    👍 It will be nice to see if they will work for me. Since NSA changed production methods their .177 slugs don't do it anymore.

    I you can bet i keep my eye on the zan store,,,,,, tough yesterday morning firing up my PC, the damn PC screen was dead, so now i have to go pick up a new one tomorrow, making a dent in my available funds.And forcing me onto my laptop.

    But worry not i will still take five boxes of 13 – 16 and 20 grain packages.

    I was shooting my Vulcan 3 today, and winds not being as low as i liked them to be shooting pellets, but fortunately i had tossed a ttin of 13 grain KO and some left overs in a tin with 15 grain NSA in my ammo suitcase. so i changed my aim to the 90 M and put up a front fender from a 1985 Dodge ram charger to stop my slugs.

    I dont know if it is normal, but shooting the fender i was able to clear large areas of paint, and more than just the immediate impact point of the slug.

     

    TBH i am thinking why shoot pellets at all, so i think i will just focus on slugs and then only shoot pellets in emergencies or like really really good weather

    Nice Søren.

    I really like t he look of hose heavier slugs, 10 grainers to me look a bit silly 13 is OK, 15 and up just look good.

    Very on edge to hear about performance even if you shoot guns that are somewhat different from mine. weather look doable not least Thursday if you can be lucky with the showers.

    Wasted 3000 Dkkr on a new PC screen today, turns out it was my GFX card that broke,,,,, so i need to spend a additional 5-6000 to get up and running again, but that will have to wait for a while, which is ok my CPU can do video encoding just fine.

     

    Okay i do enjoy my new 32" screen :.-)

    Any limitations firing 10 – 13 grain with a 7-8 FPE gun?   Would this be enough?

    I normally dont do so, but just pre-ordered 5 tins of the 13 grains and 5 tins of the 16 grains.

    Nice Søren.

    I am thinking about getting single shot trays for both my guns, most of all to slow down the dispensing of lead, if i am not careful it wont be long and i have shot +500 shots, and that is manual loading MAGs not even using my speed loaders, which for the pellets it work with are much – much faster.

    I am not seeing groups like that on either of my rifles, but i think it is doable even if it is slightly cheaper stuff.

    Just ordered 5 BX 13 grain and 5 BX 20 grain at Zan homepage, looking forward to shoot those ( mainly 13 grain ) the 16 and 20 will be for special occasions, like trying really long range with .177.
