RWS Super-H-Point Pellets
First off I just bought a new Pursuit 3-9x32 .22 rifle scope. I need to sight it in so I used old pellets I had laying around. I was not getting good results with pointed pellets. I switched to hollow points and the groups got better. The only problem was that the skirts of the pellets where not all uniform. I decided to buy new pellets. After sighting in these pellets seemed to group well at thirty yards. I was averaging about 2 1/2" off of a lead sled weighted down. Only problem I had was every fourth or fifth pellet seemed to fly wide. I hunt with this rifle and I do not want to worry about what pellet I select, so that I have a clean kill. I noticed that all the flyers where pellets that seem to fit loosely in the barrel. I have a break barrel so I can see every pellet and how it sits. I also noticed that not all the pellets seem to fit the same at the front end. Some of the pellets seemed to insert smooth and with no resistance. Others where smooth but you had to push them in with a little force. Some that where tight up front where not always tight at the skirt and vice versa. Tolerance does not seem to be there with these pellets. They claim "Made according to the strictest standards, utilizing opto-electronic scanning to ensure uniform weight and measurement". I was looking for what they advertised and I fell they have fallen way short of their claim. These might be fine for average pellet guns. I don't feel that these are of the quality of the $300+ air rifles.

Super-H-Point in .22
I have found these to be quite accurate in both .177 and .22 caliber in most of my air rifles, but the .22 caliber is what I use the most. The potential for expansion, in my own testing is good below about 20 yards, depending on the power of the airgun shooting them...sometimes further. The knockdown power of its almost wadcutter shape has been very good for me, expansion or not, and they seem to hold their velocity better than a true, flat-nosed wadcutter type pellet.
I will never pass up a good domed (round-nosed) pellet as a go-to projectile for all around performance and long range penetration (usually better than pointed--believe it or not), but these Super-H-Points seem to do very well for clean pest control at short to medium airgun hunting ranges.

Great Hunting Pellet
I have used and highly recommend to have the full line of RWS Pellets in your arsenal. Its a well known fact amongst serious air gunners that all air rifles have a 'favorite' that they latch onto and one of these may be the ticket for your gun!
The RWS H-Point, Pointed and Superdome all have specific applications and weigh about the same which makes them pretty good to mix and match if need be for different hunting/target situations.
A good mid-weight pellet which takes advantage of most mid to powerful spring piston systems. Use too light of a pellet and your spring "bottoms out" and too heavy your spring recoils back and cushions too early...both are inefficient and lend to premature spring breakage.
The only reason I havn't given this a 5 star rating is that none of my guns found this to be 'the most accurate' pellet, but the accuracy was above average and if I ran short on my 'go-to' pellets these would make find choices for their availablity, quality and consistency.
My H-Points when doing testing from a 800 FPS .22 cal spring piston rifle into soft modeling clay actually mushroomed with the head coming apart and the skirt of the pellet driving deeper than the head. I was impressed.
Since my main concern is always accuracy over pellet performance I choose to use my Crosman Premier Pellet as my "go-to" pellet everytime. I've had luck taking raccoons, opposums, groundhogs and crows from 10-45 yards and squirrels out to 65 yards with this pellet. Its all in shot placement with airgunning. Best to buy all the pellets you can afford to get a full spectrum of what your airrifle can do!"
