Just cast around a couple hundred of the .25 41gr and they came out great.Sized a few of them to a .254 and they cycled in the  Hatsan AT44 just fine.

I just cast 50 of the  250-41-FN and they came out .254, I tried them in a marauder and they chambered very hard, I got them loaded but took a lot of effort to do so, I would like to know what size sizer to buy to make these easier to chamber in the marauder, I shot 2 out of curiosity and they shot right on at 30 yards. I did not shoot any more because of the cold weather.

If they chambered "very hard", I would try 0.252".... The bullets should be 0.002" larger at the rear driving band (design size 0.252") than at the back of the nose (design size 0.250" measured just before the smaller diameter mid-body).... It is common for bullets "as cast" to be a bit larger than designed to allow for sizing.... My 51 gr. was 0.0015" over in both places.... I would chamber a bullet and then use a wooden dowel or brass rod (with some tape around it near the back end) to drive the bullet back our through the breech and then examine it.... If the rifling marks are deep in both places, then you should be sizing a significant amount.... If only the rear marks are deep, then the chamber is a bit too short and would benefit from some polishing.... Having several sizing bushings will allow you to attain the best accuracy with any cast bullet.... The nice thing about the NOE system is that additional bushings are less than $10 each....

well I just got my mold and sizers for the NOE .25-41gr. boolit, I molded up about 200 and found out that the only size that was accurate in the marauder gen.1 with war valve, and war nbh and a 12.5 lb spring, was the .250 ones, they chambered easily and at 40 yards  8 shot group could be covered with a quarter.  The best velocity I could get was 854fps at the peak. The .252 and the .251 ones just would not shoot accurately in the marauder and they were harder to chamber in the gun.  I am caster for 20 years and powder coat my powder boolits and thought to try and powder coat these airgun boolits, I found that the powder coated ones were faster and more accurate than the lead ones. One other thing to watch for is these boolits will  ricochet  more than a standard pellet.  I usually shoot into a bullet trap but did shoot 3 times at a can and all 3 ricocheted something I don't like. I don't know what they will do at more than 40 yards but at 40 yards they did OK.  If I had the room I would try longer distance but I don't and most of my shooting is 50 yards and closer. these do hit hard and rock my pellet trap when the hit.
