Check out the link here.  Have any of you guys used these before?  Reviewers say they are super fun.  One reviewer stated to weight them by super-gluing a BB in the tail for added accuracy and stability.  If they work out, I plan to utilize them at a Schutzenfest I'm entering - it's a German shooting competition traditionally associated with Oktoberfest.  Gimmicks are customary with many "events".  Last year, the final round was to invoke maximum damage on a vinyl LP "33" with only 5 shots - most fragmentation wins!  😀 

If any of you have used them, may I ask:  Will the plastic leave a residue in my Vigilante barrel (~435 fps via CO2)?  Is the BB idea bogus or good thinking?  These pellets are really light at 3.5gr.

Go in peace people!

Wow - very interesting. Just for kicks I may get a few tins.

I had some from Russia. There is a double bang from them as they tend to leave the barrel very close to Mach 1. They slow down very quickly, I measured a loss of over 760ft/sec in 30 yards and a calculated BC of .003. The energy on leaving the gun was pretty low as well compared to a normal pellet from the same gun. But, assuming you can manage to hit something, they do make an entertaining bang. I did not fire many of them so the barrel was not affected.

I would not put a BB in the back of them if I were you.

Don't believe anything you read on the internet. Assuming you can believe this of course.
