Don’t know what is with other reviewers, but this is simply another version of a poor pellet from crosman.

I have tried them in many different guns. The accuracy is horrible in all of them!!

Maybe you guys that say they are “accurate” could define what you mean. Cause I asked a buddy who said they shoot accurate what he meant hand he said “I can hit a soda pop can at 10 feet every time with them”???? Folks that is not accuracy!!!!

For me to call them accurate they must shoot 5 shot rested 10 meter groups the size of an aspirin or smaller at 10 meters indoors! Any thing from aspirin to dime sized 5 shot 10 meter rested indoor groups are acceptable to good. Any 5 shot groups of from dime sized to nickel sized at 10 meters rested indoors are only fair – poor. Any thing above nickel sized are very poor, and anything above quarter sized is just plain unacceptable!

That said, you must have a very good gun to test pellets! My go to pistol for testing pellets is a RWS/Diana 6 M .177 pistol. It is capable of aspirin sized or less groups with a wide variety of pellets. My go to rifles in .177 caliber are a Daisy 953 TargetPro and a Sumatra 2500 R carbine. Both are capable of better accuracy than even the 6 M pistol. And my go to rifle for .22 caliber testing is a AR2078 “target” rifle which is capable of 5 shot one hole 10 meter rested groups with the best pellets.

Once I have established certain pellets to be accurate in several different guns, those are included in my list of pellets to use to test the accuracy of an unknown gun.

All group sizes are measured center to center of the farthest apart two pellets.

At 5 g’s They certainly do have their place.

They’ve turned my low powered plinkers into shooters sometimes improving aim.

They will tumble and break the sound barrier in my magnums and destroy all aim while at it but they are fun in a high powered gun still, if you have a chrony! It’s amazing the difference a few less grains will make.

I can’t hep but laugh when I see 1100+ on my chrony screen.

These and the 4.8 g Cros SEHP’s are in my opinion as good if not better than PBA’s. Especially at half the price.
