As one of the world's heaviest pellets, the Baracuda (Beeman Kodiak) has a tremendous amount of inertia that delivers super impact on those "hard to knock down" targets. The great weight also provides good wind resistance and is more efficient in the higher powered spring airguns and especially in the pre-charged pneumatics. The head is conical in shape, providing outstanding aerodynamic performance. This is one of the top three pellet choices for new airguns. Look seriously at this pellet if you shoot a supermagnum airgun.
