Velocity averages 482.2 fps on a 40degree day out of my rifle. Grouping at 30 feet is .80 on average. These pellets expend a lot of energy on impact and continue to penetrate without coming apart or over penetrating. I don't know how it would do at ultra velocities of the nitro series air rifles but for the standard pump models they are very lethal. Get some and get your game.

Not the best or the worst.

These did not seem to fire well in my Benjamin Trail NP, could not seem to hold groups at 10 yards. These seem well made at first but are of slightly different diameters which effects accuracy in finicky guns. They do transfer muzzle energy well into the target though, good for hunting if you can keep them accurate.
I think they are a little expensive for the amount you get in a tin, poly mags might be a better choice.

Great for close pest control to 40 yrds expends its energy into target for maximum shock and trauma

Just like its little brother the .177 these are a pellet to have for small game and pest control. My 1377c loves the original and my 1322 cant be feed enough of the bigger .22 version. Everything ive shot with this pellets is simply down for the count and IMO it just shows what great ideas Crosman is willing to bring the air gunners of the world! Thank you Crosman.

I have tried many types of ammunition but you cant beat destroyers! Yesterday I bought a Benjamin 392 for 20$ that needs a couple O-rings replaced. I am gonna repair it and order some .22 caliber destroyers!

Its greate a lot of shock in my 950fps air rifle and it blows holes in the birds one shot is all you need you just have to shoot the animal like your suppose to and not blame the pellet for your own mistakes like shooting their wing :(
