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 extreme low weight, combined with an optimal bearing surface, all for velocities and trajectories that are unparalleled by any other slug or pellet.”
FX Hybrid Slugs have been designed with all PCPs in mind, but are specifically engineered in .25 caliber to deliver best performance in the FX Smooth Twist X (STX) Superior Liner.

Things I liked: Sot them out of my FX Impact at 935 fps at the muzzle. They do expand on varmints when launched at that velocity, causing damage similar to that of .22 LR HP bullets. They are also quite accurate in the FX STX Superior liner. Not JSB Exact King accuracy, but close enough. They shoot more flatly than domed pellets at the same velocity and as stated, do significantly more damage.
Things I would have changed: They are quite dirty. Expect to see lots of lead shavings everywhere as the result of the manufacturing process. Cost is high.They are expensive compared to traditional domed pellets, almost twice the cost, similar to .22 WMR ammo. If you are hunting at extended range, or are shooting larger varmints up to and including raccoons and or coyotes, they may be worth the expense.
What others should know: I assume if you are considering these it is because you plan to hunt with them. They need to be pushed to higher velocities to get expansion. I don't know the lower velocity limit at which they will not expand, but I do know they do not expand on small varmints at 750 fps or less in the .22 version. I suspect the lower limit is somewhere between 800 and 850 fps. If your .25 cal airgun won't push a 26 gr pellet at least that fast, don't expect these to perform better. In my gun, a 26 gr pellets will start at 950 fps; these slugs are 15 fps slower and yet perform impressively. Think Predator Polymags, but better out past 50 yds. The higher BC of the slugs is supposed to be an advantage at longer ranges if you can start them fast enough. Lastly, these aren't backyard projectiles in the .25! Launched at 935 fps they are packing 50 FPE. Expect richochets and pass-throughs that could be dangerous, obviously.
Things I liked: I haven't had a chance to use them yet so my review is strictly on how Pyramyd Air has the best packaging for pellets/hybrids.
Things I would have changed: Nothing, shipping was even quick considering Covid-19 had a lot of places shut down.
Things I liked: Slug on Slug at 50 yds in my Crown .25 1/8 ctc.1011fps. Thats with the new hybrid slug or pellet barrel.
Things I would have changed: The price but you get what you pay for.
What others should know: Reg. 145, hammer wheel on 2, after install heavy hammer weight.) I will have to adjust later!!!

Well this work well on a Remington model 725 vtr 25 cal
Pyramyd Air has not received any of the slugs to test.
Will this fit the FX Crown/Dreamline magazines?
We do not know. We have never seen the Hybrid slugs. Once we get some in stock we can answer that question.
Will this working in a hatsan bullboss
You can shoot the slugs. We do not know if they will fit in the magazine. They may have to be single loaded.
