I did not find any difference between these and the 777 pellets except for the color and the price. I personally do not find pellets as accurate as powder, but they are definitely accurate enough for hunting.
No, I did not use a croni. I test consistency with accuracy, the smaller the group the more consistent the powder is. I was not able to add a single yard to my range by using the White Hots over 777 pellets, although I did not lose a yard either. They are a good option.
Personally I prefer loose powder, and I can shoot a little farther with this. I would not say loose shoots "flatter" but my groups are smaller.
As the allure of hunting big whitetails becomes more and more a passion for many, we are finding that the recent (historically speaking) popularity of hunting deer from a tree stand is becoming the way to do it. I'll make no statement either for or against that technique here. This will be simply an essay on what I feel are some outstanding rifles for tree stand use.
Before we go even one more step, let's all remember that safety is first and foremost for anyone wanting to hunt...
