Things I liked: Accurate out of my rifles, one or two slightly deformed skirts, the fit into the breech doesn't seem drastically different from pellet to pellet, soft lead, seem to be oiled with something
Things I would have changed: The seam on the sides. I stopped buying Gamo pellets years ago because every pellet had a wing for a seam on both sides, and the shapes weren't very uniform. These are much cleaner but the lines are still obvious
What others should know: I only bought these because my Polymags are running low and I saw them on the shelf locally, and noticed Gamo was doing a better job getting those seam lines off of their pellets. In the hand they feel similar to HN pellets, like there is a thin film of something on them. I might start buying these instead of Polys since locally they are almost the same price
Things I liked: This Red Fire pellet by Gamo may be their best and most accurate .177 pellet. The pellets weight, in my opinion, is ideal for small game, penetrating deeply. I was curious about the design before purchasing this pellet, after using its lighter brother the Blue Flame, I considered it was worthy of a try. The Blue Flame did not disappoint me, even though it was a PBA. I was thoroughly impressed by the Red Fires accuracy. This pellet is in the first choice category when choosing a pellet to load to dispatch small game. This .177 pellet was shot from 4 air rifles in this review: Gamo Hunter "220", Beman RS2 Silver Kodiak, Gamo Big Cat 1250, and the Ruger Air Magnum. I definitely recommend the addition and use of this pellet to the collection.
Things I would have changed: Nothing! This pellet has an effective design and weight. Gamo's pellet count, my opinion, should be 300 count.
What others should know: This pellet's fps was measured over my Competition Electronics Prochrono Digital chronograph in 45 degree weather, mostly cloudy sky, little wind if any. The air rifles chrono readings are: Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 853 fps with a low of 847 fps and a high of 868 fps with an extreme spread of 21 fps, Beeman RS2 averaged 883 fps with a low of 870 fps and a high of 893 fps with an extreme spread of 23 fps, Gamo Big Cat 1250 averaged 889 fps with a low of 881 fps and a high of 905 fps with an extreme spread of 24 fps, Ruger Air Magnum averaged 1101 fps with a low of 1078 fps and a high of 1113 fps. The target was 12"x12" and had a 1" bullseye and was at a distance of 70 feet, my standard for targeting and sighting my air rifles for accuracy. These pellets were shot in groups of five from each air rifle. I highly recommend this pellet based on my shooting results, experience, and opinion.
Things I liked: These have a tiny bit larger skirt and have to be pushed home. This is good because on a break barrel rifle, it is frustrating to take a bead on a pigeon and find the pellet and find that the pellet fell out when you closed the barrel=== very accurate
will these fit the 1077w rotary mag
Will these pellets fit the rotary magazine of a Winchester MP4. I'm afraid the the pellet would be too long
do these pellets have lead?
Yes, They are lead
