    This post is a follow up from: https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/had-to-share-hn-sports-new-slugs/

    Finally got the H&N slugs in my hands I choose .22 30gn for testing. First impression opening the can: Those are DARK! compared to other slugs brands. I thought it was oil or some lubbing but after careful review, is some sort of coating, you can not remove it using your fingers (and is not sticky) but you can remove it using your fingernails (scratching). First time I saw that on slugs. Wonder how will this affect the barrels/liners? more cleaning probably? Also the hollow point is not too deep.

    I did not clean it, I did not lube them, and I did not sort them, just straight from the can.

    Made several 5 shoot test @ 100yards with SilverSurfer

    Speed: 980 fps

    Reg Pressure: 130bar

    Liner: SlugLiner 0.22 cal

    Wind: Light, not much influence, maybe 1 moa to the side.

    Energy: 64fpe

    Size: .217

    ACCURACY APPROVED, SILVERSURFER say YES! ;) actually I was impressed by them. That coating might (or not) have something to do with accuracy. (I believe it does)

    I will hunt / pest this weekend with those to see how they perform. 

    In general the only "downside" on slugs is that the pop sometimes is too loud  💥, not backyard friendly for sure! Your neighbors might come out to check the sound. (IMO is about 3 times louder than a pellet when your target is hit … man is LOUD)

    Nice shooting!  Have these been the best performing slugs you’ve tested in Silver Surfer?

    Thanks CC, on 30gn .22 I will say NSA are good too from what I recall, VK too, been a while since I shoot .22 slugs over SilverSurfer, I was shooting more often .30 cal and .25 over SilverSurfer and .22 with BlackMamba (pellets mainly since my pesting place is up to 100y only, so pellets are good). Some of the new NSA are coming for testing. But definitely H&N Slugs are in my YES list now, I will definitely use them.

    BTW is the first time than anything H&N performs ok in my Impacts. (Exception with the barracudas hunter extreme, those where ok too up to 75m)

    Thanks for taking the time to review. 

    Do these come in .218 as well?  My crown seems to prefer that size.  I actually have not used any NSAs with any success like I've had with griffin 36gr BTs.  Although, at the time of tuning and testing NSA was not selling sample batches.  (They are now)

    I can also confirm the smack of lead on a hard target at that power level is very, very loud.

    thanks for your feedback! yes they come in .218 , are you shooting pellet or slug liner?

    NEW NSA are pretty good too (new mould dish base)

    Oh, nice! 

    I am using a 700mm slug liner.  I'll have to check out the new NSAs.  The cup bases do seem to perform a bit better than the flat ones.  🙂

    36gr in .218? you need a lot of juice to shoot those out of a Crown over 900fps, congrats! (or is .25 cal?)
