I BOUGHT THE BIG CAT 1400, AFTER CHANGING THE SCOPE,I CAN PUT 5 OUT OF 5 IN A QUARTER SIZE BULLSEYE, FROM 40 YRDS, 90% OF THE TIME. ON LIVE GAME, 12 OUT OF 14 KILLS WERE HEADSHOTS. ITS REALLY NOT EVEN FAIR… Read Full Review

“bloody good”

Written on: 26/07/2013 by marsden1964 (1 review written)

I test out pellets by aiming my .22 whisper at a old mild steel cooking pot.the impact results in diferent inpact dents.my best inpact result was from a bisley magnum pellet but i always wished i could shoot a hole through that old pot.in the u.k where i live theres a severe limit on the max power of a air rifle,so resigned myself to the fact i,d always would have a pot with a lot of dents.on a whim i came across on ebay seller of gammo rocket pellets.they arrived i loaded up not expecting… Read Full Review

“gammo rocket pellets”

Written on: 20/04/2013

i like to shoot my sling shot. i used to have a pellet gun one of those ten pump deals. good gun but it broke. i wish i new what brand it was. i'd like to purchase another one. very light weight. i wish i could find a semi automatic pellet gun for a decent price.i once shot a pellet gun that had the same power as a .22 but that gun weighed a ton id rather just shoot a .22 rile. i dont reccomend this pellet because of a post that said they are irregular in size. i love england. and my… Read Full Review

“Groundhogs beware”

Written on: 16/02/2013

We have horses on a small farm so obviously we do not need groundhogs making leg breaking holes in our fields. I have whacked quite a few of the critters with shotguns but I am hesitant to use a 22 cal rifle because I am afraid to have the round carry too far and hurt a neighbor or worse. I also was afraid to use a pellet gun on groundhogs because I don't want to wound an animal. I want to put them away quickly. Well,,,, I experimented and I am impressed with how my Gamo Rocket .177 pellets… Read Full Review

“I bought a .22CFX recently. Probably had 50 shots thru...”

Written on: 11/07/2010

I bought a .22CFX recently. Probably had 50 shots thru it. So it hasnt been properly run in yet.

The rockets produced the best grouping of under 1" CTC from 20 Yrds from 4 pellets. With other pellets (Pro Magnum and Winchester AP2250) I was getting groupings with 2.5" with some flyers going 2.75" CTC.

Penetration was about even with the Gamo Pro Magnums into Pine.

Cost works out to be about 10 cents a pellet, so it's pretty expensive to shoot. They also loaded well into the rotating… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2010

Deadly, accurate, terminal performance on all small game that I have shot with it. It really tears up squirrels entering with a tiny hole and usualy exiting with a horrendous gaping wound. Most are dead long before they hit the ground. In my Ruger Air Hawk the Gamo Rocket is Devastating! The $5.99 price tag for 150 pellets is a little pricy but worth every penny! I have killed dozens of Grackle's at 40 yds with very little correction needed for elevation. AWESOME! nuff said!… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2010

With a daisy 880S pumped 10 times shooting at 10yds I can hit a dime size or smaller group with 3 shots every time. I only use these for rat or racoon shooting and they work well. I was able to break a 8"x8" spanish tile with two shots. One guy said he shot a chipmunk with these pellets on this thread, man wtf did a chipmunk do to you man. Ill pop your ass with a raptor foo if you come around here. 25% more asswhoopin son… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/06/2009

These Gamo Rocket pellets are all over the place in my Gamo Big Cat 1200. Some slide into the barrel no problem and some are such a tight fit i give up and throw them away. They shoot fine in my dad's old Daisy pump but for some reason my Big Cat doesn't like them at all. I can't even consistently get them on the paper at 20 yards. I'm disappointed in gamo for the terrible quality control… Read Full Review

“0.22 cal ”

Written on: 24/05/2009 by Belatucadrus (21 reviews written)

0.22 cal
14.5 gr

An interesting variation on a sabo shot only with a copper bb round embedded in a standard diablo pellet. No plastic shroud to foul the barrel.
Note as the business end is copper not lead, this is a high penetration, low distortion shot and liable to punch holes straight through stuff that would stop pure lead pellets. Accuracy appears pretty good… Read Full Review

Something's gone a bit pear shaped as I recon these are quite good value and I do recommend them.
<br/>Perhaps an edit facility needs to be added.

Written on: 20/01/2009 by Derrick05 (15 reviews written)

I posted an earlier review where I gave these pellets a10 but am here to retract that. These had been my favorite hunting pellet until this last batch. Some shot fine and some were so oversized that they were stuck in the barrel wich could damage a pneumatic rifle. I have NEVER witnessed such horrible quality control. I will never buy another tin of these for fear of damaging my pump rifles… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2009 by Derrick05 (15 reviews written)

Gamo Rocket is the best pellet that I can buy locally for small game hunting.I am not a target shooter or plinker so I can only speak for hunting and this pellet outperforms anything on the shelf at Wal-Mart or Kmart in my Remington Air Master 77.At 45 yrds I can hit 3 out of 5 shots in a kill zone the size of a squirrels head.I can consistently kill doves from 50 yrds and grey squirrels from 40,which is my personal limit with a pellet gun(for squirrels) I refuse to use anything else in my Air… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2009 by sawtoothscream (3 reviews written)

they works good when i used them in my yard was shooting pretty good groups and having fun with them. but i took them hunting one day and shot a chipmunk with them and it run about 20 yds and down its hole.

i wasnt to happy.

so they work good might try them with my new bigcat to see how they compare to my new pellets.

the pellets im using now are jsb predator polymags in .177 dang those things pack a punch like no other and are dead on accurate. but they are $20 for 200. you get what you… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2008

AAR (After Action Report). I just got back from hunting (Varmint) in Georgia, I mainly used the Gamo Rockets but my longest range kill came from the Gamo PBA Armor Piercing (lighter supersonic version of the rocket) at 98-100 yards. The Rockets in my G1 Extreme from Crosman were highly effective at ranges up to 60 yards, total kill count in 6 hours of hunting was 8 squirrels 5 of them killed within 60-65 yards using the rockets, 1 kill at 100 yards using the PBA Armor Piercing and 2 kills at 15… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/11/2008

As for the price to amount comparison I buy my rockets at Walmart for 3.99 a tin/can and compared to the 80 count Gamo Armor Piecring or the Gamo PBA Raptors at 100 count priced at 9.99 each, that is a good deal that I get for the Rockets. Was looking into the "Hydra-Shoks" (Crosman Destroyers) but after testing the Kinetic Transfer , Accuracy, and Penetration at 30 yards the Gamo Rockets came out indefinately on top, the Rockets penetrated 7 inches of clear candle wax with a entry point of 5.5… Read Full Review

OK! I got rid of the AirMaster 77 and bought a Crossman Storm XT. What a difference! These pellets are slightly more accurate than the hollow points I've been using but are probably better for birds (more penetration) than squirrels and rabbits… Read Full Review
