FX new slugs

Recommended Posts

To my mind he should develop these as a priority  over the .25 and .30 / .35 .

As there are more .177 pellets sold in the world than all the other cals combined .

I will keep with my 21g H&N slugs for now , as these work in both FX liners , can’t wait for H&N .25 slugs around the 30gr 

JSB should be out with there slugs very shortly with softer lead than H&N, should be good

Took the words out if my mouth, Villaman JSB will be scrambling to get slugs to market.

They won't want to miss out on such a big market.

There are quite a few slug manufacturers now.

JSB have tried a few times with slug design but could not get them to work , apparently they have found the right design now 

that’s what they said in a email I had back from them a few weeks ago

We have a slug maker in uk . pro hunter 

but can’t get them to work in my fx guns , not just me , but others around the country I have spoken too 

plus about £25-30 per 100 compared to £11 per tin of 200 delivered to your door from Germany for H&N slugs

Seen another slug make in the USA but can't remember the sodding name began with A they looked ok same design with hollow point. Suppose they all will be to keep weight down.

Matt Dubber has just put a video up of him shooting the new FX Hybrid slugs.

Some good info from the field shooting them.

25 m zero and oy 2.3 mils holdover at 100 m he is shooting them at 980 FPS

68.whiskey also have a video of them shooting the Hybrid slugs to good effect.

Don't need perfect shot placement with the expansion, it rips them apart.

I've been on airgun 101 Giles WebTV channel a few times after he launched it. Only thing is I watch most videos on YouTube app on my smart TV. Now figured out how to web channels/websites in the web browser on it.

Ultrastu if you go on it you could have told us about all the FX slug videos 😁

Found the other slug manufacturer I mentioned earlier, avs he's a one man band selling on eBay.

Stu not having a dig mate, was to tongue in cheek.

Soon as the .22 become available I'll try some to see what speed and accuracy or lack of.

.177 should be better suited to our guns and power.
