Things I liked: I have not used these pellets yet and gave them 4 stars simply because they are produced by GAMO.
Things I liked: I use my gamo magnum for small game / mid size game... I have killed large raccoons 20 yards and closer very cleanly with jsb Diablo jumbo heavy 18.13 gr with no problems. Just harvested a 20 lb porcupine with with thE diablos. Dispatched raccoons with cross man gold tips 17.4gr out of the trap and did the job perfectly.... with gamo reds I Tried to dispatched a raccoon from the trap. It went horrible with a well placed shot. Had to put 3 more into it. DO NOT USE THEM ON ANYTHING BIGGER THAN A SQUIRREL...
Things I would have changed: They are not a tight fit in my gamo magnum at all.
What others should know: The idea is creative. And assume it would be great for softer animals. They generally dont group well out of my gamo mag... with cross man gold tips 17.4 I am holding 1/4 groups at 25 yards and how they crush game. I dont see any practical reason to buy or use gamo reds on anything larger than a rat or small bird
Things I liked: These are a great pellet for pest control and I would guess 'small game' hunting. If you have a higher power pellet rifle (~1,000 fps muzzle velocity or more) like a PCP, the Predator Polymags do expand a little better and are slightly more accurate. But, especially if you have a medium power or lower pellet rifle (~900 fps muzzle velocity or less) you probably won't see a difference between these Red Fire and a 16 Grain, Predator Polymag. The Red Fire are a great pellet, at a reasonable price for knocking down small pests/game. The Red Fire have a little better 'reach' then the Predator Polymag for longer shots. (Lighter, Higher Muzzle Velocity, less drop, etc.)
Things I would have changed: The Red Fire seems to be made from slightly harder material than the Predator Polymags which I think accounts for the 'slightly less accuracy' of the Red Fire. I suspect these Red Fire don't seal or mold to the rifling's quite as well. The Predator Polymags have a little better expansion with higher power rifles.
What others should know: These are my 'go-to' pellet for general pest control. I have used the Predator Polymag Short .22 Cal. (15.75 Gr.) and still use the Predator Polymag .22 Cal. (16.0 Grains) but for general small pest control we like these Red Fire pellets. We've found the Gamo Red Fire .22 Cal. to be about as accurate as the 15.75 Grain Predator Polymag Short .22 Cal. while the 16.0 Grain Predator Polymag .22 Cal. is a little more accurate out to distances of about 20 yards. We have Squirrels, Ground Squirrels, Gophers, mice, a few rats and the occasional Nuthatch to deal with. Usually the Red Fire pellets work fine for all of them out to 30+ yards. The 16.0 Grain, Predator Polymag has an advantage at less the than 20 yards, especially with larger Squirrels and Gophers. We found the 15.75 Grain, Predator Polymag Shorts 'knock down' as well as the 16.0 Grain, Predator Polymag pellets but as far as accuracy they're somewhere between the 16.0 Grain, Polymag and these Red Fire pellets at distance.

Nice irregular SEEM running the length of the lead. Anyone know if this screws up accuracy? seems as large as it is ,it's gotta have some effect .
I thought the seams would affect accuracy too but surprisingly I found this pellet very accurate in both my Benjamin Steel Eagle gas piston rifle & Marauder pistol in .22. The .177 version is very accurate as well. Can be expensive shooting as tin count is only 125/tin so best for hunting.
Surprisingly it has no ill effect on performance, these pellets work well in all my springers and group great,not so much in my PCPs but superb accuracy in springers
