Things I liked: Not
Things I would have changed: Pellet
What others should know: Not accurate
Things I liked: Here is the story no one is talking about: These pellets are lead Raptors. Other reviewers may have not shot Raptors. I have shot the golden ammo and compared the Pro Mag to the Raptors -- they are identical. The Pro Mags are a major leap forward over the pretty PBAs, and Gamo did really well here addressing the complaints about Raptors: (1)They were too expensive, too few pellets. (2)The light alloy bodies were inaccurate. (3)Gamo quality control -- lampooned on this website -- once again failed with deformed pellets. The Pro Mags are plentiful for the price and the quality control is much improved. These pellets are on the level of the econo ammo from China using the "Beeman" name. The rave reviews on PA for the Chinese knock offs of the Silver Bear and the Silver Sting made me try both. They are accurate. Gamo must have been embarrassed that the Chinese had better QC. But that is great because the Pro Mags are equals in quality and FAR SUPERIOR IN PENETRATION.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: The Pro Magnums give the Crosman Points a serious challenge in accuracy and penetration. Are Pro Mags better? No. But the quantity and quality will take market share. Gamo made a great product that is highly effective out of pumps guns like my 880. To conclude: (1)Reviewers claim they are dirty -- no more than the Chinese pellets, just some lead shavings. My hands and fingers did not turn gray at all. (2)These are Crosman killers! $8 off the store shelf gets 250 Crosman Points. Through PA, 4 tines of Pro Mags (one is free; use Smart Post S&H) is only $8 each for tins of 750! (3)This is a really exciting product for pumps rifle users. The price, quantity, and quality will likely make these favorites for shooters who try them.
Things I liked: I bought these about 3 wks ago, because my grandsons shoot their pump guns with me and go through a lot of pellets. They shoot well in Daisy 880 and also pretty good in my crosman vigilante co2 revolver, but surprisingly, they really brought my Benjamin NP Prowler rifle to life, best shooting I have ever done with it, able to group 5-10 shots in 1/2 inch, obliterating bullseye with only occasional flyer at 25-30 yards with Vortex SPARC 2 red dot.
Things I would have changed: Although they shoot well there are maybe 2 of 10 pellets with deformed skirts, and there is quite a bit of lead dust in the tins.
What others should know: If you have a lot of people shooting, these seem to be a good pellet that shoots "good enough" in several makes and types of guns, so the 750 count tin is a good value, and luckily for me turned out to be pellet of choice fro my NP Prowler break barrel rifle.
