    Got my X Slug liner yesterday and I was watching a video on how to swap the pellet liner for the slug liner. So in the video it says that the standard liner has one line at the end that faces the breech and the slug liner should have 2 lines. Both my liners only have one line at the end. Can anyone please confirm one way or the other? Haven’t shot it yet. Just want to make sure I didn’t get screwed cause they both look exactly the same. 

    Thanks in advance.

    Both the slug liners I have seen have only 1 line.

    Also as with Bob, my liner did not fit into the housing without having wet/dry run over the outside in the lathe (line end) you may have the same problem.

    Have you done any testing on it. Finally got it installed and shooting the NSA 23gr .217 and .218 the groups at 20 yards are horrible compared to pellets using the std liner

    This is one group of 6 with the 23gr .218 slugs with slug liner and (4) five shot groups with JSB18gr with the pellet liner. One inch squares at 20 yards

    There is something very odd going on, the Pellet B & slug liners "appear" to both have a choke.

    My B liner is still way too tight IMO for the 25.39g JSB Monsters, hence the velocity seems to still be too low. I dont think they sell the 25g in anything other than 5.52 do they?

    Did you try pellets in the slug liner?

    My 600mm 22 slug liner has one line on one end.

    I did try JSB 18gr pellets using the slug liner and at 20 yards, pretty much all going thru the same hole.

    Made a phone call to FX USA this morning and according to the Pellet Liner B is the one with 2 lines. Ernest Rowe said to keep trying different weights and diameters to find the one with the best grouping. The pellets are going to group better at closer range but past 75 yards is where the slug is going to beat the pellets. That’s the info I received.

    The information from Ernest is consistent with what Matt and the Air Hunters have said.   

    I put three sighter shots on a silo at 130yds yesterday.  They all impacted in a very small group…..less than 2" easily.

    Pellet liner B has 2 lines? all the ones I have seen (including mine) only have 1 line! what is going on then?

    Both my slug liner A and the pellet liner (that came with this new .22 barrel kit) have one ring. 

    The .217 23gr NSA slugs were shooting "faster" out of my slug liner than the .218's. I haven't been able to get out to test accuracy since I installed it – I was a few miles from the outdoor range (2.5hrs away), and hit 3' of snow on the trail! Huge bummer :/

    Try the 23gr slug.  The 19 and 21gr are fairly short and may be unstable as a result.

    Also, if you have .217 diameter, you might try .218 as it may give better results.
