I bought a rather expensive Gamo back a couple years ago.
From about 10 yards it won't hit within 6" of the same place twice from a rest.

It is .177 caliber.

If it says they shoot 22 caliber that means the pellet is that size. They won't shoot both.

Oh and if it is .177 normally they will shoot BB's too.

I was in the attic today and found my Crosman 760 with the owners manual. In the back of the manual is the warranty information I completed and dated 12/27/70. It shoots BB's and .177 pellets. Thinking about sending it out to be repaired. Needs new seals the wood butt stock is rough. I'm planning to make a new wooden butt stock.

Absolutely, I helped a buddy sight in his new RWS Diana 177 cal. with scope, and we could put the pellets in about a 1" circle at 30 yards. It shoots 800 fps and puts a pellet completely through a tin can.
