I seen these on the Airgun Source website and thought they looked pretty neat. Has anyone tried them yet ? What do you think of them ?

If they're anything like the H&N Sniper magnums, then they should be very consistent, quality pellets. I weighed my entire tin and the pellets are very consistent overall.
Aside from the JSB Exacts, the Sniper Magnums (19 gr) are the only ones that allow for my FX Streamline's laser-like accuracy potential.

Strange looking pellets.
I will try them this weekend. I don't have the distance this time of year to test them at distance.

strange looking skirts
wonder if air will escape through the small crevices or
does the skirt close up a bit when pressed into the breach

Looks like the used pellets that the rifled barrel made the marks on the skirt...

It's hard to make a soft enough stopper to keep the pellets head without damaged and collect that much for sale ~ [emoji16]

When I saw the first photo - I thought "oh - he's tested and collected one, sure engraved on the skirt but not on the head". Then- WOW - they are indeed, VERY WEIRD.

Picked up a few tins today. Too windy to say for sure, but they seem to fly pretty straight. At 12 yards they were one ragged hole.

The trajectory is pretty awesome, looking forward to testing them out long-range.

The pictures I've seen and even on the tin show the skirt to be smooth.
I'm glad someone will be able to test them for distance.
I had the same result with the ragged hole at 20 feet with my 1322. I'm hoping they work well in my Diana pistol.

Got to shoot a few before it got dark. No groups, but I could hit a pop can repeatedly from 75 yards, good enough for me!

I lose just over 1 FPE at the muzzle compared to Crosman HP 14.3's, but the BC makes up for it down range, with a pretty similar trajectory despite the slower initial FPS.

If you want to try and collect an undamaged but fired pellet.... loosely wad up a bunch of grocery bags and put them inside a 5 gal bucket and fire into it.... The plastic bags stretch and slow the pellet very gently.... allowing you to see what they look like with minimal damage....

Lol...that's funny....that's the yardstick I also use for accuracy......if I can hit small soup cans consistently at 75 yards...that's where the fun is and its good enough for me....I'll have to try a tin of those :D

Tried them today in my Crosman pumper. Actually gained a bit of FPE in this gun compared to the CPHP. Still no groups, but I just hit the same pine cone 4/5 times at 40 yards. It appears to be one tough pine cone.

The BC with these .22 sniper lights seem really good. Again, no measurements, but I’ve got 0.029 entered In Chairgun, and if anything they fly flatter than predicted.

Thanks for all the feed back. So far they seem to work well in my 1322 and my Diana pistol which is what I was hoping for.
