I've been a fan of RWS pellets for a few years now, & the Hobby in .177 has been a favourite for short to medium range 'plinking' in the garden. I hadn't really considered the .22 version. Normally, in my .22's, I use Wasp 5.6mm in my older British guns, & either H&N Field Target Trophy or RWS Superdome 5.5mm in the modern ones. Anyway, I thought I'd give the .22 Hobbys a try in my late BSA (2013) Meteor. This is used mainly for plinking & short range - up to 20 yards - pigeon… Read Full Review

If you hunt sub 12 theses are great for hard hitting your target, rips rats, ruins rabbits, clobbers crows, up to 30yrds accuracy not an issue but getting more and more expensive and thats a shame used to be the ratters secret weapon… Read Full Review

probably the cheapest high quality pellet available. I use these in Air Arms TX200 .22 calibre. The damage these pellets do to rats is amazing. I do have some photos of rats I have shot with these and they look like they have been shot with .22 rimfire. I dont know how to upload a photo to this review,or even if I can add a photo but a head shot on a rat usually makes a hole over half an inch wide (entry wound not exit) I have tried lots of different pellets but none with so much short range… Read Full Review

Not to want to rain on the parade of people praising RWS Hobby pellets - and I am sure that they are sincere in their reviews - but these pellets are the worst thing, with the possible exception of Q-Tips (which I have not tried, nor would I), I have encountered in my .22 HW45. I was given a tin of these pellets as a freebie when I bought my Weihrauch HW45. At first I thought it was me, but that was quickly dispelled when I got a tin of H&N Field Target Trophy pellets. Further I have spoken… Read Full Review

I use the RWS Hobby in my Weirauch HW100S and let me tell you, it's a cracking little pellet. The knock down force up to 30yds is fantastic on all quarry up to the size of a rabbit. Good, clean kills with mega accuracy, what else do you need in a pellet? Not expensive either! Just give them a go, you'll not be disappointed… Read Full Review

RWS Hobby wadcutters .177
A very nice clean pellet , size and shape is very uniform , perfect for paper targets as they are accurate over 20 yards but will tail off at anything over 30 yards due to the flat facial profile and wind resistance.
Although primarily a target shooters pellet Ive found the RWS Hobby pellets to be very punchy at short ranges up to 20 yards , the flat head causes all the stopping energy to be focused upon impact instead of penetrating straight through like a… Read Full Review

I love the RWS range. The hobby pellets I find go well in my Weihrauch HW35 and HW95k as well as my AIR ARMS TX200 and an old diana. A great target pellet… Read Full Review

I like these pellets and use them all the time in my Weihrauch which is .22 caliber. R.W.S is a German firm so it makes sense that they should work well in a German gun. I think that they are very good value for money. The pellets are all the same diameter and I have yet to find a deformed one. They are polished and feel slightly oily like they have been lubricated in the factory. I use them for hunting all the time because they have good knock down power due to their flat heads. I kill all… Read Full Review

Got a tin of these for 3 quid. These pellets look very high quality as they are polished and there are no abnormalities. Unlike other brands I did not find anything in the tin other than 177 RWS hobby's.
Their accuracy is ok, however a dome would do better. Leaves nice circular holes in paper.
Also another note is that when I shot some into wood it appeared that that had to hit head on. Maybe because I was shooting at an angle at the time.
The price of these pellets is astounding. 3 quid for… Read Full Review

This review is for the RWS Hobby flathead pellets. These are the lightest .22 cal LEAD pellets around. They have good accuracy at shorter ranges (20-25 yards) but their grouping gets much worse after that at least in my guns. I shoot almost exclusively magnum (20-24 ft lbs) or super magnum (25-35 ft lbs) piston guns. Whether you may be shooting piston guns or PCP, if you push pellets above 1200-1300 fps they will tumble and accuracy will be awful. Obviously the lighter the pellet the higher the… Read Full Review

I bought a couple tins of RWS Hobby flathead pellets because they were fairly cheap. They were still more than one cent a piece, which is what I paid last time I bought pellets, but I thought they looked nice. Each pellet looked just like that last one, and they are very nice to handle. That makes them easy to load. I have found other pellets to be much harder to load because they tend to be rounder on the edges, but the crisp sharp edges of the Hobby pellet makes them really to hold onto… Read Full Review

The RWS Hobby flathead pellets are excellent good value target pellets at about £2.50-£3, they will hit a target exactly where you want even with a plinker pistol like a G2005 Lazerhawk. Very easy to load and because they are German they work, in a rifle shot by a good shooter. They are the best in tere price range for target shooting. If you are used to using bb's in your pistols these are about the same and better in a rifel (as it has a lot more power and can rip though a target… Read Full Review
