#1.Haendler & Natermann H&N Hornet
When it comes to the best hunting pellets, the Haendler & Natermann H&N Hornet is one of our favorites. This particular hunting pellet is extremely accurate and quite hard-hitting. Although it is quite expensive, we think that it is definitely worth the steep price tag. Each pellet has pretty consistent uniformity and they have excellent build quality and control.
These are pretty much good for games of all sizes and good for long ranges as well. However, we recommend them for small to medium-sized games. As far as we can tell, they offer the best penetration. We just urge you to be careful as these pellets can definitely do some serious damage. Even without a perfect hit, these pellets can take down small animals without a problem.
#2.Crosman Field Hunting Pellets
Next, we have the Crosman Field Hunting Pellets, which are the best hunting pellets when it comes to long-range shooting. These pellets weigh in at 7.4 grains and each cartoon comes with 1250 pellets. With the right sort of rifle, these pellets are pretty much unstoppable. They can take down small games at very long distances with a fair amount of accuracy with ease.
While of course, real ammo will have way more accuracy, for what it is worth we are pretty happy with the outcome and accuracy. Also, they are quite inexpensive, so feel free to shoot them around. So in general, what we are trying to say is that it is these are tremendous value for the money, but just keep your expectations a bit low when it comes to accuracy.
#3.Gamo AirStar Hunting Pellet
For those looking for the best hunting pellets, the Gamo AirStar Hunting Pellet is a great option. We really like it because it has a hollow skirt, which gives it a lot of flight stability and improved accuracy. Overall, the standout feature of this hunting pellet is that it has a non-lead hard steel core and a 6-blade design, which basically helps increase terminal impact energy and is great for performance.
Although it is quite lethal and non-toxic, we think the performance really only shines on a pretty good quality air rifle. One of those cheap pump action ones just won’t cut it with these pellets. All in all, we think that these hunting pellets are fast and decently accurate. And they are pretty consistently made such that you will get uniform quality throughout every batch.
#4.Predator Polymag .177 Cal Hunting Pellets
Another great option for hunting pellets is the Predator Polymag, which has a hollow head design and an extremely sharp polybag tip. They are 8 grains and have very good accuracy and take down. We think that what separates the Predator Polymag from the rest of the competition is accuracy and consistency. With these pellets, you can pretty much the same shot every time with little or no deviation.
If this is something you are looking for, then by any means the Predator Polymag is the right pellet for you. They may not have the best range and are not the cheapest pellets, but boy they are accurate. Also, as a nice cherry on top, at 8 grains, the knockdown power is pretty impressive. Overall, we are very happy with the performance of these pellets.
#5.Benjamin Discovery Hunting Pellet Assortment
Lastly, we have the Benjamin Discovery Hunting Pellets Assortment, which is perfect if you can’t make up your mind. This comes with a super point, domed magnum, pointed expanding, and hollow point. Overall, we think that it is a great tester pack to figure out which pellets you like and which ones work well for you. You can then hone in on the pellet type and get specifically those.
Also, we would say that the quality is pretty decent, but they are not the best quality by any means. Everything is just average in terms of accuracy, punch power, and range, but what more do you expect. And finally, we just want to point out that it was a bit annoying trying to separate the pellets. They tend to get a bit mixed up and there should be a better way to deal with this.
