Things I liked: Accuracy with my QB Chief. Can be purchased locally
Things I would have changed: Quality control can be an issue with gamo pellets. Don't know if they are quite worth the premium they are priced at per pellet, especially with quality concerns.
What others should know: 1/4 inch group at 15yd with QB Chief at 1800-1600psi. My jaw dropped while I was shooting the group because I didnt expect them to shoot well. Now I don't know if this is just a penetrator or expanding pellet. I would love energy transfer more than penetration for my intended quarry since I'm using the .177 caliber.
Things I liked: Great idea, but...
Things I would have changed: Main thing: Quality control! I went through my tin (albeit I selected these as a Free tin from PA since I was ordering several others) several years ago , but what made me come out now to comment is I found my little baggy of deformed pellets which made up nearly a third of the whole tin. The skirts were either dented or completely deformed, several of the little penetration balls were offset from center and I even had few where there were two balls jammed in as if the machine forming these had a glitch. I know Gamo wants to market their own ammo for their specific guns so the shooters can get to that near stated FPS, but these would work much better if sunk into lead and a heavier grain. Those that did work couldn't handle high FPS and were all over the place! My brother-in-law tried these a few months ago (2016) and he had the same issue. Great idea, but I think Gamo should stick with making rifles and putting their monies into perfecting those instead of ammo.
What others should know: If you care to try them, I recommend selecting them as a Free tin if you are ordering multiple ones from PA. If you have a good power-plant in your air gun, go for heavier pellets if you are looking for accuracy, consistency and knockdown power; these light things are great for making your air gun sound like a rimfire, but that's about it.
Things I liked: These pellets seem to have better penitration and knock down power than all of the other .177 pellets I have ever used. I use them for critters trying to eat my mangoes and avocados.
Things I would have changed: Nothing

Will these Gamo Rocket .177 pellets load, fit and rotate in the Crossman 1077 pellet clip and magazine. I tried some other pellets that the tip was to long and would not rotate or fit in the 1077 clip.
Yes.They fit and shoot great
can i use this pellets on a .177 caliber crossman rifle
Yes, in fact this pellet is a favorite in my Crossman Vantage NP .177. Extremely accurate with consistency.
Yes, you can
Does this pellet fit as tight as the Gamo Red % Blue tips?
Hard to give a definitive answer because of the differences in rifles. But, a quick test in a Stoeger Atac .177. . .Gamo Red Fire were very tight and needed to be pushed in while the Gamo Rockets just dropped right in.
There is no way to know because each gun and pellet is different.
