Things I liked: I was pleasantly surprised by how snugly they fit the breech of my .22 Striker 1000x & Crosman 160 Pellgun I restomodded. Accurate with good penetration. The domed shape seems to be among the best for over-all use. Both aerodynamically and penetration-wise. I installed the Archer replacement valve ( Crosman redesign from 1963) in my 160 Pellgun. And with this pellet it got it's highest ever FPE of 11.76! Not bad for a variant one of 1955-56 vintage. Even the 1000x performed well with them.
Things I would have changed: I tend to agree that these later, read new label offerings are of better quality. Keep improving quality control and these pellets will consistently perform as well as JSB, RWS, or even H&N!
What others should know: At least visually sort your pellets for bent skirts or off calibers mixed in. And keep your bore clean, as the rifles tend to break in faster when cleaned after every session. Why? Because pellets make a black crud very similar to a powder burner to the eye. It's the antimony in the lead the pellets are made from, and whatever is used to coat them. These things can definitely effect performance.
Things I liked: Well, they were the cheapest pellets available.
Things I would have changed: Quality control. Several pellets had larger heads and were difficult to get into the breach. Also, several were miscast and had cuts and protrusions on.them.
What others should know: I.will use these up, but no more Gamo pellets for me, looking for quality at any price, and these lacked in that area.
Things I liked: I like the simple, domed profile, which is like the Benjamin pellets I bought first. (Local hardware store find, before I even had a .22 air rifle!)
Things I would have changed: Maybe a lighter pellet. It didn't perform on small game as well as I hoped, from my Nitro Piston. Maybe they do better from a PCP?
What others should know: Seem to be accurate, but may be below the peak velocity my rifle is capable of. (Crosman Shockwave .22 Nitro Piston)
