Never tried these. My favorite inexpensive pellets are the H&N Sports from Jocelyn @ Cible target Canada (on Ebay). About the same price as these Gamo.

The only pellets I ever got from Amazon where some made in Germany Norica match, where rebranded H&N Excite Plinking. For the $ they were OK up to 10M

It looks and feels good, cleaner than the grizzly, and I like the treaded cap much better than the grizzly's loose plastic boxes... not bad at all in shooting. A bit tight in my guns.

I don't shoot ,177 anymore, strictly .22 so I looked to see what they had in .22. Found these, which are not a good price and I wouldn't use them for sinkers (let alone plinkers).

I have bought these Gamo Match .177 pellets.

I was having problems with pellets not working properly in my Gamo G1200 pump action CO2 air rifle (same rifle as the Daisy Powerline 889). The feeding system in this pump action is a little finicky.

So I tried theses based on comments I read. They work much better in this Gamo gun than other flat head pellets I tried.

No complaints with them, seem like nice pellets for the price.

Have not tried them in many other air gun, other than a Princess Auto break barrel.

What type of airguns were you planning to use them in? Strange how this pellet works better than any other in this Gamo airgun. But as I said, it has a fairly picky feeding system.

I used them on my single shot guns include HW30, HW70, Victor, HW40, didn't see any feeding issues except it's a bit tight but anyway I use a stick (or the bolt action on the Victor) to seat the pellet, so it didn't bring me any trouble so far.

Anyway for the price, I don't think it's the serious match pellets, so I use them for plinking only and it performs so far so good (the pellet weight is not so heavy and also not on the very light side, so I like it) and I will buy again as needed (run out of stock, need something to meet the $35 free shipping etc...)

I concur with what Yepyep said. They seem like a reasonably priced mid-weight pellet. I would not classify the as a "match grade" target pellet. I only use them for causal shooting & plinking.

I would not regret your purchase. Try them out & see if you like them. Can't really go that wrong for the price.

Pete, you might find them a little heavy for the last mag. on your M17, but should be OK for the first couple of mags. Same goes for other CO2 pistols.

Just be careful on the M17. I found the 20 shot belt mags to be a little finicky with certain types of pellets on the M17. Maybe make sure pellets are seated properly and belt moves freely, before you insert the stick mag.

Do you have a link for those pellets, Pete? I got a couple of tins in a bulk private sale.
And I have a Gamo G1200 :D --
Thanks for the heads up, BB1

your welcome. e. if you have an amazon account just type in gamo pellets .177 they are $6.93 for a tin of 500. for the free shipping you have to spend $35.00. so with my order i also got some umarex bbs--they are only $4.48 for a nice little plastic bottle of 1500. and a 1500 count bottle of hornady black diamond bbs--- they are $6.44. i thought i,d give them a try too.

Pete:

You also can't go wrong with the Hornady Black Diamond BB's. I find them the best BB to use. I always use them in all my full auto BB guns, and never had a jam.

Spend an extra dollar or two on premium BB's and save hundreds on repairs. Internal BB jams can sometimes be almost impossible to get out.
