Anyone use Hatsan Vortex Strike Pellets?

(1/4) > >>

steveoh:
I needed ammo for my Benjamin Bulldog and could not find any JSB’s, but I did find Hatsan Vortex Strike pellets in .35. Price was right, but I’m wondering if anyone is using these things?

I ordered from Amazon well aware that Amazon couldn’t pack a box if their life depended on it. I knew I’d have to put up with a certain amount of damage. Looks like the dents in the tins was about it. Knock on wood.

Looking in the tins I find tons of dirty bits of lead shavings. Hmmm. Also the skirts are a bit ragged.

Until I can find the bullet molds I’m looking for or JSB sends out more pellets, this is it.

Just curious,  Have you seen these?

I have a sample he sent along with some cast slugs I had bought from him.  They look better than the Vortex pellets.  I never rememberd to shoot these out of my Bulldog.  Kept forgetting to bring them along!

I actually have some of his slugs and pellets. The quality is severely lacking. I got a batch of slugs that were so wrinkled and with voids they went into my melt box. He sent me replacements but they were terrible also.

Maybe the picture is distorted but the skirts look banged up.

Skirts are all messed up. Lot of trash in these tins. I'll clean them, and lube, then give them a go.
