Back in the late '80s and early 90s I usd these in my Airsporter. Obviously they were way too heavy for that. I have a Gunpower SSS now,and these deliver a terrific punch. Out of the tin they are accurate up to 25m,shiny. I remember them being dull back then. They really require cleaning to deliver to 60m with the SSS. Hard hitting, and are comparible with the H&N Barracuda when washed and lubed. (read more)

The bisley Magnum .22 pellets is not the best for 12 ft lbs rifles becasue they are too heavy. The weight is 1.4g, the best weight I have found is around 0.9g.
The way to find out the best pellet for your gun is to use the same brand name for a couple of hundred shots and when you test different brand names tune the scope again.
The Bisley Magnum pellets are not too bad but a waste of money, I can make better shots with a cheaper brand with my HW97K 12 ft lbs. I can put pellets on pellets in... (read more)

Outstanding pellet, use them with the air arms s410 .177, got it chronod other day was shootin these babies at 11.4 ft/lb, burying in wooden posts even at 55 yds. Wouldnt use nothing else after using the heavy pellets. You can read reviews all you like but the best way is to try the Bisley Magnum for yourself. (read more)

I use a tuned bsa supersport .22 12ft/lbs rifle for hunting, it loves these Bisley Magnum pellets. b4 i tried them i would read that they wernt the best in 12 ft/lbs but i decided to get a few tins as my local gunsmith recomended them for the supersport. i devide the tin of 200 in 2 and spray napier pellet lube once on each batch. after a zero-ing session (i must admit took longer than usual) the pellets were hittin on the money shot after shot at 30 - 40 yards. i like that they dont...

I like these pellets a lot, I use a 12ftllb AA s200 .177 calibre. Beyond 40 metre they drop too much for my power/scope combination, but within this range they inspire total confidence. If flopsy gets it in the head then flopsy is dead before he knows it, and the accuracy is such that head shots are as reliable as they're going to be. I could probably increase my range with a lighter pellet but I worry that that would increase the risk of over penetration at short ranges and would have less... (read more)

The main reason I like the Bisley Magnum pellets so much is accuracy and ballistic coefficient. The ballistic coefficient is how good the pellet delivers its energy to the target, i.e. killing power. I have tried numerous pellets and I have found none as effective as a hunting pellet. The accuracy is quite good although there are pellets that are equally accurate and more but they are worth nothing as hunting pellets. Their crush resistancy make them much more easy to handle in hunting... (read more)

The Bisley Magnum is a great pellet for rabbits or anything. All same shape - no deformed ones, a 12lbf gun struggles a little with these though. Great for FAC guns (read more)

I'll just get straight to the point, Bisley Magnum pellets are excellent. I had a webley stingray for 6 months and I thought that the rifle was really underperforming until I tried these at 30 yards and grouped a 5 shot 0.55 incher. Then I took it hunting and it got me many kills extremely humanely, especially good for squirrels. Try them. (read more)

Bisley Magnum are excellent pellets!
I use them in my .22 rapid 7 running at 28ftlbs and in my .22 career 707 running at 65 ft lbs both of which I get excellent groups.
I also found that they would be quite accurate in my 12 ftlb .177 daystate harrierX.
If you need heavier, use Ely magnums not as accurate but lots more stopping power. (read more)

The Bisley Magnum: Same pellet, different gun.
I was a bit let down when I tested Bismags in my Lightning E, but when I ordered my Theoben Rapid I was told to have a go at them.
At 30ftlbs they fly nice and flat and they are clocking over 800fps so you get a lot more knock down power.
With a zero of 45 yards I was making 15mm groups off a Harris bipod with ease, sometimes less, the only thing is that it leads you to think about things to make all the time as they wreck anything you hit after... (read more)

Personally I didnt like these Bisley Magnum pellets but Ill try to stay on neutral ground.
These pellets are an accurate, heavy and extremely hard hitting pellet weighing in at 21 grains, I would describe them as being a pointed head pellet, but other may call them domed, they are very long compared other pellets, and some might have problems with getting them into magazines.
They are designed for FAC power and when used at 20ftlb and up they are devastating on all quarry from starlings to... (read more)
