Review of NEO molds
« on: November 09, 2017, 07:17:49 AM »
I have been thinking of get a 250-35 pellet mold, and the 250-41 bbt mold. How ever I have not seen a review of how the shoot and preform on game, and accuracy testing. I know every gun is different and likes its own foder. How ever good ammo tends to shoot good in " most guns" so it would be worth trying.  I want to shoot heavier ammo in my 25s, the FX Wildcat and the Kral puncher breaker. I have heard that the smooth twist treks don't like heavier slug type ammo,  but I think the Kral rifled barrel work ok for bigger game. The Wildcat most likely will be wearing a LW match barrel soon any way. I just would like have a clue, if it would be worth the cost of the molds.
Any info or reports is welcome, and appreciated.

I have not shot any game yet with my .251 bbt. It drops 252 pure lead and I size them to .251, however, they are accurate out of my ace .25 to 100 yards ... 1 inch groups of 5 shots. Im having the mold sent out to include a hollowpoint version also. I have absolutely no doubt of its performance in game up to coyote size. The ace puts out 80-100 ft lbs depending on fill pressure. I will have my armada tuned this weekend to see how the 41 bbt perform in it. My jkhan .22 shoot the bbt very accurate and the hollowpoint version is devastating on small game, quick and humane. It will take raccoon and possum with no problem. They sometimes invade our property and refuse to leave by conventional means. It shoots at up to 60 ft lbs but tested at 45 ft lbs the 22 bbt hp opened up to nearly 1/2 inch in milk jug of water. If your guns will shoot them accurate, you will have not problem dispatching the appropriate size game with this round. The jkhan has a lothar walther barrel, the ace has a 1-18 twist that I believe is the same barrel as the Sumatra, though I could be wrong. Sizing for the choke in your barrel is the key to the bbt. Look up Bob (Rsterne) and his hunting pics of taking ground hogs with the bbt hp.(he also designed them  ;)) In theory the bbt shouldn't shoot out of a choked barrel and certain twist rates, but in actuality it does. The only way to know is for you to try them in your barrel. I'll be glad to ship you some foc for you to try in your guns. Pm your address if you would like.

I have used the .22 cal 30 gr. BBTs on Marmots and Ground Squirrels, and the HP versions are devastating, with accuracy comparable to a good pellet.... I have also used the .25 cal 50 gr. BBTs with similar results....
