Gamo Hornet Maxxim Accuracy

There are lots of opinions on the accuracy of Gamo pellet guns so I would like to provide one on the Gamo Hornet Maxxim in .22 cal using JSB Exact Jumbo Monster Diabolo pellets. The JSB pellets are said to be the best and I have to say, they are excellent.

The JSB Exact Jumbo Monster Diabolo pellets fit in the chamber perfectly…not too lose and not too tight. The tolerances must be very tight on these pellets. Anyway, these JSB Monster pellets weigh 25 grains.

Here is my bench rest setup. The Gamo Hornet Maxxim is Awesome!!

Here is the Glow Shot Splatter small bore target after 5 shots with the JSB Exact Jumbo Monster 25 grain pellets from the Gamo Hornet.

Here’s a close up of the target. That’s a half inch group. The target rings are in 1 inch increments. I still need to¬†adjust the scope up and to the left about 1/2 inch.

So is the Gamo Hornet Maxxim in .22 cal accurate? YES. If you want to check Gamo pellet guns, here is a link to buy them online…Gamo Pellet Guns at
