Snowshoe hares would be my guess. We snared em in college in Ely mn. We'd eat the meat and use the rest to trap pine marten and mink. Man those were fun times!

The Crosmans, though, are typically the best pellets in our traditional American pump up air guns. The Crosmans also tend to be harder than a lot of imported pellets, so the penetration tends to be very good. Great pellet for the money and you can buy them, anywhere.
Gonna order a couple more boxes of em (got the last from wally world online). I have a bunch of the rws but they have that noise and recoil issue. Penetration was excellent and they looked like I could put em in the gun and shoot em again! Wouldn't think of it of course but it speaks to the hardness you referred to.

Thanx! Those Crossman are domed as I'm sure you know so I'm likin em even more! I'll just need to figure our the drop at various distances.

Sounds right. I think all the heavies are domed pellets.

Doesn't always work, but I find that when I'm right on at 10 or 11 yards, I'm also pretty close at 50 yards. Only way to know for sure is to get out and shoot, of course.

Ahhh now I see, the crossman premier line has several variations. Luckily the box I bought was the heavier domed variety. I've now realized they're cheaper by the 500 ct tin than the 1250 ct box. Had ordered 3 boxes came to $77.14 with tax. Cancelled that order got 10 tins for $64.62 with tax comin. Silly the bulk cardboard box isn't cheaper.

Actually, the brown box versions are a wee bit more consistent in quality, but I wouldn't mess with the order just for that. Just make sure to get the weight you need.
