    Hey guys, 

    Basically I'm looking for something that can shoot a higher ballistic coefficient slug, fast enough to be useful. Not really concerned about FPE directly, but realize that heavy slugs moving 900+ are gonna have to carry a lot to do it! The Air force texan in a .257 looks promising, I'm just not a huge fan of the design.

    Are there any other good options that have a proper twist rate for a heavy for caliber slug, that have enough umph to push said slug to a velocity adequate for long range? 

     

    Seems like that there is a big hole in the market in this area. I've saw a few custom guns but can't seem to find much in a factory offering… Maybe something in a larger caliber that has the umph being rebarreled to a smaller caliber?

     

    I don't have much of a real purpose for this other than I have a 300 yard range at my house, and I like stretching my guns legs out. I have a Benjamin Akela in .22 cal, and a pellet runs outta steam pretty quick much past 100. Haven't found a slug it will shot consistently enough to write home about.

    The SA guys, Matt,  Roelf, and Gerhard, are shooting 40 grain .22 Patriot slugs at 2-300 yards with their Impacts. They must have a very good bc. 68. Whiskey are shooting .30 to 300 and beyond, also with Impacts. There are certainly other makes that do it also.

    Something in .308 may be a good choice, like the Extreme Big Bore. There is a huge choice in ammo if you include all the cast stuff the Subsonic 300 Blackout crowd is shooting.

    .30 impact with long barrel and slug liner or an AAA .308 slayer if you've got tons of money. I shoot my gen 5 .22 huben k1 at distances that far sometimes, but I imagine it doesnt do as well as the others I mentioned

    Impact 25 or 30 with heavy barrel liner in 800mm is probably your ticket….that you can buy and shoot. NSA has the .25 cal 38.5 grain slugs that have 0.11 BC which is pretty good, that's what I would do for punching paper at 300. Can't beat the taxan's 257 BC which is double of what other slugs can do because it's so long and skinny but I totally get what you are saying about the design.

    lol 200 yards .. doesnt matter, get something you like and can afford .. i can go waste pellets with my gamo .22 springer at 200 yards, .. pretty fun sometimes .. truth is a pellet gun has just about enough kick at 200 yards to thump something and wake it up, i would suggest a 17hmr etc ..

    I have shot my red wolf, 17 and 235 yards. In excellent conditions they shoot really really excellent.  MOA. 

    I have also shot the 25, but only with pellets. It did way better than I expected and I think it would do fantastic with slugs.

    based upon how the 22 shot at 190, it should do significantly better at 235 than the 177 did.

    I would watch for good deals on a used one.

    .22 is king here, I have them all the .30 and .25 are great, but the .22 with 30gr or above the b.c.'s are far better than the 25 or 30

    I have an M3 .22 shooting the 32.8 varmit knocker slugs at 1040fps and shoot 1 inch groups at 215yds
