This is the pellet I use for short range hunting with very good results. I did try at long range 35 to 50 yards with unsatisfactory results. The 10.00 dollar price is not to bad for 500 quality pellets.

The Crow Magnum is a medium-heavy pellet for the .177 Caliber at 8.8 grains. This is not a scientific review, but some results I found trying this pellet. I have tried the Cro-Mag .177 in the Daisy 880, Crosman 2100b, Gamo 440 Hunter, and also in a Gamo PT-80 CO2 pistol rated at 410 fps.

This pellet is a unique hollow point design, and is well-manufactured with my batch having almost no noticeable defects in the heads or skirts. The pellet did fire from the pistol, but could not even embed itself into a hard plank of pressed wood. With both the Daisy 880 and the Crosman 2100b, the pellet was stopped in the pressed wood with the skirt barely protruding from the Daisy shots and the skirt barely inside the hole with the Crosman. The Gamo shots all blew through the wood, leaving a huge exit hole from one to two inches. The pellets I retrieved from the blow-throughs showed that the pellets had pancaked to about .3 inches, just short of doubling in diameter.

In the field, I used the Cro-Mag three times up against lawn-and-garden-destroying vermin disguised as cute little bunny rabbits. My shots, at a guess, were 12, 15, and maybe 20 meters all using my Daisy 880 because its so small and light I can grab it quick from inside when I catch the fuzzy terrorists pillaging my yard. It seems a humane pellet to use for small game because in these three cases the rabbits probably felt no pain, just a bright carrot at the end of the tunnel…
