Hybrid Bullet / Pellet Poll

This poll is to find out what weight you would like to see for a bullet such as is being discussed in this thread.... Only 1 choice in the poll to force you to choose your most preferred weight....  :P

Here is a preliminary concept drawing.... These would have to be cast, it is the molds that would be available, although if we got a successful design we could look into having them produced, of course.... right, Travis?....



There are a lot more people with .25 cal airguns, so it seems logical to start there.... The concept, if successful, could be scaled up (or down) for other calibers, of course.... Shorter, lighter bullets would require a redesign of the nose.... it would need to be "blunter" to keep a long enough bearing area.... either a larger Meplat, or a smaller Ogive Radius, or both....

  Truely something that needs to be perused in my opinion and The Guild will foot the bill! If we can make a bullet behave and shoot well like pellets do in a PCP then we really have something. Im sure it will take a few different molds to get right but lets hope we can do it period!!

This would be awesome.  I shoot a WARP so any size would work but i think you should try a 41-45 so it could be available to more people.
