Things I liked: I like and prefer the weight and the fact it is a domed pellet. This pellet performed with better than satisfactory results when shot from the 4 air rifles that were used in this review. In my opinion the value is good for the 250 count, otherwise I would not purchase and complain. Domed pellets are my favorites and given a choice that is my pick. In my opinion the domed pellets are about as equal as the flathead match pellets. I shoot these pellets in the 4 air rifles that I used for this review. Each air rifle in this review had 5 shot groups each from 70' away at a 12"x12" target with a 1" bullseye, my standard for target practice and scope sighting/setting. The air rifles used in this review are: Gamo Hunter "220", Beeman RS2 Silver Kodiak, Gamo Big Cat 1250, and Ruger Air Magnum, all with upgraded scopes. The temperature was 40-45 degrees with calm to no winds, mostly cloudy. This pellet I feel was a good purchase for 250 count.
Things I would have changed: Maybe the skirt end. Some pellets needed a little more pressing into the breech when loading, not a major concern, but noticeable.
What others should know: These pellets were chronographed over a Competition Electronics Prochrono with the following results: Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 913 fps with a low of 908 fps and a high of 918 fps with an extreme spread of 10 fps. Beeman RS2 averaged 887 fps with a low of 854 fps and a high of 910 fps for an extreme spread of 56 fps. Gamo Big Cat 1250 averaged 941 fps with a low of 935 fps and a high of 946 fps with an extreme spread of 11 fps. The Ruger Air Magnum averaged 1086 fps with a low of 1053 fps and a high of 1143 fps for an extreme spread of 90 fps. Even though the Ruger exceeded 1050 fps, the accuracy was as good as the others. I liked these pellets and would use and purchase them again. I recommend these pellets, they work.
Things I liked: I guess the tin, it has a screw top. Always nice to see, I threw out the pellets and am reusing the tin.
Things I would have changed: Consistency would be nice. Some practically fall out the barrel and others are so big they jam. Wicked headache, horribly inconsistent.
What others should know: DO NOT PUT THESE IN A LOW POWER GUN. Jammed the barrel in my autoair II and jam in the mag of my 1077. They do shoot OK out of my 1377 and torpedo, but not consistent. In the co2 guns they are way more hassle than they're worth.
Things I liked: Reasonably inexpensive ammo, nice packaging, clean pellets.
Things I would have changed: Quality control!
What others should know: I've found these pellets to be excellent in the past-a hard-hitting and accurate pellet. Recently I have made bulk purchases and found the pellet diameters to be unpredictable. Some pellets were large and difficult to chamber, where other pellets actually fell right through the bore! This could have caused damage to the rifle had I not noticed and dry fired the springer. P.A. was naturally helpful in the matter, but as my "issue" was past their customary replacement period, their hands were tied. They suggested I deal with Gamo directly, I found this to be a waste of time. Gamo gave me their standard concern about my problem, but their suggestion to solve the issue was for me to purchase more product from them at retail price, and sending the defective ammo to them at my cost. P.A. tried to make me happy in a business- like manner, but Gamo left me feeling insulted by their offer. Let the buyer beware! Some of these pellets are great and others are not., could this explain their pric
