    Things I liked:

    I guess it's somewhat funny to see this gold pellet tumbling out of the barrel and taking a wild guess where it might hit......

    Things I would have changed:

    The Quality control is non existent. The price is far to high for what you get. The accuracy and flight characteristics are good for a chuckle...

    What others should know:

    maybe it me or maybe it is the rifle's I am using......or maybe it's just the embarrassing quality control and materials used that cause these pellets to be so wildly inaccurate

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Nice color

    Things I would have changed:

    The outrageous price and the ridiculous quality control.

    What others should know:

    Expect 10% of these to be unusable and 10-15% of these to be so poor they may not even clear the mag. I bought 8 of these from different sources and they were all the same. I cant say I'm disappointed in the performance there wasn't any way to establish any with how bad the quality control was.

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    how much more accuracy i can get. I can hit a chipmunk from 50 yds and kill it easy

    Things I would have changed:

    the cost

    What others should know:

    make sure the pellet is all of the way into the breach before you close it. and if you have a breach with a magnetic component, these can get very annoying.

  • 2.0 2.0

    1.0 1.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Shiny and fast

    Things I would have changed:

    They aren't the most accurate ones and for something that expensive I'd like more accuracy.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    they look like they're fake but its real... gold and all the pellet is great i shoots very well in my smooth bore and my rifled barrel air rifles... it shot through a squirrel with no problem at 20 yds with my smooth bore but is more or less a novelty item i cost alot but well worth the money

    Things I would have changed:

    how much these costs and how many u get... id like 250 for that 10 bucks

    What others should know:

    leaves no lead in the barrel great product other wise besides the money very light and does add velocity to your gun when fired i will say becarful if ur rifle shoots at 1000 ft per sec. because it will sound like a .22 going off and the neighbors wont like that

  • 3.0 3.0

    1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Breaks the sound barrier and stays pretty accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Breaking the sound barrier is cool but the neighbors aren't too keen on it. Terrible mold lines on most of the pellets. Expensive.

    What others should know:

    Shot in a Gamo Big Cat 1200. Stays pretty accurate. No sign of tumbling after breaking sound barrier. Still just a novelty pellet that came with my gun so I don't feel like I wasted my money.

  • 3.0 3.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Not the most accurate I've shot! But they are FAST.. In my Crosman Storm XT they break the sound barrier and it sounds like a .22LR literally.

    Things I would have changed:

    Consistency in size and shape!

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    they increase velocity. lead free so they dont build up lead in barrel. they dont bend easy.

    Things I would have changed:

    some pellets were over sized.

    What others should know:

    if your gun shoots 1000fps this pllet will break the sound barrier.

  • 5.0 5.0

    4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Sighted my Gamo Big Cat 1200 in with these and shot good groups at 25 - 40 - 50 yds

    Things I would have changed:

    Make them more consistent as far as the quality of these pellets. Some containers were all good and a few had some varying size pellets as well as excess trim on edges.

    What others should know:

    Overall I personally think these are great pellets. I've shot over 500 so far and I like them.

  • 5.0 5.0

    3.0 3.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Xtreme velocity!!! Amazing accuracy, and there isnt anything this pellet will no distroy with high powered air guns.I tried them in my quest, and they fly at 1250 fps!

    Things I would have changed:

    either a little more for the price. or a little lower price.

    What others should know:

    do not shoot at any target traps. becaus these thing will punch hole right into it. so be careful.

  • 3.0 3.0

    1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    I only liked the speed and penetration, that is only so good because it is so light and lead free.

    Things I would have changed:

    Definitely make consistent pellets, some are loose or tight and some others have manufacturing metal still stuck to them and others are so messed up they won't even fit in the barrel. Plus after the math, you are shooting 10 cents per pellet. Its like shooting a dime away every shot.

    What others should know:

    Plus after the math, you are shooting 10 cents per pellet. Its like shooting a dime away every shot. Also, these are too light for spring piston break barrel rifles, they WILL bust your spring after too much use.

