Crosman Lead-Free .177 Caliber Pellets
just what i expected
well as much as i hate to say it, these pellets performed as expected, poorly. as with most non-lead pellets, the first thing you notice from a 1000fps gun is the awesome sonic boom, from the pellet breaking the sound barrier, right around 1200 fps. however, after trying to sight the gun, you notice that your groups aren't exactly groups, they're more like a bunch of holes from a red ryder... The sad fact is that non-lead or alloy pellets are much harder than lead pellets and therefore can't grab onto the rifling of the barrell well. that is why they are so inconsistent. if a pellet or bullet doesn't exit the barrell spinninjg at the correct speed, it will either knuckle, tumble or curve. (The only way a real gun does it, is because the explosion from the powder heats the bullet enough to form it to the rifling)... The next downfall of non-led pellets is that they are significantly lighter than lead and can not penetrate nearly as far. so if you're lokking for a good pellet, don't buy these!

These are not the most accurate in my new Remmington Vantage 1200 rifle that I bought through bass pro. (great rifle) I had the second to worst grouping with them. They are very light wieght and will break the sound barrier when fired from a 1000 fps break barrel, ( that is where they get the 1200 fps from) and therfore crack like a 22 short rifle. The heavy Crossman Premier super point and Ultra Magnum are the most accurate in my rifle. Also these pellets are VERY fragile! You will crush one or deform one with your fingers accidentally just trying to load it. I swear they are like tin foil! Very fast though and may be accurate in another rifle, you just have to shoot many types of pellets for groups to find out. Good luck, FireFox.

Lead Free pelletes were (in my opinion) not made for a Break Barrel or high velosity air Rifle. You will hit all over Egypt with this type ammo. They will exit with a high velocity and Crack like Thunder when they hit a paper target but they will not be Accurate. Maybe they work well in a pump rifle? i do not know. Do not buy lead free pellets if you use a Break Barrel Air Rifle....! mark my words Please!

If your goal is to never hit your target this is the pellet for you. My rifle is zero'd at 30 yds and when using these pellets can't make a group. Perhaps they would work if you are trying to hit a barn at point blank range...maybe. These are very light and fast though.
