Has anyone else had this issue with Crosman Pellets.

I bought a couple of 1250 packs (comes in a small milk type carton) of Crosman .177 Wadcutter pellets last year at Cabela's. All others were OK. Opened last carton recently. Finding that approx. 1/2 of the pellets are .177 hollow points, and 1/2 are wadcutters (with one super point in mix).

Anyone else find this?

Mostly do target shooting, almost zero hunting. I usually only use flat head wadcutter pellets. Never used .177 Crosman hollow points. Anyone want to comment on how they are for target shooting, (i.e. are they as accurate) and are they OK for pellet belts like in the Sig's, now that I have about 600 to use up.

I do target shoot with .22 Crosman hollow points in my Crosman 99, but I only use them because flat head pellets can jam going into in the loading chamber. And Walmarts in the USA sell Crosman .22 cal. Hollow Points 500 tins at a good price. Find they penetrate into the backstop more than flat heads, and don't leave as clear of a hole.

Thanks.

That has happened to me before, when the tins of crosman .177 were still 500 count.
Mix of 3 different types of pellets. Probably a filling hopper issue in the factory, with the hoppers not properly cleared before switching dies.

Am now using the 1250 count cardboard boxes of crosman F/T domes in .177 from Wes.
The 7.9's are very consistent. Hopefully have time tonight after work tonight to fling a few mag fulls of the 10.5 gr at the 12 M backstop with the Artemis pumper...
