The only slugs I use are NSA that he makes on his high speed press because the price is comparable to pellets. One exception are 257 slugs since Nick doesn't have a high speed press for them. Let's be honest pellets work as well or better in most situations.
Hi All, I’m using JSB .25 Knockout Mk2’s in my Daystate Red Wolf HP with excellent results. The snag is a friend gave me a couple of tins to try but I can’t get anymore in the U.K. or dealerships in Europe or a couple in the USA that I’ve tried. If anyone can point me to someone who can help or if anyone has some to sell I’d be very grateful. Thanks guys. Ian.
Yes the barrel is stock. No not tried the Nielsen’s as they also aren’t available in the U.K. ......well not from the suppliers I use. You know what it’s like that once you find a slug or pellet that mates so well with your gun then anything else is just second best. The Daystate Juggernauts are the same slug but they aren’t selling any at the moment due to the JSB factory’s delays in production.
Thanks for the reply. Has anyone experience with "slug barrels" vs original barrels? It seems slugs can be found to shoot just fine in OEM barrels if one is willing to experiment and fine the right one for the barrel. I would prefer to avoid having to buy/install another barrel.
atom: I suspect that the restrictions on firearms in your country is the prime reason for the popularity of air guns and the resulting lower cost of pellets/slugs. With the person in the white house and his henchmen in congress, we Americans will likely be catching up to you guys.
How much tin can be in a slug. I was talking to Matt @ Matt's Bullets. I was looking for a 357 to go in my Veradium tuned Bulldog. He can put as little or as much tin in the mix as I want. I am looking for a headshot slug. A semi wadcutter. I want to hit small pigs and deer. I want penetration. I am not looking for a hollow point to take lung shots. Being a little hard can help penetration. But what is too hard for an airgun barrel. I was thinking something like this that should fit in the magazine.
I only have .64 hundredths of an inch to work with in the rotary magazine. I an trying to get the heavies slug possible. My gun is suppose to spit 185 grain at 952 fps. 165 grain at 971. I also want to reach out for target fun. 200 yards or so.
