Testing the Polymag .35's and .25's and .22's
« on: July 24, 2017, 10:00:53 PM »
I have been wanting to test the .35 Polymags for about 2 or 3 months, and finally got the opportunity, wanted to document a real-world no frills test on video....
Decided to make it a Polymag day and ordered some .22 shorts to augment the .25's I already had.  Had to cut it short, and didnt get all of the guns out to 50 yards and further. Hopefully, I can get part 2 done in the near future shooting out to 70 and 100 yards. 
Here is the link if you are inclined to watch:

I would like to see a video of distances longer than 25 yards as a comparison to my own. Hopefully the wind won't blow when you do get a chance.

My 397 shoots the RedFires (.177 PolyMags by a different name), very well out to 25 yards. At 50 yards they fly all over the place, yet the JBS stay under 1.5 inches.

I own or have owned four .25 airguns. None would accurately shoot the PolyMags past about 30 yards. For example, my Cobra version shoots 75 yard, 3/4 inch groups using 25.4 grain AirArms pellets. The .25 PolyMag groups are over 8 inches at the same distance. They're passible at 30 yards.

My Gen 1 warmed over Marauder doesn't like them either, but again they'r e passible out to about 25 yards.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Thanks Alan.  Yea the intent was to shoot out to 70 yards, but a resident in the area got irate...that Titan is LOUD. 
I will probably have to find another place for part 2....
