Things I liked:Accuracy, penetration, range with Gamo Whisper IGT .22 and 2240 Crosman air pistol. I can hit aluminum cans with 2240 from about 30 yards, with Whisper up to 40 yards and still have energy.
Things I would have changed:Have a 100 to 150 count unit. Change package type to tin.
What others should know:Great for sub sonic shooting, also these have better QC than .177 type. Great for penetrating targets.
Things I liked:After several different pellet tests, this one had the best penetration power over everything else out of my Gamo Silent Stalker. It even beat the my heaviest 28 grain round. I was able to pierce 1/2 of pine and was still able to full embed the round into the tree behind the target. A very nice but expensive and accurate round.
Things I would have changed:The price.
What others should know:It will go through more material than you had initially thought was possible. Just watch the price.
Things I liked:These pellets fly extremely well when used in my TechForce bolt action .22 rifle (I ported it!). It should be noted that while speed increases with PBA lighter pellets, accuracy will suffer unless the gun is ported or has adjustable power. The accuracy increased when I switched to the Raptor, and that is all I will use with this rifle now. I tried other brands of PBA pellets of similar weight but none performed anywhere close to as good as the Raptor!
Things I would have changed:Nothing!
What others should know:As mentioned previously, accuracy with a lighter pellet can only be achieved with adjustable power or porting. This is because 99% of airguns deliver a fixed charge of propellent gas that will likely be a perfect match for only one weight of pellet. Shot groups for other pellets will degrade. When weight is increased it takes longer for the pellet to leave the gun (lock-time), and accuracy will decrease. When a pellet is too light, the excess gas left over after pushing the lighter pellet, will surround and destabilize the pellet as it leaves the muzzle. Porting gets rid of this excess gas at the last moment, allowing a light pellet to be more accurate than lead, due to its much reduced lock-time. I ported my paintball tank powered CO2 rifle by drilling a pair of 1/16" holes on each side of the front sight. I angeled the holes slightly forward toward the muzzle. I carefully dremeled off the extrusions with a small diamond burr. Before this operation the rifle only liked one weight and brand of lead pellet. After the porting, the gun was more accurate with all pellets, but especially so with the GAMO Raptor.
