Gamo Tomahawk .177 Caliber Pellets
I just recently replaced and old scope with a Pursuit 3-9x32 22 scope. After sighting it in with old pellets I was getting poor results with pointed pellets. I switched to hollow points and accuracy got better, not good. I bought these and RWS Super H Point. These grouped around 1" maybe a little more. As for penetration the pellets completely buried themselves in a 2x12 with maybe 1/16" past the face of the wood. The expansion was not very noticeable. I did notice that the pellet was about 1/2 the original length and that they were slanted. I think the description from the company is very close to the truth. I can't vouch for expansion. All the pellets seemed to be uniform as to how the fit the barrel. I noticed this by how all the pellets seemed to insert with about the same fit into barrel. I have an old break barrel rifle and I can't attest to how they drop varmits yet, but time will only tell. Seems to be a good fit for a $300+ air rifle.

These would work for just plinkin' around, but if that's all you're doing you're probably using match points. These just don't shoot as tight a pattern as most other lead pellets. The Crosman Destroyers are a very similar design for hunting, but shoot a much tighter pattern in my Gamo Hornet. And if I'm going to shoot at an animal, I want to know exactly where the round is going!

Not the best, but every lead pellet has there deformities
I shoot Gamo Hornet and its okay but that is just because of the rifle

these things are all over the place i was shooting sub 1" groups with premiere ultra magnum 10.5 gr pellets. these are all different sizes some i have to cram in the barrel and some don't even grab the rifling. what a waste of money
