Always be mindful of what is beyond and around your target. Because of their high BC, slugs will carry more energy further downrange than pellets. Make sure that your shooting area is safe and that you have a sufficient backstop in place when shooting these projectiles.
Introducing FX Airguns’ latest contribution to cutting-edge PCP airgunning: FX Hybrid Slugs.
Engineered from the ground up to enhance range and accuracy, these Hybrid Slugs from FX combine the most desirable attributes of both standard diabolo-shaped pellets and swaged slugs. According to FX, this results in lighter weight, a higher ballistic coefficient and the ability to be shot out of most PCPs with “massive expansion.”
“The FX Hybrid Slug will revolutionize what an airgun can do,” writes the manufacturer. “The hybrid benefits from the external dimensions of a high ballistic coefficient slug, but has a completely hollow core and deep recessed base, making it light enough to be shot from most PCPs. Its unique shape and extremely low weight, combined with an optimal bearing surface, all for velocities and trajectories that are unparalleled by any other slug or pellet.”
FX has designed the Hybrid Slugs to work well in a wide variety of barrels. Reporting that the Hybrid is actually performing better in their STX pellet liners than slug liners. This makes the Hybrid a good option for other barrel types as well, potentially matching or even outperforming standard diabolo pellets.

Things I liked: The advantages of these slugs are clear: less deflection from wind, better retaining of speed, superb expansion on contact, while still offering superior penetration of bone and skull. All while allowing on-the-fly switching between pellets and slugs. A real game changer for long shots and large targets.
Things I would have changed: Ive only found two negative issues: cost (self explanatory), and jamming. Perhaps with an extra high power gun like the FX Impact, its possible to clear accidental double loads, but with the Dreamline it is not. Double loading is all to easy with a PCP, and pulling the trigger once the second slug is loaded turns it from a day stopping error to a massive barrel jam requiring special boring tools to clear.
What others should know: If the price of these comes down, I would consider using them for nearly everything, but the ease of switching from a pellet magazine to a slug mag makes that less of a problem. The jamming issue, on the other hand, is not trivial.
Things I liked: Design of the slug. Really nice, competition-style box
Things I would have changed: Better cleaning of the slugs. Had a bit of lead flash scattered throughout the box. Lighter version would be nice, maybe something in a 18~20 grain? My steel-sprung Hatsan 125 does fire these ok, but the weight makes it harsh. 23 grain anything and the trigger bruises my finger. I think 22 grain has some piston rebound issues. Yeah, I know, never meant for a springer...
What others should know: Box slides open to dump 10 slugs at a time. Save the box! Makes a great way to carry your sorted pellets or slugs. Gauntlet has a really tight barrel, these wont fit, don't try it unless you don't mind hammering slugs backwards out of your breech like me
Things I liked: This looks like it needs a powerful PCP for it to be useful. I tried one of these Slugs in a break barrel. The fit was so tight I couldn't it seat with my thumb and had to use a tool to seat it.
What others should know: I watched a Youtube video that used a Labradar to measure the velocity at 20 Yard intervals out to 100 Yards. This was interesting so, I plugged this data into a spread sheet. The velocity percent loss per 20 Yard interval went from 4.21% for 0-20 yards to 4.45% for the 80-100 Yards. Next I calculated the %Increase in the %loss per range interval. This gave a constant %loss increase of 0.06% per range interval. This is interesting because it represents a decreasing apparent Ballistic Coefficient with range. This likely is due to the Slugs spin axis increasingly departing from its resulting velocity vector. Since the Loss% was increasing I decided to extend the calculations out to 400 Yards. I expect these are fairly close out to 150-200 yards. The 200 Yard energy is 16.7 FPE.The 400 Yard energy is also interesting having a residual of 347 FPE for 5.88 FPE, enough to cause a serious injury. Anyway I'll include a snap of the data for your inspection.

Best drag function for hybird 22 gr at 950fps??
Will these shoot well at 775 fps? What is the best speed to shoot them?
Will these work in my 22 cal fx streamline? And, will they load in the magazine?
