I bought the Crosman Phantom at my local Walmart. I setup a shooting station in my garage which consisted of a camera tripod and folded towel to steady my shot, and a stool to sit on. I put a paper target on a phonebook 13 ft from my stand. I shot five each of the Camo redfire pellet, and the Crosman Premier hollowpoint. With my $7 dollar Crosman 4x15 scope mounted, I began testing the grouping at 13 feet. As I've read in other reviews and on Youtube, the first few shots went supersonic. After everything settled down, I got consistant groupings of less than a .25 inch. Some shots went into the same hole. I also checked the phonebook for penetration. The shots all went 2.5 inches deep into the book. I got about the same results with both the redfire and the hollowpoints at 13 ft.
Long range testing still needs to be done, but I think from reviews I've seen on Youtube, that the Phantom will live up to my expectations as far as power and accuracy.
The rifle has a solid feel, and is heavy. In my opinion it could stand to lose some weight. Actually its heavier than a Remington 1100 12 gauge I used to have. The bluing is nice and uniform, and it has an overall nice look.
