I put in an order for three sleeves of H&N pellets from nikkonos, and tried a tin of Excite Plinking in .22. I wish I'd ordered a sleeve. (Murphy's law says if I'd ordered a sleeve of them, my gun would have hated them.)
I tried them in my only .22, a tuned phantom (CS5M22) with a full power spring. They chrono 765fps, with an ES of 3! CPHP chronos 735 with an ES of 10+ in that gun. Accuracy at 20 meters better than cphp. No detritus in the tin, website says they weigh 12.96gr. (why don't they just say 13gr?) At $5.00/250, they're worth trying.

I bought them from here: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Your-one-stop-fo ... 4d023448ff
The thirty-one tins were well packed and boxed, but there was still some tin damage from our friends at Canada Post. (and I thought that big a package wouldn't be kicked around as much -silly me) The good news is that while a few tins were dented, the pellets inside those tins were unharmed. Shipping is $8.00 plus $0.50 per tin. ($23.50 for 31 tins)

Same thing happened to me with an order from them. Canada post so destroyed my order that there was nothing left. Shipped in stupid plastic envelope.

Never happens from other retailers.

The pellets were well packed. The box was really banged up. Canada Post was the problem, not the retailer. The last order I received from them was undamaged.
Yes it does happen with other retailers.
