.177 jsb hades

Recommended Posts

Got a tin this week .

I tried them out of my bsa bullpup at 25 yds .in my garden .

This gun a tack driver with almost every pellet i put in it .

After 10 shots id see enough -    useless 

So today i took the hades down the farm to try in my fac .177 scorpion .

My mate had his too  .

At 35 yds i shot a 5 mm hole 5 shot group with its usual jsb exact . (Control group ) .then loaded the hades in hoping for more of the same .   Massive disapointment  all over the shop .tried a full fill on my gun .the 10 shot groups wandered all over the targets .

My mate tried them in his scorp too. Same thing .rubbish ..

So thats my summing up of the new hades in .177 .dont bother .

My gun loves exact 4.53 .my mates likes the heavy version .

And we can swap  those pellets over and they both shoot well .but not these hades .they dont look very well made in my opinion. By contrast i tried some h+n hunter extreems and they shot a repectable 20 mm group in less than ideal conditions (wind in the barn ) .

So any one want to buy about  450  .177 hades

Pretty much my experience in my fx cyclone but in .22 @11.2ftlb (not smooth twist). Air arms or jsbs exacts are 10x better. But they grouped in my mates rapid mk2 at 30ftlb ok.

I’ve found them to be really good in my S410 in .22

They've grouped better than AA Diablo and shoot 25 fps faster too. There’s definitely more of a smack from them on cardboard targets but yet to try them out on the squirrels

Makes me wonder if 177 is just too small to be messed around with,  I bought a tin of heavies and extremes a couple of months ago,  not much between them, in a quick test heavies were slightly better but I do plan on trying the extremes at some point.

The hades are the same weight as Jsb heavies aren't they? And the heavies are accurate,  with different sizes available. 

I did expect you to say to say that at Fac they were much better.

I'm not convinced with the Hades in .22, no better than exacts and not as accurate at distance.

In  .22 they (Hedes)are great up to 21 ft/lbs , but after that open up a little , but not as accurate as the 18g heavies.

Tried a trail pack , of .177 ,  and found them to be just as accurate as the heavies , which were just ,and only just worse than the excellent 8.4g.

That was in my HW110 , 11.4 FT/LBS.  

For some reason AA Diablo are the guns choice, they just work.
