~35 GAMO Raptor PBA rounds were used in a futile attempt to sight the scope. Then 10 rounds were fired on a new target. There was no “grouping.” Nine of the shots were all over a 12” square target and one round missed the target completely! (Please see annotated photo.) Ten rounds were used to re-sight the scope with Predator Polymag 8.0 grain pointed pellets. Every one of these rounds installed smoothly and very consistently in the GAMO rifle. They all had the ~same “snug” feel to them when inserted. All 10 shots in the 2nd test were within ~1.7” of the center. Another 10 rounds were used to re-sight the scope with GAMO Red Fire 7.8 grain pointed pellets, which is what is typically used in this rifle. These rounds were much more consistent on insertion than the Raptor PBA rounds, but not as uniform as the Predator Polymag rounds. All 10 shots in the 3rd test were within ~1.5” of the center.

They look cool...and that's about it.

These gold-plated GAMO Raptor PBA 5.4 grain round nose pellets are VERY inconsistently manufactured. I ran through 50 of them and 9 (18%) couldn’t be used because they were too large to be installed into the breech of a GAMO Varmit break barrel air rifle. Five (10%) of the pellets were so small, they just fell out after insertion. The rest were anywhere in-between. The tests in the attached photos were done with the rifle in a Caldwell shooting rest at 30 yards with a GAMO 4X32 scope. The rifle was cleaned and a snake was run through 3 times before use with each type of ammo. The ambient temperature was ~55 F and there was a very light breeze at 0-3 mph on a partly cloudy day. As others have written – do not buy these expensive, inconsistent, inaccurate pellets…unless their nice appearance is important to you.

I'm new to airgun hunting been doing it for a year this is the best and only ammo I will use

Accuracy every shot I've put down medium sized game with the.177


By CharlesUSAApril 14, 2019

Awesome accuracy

A little pricey

By MichaelUSAApril 6, 2019

Chamber hard, not accurate. None of my five air guns like the. Don’t know anyone that has had good luck with them.

Look nice and that?s all.

Hard to chamber, and not accurate with any of my riffles.

Not backyard friendly in suburbia/urbia. Even with a supressor. Not sure of accuracy because I'm too afraid of sighting these Devils in. My neighbors might call the police on me and it is illegal in my city 2 Fire even an airgun. They are best in my lower powered guns. To get more velocity out of them. It's a good thing since they're so expensive. Yes they work in my Sig P226 and every blue moon they will penetrate the hard OSB board I use for a Target (most of the time they bounce off as does every other pellets on the market). Works in my 1077 most of the time just got to watch if they are fitting too tight. These and Airstars will give my 1077 the ability to actually hunt small game. Without them, forget about it, it's just a plinker (Don't recommend airstars for the 1077 you need to file them down to get them to fit).

Boost velocity. Good quality, round skirt, probably because they're Durable (off the Record, sometimes you can even reuse them if the skirt is in good shape, my cheap-a** will even take a small screwdriver and bend it back into shape, but must have good hand eye dexterity to do so. I am not supposed to suggest reusing them anyways for safety reasons).

Loud in break barrels and most PCP guns.

I purchased these years ago for shooting small pests. They are the best and most accurate .177 pellet that my Gamo rifle uses. Years ago I bought a nice scope which is bigger then what came with my Gamo rifle. The accuracy was much improved with this scope vs using scope that came with the rifle. I have a bunch of different types of pellets, and when I use these different pellets I get poor results when it comes to accuracy and kill shots. The gold rapture pellets make accurate deadly kill shots most of the time. Even with the longer more complicated shot's I always hit the target. The difference in penetration is easily seen upon inspecting my kill shots using these pellets.

Accurate and precise.

Pricey but worth it.

By Paul AUSAMay 26, 2017

Well, they do break the sound barrier every time, but if there is a slight breeze, they drift. I even shot them inside in my basement, and the air vent had to be closed because at 20 yards, the air from the vent moved them. I will not be purchasing them any more. I will use what I have left for my air pistol for plinking in the basement.

sounds cool when you break the sound barrier and you hear both cracks!

too light for hunting or rifle target (20+ yard) plinking.

By RaphaelUSAApril 23, 2017

I've had no issues with accuracy or casting in ~4 years of using them. In fact, have not had a single pellet deformed.

By GarryUSAMarch 19, 2016

These pellets are fast through my Benjamin Steel Eagle. They sound like a 22 round when fired. not very accurate


not accurate

By RichAugust 6, 2015

Don't waste your money on the "Raptor Power Pellets". They are poorly cast! If you want a Gamo product, I would recommend their "Red Fire" pellets instead. Better than that, I would recommend you look at the RWS line of ammo. I had just bought my first series air rifle. Upon sighting it in, I started with the Gamo Raptor pellets and found them totally unacceptable to the usual "round" pellets. To many of them would resist loading. This was consistent with the four containers I bough from two different sources. As I mentioned about other choices, I am sticking to the RWS brand (I'm not promoting them, but think you will have better shooting with them). Try them and see. That is the best way to improve your shooting! If you want to try GAMO ammo, I would recommend using the "Red Fire" pellets.

Can't recommend any "pros".

Poorly caste. To many wasted pellets! Walk A-W-A-Y from the RAPTOR pellets.

This site says 5.4 grains, but the package says 5.1 grains. Why has Gamo reduced the weight?

asked Edgar from USA

Hi, I read below that these pellets would be fine to use in the Gamo P-25, so would they be ok in the Gamo PT85?

asked Dracula from USA


Mark from USA

How many pellets are included?

asked donnie

Donnie, 100 pellets are included. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

Is this ok to use with an air pistol? Im thinking of the gamo p-25 blowback.

asked James

James, Yes, these pellets would work just fine in a gamo p-25 blowback air pistol. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Sincerely, The Airgun Depot Customer Care Team

Scott from USA

Does the gold foul the barrel or leave residue?

asked Rob

I have used these pellets for the last 3 months. I have not found them to foul the barrel at all. The temperatures I have been using them in however has been very cold so I am not sure f higher temps will affect fouling. It would be a good Idea to run a cleaning rod down to find out. If so, safe the patches!! With gold in the 1,500.00 to 1,600.00 an ounce range, safeing the scrap no matter how small will be a good thing! Good luck with them and good shooting too you.

Michael F. from USA

I have been using these pellets once in a while and I didn't notice any residue but I can tell you they are awesome. Much better speed accuracy and grouping than any other pellets I tried so far.

Detelin from USA

what grain are these pellets?

asked james

these pellets are 5.4 grain according to the manufacturer

Scott from USA

I have a Crossman CO2 Semi auto (model1077)what do you think of using raptors in it?jamming? any other issues? Thank you Ed.

asked Ed Ferency

As long as it is a .177 gun that shoots pellets, you'll be fine.


do these pellets make the gun louder

asked joe

It depends on ur gun. What is the fps on it? Mine is 1000 fps, and when I use it, it makes my gun really loud. So it really just depends on the fps on ur gun.


This ammo is at the border with the speed of sound. using the gamo silent cat rifle, its Ideal ammo, it's slightly louder than lead but does not have the loud crack of sound that other alloy pellets have. An advantage when hunting small game. High speed with low sound (perfect ammo)
