.25 cal hybrids

Recommended Posts

Got my first box today and decides to try them in the fx wildcat ..it was super duper windy today .so set up in a barn at 35 yds .i didnt expect great things as this is a mk1 wc.with a smooth twist BARREL  ,no liners here  

First 8 pellets made this hole  to say im pleased and very pleasantly suprised is an understatement. 

Those are 10 x15 mm " circles " so id say thats an easy 1/2 inch group at 35 yds .

They shot at 830 ish fps over the chrono for 40 fpe  (a bit lower in energy and 50 fps slower than jsb kings  ) 

Looking forward to a longer range test without a hurricane blowing  .

Nothing wrong with that Stu, so long as they perform at range.

It's a fair hollow point, doesn't look like they should be stable or fast having such a large part missing,  but I bet they expand well?

If what they say is true, the group you get stays the same at distance. It's a cracking match to your wildcat.

I tried them in .22 used them in my fac stealth and to say I was pleased with the results would bean understatement, they are super accurate.

Villaman have you tried the other size in the hybrids? .217 or .216 whichever way round you tried. Could make all the difference.

@Longbower said he used some on squirrels a few weeks back and was impressed,  but I've no idea on the range.

I used JSB Knock out slugs at 38 yards , from my BSA R10SE FAC .22 , running at 30ft/lbs. 

I was very impressed with both the accuracy and the hitting power .

Villaman all the ones I've seen lately are .217" I remember FX saying they would be two sizes. Some other makes have three sizes as they can make all the difference.

I don’t care what size they do , I am not paying £15 per hundred ,when H&N slugs work out at £11 per 200 and with in 25 mm group at 100 yards and taken 100’s of  rabbits at 100+ yards with them . 
iI can buy 150 rounds of .22lr ammo cheaper than the over rated , over priced, over hyped FX slugs, in fact they don’t even make them but got into bed with ratsniper in the states
