Airguns are rapidly evolving. What a modern PCP airgun can do these days is simply staggering. These last few years, the techonology, efficiency, and abilities have exponentially increased. The modern shooter needs innovative ammo that can shoot longer and still retain high precision accuracy.
The standard diabolo pellet shape helps maximize accuracy with airgun barrels with its low bearing surface and ability to shape itself to the barrel. Its limitations in drag and quick loss of energy, simply cannot maximize the potential of the modern PCP airgun.
Many have turned to standard swaged slugs with their much better ballistic coefficients (BC), but they have their problems as well: The surface area and weight of the standard slug demands extreme amounts of pressure. Their accuracy is also more temperamental and demand an unforgiving perfect fit with the airgun barrel.
To solve all these issues FX presents a new Hybrid Slug that is a perfect blend of pellet and slug. It has a higher ballistic coefficient, is lighter in weight, and can be shot out of most PCPs with massive expansion.
The FX Hybrid Slug will revolutionize what an airgun can do. The Hybrid benefits from the external dimensions of a high ballistic coefficient slug, but has a completely hollow core and deep recessed base, making it light enough to be shot accurately by most PCPs. Its unique shape and extreme low weight, combined with an optimal bearing surface, allow for velocities and trajectories that are unparalleled by any other slug or pellet.
With the FX Hybrid you get a flatter trajectory with less wind drift, more retained energy, and much more accuracy at longer distances than any pellet; all with massive expansion for hunting. This unique patented design is unleashing the possibilities of both the distance and the accuracy you can achieve with an airgun.
These Hybrid Slugs are designed with all PCP airguns in mind, but are specifically tailored to the FX Smooth Twist X (STX) Liner.
