Things I liked: Screw top lid with clear window, available at Walmart.
Things I would have changed: Make the tin a little bit larger and add foam rubber padding like Polymag does?
What others should know: Polymag Predators are consistent and fly true out of my OG Benjamin 392 w/BSA 4X40 scope. Wish I could say the same for the Gamo Red Fires. My experience indicates that, with this particular rifle, polymer tipped pellets produce devastating terminal results on vital shot Chipmunks @ normal ranges, but squirrels and larger critters dictate well placed headshots only. Out of my Benji, the Polymag Predators have the consistent accuracy for 25yd headshots with ease, one after the other. After going through 2 tins, my experience with the Gamo Red Fires have been a 50/50 gamble, varying between dead nuts to outside flyers. The .177 version produced similar results out of my Ruger AirHawk Elite II, with the chamber fit varying from loose to snug. I haven't tried Polymags in the AirHawk yet, but it does ok w/Crosman Premier HPs. I did notice some irregularities due to packing too many pellets too tightly, and a missing tip on occasion. Maybe they would be better out of a Gamo rifle?
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

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
