Ideal for pest control
Very effective on quick moving targets.
Ideal for pest control where a firearm isn't practical or allowed.
I cut 2 mm dense hobby foam for the base cup and a piece of parchment-type paper for the front wad using the same hole punch.
Insert the 2mm foam plug in the base, load in 25 or more shot, and cap with the paper. You will need to tamp it with an eraser end of a pencil.
They work well, but one has to not knock them about because the front wad can dislodge with an impact force of sufficient Gs.
I've actually gotten BETTER shot groups by experimentation with the reloads than the factory.
Gamo is missing a trick, here, by NOT providing the tubes and base cups so people COULD do shell loading.
I suppose the lawyers have taken all the enthusiasm out of this...
At least pack more shots into a single shell. You can remove the plastic cap at the end and pour a few more in and you can pack a few BBs into a shell. Obviously not recomended to personally modify these things but it makes up for the lack of "punch" ;-).
I can say this: I was able to blow a dime sized hole into a milk jug once or twice but it was nearly at point-blank-range and most of the time when trying to re-create this effect I end up with a .22 sized hole or a little bigger.
I hope Gamo comes out with an upgraded version of these things. A reloadable shell that accepts several lead BBs would be good too :-)!

Answer:Hi, these shot shells should not be fired through a rifled barrel as the shot could damage the rifling of your airgun.
