In the field Weihrauch Magnum Airgun Pellets
Four Sportinggun experts give their opinions on products that they use regularly in the field
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.
