If the sound of a hybrid slug hitting its target vs. a pellet hit means anything, I'd say hybrid slugs much more effective.

And speaking of sound, I still can't figure out why 26 grain hybrid slugs have far less muzzle blast than 25.39 grain pellets do, shot out of the same barrel liner?

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

There is a new article on H.A.M.... It deals with work by Miles Morris on possible drag models for typical airgun slugs....

https://hardairmagazine.com/ham-columns/some-new-airgun-slug-drag-models-by-miles-morris/

It is theoretical in nature, but provides some insight into the anomalous results we are seeing compared to the commonly used G1 drag model....
