    Default Gamo CFX Ammo?

    I recently purchased a Gamo CFX. I was told to use heavy pellets. Can anybody recommend something?

    Why heavy pellets ?

    When shooting a springer I believe pellets like accupells are best suited.Short stuby pellets that the rush of air can not deform.

    nope.. stay away from heavy pellets as they will cause your spring to break prematurely. use AirArms field or jsb exact 8.4 grain. they are very accurate in the cfx (one hole groups possible on 20m or so) and about R100 per tin of 500. If you cant foot the bill the Gamo pro hunters are a R50 per tin cheaper pellet but not nearly as accurate as the others mentioned.

    Thanks. Any idea what kind of power it would produce in a standard CFX?

    a standard CFX produces just over 12flbs. in other words.. they generally push a 8.4 grain pellet at about 830-840 fps

    I HAVE TESTED NEARLY ALL THE PELLETS ON THE MARKET IN MY CFX AND THE AA FIELD AND THE JSB EXACT 8.4 IS TOPro-Sport, STAY AWAY FROM THE HEAVY STUFF!!!

    yup, even the H&N field target 4.52 8gr pellets do very good. I only shoot with those atm and I can put a hole through a .45 calibre pistol's empty casing at 25m effortlessly. As mentioned before the air arms and jsb's are good as well. The 4.52 sized pellets fits better and perform more consistently than 4.5 sized pellets.

    The trick is pick one and stay with it because every brand has a different point of impact. Air Arms pellets I found shoot 1cm higher and 1/2cm to the left compared to H&N field target pellets on 15m indoors. I am yet to open up my tin of JSB's to compare.

    Would the weight make a difference if used for hunting Indian Mynahs or is the accuracy more important ?

    U1. Accuracy is always the most important. you dont need heavy pellets that you need to hope you hit the body with if you can hit the head every time.
