“JDShapp”Not just the rarity that’s the problem with some of these metals, but also their hardness or lack thereof.


However, an alloy of gold and silver can be made to get the hardness to a level that matches the hard lead pellets that we like.

The thing is, the required twist rate goes down as density goes up.  IMO, most airguns have a twist far faster than is needed for diablo pellets anyway.  A near double the density pellet might start having overturning effects due to spinning too fast. (See Tippe Top video):

Like the Tippe Top, pellets have a center of mass well in front of the center of geometry.
