I’ve got a theory: the skirt design is especially useful in PCP/pumper guns as the skirt will open up and seal with less pressure. I think a springer hits the pellet hard enough to expand almost any pellet skirt.

My extreme spread with the sniper lights is average in my springers (about 25 FPS), but in my pump gun it’s within a FPS or two every shot. Excited to try these out for long range target shooting when I get a chance.

I believe the sniper light is exactly the same pellet that was called the "defiant".
H&N purchased the machinery, dies and rights from Pax guns in London a few years ago.
The defiant was quite highly regarded, for many shooters it was as good as the usual JSB offerings.

I wonder if those unique ridges on the skirt are specific to the .22 only or are a new feature to the pellet. I purchased a tin of .177 from Nikkonos sometime last year and the pellets in my tin do not show those ridges.
