    Default Kral Evo Marine - 5.5mm | Review

    I got to test a Kral EVO Marine in 5.5mm and used 2 types of pellets (only had these 2).

    1. Which pellet would you use or suggest to be used in it? (Intended use would be for plinking.)
    2. Would you use or deem mag number 4 as effective in either the 13.43's or 18.13's?
    3. Optimal speed to set it at (external adjuster similar to the AA FAC range).

    Shooting table: Plastic table
    Rest: Bipod
    Distance: 20m
    Start pressure: 200 bar
    Number of shots: 48 (4x12 shots mags each)
    Pellets used: JSB Exact RS 13.43gr 5.52mm, JSB Jumbo Heavy 18.13gr 5.52mm
    Rifle: Kral Puncher EVO Marine 5.5mm

    My final verdict on the EVO Marine:
    18.13 grainers at around 800 to 810 fps (25-26fpe) will produce good accuracy and groups. My unqualified opinion is that it is more aimed at the benchrest practitioners. Length, weight, cocking mechanism, and silver finish (glare into the scope) led me to this conclusion. All round a good rifle and value for money. Please note that these are my personal opinions and observations, other airriflers may disagree with me and or their results may vary.

    My next test will be a Kral Puncher S. Will post results ASAP.
