What we have seen so far is that the Dynamic SN-1 and PCP-1 perform fairly well, at least for HFT distances. The Baracuda Green has tighter grouping but more frequent flyers.
For FT there realy is a challenge as between 40 and 50 meter the grouping is not that well.....
Perhaps as more countries need to start using thesse pellets, the manufacturars will come up wih better types and more pellet headsize choice.
btw, polygon barrels perform well with non-toxic pellets, as these are very hard (tin) and lightweight.
I hope the same rule applies to who use a shotgun and all other firearms!

Many years ago I tried some Dynamic in 5.5 but they were useless with wind.

I will try the Barracudas, can you also tell me where I can buy polygon barrel.

Probably some lube improve them.
