I just tried some H&N Baracuda hunter pellets today. I must say i am very impressed with these so far. they are super accurate up to 70 meters and at 10.34gr they come out of my Hatsan 125 @  the 1090fps mark which gives me around 27fpe which is not bad.

10+ gr in .177 @ 1090fps... I'd say that's more than "not bad" Nunga. That's pretty bl@@dy good in my opinion...

would the weight of the pellet make it ok for hunting small prey?

Most people say .177 is too small for a clean kill. but at that weight it`s almost up with RWS Hobby's in .22

At 27fpe there would be no problem at all on small prey. My 8.4gr JSB at 11.5fpe had no problem passing thru rabbit skulls for humane kill at 25-30m.

For small game any call doesn't really matter,as long as that pellet landing on right place.I use 177cal,22cal,and 45cal for possum n hare the do the same job,45cal just make bigger hole on they body ;)
NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE EVEN ONLY WITH 200FPS
