These pellets are great for target shooting. I notice a few damage pellets per can of 500 but hey! for the price its not a headline story. I shoot every day 100 to 200 round of these pellet and never once i blamed the pellet for not being accurate. Now if your talking about pest control??? i cant comment on that because i never shot a pest with this kind of pellet. Overall Excellent pellet for target shooting, good price and quality .
