97 grain 357 pellet
« on: April 21, 2017, 01:17:59 PM »
Got a chance to take my ace 357 down to the range and try some of Rick Morrill's 97 grain pellets. They hit hard and they are accurate. More accurate than me for sure, that goes for the pellet and the gun. The 100 yard is measured off but nothing else at the private range I shoot at, so I step off ranges unless I have the time to pull a measurement. Call it 75 ish yards with the 97 grain. My gun shoots the 97 grain about 920 at the top of the bell.  They have a nice flat meplat on the nose and make a serious sound when they hit the wood backing on the target I had set up. Shot a quick 5 shot group and am well pleased with the performance of this pellet. Nice heavy hitter. I also like his 84 grain version as it also has the flat on the nose.

Ace precision titan. 400cc dual tube with the barrel incapsulated in the upper tube. I get 20 shots with lighter bullets/pellets in the 81-85 grain range, but keep it in the 10 shot range for anything approaching 100 grain. A few people have them, I think 10 were imported.
 Its the gun in the middle of the picture below.
