Things I liked:

Polymer tip is stronger than I imagined. Very accurate and penetrates game very well. Quality control is exceptionally good.

Things I would have changed:

Why not round off to 200 for the same price.

What others should know:

This is an excellent hunting pellet to be used with a single shot rifle or pistol. I wouldn't recommend trying to use them in a repeater, as they are substantially long and won't likely fit into magazine..

    Things I liked:

    Easy to put into the Gamo gen2 10x clip. They are pretty accurate

    Things I would have changed:

    Actually have some penetrating power. The Crossman 7.9 hollow points did way more damage to the wood backing. These did very little

    What others should know:

    Hope they work better against the varmints than they did against the wood, which was nothing. Some did not even penetrate the wood at all and the red tips were just laying on the ground still pointed and looking like they did prior the shot, minus the hallow point behind which was only 1/2 way into the wood. Quite disappointing, I was expecting a lot more from these.

    Things I liked:

    Extremely accurate. Groups routinely consist of one hole at 20 yards using an RWS 48 from a bench. I've tried lots of brands/types of .177 pellets: cheap/expensive, heavy/light weight, different tips, etc. and the Gamo Red Fire are the most accurate in my RWS 48. Not sure about varmint stopping power, but for target shooting this is the best high velocity pellet I've tried. Consistent sizing. Makes a perfectly round hole in paper targets. Easy to load in poor lighting conditions. They look cool too.

    Things I would have changed:

    A bit pricey, but worth it.

    What others should know:

    Light, high velocity pellets usually aren't very accurate. Gamo Red Fire is the best blend of accuracy/velocity I've found in a .177 pellet.

    Things I liked:

    wonderful for a break barrel or a single shot rifle, not the best for a repeater or a rotary mag like hte umarex ruger 1022 co2. that ruger is my squirrel hunter and pest remover and i use gamo lethal init. these are my go to pellet for all my gamo and umarex break barrel and single shot guns. great performance and superb penetration.

    Things I would have changed:

    better side skirts and maybe an alloy mix. they bend and defore in the rotary mag of my ruger making them useless. break barrels love this tho.

    What others should know:

    nope, great pellet that sucks in repeaters but is in the top 3 pellets for break barrel.

    Things I liked:

    They shoot fairly accurate and load easy enough fancy plinking pellets

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe reduce the lead collar around the poly point giving it more of a piercing point.

    What others should know:

    Using a Gamo Maxxim Hornet at 20 yds. they only piss off the squirrels not enough penetration

    Good pellet, wish you could buy tins of these with more in them like 300-400 instead of the 150.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate and a solid kill shot - heart or head on squirrels. Buries game, drops, and no exit! Light for wind? I switched to Gammo pro-magnums -.177 on a light wind day.

    Things I would have changed:

    Heavier? Not sure. As I am one years experienced here and into this with a G2 Whisper!

    What others should know:

    Pricey but for 200 pellets worth it! Your first varmint kill shot will have you a return customer.

    Things I liked:

    I used these pellets in the Daisy powerline 880 shadow kit and worked way better than people say about them. They are dead on accurate so I will be buying more these are my favorite pellets. They will work for pest control and hunting but when you go hunting I would not use on anything bigger than a raccoon with a head shot. Extremely accurate at 15 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    A little expensive for plinking because you only get 150 pellets

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    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

    Things I liked:

    I like the shape and the lethalness of the pellet. They are slower than other pellets but that just adds to the accuracy. I have tried several other pellets and none were as good as these.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like if they would put more than just 150 in the package. I got them not to long ago and I'm already starting to run out.

    What others should know:

    These pellets work excellent in the Gamo Squirrel Terminator air rifle.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    Have not used on anything alive, but they mushroom out just as well as polymags in water filled plastic bottles, and a lot cheaper.
