    Anyone tried these yet? I presume velocity is higher than the 25g due to the weight? or does the barrel friction from harder material slow them down? how is the accuraccy?

    How much are they? I would try them but would have to tune my gun down big time.

    Ive tried the GTOs yes of course much higher speed,  same weight as these and are basically a JSB King made of tin.  Just as accurate as kings up to 50m (as far as ive tested them)

    I haven't tried the .25, but the GTO .22 is the by far the most accurate pellet I've ever shot in my Crosman break barrel. I am stacking pellet on pellet in the bullseye at 50' indoors.

    I am curious to see what long term effect shooting these non lead pellets have on accurate barrels.

    I personally never shot them and worry about rifeling wear being a much harder alloy and all.

    But its just my own thoughts… And Precaution…

    BTW I never stick any kind of tin aluminum or metal types of rods in any of my gun barrels…

    I would use them to LAP the barrels if needed, but thats just me…

    Coldair, I had the same thoughts when I first joined our local indoor range. They have a lead-free rule and I follow the owners rules. I decided to sacrifice my $100 Benji to have something to shoot indoors for the Winter. So far there really hasn't been much wear with GTO's.

    My 18yr old Gamo seems to have a little looser lead in the breach, but I was shooting H&N FTT greens in that. Trigger sear just snapped, so that experiment has ended.

    Thanks Glem, what velocity were you getting? my only concern is that I never get good groups over 900FPS!

    The Exact Lead Free and the GTO Lead Free are the same pellet. GTO is the American version. Same molds, same pellets, different package. I got this from JSB and their US distributor.

    I think i remember 1100+ if i wanted but thats much too fast of course.  Only really shot a few over the chrony.

    Thanks, are you saying they grouped at 50m at 1100+?

    No i was just given a tin and ran a few over the chrony at the setting i had to shoot the king heavies around 900.  Next time im at the range ill try some out at 50,  if they do well ill try at 100m.

    It was a while ago i shot some but not that hot probably 950 or so and they did well.  Ill give them another try.
