I found that crosman hollowpoints work in just about every pellet gun, I also like gamo poly tiped

Yea I like the gamo tomahawks I have some crosmans too not sure which ones they are off the top of my head but they shoot good. I tried some daisys and they are very loose not good at all and I got some beemans I think that are heaverier 10.some grain. They shoot good but way off my zero from the 7 grain ones.

I had a Daisy 880 when I was 16-17 that I'd shoot black birds and sparrows with then didn't have another one for quite a few years. Got a Beeman C1 carbine in the late '80's, it was pretty nice, got out of it and just recently got back into a pellet rifle with the order of a Ruger Air Magnum in 22cal tonight. Should have it by next Monday so I can post a little review.
Frustration mostly drove me to order it. I've been looking for a good 22lr like a Ruger 10/22 for a week or so but they're rare as hen's teeth and when you do find one the guys want three prices for em'. My budget was $200 and I was able to get a new Ruger combo w/scope and 500, 14.3gr dome pellets for $202.00 shipped. Ammo is really inexpensive for air rifles which is a real selling point and I think out to 40 yards or so any small game that I hit wouldn't know the difference between the Ruger air rifle or an actual 22lr.

Did you order from pyrmidair? Thats where I get most of my ammo when I fully replenish and where I bought my breakbarrels, never seen better prices!

I ended up ordering from Airgun Warehouse Inc. Pyrmidair's Shopping Cart wouldn't accept my order, guess it's because I have an older browser or some such so I went to Airgun Warehouse Inc and found the gun for the same price. Only difference was that they charge shipping if the order is under $250 where PA would have been free shipping for orders over $100. When time comes to order more pellets I'll probably go with PA since you can get 1 tin free if you order 3, unless AWI has the same deal.

Gamo Big Cat 1200 with Simmons 4X32 and "Charlie Da Tuna" trigger.
Update: After being zeroed in, the Simmons scope became inaccurate after about 40 pellets shot. A friend said an air rifle will destroy a rifle scope because of the vibration of the discharged air. Any ideas on this?

Well, finally got through and canceled my order for the Ruger Air Magnum. The review I watched said it wasn't all that good of a gun, go figure.
Ended up ordering a Benjamin Trial NP Nitro Piston from Pyramyd Air instead.The reviews were actually pretty decent on it.

Although none of the guns I'v reviewed lived up to their velocity claims this one came the closest and the accuracy, wow, pretty good at 50 yards IMHO.
Oh well, just be glad when it gets here on Monday, hope we get some warm, dry weather so I can get out in the back yard and do some shooting. Also need to break out the Chrony and check the Vel. for myself too.
