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?
