    This is what a 38gr. slug @ 940 FPS does at 175 yards to water filled cans. The pop sound is a lot like a gun shot. 

    I was pleasantly surprised by the remaining power of this round at 175 yards. HP still preforms good. 

    Sorry about the picture quality. I wanted the sound from far away and the sun shining at the camera to shine threw the water on full zoom.  Not good for photography. 

    Modified Cricket 35 cal. to 25 cal. shooting 75 FPE. 

    Only way I can get it here. Sorry about that.

    I have contemplated swaging my own slugs because I already have a high-end co-ax press that I use for my powder burners.  I'm not sure I can find a swaging die that will work with my press or if it is even hefty enough to swage.

     

    How are you liking your Corbin?

    Sorry but please clarify for me Sir. 940 fps @ muzzle or on target at 173 yards? If at 173 yards still going 940 what in tarnation is your muzzle velocity & BC? Your flight time does seem very short & they are hammering those jugs. If I saw it with no sound or description I’d think .22 mag or .17WSM. Not quite as explosive as a .22-250 but dam impressive.

    cbuckley  –  The Corbin setup saved my airgunnig hobby truthfully. Well worth the cost in my opinion. 

    I'm going to Corbins today as a matter of fact. I have a rebated boat tail design for the base they will make for me. 

    JamesD  –  That's 940 FPS @ the muzzle.

    Here's what happens to the bottom of those cans if you hit about  1"  to 1.25"  from the bottom at that range. 

    The water has a bit of power pushing it to bend the bottom like that. Smashing it into the wood post that hard.. Kind of blew my skirt up. 

    I just about dislocated my thumb the other day, trying to put a dent in the center of the bottom of one of those cans. 

    This can only had about 1/2 it's volume. I had clipped it 1/2 way down and it drained to that level. So I hit the middle of the bottom 1/2 (almost) …..and that's what it did.

    Here's the slugs I was shooting.  38.1gr. going  936 – 940 FPS @ the muzzle.   

    They'er in the video. The ones in the video that are expanded were shot through one of the cans at that range.  

     

    I was at Corbin today to get a rebated boat tail design I have wanted…..Hope it does what I'm pretty sure it will do…..Superior BC.
