Quote from: Dairyboy on September 19, 2018, 03:17:12 PMAny luck with Nick's slugs?Yeah they were one hole on my 25 yard range at the house. I took it to the range and at 50 yards they opened up to 2 inches, and at 100 yards I could not hit paper. I think they were spiraling. I didn't take my pins with me, so I couldn't adjust power at the range, I was set a bit below max power at 31fpe, which is what I keep it at for JSB 18gr.One of these days soon, I'll be at the range to shoot the winnie some more, and I'll try again, set to 35-38fpe, and see if that helps stabilize them.
Any luck with Nick's slugs?

Hi friends again,I am already on the final line and ask for the last (I promise!) For advice:I have the following three options in front of me because only from Balistas (Czech Republic) can I take Taipan without a customs charge (+ $415 ):1. Taipan Veteran Long 6,35mm Laminatehttps://www.balistas.com/air-rifles/taipan-air-rifles/taipan-veteran-standart-635mm-laminate/High is the price: 1 329.4 + 16 transport and honestly (not that the others are cheap ...) but they also wrote to me that for the moment they will not load / sell another option at 6.35 / .25 ...Also, it seems to me pretty heavy for a bullpup - 3.9 kilograms + Athlon Argos BTR 6-24x50 MIL = 839.15 grams = 10.45 pounds ... I find it too heavy for me to shoot in a straight line and walk long in the mountain ... 2. Taipan Veteran Standard 5.5mmhttps://www.balistas.com/air-rifles/taipan-air-rifles/taipan-veteran-55mm/The price is: 1 251.0 + 16 transport which is acceptable as an amount ... The difference is not big compared to this price in .25 but for the difference I can buy another need ...The weight is: 3.2 kilograms + 839.15 grams optics = 8.91 pounds which is different from 10.45 => 1.54 pounds ...The bad thing for me is that I wanted the rifle to be in .25 caliber but what I can buy is very heavy in my opinion and expensive as a price because of the laminate. I wanted Standard but will not sell ... Another Brand as a Possible Purchase Option:3. Calibrgun Cricket Mini Carabine 5.5mm https://www.balistas.com/air-rifles/kalibrgun-air-rifles/kalibrgun-cricket-mini-carabine-55mm/Price: 1 274.1 + 16 transport which is also acceptable as an amount ...Weight is: 3.24 kilograms of rifle + 839.15 grams optics = 8.99 pounds which is different from 10.45 => 1.46 pounds ...I know the brand is known as very good but I do not know anything about this model ... but as a size and price comes into my budget.Taipan likes like reviews and data but I hope a lot of advice? Thanks in advance!
Hello again,For information only - Taipan Veteran Long 25 at Balistas.com has a CZ barrel which makes me strange because I have always (think) in 25 caliber with LW barrel?Asking something else even though it is not on this topic - is the new X barrel at FX like the old ST at which if I decide to shoot with slugs instead of the usual JSB should I buy a new barrel special for slugs?Greetings.
I was wrong to say ... I mean if someone has a Taipan Veteran Long .25?
QuoteI was wrong to say ... I mean if someone has a Taipan Veteran Long .25? Not to my knowledge, but I am pretty sure somebody is building one right now. And one in .20!
Hello not to be bad but if it was Standard I would have taken it almost immediately ...
If I had the choice of a CZ barreled .25 long I'd buy it in a heartbeat!
QuoteIf I had the choice of a CZ barreled .25 long I'd buy it in a heartbeat! IN A HEARTBEAT! If I could purchase a .25 Long that had a CZ barrel on it I'd buy it in a New York minute. I HAVE a Vet Standard in .25 with a LW barrel. Someone please post a link to the Long in CZ .25. I'll sell my .25 LW Standard tomorrow if I can get a CZ Long .25. I have a Long in CZ .22, and it is lights out accurate. I AM A BELIEVER in CZ!
