Interesting.

I would suggest that 19grains are a tiny tad on the heavy side for the UK 12ftlb limit........but not by much.

Wonder if them come in a choice of varying head sizes? ???

Crosman don't do Head sizes BUT H&N DO, 18gr "Baracuda 18" on Tin. Looks like JSB 18.1 round noise not like Cuda Match semi-point-kinda-round Head that fly true.....Franky

Not really a fan of semi-points......always had better accuracy from proper roundheads.

Some Barrels(Crosman .22 PCPs) Don't like Exact 16 or 18gr  rond-head Pellets but Love 5,52 Barracuda Match (semi-pointed). Hope They like the H&N-18 round-head.....5,52 ?.....Franky

I've always found the 14.3gn Crosman Premier/Accupel to be a really smooth cycler in mag feed airguns, but it appears that the heavier version may not be so good in that respect due to the different, slightly less rounded, slightly sharper edged shape.

Does anyone have any experience as to whether that is the case or not?
