Gamo Red Fire .177 Caliber Airgun Pellets
They have great expansion but not as good as the Crossman Destroyer EX. These are very accurate pellets. Very, very well made(high quality). They fit snuggly in the breach of my Winchester which like because I don't know how many times a cheap pellet would fall out of my gun as I closed the barrel and ended up missing a squirrel and having to shot at a target to sight it back in, instead of shooting at them blasted tree chickens. You can actually take out the red tip with your fingers an a pair of pliers and they make a very deep hollow point.

Bought these for squirrel "mitigation". Was using a Beeman 10 grain round nose. Had accuracy issues and when I connected, not much energy transfer. The Gamo are surprisingly accurate and I haven't had a squirrel go more then 30 feet after contact. The only downside is the cost, not that these are overly expensive, for $12.99 you get about 1/3 the value of only 150 pellets. But for me it's been an easy tradeoff.

These pellets are what they say. They are incredibly accurate, great penetration, and excellent expansion. Buut,.. they really don't have very much knock down power since they're PBA. I've had to take more than one or two shots on squirrels multiple times. That and they break the sound barrier. I use them more for rat shooting and pest birds. Other than that they are great pellets.

Gamo .177 Red Fire
These are very good hunting pellets. They cooperate well with my crosman 760 pumpmaster, and are fantastic for plinking pests such as starlings and squirrels. These are by far the fastest pellets for a .177. These are very expensive though, at $12 for 150, at just a little under 10 cents per pellet. I highly recommend these for anyone who is serious about pest hunting. (Watch out, if the tin gets shaken too much the red tips fall out).
