I have purchased 2 cans of these pellets, the first coming from a seller on E-Bay. They were fantastic. However, to make sure I got the exact pellet, I used the Gamo product number. There was one difference with the Wal Mart pellet Gamo number. It was followed by a "w". I own a Ruger Air Magnum that I zeroed with the first can I got from E-Bay. 10 shots at 50 yards with 1.25" spread. This included starting at 20, then 30, then 40, and finally 50 yards. On target every time. Followed up with nothing but on target shots the whole can. When I got low, I went to Wal Mart and bought a can, again, with the same Gamo product number, with the exception that the Wal Mart number ended with a "w". After completely finishing the E-Bay can, I opened the Wal Mart can. Did not hit the target, 8x11 sheet of paper with 1" bulls eye at all at 50 yard. Backed it up to 40 and 10 more shots totally missed, same at 30, and finally at 20 yards, I hit the paper 2 out of 10 shots. That was when I came inside, spread out a towel, and behold, there were 21
total pellet tips, "the red tip", out of the pellet. I inspected EVERY one of the intact
pellets to find that there were 0 pellets with the red tip in their proper place, 90 degrees from the butt end. All red tips of all pellets were laying down at a 45 degree position with some that had jammed way too far in the lead. I tried to put one of those in the barrel of my .177 cal gun and they could not be forced into the
barrel. I paid too much for these pellets not to be able to use any of them.
