    Default new pellet design...

    I have just returned from Italy where I visited a ballistics company - ?Rosset? who do the development work for a number of well known gun makers but also market their own products under various trade names.
    One such product is an airgun pellet with a difference. They are sold under the brand name of Porall Fio, are about the weight of a Bisley Magnum ? 21 grains ? but what makes them unique is the ?charge? in the tip.
    It is basically no more than the ?banger? used in some toy guns, however because it is released in such a confined space i.e. the inside of a rabbit or squirrel?s head is has a devastating effect. I recovered the body of a squirrel and it was totally decapitated. I have never seen anything like them.
    Would any forum members be interested in any more details?

    taking orders soon...they come in .177 and .20 and should cost about R2.50 per pellet...

    Only drawback is you need to apply for a blackpowder licence in order to use them....

    Guido , I reckon you suckered a lot more guys than admit to it .

    I did'nt pick up the anagram , I thought it was a feasable idea all the same .

    There are those chinese crackers you spill on the ground that people skrik when they step on them !

    Some of that in a hollow point ? ? Hmm ! I wonder ?

    I reckon your joke could get a few experimenters going !

    I actually picked up the joke on the UK airgun BBS...I got suckered into it as well..hehe

    I remember as kids we used to scrape the tips off matches and fill the skirts of pellets with the combustible stuff.
    Made cool tracer pellets at night...
