Richard Steiner about  Vortex Strike .30 Pellets:

OMG...did I say OMG!
I used these in Hatsans Carnivore 135QE and OMG. I have the same rifle in .177 and the difference. Man, these went through 1" of solid cardboard backed up with 2 1/2" carpet squares that have about 1/4" of rubber backing...maybe I need some steel behind this...
After sighting using the Predator pellet, I used these and they were spot on.

Disadvantages: None

Surprisingly good, from a company that generally makes just OK airgun products. Lube them with Whiscombe Honey (Google it) and they are MAGIC in a 15-20 FPE PCP airgun. I shoot these out of my Marauder at 18 FPE, and a shot sideways through the torso of a big squirrel barely slows them down. One time, I shot a big gray squirrel in from the front in the shoulder. I went through the shoulder bone, all through the guts, out the belly, into the hind leg, through the quadricep muscle, broke the knee, and stopped just behind there, in the leg. Much as I want my Marauder to like some exotic JSB or H&N, it prefers the humble CPH's.

Advantages: Hard alloy, they don't deform easily. They penetrate like nothing else in their weight class. Uniformity is good, and they often outshoot more expensive pellets in higher-powered air rifles.

Disadvantages: Must be lubed for above 700 fps, or else they'll lead the bore, since they're alloyed with antimony.

Mike B about  Hill Hand Pump-Gen 5:
Jan 19, 2016
Craig suggested this pump saying it was the best, after putting it together & adding 100 Bar to my new air rifle in less than 2 minutes. It is very Heavy Duty & should last me my lifetime.

Advantages: Very Heavy Duty Pump & pumps up my air gun from 50 to 230 Bar in less than 5 minutes.

Disadvantages: Wish the pump had a rebuild kit included for the price.

Absolutely deadly in my AA S510 Walnut. Ragged single hole groups at 10 yards. 3/8" to 1/2" groups with every pellet touching center at 30 yards. Don'e be afraid to try this one. They hit hard.

Terrific performance in my Air Arms S510 Walnut - very tight groups with all shots of a 5 shot group touching each other at 30 yards.

Glenn about  H&N Baracuda Green .22:

These pellets were undamaged, clean and VERY consistent in head diameter, skirt diameter, overall length and weight. This consistency and the quality of my (TX200) provided a standard deviation of (3fps) which equaled incredible accuracy out to 35yds. I've been using these pellets since 2010 and I've discovered that they work best at or below (18ft/lbs). When you go higher than (20ft/lbs) accuracy begins to diminish rapidly over distance.

Advantages: These pellets are very clean and there is no lead dust to breath in or wash of your hands. They're also very smooth and fast out of the barrel. I gained 100 feet per second over other pellets in the same weight range. Finally and perhaps most importantly they're very consistent in size and weight resulting in great accuracy.

Disadvantages: These tin pellets are considerably harder than lead and provide excellent penetration; however, there is little or no deformation to the pellet upon impact, indicating that less kinetic energy is transferred to the quarry. It is for this reason that I only use head shots on small game. In the last 5 years I've taken chipmunks, squirrels, skunks an armadillo and a turkey all with head shots from 10 to 35 yards. I've taken pigeons and crows with body shots out to 75 yards and they were instant kills. These pellets are light and the wind will push them off target. My 75 yard shots were taken on dead calm days.

GREAT pellet! I ordered this pellet because I wanted a lead free pellet for hunting small game that would then be fed to my falconry birds. Using my RWS 460 in 22 caliber, this pellet out shot lead pellets at 30 yards! I will be using this for all hunting situations from now on. Haven't tested beyond 30 yards, but I was able to easily cover 4 shots with a nickel at 30 yards. Fifth shot only missed by a smidge, and I'm sure it was me, not the gun or pellet. That is more than enough accuracy for the yardages I shoot while hunting. I expect 40 and possibly 50 yard groups to be quarter sized at the largest, which is GREAT for me.

Advantages: Lead free. Snug fit in the chamber. Superb accuracy out of my RWS 460. Very clean in the tin. I expect this to be an absolutely potent hunting pellet.

Disadvantages: Not a thing!
