Tried the 15.5 grain slugs in my .177, with so-so results.  Accuracy wasn't terrible, but not in the same league as it's favorite pellets (Baracuda Match 10.65).  Not terribly surprising; I think they're just a bit much for the rifle.  

No mud on the slugs though- they're remarkably consistent in size & weight.  Might be just the ticket for a rifle that can be easily tuned to push them harder.  Still hoping the 19 grain .217 slugs will do better in the .22 Regal XL HR that should be arriving later this week.  They're not much heavier than the JSB 18.13 that seem to do well for most in the XL, but a much better BC.

Still have ~70 of the .177, if anyone out there is interested in trying them send me a PM.
