not any shops around here sell lead rounds anymore....copper jacketed seems to be the only thing in stock.Of course you can order the lead rounds.....just curious in case i was in desperate times waiting for a order to come in.

I would think they would have too much resistance in an airgun barrel.... For sure you would have to have an exact fit to even have a hope of them working....

Airguns do not like copper.  It's not slick enough and usually gets stuck in the barrel.

That's pretty light.....there are two such options here http://www.cowboybullets.com/Products.html#38Cal in SamYang .45's it sometimes pays off to order some un-sized slugs to try alongside the sized ones but .358 should be right in there diameter-wise.

I tried a copper jacketed bullet .... once.  Got stuck.
And  I tried a copper plated bullet.... once.  Got stuck.  I thought the copper on the plated bullets might be thin enough to work, but the plating on the one I had was about .003 thick, and I was expecting more like .0005. 
I agree, copper and airguns don't go together.

Wait a second !!!


Most barrels out there are .357-.358,...if the JSB pellet is a true 9mm like it looks to be,.......it will turn out to be just about useless .

never seen them????I ended up ordering 3 diff. Bullets to try out though....105 gr Rattler..130 gr round nose in 38 cal. and 127 gr flat point in the .357!I like a heavier bullet but I'm searching for the happy medium so I dint have to sacrifice so much range.

If you have a barrel that those big .35/9mm JSB's fit, it looks like they ought to shoot pretty well.  The make the Eun Jins look like they were whittled out with a hatchet.  It would be interesting to know what they actually measure.

I hear a rumour that JSB are also bringing out a .30 cal Exact.... I'm guessing they will be around 50 gr.... let's hope they fit a .308 groove barrel....  As far as the 9mm designation goes, that's what they call the EunJins and they are TIGHT in a .357 bore.... so we won't know until they hit the shelves.... One thing that actual pellets will have going for them compared to bullets is that they: 1. have less in contact with the bore, and 2. will tend to obturate with the hollow skirt.... I'm betting that will make them quite forgiving as to barrel diameter....

The .30 cal is 46gr I belive, and it's being designed for the .303 Wolve

Ok I just got a NIB old stock Fire 201 9mm. Anby Idea what bullet I should run through it. Guy gave me a couple of tins of the Korean 77 grainers. Forgot what Jeff was running through his. One of the bullet makers site is down, think it is the one you use Manny.
