    Default Rounds vs pellets?

    Hi, newbie with many questions again.
    I have read on the interweb about people preferring rounds to pellets and visa versa. I know the main limitation on rounds is the weight. Is it actually safe to fire say copperjackets with a springer? I have bought some Norica rounds for testing, but I'm a little reluctant as I'm not sure what the effect on the rifle would be. Any hints or advice please?

    You do get round lead pellets. They have great penetration but I could never get them to group, therefore they are useless to me.

    Thanks. Will I damage my rifle if I shoot the copperjackets?

    Copper jacket pellets like so?



    If so, it is unlikely that you would damage your barrel unless is some soft as babyshit Chinese thing.

    Gotta be careful with the term "rounds", them's BBs and Norica is really stretching it by calling them round pellets. I am not familiar with that ammo but be careful with ricochets at close ranges.

    I would wager good money that for accuracy, both your Gamos would prefer the normal diablo pellet shape than those "rounds"
