Pellet firing cartridges vs. pellet firing cartridges Part 2 Part 1
The Long Game
by Dennis Adler
I have to admit to a certain degree of disappointment with Tuesday’s test of front and rear loading pellet firing cartridges. The difference in both velocity and accuracy were greater than I expected. Was it the gun, the CO2, or just that there is that great a difference between the two types of pellet loading shells? To get another answer I have changed guns to the ASG Dan Wesson Model 715 with 6-inch barrel and the two types of ASG Dan Wesson pellet loading cartridges. The longer barrel should help bring the pellets up to factory spec which is 410 fps. Today’s ambient temperature is 60 degrees, sunny and light wind. The Meisterkugeln 7.0 gr. Professional Line wadcutters will be chronographed the same way with two sets of six rounds for each cartridge type and an overall average velocity. The test will also be shot at 21 feet, which is close for a 6-inch rifled barrel revolver; this is a solid 10 meter gun, but the idea is consistent accuracy. So, one more time down the rabbit hole.
