Well designed, accurate and fairly inexpensive.
Absolutely fantastic pellets, with my Beeman P17 at 3 ft.lb, I can easily put these straight through a full can at around 30m freehand, and with near perfect grouping when rested. Great for dispatching of pretty much anything, as long as you aren't too far away, and the shockwave provides an instant kill. At sub 30m, they're great for targets, though the occasional one goes slightly astray.
There does seem to be some discrepancy between the .177 and .22 pellets, I use the .177s, and have never found them to be anything but accurate, even with a low power gun, but I know people have problems at distance with the .22s. I can only imagine this is because of the greatly increased volume of air pushed into the hollow point during flight.
All in all, a fantastic all round pellet, particularly in .177.
Well made, and opening a box of shiny pellets is always a better feeling than that dull grey...
Lose accuracy over long range
Good tool for a specific job
Great pellet for short range and high impact vermin control but not suitable for longer ranges due to instability in the air. My spring rifle (HW98) didn't like them though and they didn't produce much muzzle energy so may be better suited to PCP. All in all they are an excellent tool for a specific job - just not a general use or plinking pellet.
Excellent for what they're designed for
These pellets MUST be used only for their intended purpose: Short range pest control. They deliver massive impact trauma, they don't over penetrate and they're very consistent in weight and size. Because of this, they make excellent close quarter pellets, especially for rats and pigeons around buildings. At short range, over penetration with domed pellets can be a problem, but hollow points leave everything in the target. There's also far less risk of damaging things behind your target. Their trajectory is a bit loopy, being heavy and hollow, so working out points of impact takes a bit of practice (another good reason to keep the range down!), but once down they're very effective.
What they are not good for is anything over 25 yds. They shouldn't be the pellet you turn to for rabbits, or pigeon decoying, they're just not accurate enough to guarantee a good clean kill at even mid ranges. But this isn't the fault of the pellet; they're not designed for this. If you use them for the the purpose for which they're intended, they won't let you down.
no over penetration.
