BloodstainedSinner: Pretty low fps rating. I personally know that the Crosman Destroyers out of
a 1200fps .177 pellet gun will blow a hole in a rabbit bigger than a .22lr.
Why? I have no clue. I would assume it's because the Destroyer is made of
soft led, and just mushrooms and explodes on impact, thus doing more
damage, whereas the .22lr would typically go in, then split a part.
Nathan Hardesty: I use gamo coppers all the time...dropped 7 squirrels the last time I
went...I mean, it's not chicken lol. I'll try these destroyers next time
I'm at the store...thanks for the vid!
Denis Lord: This is not ok,if you do this do it the right way Gamo Tomahawk VS Crosman
destroyer and that will give you the desired results. This two pellets are
not the same category... Cheers from Macedonia...
35sdphoto: You wouldn't get the same damage but there are others out there suited for
different fps guns. I would still stick with led, the PBA's and other non
led pellets just suck. If you are going to hunt tho I would suggest testing
out a bunch of pellets. You can also look up an fpe calculator that will
give you the foot pound energy associated with a pellet out of your gun. 12
fpe is a good level but requires more fps, all tho a higher fps gun give
you more options even a .22 upgrade if your serious.
wartree: two pellets for different things.
James A: It gun is 2 weak
72awesomeman: waste of food that pisses me off
Briley Brooks: and what about uhh
jukkis6699: yeah that's what I thought too, isn't the Gamo PBA bullet more for actual
sharp shooting, and the Crosman Destroyer for torturing animals? (I hate
how people use air guns for animals so forget what I said about torture) ps
( I really don't know too much about air gun pellets so I actually do want
Robocorps2: That's great to see other comparing pellets for the consumer but your test
ammo isn't very comparable to start with. Pba is non-lead round nose and
the Destroyers are lead pointed hollow points. Just an observation.
SkaterChris1998: What is better the destroyer ex or the destroyer¿?
voddee: If I was using this pellet in a 465fps pistol would I do the same damage??
Nwest82: Sweet Video, with quality testing conditions. I too just love the
Destroyers and for $4.49 for a tin of 250 it beats the price by a long shot
of most other quality hunting pellets like the "Polymags" which are $24.00
for a tin! Question: How do these pellets perform in medium powered air
guns, like around 450fps-500fps? when I say "perform" I mean is there good
expansion at lower velocities, as its obvious that the gun in that your
shooting in this video has to be a 1000fps air rifle. Thanks
Nwest82: @72awesomeman first of all good data and understanding how well a pellet
performs to ensure clean and humane kills on game is worth the waste of
meat. secondly, I can't speek for the guy that made the video, but
personally I would still cook it and eat it, after removing all the pellets
that didn't exit.
flyinasscritter: How far away was the rifle from the chicken. I am curious about that. Cause
I want to know a good distance to sight my Gamo in for good penetration.
Thanks Good vid!!!!
jake hernandez: if you gun was around 800 - 1000 fps that would be a lot of damage but at
465... not so much
Pbplayer126: How far was the air refile from the target?
Nebojsa Kvrzic: I have benjamin and the velocity is 500 m/s so its really powerful
Papa.Emeritus.II: If you like the destroyer, you might LOVE the premier hollow point. The
hollow point pellet is incredible.. Then again, within 75 feet; 25 yards,
hitting a pigeon does not offer much resistence. Last week I went out and
was using two types of pellets; one the premier hollow point and the other
RWS Hyper Velocity both in .177. I am not sure which was more effective for
pigeon hunting, I killed something like 12-13 pigeons and some shots were
instakill shots with both pellets. Try the RWS one! :D
reidairsofter: no, you would be far from this kind of damage. however you would see
simular damage but not this much as he is using a 1000 fps air rifle(im
assuming) and your pistol has 465 fps. the rifle has more knock down power
CSharp: Have you tried the Destroyer EX pellets and, if you have, have you noticed
anything different about their behavior when compared to the regular
Destroyer pellets? Judging from the description of those Gamo pellets at
pyramydair, Gamo's main concern was penetration. Is it even possible to
make lead-free pellets that expand like regular pellets?
alex rodriguez: so a fifteen dollar pellet vs a two dollar pellet accuracy test next?
72awesomeman: waste of food
Tony King: Good vid pal, this is as real as it gets.
SuperSmallgamer: i like your conclusion.how about trying the gamo tomahawk pellets.those
kin of tied with my favorite in hunting pellets along with the crosman
destroyers.i killed a pesky pest black bird way up in a pine tree with a
crosman 760 pumpmaster with the tomahawks.so i kindof like those,and i like
the destroyers because i shot a turtle's head off...so both are pretty
accurate and powerfull.also nice video...keep em' comin! supersmallgamer
Lyecdevf: I thought at the beginning of the video that I was watching a skull of some
animal. Only after you showed it from up close did I realize that it was a
screwloose455: @72awesomeman lol you're fat as crap.
