Long Time Air Gunner
« on: March 13, 2019, 04:08:06 PM »
Greetings,
I have been reading air gun forums for decades and this one tops the list for resource.
My favorite air gun is the FWB Sport I recently got.
Then I added a Walther Parrus after the Terrus!
Oldest gun is the Theoben Eliminator in .25 caliber--it tanked a coyote back in 2002.
I already see so much here I can't hardly wait.

Welcome to GTA!

How does your Terrus compare with your other air rifles?

Thank you for the welcome fellow air gunners!
One project is to find an ONLY lead pellet chart with guns and velocities.  With copper and other elements lightening the loads velocity has become somewhat meaningless.  I have shot the FWB .177, Terrus, Parrus, and HW 80 seeing relatively the same results in trajectory, time of flight, and impact. 

These days the advertised velocities of air guns is listed starting with alloy and "green".  However, when you use lead only from the lightest match wadcutter to the heaviest superdome buster bomb bruiser heavy.  Advertised velocity on the four guns above (all .177) is 850 fps, 1000 fps, 1300 fps, and 1000 fps, respectively.

So everyone who has felt the velocity peculiarities in advertised versus actual is WELCOME to share their beef with Alloy Pellets!