    2.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    The "good" ones were very fast and accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    Gamo needs to work on QC. These pellets are so inconsistent that I will never use them again. I thought something was wrong with my rifle or me then I switched to led and the problem went away...

    What others should know:

    If you want a loud pop this is for you. If you want tight groups and small game in your pot, go with something else

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Not much

    Things I would have changed:

    Inaccurate, tendency to keyhole, diameters inconsistent with some fitting tightly others loosely. Too light (which is why they achieve such a comparably high velocity). A gimmick not worth the money.

  • 2.0 2.0

    1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    speed and lead free

    Things I would have changed:

    quality control is terrible. Half of the bullets purchased would not fit in my gamo big cat. Had to throw away....to expensive for the inconsistant design.

    What others should know:

    switched to predator polymags and oh what a difference. Each pellet is smooth and fits my gun perfect each time. Only thing I use the gamo for is the little plastic case that is comes in. I dumped out the gamo and put my polmags in it.

  • 4.0 4.0

    2.0 2.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    they were free, all seem to have no deformities so far

    Things I would have changed:

    lower price

    What others should know:

    these actually perform really well out of my genesis, which was recently tuned so they don't break the sound barrier which could account for the accuracy. used a stack of magazines in a box as a stop and all recovered pellets showed almost zero deformation, and also didn't penetrate as far as the crosman pointeds. took 4 test shots out of the big cat trying to get some 5 shot groups and stopped cause it sounded like the piston was slamming too hard, causing the spring to actually make a ringing sound for a sec. accuracy was horrible out of the cat which seems to like cphp's

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    best pellet on the market. fast excellent penatration. kill prarie dogs out to 85 yds. with my beeman R-1. my neighbor could'nt believe it.

    Things I would have changed:

    too expensive ffor just 100ct. 4-5 out of every pk. are hard to chamber

    What others should know:

    if you want a hard hitting long range pellet, look no further.

    Things I liked:

    corretly shaped ones shot nice and hit hard

    Things I would have changed:

    one in five can't be shot due to poor shape, not to many in a box, buy rws hypermaxx 5.2

    What others should know:

    walther pistol

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    My batch seemed pretty good, although they were a loose fit in my Gamo Shadow Sport. They are loud, and definitely faster than my Crossman 7.9gr, but again they're lighter.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price, kinda expensive to plink with

    What others should know:

    Many people say they shoot high.....well yes, if you sight your gun with heavier ammo, yes it will shoot high. Any time you change ammo from when your gun was sighted, your accuracy WILL change.

  • 3.0 3.0

    2.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    They keep your fingers clean; less lead is always good.

    Things I would have changed:

    Too light - impractical for just about anything except boosting FPS by gun manufacturers.

    What others should know:

    At 5.4 gram, these are on the low-end (or maybe they ARE the low-end) of pellet weights, and with less weight comes less penetration, less force of impact, and less stability in flight. For instance, the GAMO Big Cat (rated 1200fps with Raptors, 1000 fps with lead) can shoot a 5.4 gram Raptor at 1200 fps. That means the rifle has 17.27 foot-pounds of muzzle energy. Now, take that 17.27 foot-pounds of muzzle energy and push an 8 gram pellet out, and you'll be shooting it at 985.88 fps. While the 8 gram pellet is going ~200 fps SLOWER than the raptor, it will also more likely hit what you're aiming at and do more damage, both of what are important if you plan on hunting/pest elimination.

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    First off, they look great. It's almost a shame that they're gonna get shot out of a barrel. Very accurate, increases gun's ft/s by about ±20%.. Great penetration and expansion.

    Things I would have changed:

    Get more for your money !

    What others should know:

    I use these on my Walther CP99 and my Beretta PX4 Storm, with great results. The more powerful the airgun, the more you'll see how much more velocity these pellets add to your ft/s coming out the muzzle. Gotta love 'em.
