    I have a tin of predators. From what I have seen (shot), its not better than a 5mm lead pellet. The penetration is still the same. I shot a penetrator and a diabolo in a piece of supawood and both pellets had the exact same effect.

    On my rifle the Diabolos grouped better.

    My opinion - Not realy worth the money.

    Hi Arsniper. When I stripped it found the spring was broken and the O ring on the piston badly pitted. It is still in pieces until I can find some spares.

    IAN,
    Were you shooting Diablo or diabolo pellets?

    I've shot with both predators and Crow Magnums in my Anxor .20
    The Crow Magnums are beter, they really expand well. Just shoot it into prestic and you will see that it mushroom perfectly. The predators are also very good as far as hollow point go. I've just found that the part that fold back tears off while the crow magnums are retaining its weight better. Its the most accurate .20 hollowpoint pellet I've ever shot with.

    My AA .20 loves the predators, never tried the Crows yet.

    jip. supawood test does nothing for expansion. Shoot into a ball of clay and do a autopsy on the clay. Must be a bigish block though. Or if you have some ballistics gell we can start our own mythbusters program.

    Im not talking about expansion. Surely the softer the lead the bigger the expansion. The DIABOLO penetrates deeper than the Predator...

    Hi Ian, you are right.. at the same time you rather should work on transfer of energy or rathe impact than penetration. Most of what gets shot with a pellet gun the pellet just goes through. Even up to 50m. For shooting at quary surely you want impact rather, or am I misunderstanding what is required?

    The point Im trying to make -

    In MY rifle the Diabolo grouped much better. Im shooting 5mm pellets for xtra knock down power. Accuracy is more importent than impact or penetration.

    Surely 30 fpe with a 5mm pellet could kill any small quary.

    not if it goes through without doing the damage. All it means is that you may also penetrate the three standing behind it. What you require is that 30flbs energy to be transfered to the 1st target and the pellet not to go through is what I am trying to say..

    30flbs is a lot of energy so i think any pellet is inevitably going to shoot rigt through any air rifle qaurry.

    it takes 9ftlbs to kill a person im sure a .20 at 30flbs could kill a bushpig or a bushbuck cleanley, but thats where the most crucial part of air rifle hunting comes in. SHOT PLACEMENT.
