    Has any one sorted JSB Predator Polymags? I like the expansion they produce but I always get one or two fliers in a five shot group at 50 yards. Has anyone weighed and measured head diameter on the Polymags? If so, did the accuracy improve? Is there a recommended speed they should be shooting at in .22 and .25 using LW barrels?

    Over the years I've tried every variety in 22, and I'll call it the polymag trap. The best I could achieve was acceptable results with shorts at 40 yards with the shorts shooting low 900's with a Cricket  I just tried it again with a Leishy shooting at just sub 800 fps with the 18 JSB's producing one hole at 20 yards, the groups were 3/4" at best with the poly mags. To date several Marauders, and Disco's performed  even worse.

    I've never had any luck with the polymag shorts.

    I might give them a try in 25 caliber this summer.

    Poly mags produce some of the best groups in my .25 Marauder…odd

     

    1/2" @ 50 yards and very close to 1" @ 100.

    I can get anywhere between 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch 5 shot groups at 50 yards. Then I get one or two fliers that open it up to 1 inch to 1 and a 1/2 inch groups at 50. This goes for both .22 and .25. I never bothered to try grouping past 50 yards after.

    😐

    I don't get the fliers but also haven't shot too much paper with these as I use them for hunting more-so, and have never missed a shot with them that I felt was lined up right on my end.

    I have agree with the consensus. I can never get them to group. If you are shooting something with a Cz barrel the Baracuda Hunter Extreme gave good accuracy in some of my rifles. And expand like crazy. Look like the Phillips screw head.

    .25 Predator Polymags, 52 yds 880 fps 5 shot groups: top three groups compared to Kings, bottom three groups, all shot from .25  FX Elite with original  ST barrel.

    Expand pic for better viewing.

    My BSA HORNET shoots these .25s just as well. 

    The .177 Polymag Shorts shoot very close to the same sized groups as with 8.44 gr Exacts from my  RAW TM 1000 at 20 fpe  out to 50 yd and are deadly on small pests up to rabbit size.

    Kind regards, Harry.

    .22 shorts are the best out of my P-rod. Both .22's and .25's shoot well out of my Leshiy (750-830fps).

    Owl beak tip is way more lethal
