    Things I liked:

    Very accurate out of my m3. I'm getting 1.5" groups at 100 yards not sub moa buy good enough for me.

    Things I would have changed:

    Packaging, I'm not a fan of it rather see them ship in a bag like nsa's. Pricing seems a little steep compared to other brands.

    What others should know:

    If your shooting an fx I contacted there tech support and they give me a tune for my gun which was very helpful to get me started.

    Things I liked:

    Packaging is cool. Feels very individualized.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add some kind of tool to seat the slug the same every time.

    What others should know:

    These were hard to seat the same every time on my .30 cal. HATSAN BREAK BARREL. Perhaps they seat more consistently in another gun. Great looking slug though.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate slug that produces higher velocity due to it's lighter weight. The extra velocity aids in achieving explosive expansion and a flat trajectory. Terminal performance on small game like squirrels is impressive, with massive fragmentation causing multiple exit wounds at 85fpe energy levels. Performance is also impressive on groundhogs, delivering DRT bodyshots, while being accurate enough for off hand 50 yard headshots. The surface finish of the slugs are like glass, and is significantly better than the surface of my previous go to ammo, NSA slugs. The minor burs in the hollow point don't effect the rounds accuracy, and I have successfully taken game at 100 yards reliably with my FX Maverick VP .30cal shooting the FX Hybrids Slugs at 930fps.

    Things I would have changed:

    The ammo is expensive, almost twice as expensive as similar NSA slugs. They should offer these is 500 round bulk packages at a reduced price. I've had to slit the paper sleeve in order to get the ammo out of the package, which is a pain. I wish they just had a paper cover like a pellet lid so it would be easier to pop back on after getting a dozen slugs out to fill my magazine.

    What others should know:

    Since this ammunition has shown a tendency to fragment, it may not be a good fit for larger game where more penetration is needed. I have yet to test this ammo out on coyote sized game.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate and sustained velocity. These slugs work great in LESHIY 2.

    What others should know:

    The slugs are exactly .30 cal this can cause the slugs to fall out of open end magazines such as the Leshiy 2.

    Things I liked:

    Packaging is nice to prevent any dings on the slugs. I can get around 930 fps before they get a bit squirrely out of my fx impact mk3. Thats about 85 fpe.

    Things I would have changed:

    Really nothing

    What others should know:

    These slugs are shooting about the same as jsb pellets which is nice. Holds a pattern less then a 1/2" at 50 yards. My impact is originally a .35 caliber gun so with some more range time it should tighten up.

    Things I liked:

    The .30 cal Hatsan BT 65 hasn't been a tack driver for me. Their .22 and .177's definitely have. Purchased a couple boxes of the 44.5g FX slugs, to satisfy my curiosity. They've decreased the spread from over 2 inches at 50 yds to less than an inch. This will be a lot more fun now.

    Things I would have changed:

    A bit pricey, but what isn't these days. They are all in individual sockets in the box, so that's something.

    What others should know:

    I'd ordered some other pellets, too, and everything was packaged with the usual Pyramyd Air finesse.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate at close and long distances when shooting through the impact m3 30 cal with superior liner

    Things I would have changed:

    Price is high compared to some other slugs available. 200 count for current price would be fair.

    What others should know:

    Shoot them around 965 fps to achieve best accuracy. Expansion is awesome when it hits the target.

    Things I liked:

    Slugs were clean, no bent skirts, slugs are accurate out of my hercules bully. Hits hard. GOOD EXPANSION ALSO

    Things I would have changed:

    Even though they are slugs, need more per container. 125 at least up to 150 or reduce the price.

    What others should know:

    Haven't had a chance to shoot any game with them but just from shooting them at targets and seeing the exit hole they make/leave, I'm sure deer won't stand a chance. At 55 yrds they grouped great and my avg fps was 920. I will buy these in 4 pks so that way 1 pk is free. Helps make up for the price. I'm not really a slug shooter, just wanted to try them and I would suggest them to air gunners if you plan to shoot slugs.

    Things I liked:

    Not much. My first shot out of a 20 shot group was a 12 o'clock center. After that they were totally inconsistent. At 25 yards from a bench rest, 16 grouped to 2 inches. Three shots were bad flyers 4 inches off center. One really bad flyer at 5 inches off center.

    Things I would have changed:

    FX needs to test and tune their ammo in their rifles. My owners manual says they test with JSB and my experience with JSB in my FX rifle is excellent. However, it speaks volumes when you support your competitor's product over your own and my test above makes you want to scratch your head.

    What others should know:

    The packaging is nice and you would think it would keep the slugs in perfect shape. Not so much, I could tell by looking at them that they weren't all perfect. That may account for the flyers I had. However, for a hunting slug in an air rifle there needs to be a confidence and consistency level. I would never take these slugs into the field because 5 inches could either be a total miss or an injuring shot that does not totally dispatch the game. 5 inches... Sorry.

    Things I liked:

    This is the most accurate slug out of my 700mm .30 Impact M3, and I tried 13 different slugs in the 44 to 54gr range from all the major manufacturers. The FX slugs have all been in good condition with almost no rejects to date. They are right around 1MOA out to 200 yards for me.

    What others should know:

    If you factor in the Pyramyd buy 3 get 1 free pricing, these are the second cheapest .30 slugs out there and only slightly more expensive than the cheapest options. If you have an FX, try a pack of these first so you know if you are wasting time with other slugs. My M3 is stock (no slug power kit add-ons) and I'm shooting them in the (current) standard 1:22 superior barrel. Final reg at 150 bar, hammer setting at 4.5 minus 3 clicks on the micro adjuster, valve wide open, speed 957 fps. They could potentially tighten up even more at higher speeds but I don't want to go higher on the reg and lose shot count. Also, if you are shooting a .30 FX, you need to know what twist rate your barrel is. FX has changed the twist rates on .30 superior barrels a few times so you can't just go by name, you need to measure it.
