Gamo states that the (1) symmetrical 6-bladed head increases effectiveness, (2) the steel core delivers weight balance and improved accuracy, and (3) the hollow skirt stabilizes the pellet.

Things I liked: When the round did not bend in the chamber, this is a good pellet
Things I would have changed: Everything
What others should know: Buy a heavier round. You will be happier
Things I liked: Looks good.
Things I would have changed: It should have a standard design such as pointed or domed head, I don't think the fins leading up to the point allows effectiveness or does anything for it, they may work against what the rifling has done once it leaves the muzzle. I don't know, just speculating. As PBA pellets go, was not accurate when used in a break-barrel with high velocity. Don't know if I would buy this again.
What others should know: I shot this pellet out of four different air rifles when conducting this review. The pellet was shot at a 12"x18" box with a 2" Birchwood-Casey stick on target that was 70' feet away. The temperature was 55 degrees. The Ruger Air Magnum averaged 1444 fps with a high of 1458 fps and a low of 1419 fps. The Gamo Bi Cat 1250 averaged 1100 fps with a high of 1138 fps and a low of 1066 fps. The Gamo Hunter "220" averaged 1005 fps with a high of 1010 fps and a low of 994 fps. The Beeman RS2 Silver Kodiak averaged 1079 fps with a high of 1111 fps and a low of 1063 fps. The Crosman Powermaster 66 multi-pump averaged 726 fps with a high of 727 fps and a low of 725 fps (three shot group due to running out of this pellet). I find that PBA pellets enhance the multi-pump air rifles impressively. All shots with all air rifles were shot a Competition Electronics Digital Prochrono. All of my review shots are recorded in a logbook by date, temperature, air rifles used, pellet type and grain weight.
Things I liked: Great pellet!!
Things I would have changed: Not a thing!!!
