I would like some info regarding slugs. How do you know if your barrel can shoot them? I am afraid of damaging my barrel.
I have a Priest in 5.5mm, the 15,89gr run at an ave of 950fps, the 18.13gr run at an ave of 910fps.
I got hold of a few NSA 22,5gr slugs to test, initial accuracy was good, and chrony was.....780fps
I cannot change the regulator pressure without major surgery, so slugs are out on the Priest, but
My Airforce Talon is another thing, when I get more slugs, they will be used in the Talon, due to the "adjustability" of the weapon
That is a project all on it's own
How do you get hold of the NSA slugs in this country? I have a Huben K1 and it was born for slugs but alas I cannot source them. - I would prefer a heavier slug tho, something like 34gr or so.
With the recent peaks of interests into slugs in the air rifle community I don't know why the major manufacturers(like JSB etc) havnt jumped on board the hype train.
