We're delighted to launch the new FX Hybrid Slugs, an innovative product from FX Airguns! Over the past few months, we've put these slugs through rigorous testing and the performance has far exceeded our expectations. Although these slugs have been developed primarily for FX barrels, they've also demonstrated excellent performance in different guns and barrels from other brands, such as Lothar and CZ.
The unique Hybrid design keeps the slug lightweight without sacrificing its bearing surface or height. It also features a deep hollow point. We've conducted extensive testing on these slugs using ballistics gel and dense clay, and also in real-world hunting scenarios, and they've shown excellent expansion and accuracy. We're currently testing them in different guns, barrel lengths, liners, and velocities, but so far we've achieved promising results in both the 600 & 700mm slug liners, running at velocities of 910-960 FPS.
*We have tested out of the FX Crown, FX Dreamline, FX Impact, RAW HM1000X & Taipan Veteran Standard with good results. They can be pretty tight in some barrels and it will require more effort to seat depending on the barrel diameter.
*There are many, many variables when it comes to shooting/tuning for slugs. We and FX cannot give any accuracy/performance guarantees.
*To better tailor their barrels to shooting both Hybrids and standard pellets, FX has further advanced and adjusted the specifications of their .30 Caliber Superior Standard STX liner. All rifles now being produced will come with a Superior Standard STX liner featuring a 1:26 Twist Rate.
