Shorter .30 cal NOE Pellet - Mag. Length?
« on: August 10, 2018, 01:45:25 PM »
I know there are some magazines that the .30 cal pellet I designed for NOE won't fit, and there have been some guys saying they would like a bit lighter pellet.... Here is a shorter design that I would like to submit to Al for a Group Buy, but before I do, I want to make sure it will fit all, or at least most, of the PCP mags. out there.... NOTE CHANGE, SEE POST BELOW....



Please measure your mags. and let me know if this will work for you, and the make and model of gun.... The head is exactly the same as the current 59-66 gr. NOE .30 cal pellet, but the skirt is shorter.... The plan is to use the same three base pins.... If you don't give me the length information on your mags. it will be too late after the tooling is done and the moulds are in production to complain....

OK, change of plans here.... I talked to Al this morning, and he would prefer to make a second .30 cal mould with more difference in weight from the existing moulds, with no overlap in the weights between the designs, so I have done another drawing of the new shorter version....



When I was talking to Al I mentioned the FX magazines being too short for even this design, and he said he spent a couple of days talking to Frederik of FX and apparently they designed the FX guns around the JSB pellets, and since he doesn't want to go "head-to-head" with JSB he suggested that we go this route, even though they won't fit the FX without using a single shot tray.... I am pretty sure that this pellet will fit any PCPs other than the FX, so this is likely what we will proceed with.... However, we would still like your input, so please share your opinions....  The current .30 cal pellet, which is 1.5 calibers long and weighs 59-66 gr. would still be produced.... so there would be two .30 cal moulds available from NOE....
