    for what gun ?? this is .252 , see you want to size down the least as possible so if you want it for a pcp which gun and what bore size , If you say just a std 25 cal then maybe look at some of noe .250 ones or  look for a 25 pistol cal which is .251 and size it accordingly , remember by varing your mixtures you can get slugs to shrink a bit but as a rule of thumb I dont like sizing more then .001 , so accuracy is not affected , let me know if this helps also which gun and which power level >?

    I still own my first 22 caliber PCP gun it is a Evanix AR6 which has like  revolver style clips , and it can be shot single or double action , it has over 60fpe with slugs , and deadly but loud it came with no moderator , I have used an moderator and shot it bare , great gun ,

     

    lol one cool thing about it is , if you cock hammer it shoots 40fpe but if you double action trigger it has over 60fpe ,  to double action trigger it is like 25 or so pound pull yes 25 to 30 lbs

    HI I have a edgun R5 super long 30 caliber, I have mine tuned to shoot 52 gr slugs 920fps or about 96fpe with a huma regulator , It is very accurate with pellets and slugs , and I have taken adult coyotes out to 100 yds 22 shot clean,

    They only made 401 of these , I See some in classifieds ,so they can be bought here in classifieds , I think Edgun west may be out of them , The are a rugged accurate quiet gun ,

    , I never tried the new day-state but they have a few models to 100fpe , then their is American air arms evol , around 90fpe ,  all are higher priced guns , Alot of guys here run impacts , I my self had a few I had sold ,They were not mk2 with plenum so , I cant say how latest one is ,

    HI here is my input , where I live only .22 cal is legal for hunting , so I have many pellet and ,22 cal slug guns ,

    I do own 3 ,25 calibers , and I have 1 .30 caliber it is a Edgun r5super long ,

    I really love the .30 caliber for extra power and slug choices , I have taken coyotes with them and wow they amazing ,

    I just ordered a new .30 caliber repeater from AOA and yes I love the bigger calibers and heavier ammo

    Hi , I checked into both and NO they are not the same , the deltaforce and the safari can be programmed from gun the , Red wold needs the scanner or programmer ,  I hunt alot so I didnt want a pretty stock so I was waiting on delta force to hit , but I spoke to people with all of them , I know many have great accuracy with the redwolf  , I have heard of some having accuracy issues , not with electronics  but with the barrels having some flaws ,

    The Art system was a bit confusing  like gun is $2995 and art tune is +$400 , it is same barrel on some articles it says  some shooters spent time tuning the platform  and barrel systems , , so when I inquired is it a tune or barrel , it is vague , but I understand it is $400 to tune it ,

    Lopey15 all manufactures of hi end guns spend hundreds of hours on barrel specs , so this is nothing new here .

     

    SO being 99.99% of us tune for where we shoot or for the slugs we make or pellets we make or buy , then it is not needed Id put the $400 twards better glass or a good bipod ,

    I was looking at the 22 and the 30 caliber , I decided it was not an upgrade for what I own in 22 caliber and I ended up ordering a EVOL in .30 instead .

    Hi Id have to say > .22 for most used as it is only legal caliber and it can stretch out past 200 yds with slugs , but I also love my 25 and .30 calibers for extra power and  and better slug selection ,

    But I have hunted with .22 caliber for decades they can take out any game with good placement , but it is fun to use the bigger calibers LOU

    no I saw this thread here today where this on had an external installed , so my question is the MK# the same thread as other plenums? like say dream line ? or is each block and thread different ?? seems like a universal thread  would be best so to make less stock for all guns where as some tubes long some shorter , or is the MK#3 totally different then like other FX guns with Air Tubes .

    nice This is just like the ammo for centerfires called ballistic tips or varmint rounds , I bet it should raise the BC  , I think what mite be even better is making some out of alum to make them more aerodynamic , I my self like solid slugs but I do Like this better then the Big hollowpoints which are being sold , If I remember correctly isn't their a 35 caliber airgun slug like this?

    I have edguns in 22 caliber long and in 30 caliber and 25 caliber as well , they are accurate and rugged guns , WHat I like about edguns is very easy to service like 10 minutes you can strip gun down with 3 allen wrenches , I have thousands of rounds threw them with not even an oring failure ,

    I never tried the vulcan2 or uragon so I cant comment on them , but as for tune-ability for example , my 22 caliber r5m can be tunes to shoot  sub 12 fpe to 30fpe for pellets  and I can set it to 69fpe for slug shooting ,so it has plenty of adjust-ability ,maybe someone can answer who tried both

    I have dropped all my edguns and one actually rolled down 18 steps onto the cement walkway , and I have to say it also held zero , I am not bragging about dropping mine more or worse but , I use edguns cause they still work when things like this in real world happen ,

    I have had another gun one tie I dropped it from stomach height and it was done it leaked at the plenum , I wont mention brand but many other brands are great guns but not as durable , I like durable LOU

    Nice I always loved my wild cat , I like the features in the MK3 ,

    So you saying it shoots 25.39 gr with 100 bar reg , nice , it must get great shot count , how many shots per fill ?? also My mk1 holds 8 pellets , what does new magizines hold? also does it feel like  the original wild cat say shooting offhand ? they are a great gun for carrying and hunting .

    I use the tremor 3 and the Horus H102 Both are on hi end scopes , and I like them for the speed of holding , I also use a simple uncluttered mil reticles , I do like both , but for long range I would go with a clean reticle so as I can spot my vapor trials or see where I hit.

    Both have pros and cons , but yes speed in wind is where the t3 and h102 shine ,I do like the H102 better as I seem to be a bit quicker with the egg shaped reticle ,

    I like this I agree smarrer caliber need to be precise or wont kill  animal , but the bigger 25 cal is alot more forgiving ,and has alot more power and mass to it , I hunt here with 22 calibers mostly and placement is critical espially at long distances on a woodchuck sized animal I would say  you have a 1 inch window to be in to kill it LOU
