In the field Weihrauch Mag­num Air­gun Pel­lets

Four Sport­ing­gun ex­perts give their opin­ions on prod­ucts that they use reg­u­larly in the field

Sporting Gun - - Gear Tried & Tested -

Air­gun shoot­ers of­ten com­plain of loss of ac­cu­racy when us­ing Fac-rated air­guns due to stan­dard-weight pel­lets be­com­ing un­sta­ble at high ve­loc­ity. Heav­ier ammo, such as Ger­man-man­u­fac­tured Weihrauch Mag­num, of­fers a so­lu­tion. In­creas­ing pel­let weight can in­tro­duce a curve to tra­jec­tory but at 21.2-grains, .22 cal­i­bre Mag­nums aren’t ex­ces­sively weighty and per­form well in air­guns, pro­duc­ing muz­zle en­ergy of be­tween 30ft/lb and 40ft/lb. Formed in the clas­sic di­a­bolo shape, the de­sign is a slightly elon­gated take on the proven round­head for­mat, which has a great track record for ac­cu­racy and en­ergy trans­fer. They shine when used at FAC 0. power lev­els and de­liver a heck of a wal­lop for close-range pest con­trol at sub-12ft/lb. Sen­si­bly priced, too.
