellets in my Smith. (read more)

These pellets have been around for yonks - used them extensively in my youth because that was all I could afford. Back then they weren't what you'd call a great pellet but neither were they a bad pellet. Crucially, you could get them in a red cardboard box instead of a tin, which saved you about 50p. Eley Wasps were much better but they cost £2 more per 500 (double the price of the Marksman pellets!).
I used literally tens of thousands of Marksman .22 and .177 pellets (responsibly of... (read more)

The Marksman Domed pellet is little more than a shaped piece of lead that is hurled from the barrel of a gun, let's face it, whenever I come across them I find that there are a couple of dud pellets which have a solid filled skirt. Another bad point is that they all come in different sizes, so when I fit them in the magazine of my CO2 pistol, they fall out a lot.
They'd be good in an under lever air rifle since they cannot fall out of place.
Good pellets though, very sturdy but this is bad... (read more)

Marksman pellets are like remould tyres, yes they will just about do the job if you want the absolute minimum but to me its like buying cheap baked beans or ketchup, is it really worth being so tight that you wont spend anohter £1 on something that can actually hit the target? (read more)
