I was wondering if there was anyone with experience with these air shotguns.

There is a fair bit of info and usability for pest control with the .22 "chamber/barrel insert (inside effective accurate range, 30ish yards) but I have found very little info on the Gamo shot shells. I would like to now the weight (grain) and muzzle velocity I may expect from the guns. I know they are pal rates and I already own a pair of them, but as I live in an apartment and don't own a chrony I can't do much in the way of testing them.

I have some aluminum shot shells for better reloading but have been curious about the type of shot that would give the best energy for targets around 15 to 20 yards. The Gamo ones use #9 shot and at about 10 feet already spread about 1 1/2" - 2".

So In Summery any info on the factory Gamo shot shells would be very helpful (muzzle velocity, effective range, energy at muzzle and rate of dissipation of that energy over range etc)
And if changeling the type of shot and weight of load would heals peak efficiency
It would be much appreciated!
