Finally found a place to test air bolts in my Dragon Slayer.
1. Loud. Much louder that shooting round balls

;D ;D ;D 492FPS

3  cut down weight of bolt 407g

4.  Gets 218.82 FPE

5.  One mil-dot low at 30 yds

Now all I have to do is find a Dragon. 8) 8) 8) 8)


Great results,...That Slayer now is a true mean hunting machine.

One mildot low at 30 yards is excellent.

Thanks Manny, you were right about a good back stop. Since I was testing on the sly I used a portable air bolt target. It claims that it will stop any field head or broad head. I used a blunt .Blew right through it and buried it self up to the fletching about 10 yards further. Glad they were orange or I never would have found it. Hopefully the next back stop will be a hog.

I heard some people turned some pet dragons loose in Florida,  and now you can hunt them on public lands, the dragons have no natural enemies,  so the're killing the native species, time for a Florida Dragon hunt.

Them baby dragons with the poison poop are easily downed buy my libertys. A few have gone to Dragon heaven by liberty or death all ready.  Hope to go to the island of hurricanes and earth quakes to help them with their dragon problems.
One thing that seems odd to me is that the DS gets about the same FPE with bolts as it does with round ball. Thought it would be higher with bolts. Know itís deadlier with bolts.

I think that's about right, there's a point of deminishing returns and I believe as you got heavier than that it will show.


I think the only reason I got more FPE with the REX is because of the Inlane valve.

A shortened, ported/sprung Bulldog is the perfect dual purpose airgun Mike speaks of. If the shortened barrel is sized correctly to the bolts or visa versa for the diy shooter.

With safety engaged, cock the Bulldog, Put 4 cast bullets in the magazine,  leave the bolt open, with the safety engaged and holding that bolt open for a  2nd safety, slide a bolt down the barrel just shy of the magazine, then with the bolt still held open, the magazine indexed to the Empty chamber, slide the bolt into the magazine, close the bolt and check that the safety is engaged.

Shot # 1, air bolt, shot #2, 152 grain Noe cast 890 FPS, shots 3, 4,, 5 same deadly cast bullets.

If the animal is still standing, take up photography when your released from the hospital.
