If so where 1500 fps velocities as claimed
my friend fetched some boxes back along with a few k.fasteel from his annual spring snow goose hunt in texas.,he hadnt actualy shot any on his triponly using the f.steel,so when he came to visit me on a fowling trip we went to chrono /pattern test them in my back field.
they were fed b.cloud 11/2oz bb ,got set up at 50yrd and fired one round ,the recoil was ferocious and more than i was prepared to take from a 12ga (win.x3)i threw the towel in-they actualy stung my trigger finger,the spent shell ejected about 20ft
- listed 1500fps actual 1420fps so they were no where near.,or possibly would /could be either in reality, pattern approx 70% .
lord knows why your interested in those things,i found the wad,its thick black plastic without slits and has 2 fins leading out from it.-no wonder the recoil was so intense.
