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: These are accurate in my kral puncher knight and in my sons kral puncher breaker. They do have a higher bc than pellets and seem to shoot flatter at distance. We shoot hades up close on 3/4 power and turn it up to full for the hybrids without having to change the point of aim much.
Things I would have changed: Cleaner pellets. Be prepared to clean up a lot of lead shavings and dust when you dump a row out of the packaging. My main use for these is hunting, obviously. My limited experience shooting a starling at 15 yds and a eurasian collared dove at about 30 yds is this: it killed them both, instantly. ( how do you argue with dead pests?) However, the exit holes indicated little to no expansion of the slug, which is supposed to be a big selling point. I would like a slug that does what it purports to do: shoot flatter, hit harder, and expand. Thats why we pay more-for hunting there is supposed to be a distinct advantage over pellets. The expansion is missing.
What others should know: I made some ballistic gel (not calibrated according to FBI standards, but close enough) and shot both guns into it using these slugs. Penetration was 6.5 and 7.5 inches, respectively. The disappointing aspect was they did not expand beyond .22 caliber. They penciled through. If I want that I will use H&N sniper magnums! I have shot lots of different pellets into gel. The hollowpoint ones generally expand, some very well, even at 750 fps. We doctored 3 slugs using the tip of a small phillips screwdriver and shot them. They penetrated 3.5, 4.5, and 3.5 inches and expanded to twice the diameter and left a decent permanent wound channel, which is what I truly want on pests. I do not know how much that alteration of the hollowpoint affects the accuracy because I havent shot for groups with the altered ones yet. I believe they would still be quite accurate and much more devastating on small game. I hope to report the use of the altered slugs on game soon.
Things I liked: Total devastation on critters!!!!!
Things I would have changed: Nothing at this point Im sure price will go down as they ramp up production
What others should know: There spendy But there devastating on the critter Touch them there done Very accurate Try them you will like them
Things I liked: The one that cycled though my gauntlet were had a very nice group at 30 yards. They fit in the magazine.
Things I would have changed: The diameter wasn't very uniform some would get jammed in the chamber and not shoot.
What others should know: These may cause a problem in the 22 gauntlet. I tried 25 of these and 10 of those got stuck in the chamber. I had to knock them out with a ram rod. I got an average of 712 fps from my factory gauntlet. They are difficult to chamber due to the slightly over sized diameter. I believe that h&n has an offering with a slightly smaller diameter that may work better in the gauntlet barrel. I would not buy these again for this rifle though I want 100 percent reliability in the field. I do hate that i couldn't test them further.

Can you shoot these out of a stock fx dream bull pup or do I need a different barrel liner.
You could shoot them. The barrel on the Dreamlite is optimized for JSB pellets. How well these slugs will shoot we cannot predict.
When will the .25 cal hybrids be released?
Will these slugs work in my RWS Diana 34 .22 breakbarrel?
They are a bit heavy but they should work. they will not shoot very fast.
