They are expensive however so I would recommend the Crosman Premier Piranhas as they are cheaper with 400 pellets. They shoot in the same spot as one another with no correction and penetrate deeper. I recommend sighting with the Crosmans and shooting bigger game with the Crosmans if you cant do a head shot.
I'd say these Gamos would be best for birds or headshots on rabbits. However if you don't have very good shooting skills yet I would not recommend them as they can cause severe damage and suffering for the game you are trying to kill which I can't call humane. IF you do have your shooting skills down then I'd highly recommend these for hunting.
They shoot best with higher FPS guns as the lower FPS range wont cause good enough penetration or expansion. If you are looking for a lower FPS pellet then go with the Crosmans as they will deliver what you need.
I found that these red tip a little better then the wad cutters. Close range they do maximum damage
Using these with the p1377 handgun (average 540 fps with standard 7g pellets) it is a deadly and very accurate ammo. Im really currious of the damage if using a rifle over 1000fps.
But i can say right now, that these pellets are some of the best varmint and small game pellets that i have ever used.
To date I have used them on Crows, Squirrels, Rabbits, Pigeons, House finches, Starlings and more with great results.
The wound trauma that these pellets create is simply amazing! I have used them out of my various airguns, with great results both in speed and accuracy.
They will not let you down, BUY!
They penetrate and kill
Come on GAMO you can do better. At least give us pistol packers a heads up. Sign me up for advanced preview if you do a retrofit.
i highly reccomend this pellet
Small Game Beware!
