Yup, I use them as an All around type pellet in most of my guns. I've tried the WC's and domes. The domes seem to work best. I haven't had any luch with the wc's out past 15 yards. Domes are good for game out to 25 +/-  a couple yards depending on what I'm shooting. In my steroid Quest 800, they come FAST and accurate.

They produce some pretty good groups in all my rifles except the B30. It's best to wash them first though. They're pretty heavily coated with some type of graphite lube that screws up accuracy. If you end up shooting a few unwashed ones through a known good shooter, accuracy goes south for 50 or more shots with any other proven pellet until the barrel seasons again. I found this out the hard way over the course of a week.

They're CHEAP through Archer's too. One of the best deals around.

I put them in a metal sieve and blast them with cheap carburetor cleaner. Follow that with a dish soa & water wash and they're clean. Let em air dry or use a hair dryer and you're good to go.
