100 yard groups * Daystate Airwolf * 22.5 grain swaged slugs
« on: January 22, 2016, 09:31:19 PM »
Went to the range today for .22 caliber slug testing.  I brought my Daystate Airwolf because it is my most accurate and favorite gun to shoot.  Today's wind was not too high going left to right.  Groups posted were best of the day when wind was the calmest at the gun range in Azusa, CA.

These are .217 diameter, 22.5 grains, hollow point, flat base swaged pellet / slug off my hydro press, all pictures are 100 yard groups.

These can be made in .218 also, some have reported they are loose in their barrel.  They fit my Daystate really nice.

I just added Paypal on my site.  Select the slug you want and use Paypal at checkout.  I would order .218, it seems to work in more guns than .217 and my gun can fire the .218 or .217.  I believe these are out of stock but I will check, they take a day or two for me to make depending on our current orders.

How fast would you say they need to go for them to be accurate?

I shoot JSB 18s around 940 in this gun to give an idea of the power of my gun. That is my Airwolf on max power.

The 22 seem more picky to guns than the. 25s. Mine gun loves them but not everyone getting same results. Would be easier to makes slugs if manufacturers built to some sort of a standardized barrel size and twist per caliber.  Being a free for all it is hard for anyone to know without a lot of trial and error.

Yes, I think they will like some extra spin on these.

I've tried them in the TJ barrel, the 18.1 JSB is running at 920fps.
I think I need to up the power quite a bit, because right now at 30yds they cannot group any better than 1.5" ctc.
Chrony will help determine how fast they actually are going. But right now it's too hot to mess with anything outside, 110F...120 on Monday....yeah I live on Mercury

It could be the twist rate too. If the tj is slow they may not not work. I think my twist rate is 17 or 18 and I do not know what tj is.  Trying high fps is worth checking for sure.

For sure, the TJ's are 1 in 24" which is much slower than 1 in 17"
