Many of us in the shooting community still shoot air rifles. I personally use a .22cal air rifle for hunting pests and training at home. I try to stay up with good hunting pellets, and their design to see if there is a pellet out there that my air rifle might shoot better, more accurately and hit harder then what I am currently using.
Gamo has released their new Luxor CU which is a lead free pellet that is domed with a pyramid for better penetration and energy transfer. Being lead free these pellets will also be a higher velocity and could potentially break the sound barrier. For those looking to be on the quiet side these may not be for you, but that will really be dependent on weight and the specs of your air rifle. I do look forward to finding some of these locally and trying them out.
