    HW97KT rifle——–Im probably crazy,
    but ive been known to Lobb a heavy 45-70 round out of my BP- twap-doa out to 300 yards,

    so ive been sitting here eyeing my home grown cast "22 Hornet" rounds,
    pellet rifle–springer rifle, puff-popper,,,

    did some measuring, they measure the same, but a wicked difference in weight, 14.5gn on the RWS and a whopping 38.9gn on the hornets,

    Hmmmmm  Lobbin-Rounds? out to 20 yrds?
    10 yard squirrel smackers?

    might need a "Tang Sight"
    or will i unspring my spring and send pieces of it coiled up in opposite directions of the tube,crying

    maybe it will pop out like a cork gun and just drop onto the floor and the back pressure-burp will blow out the seals,

    what say you all?

    You are not going to break the rifle by shooting heavy pellets.

    or it wont come out at the barrel's end, and it gets stuck ….then you have to tap that it out with wooden dowel… goodluck 🙂

    Personally, I wouldn't use them in that rifle. Much too heavy for any practical use.

    If you want to experiment to that degree,I would suggest using a much less expensive rifle from one of the "Big Box Stores".

    Don't mean to rain on your parade (or be a jerk),just suggesting an alternative. Your HW97 is a Beautiful rifle designed to perform Very well within it's intended parameters.
