    Yep Ballistic is a good place to get the F shot. As mentioned it is a bit on the hard side but not unlike pellets of different brands. Tofazfou shot them quite a bit and mentioned they didn’t fit in the breach for everyone. If your breach is relieved no problem but others may find it a tight fit. They are after all balls and may vary a bit as do barrels. Nice weight, I want to say ~20s but can’t recall, never weighed them. Price is up for lead so now around $42 or so. My guess pellets will be up as well.

    Wouldn’t worry about the barrel any more than I would using some pellets. Range with accuracy is limited due to balls being erratic over distance unless spun a bit.
    Dive out of a plane with a ball and try to fly with it in free fall. It zigs and zags erratically on occasion. Spin them and they are much more predictable, for a while. 😆

    Size “T” lead shot is .220. (“F” is .200)

    Anyway, I would like to try some. I dare you to find it for me–I have had no luck.

    My local gun store looked at me like I was from outer space when I asked for size “T” lead shot.

    Rob I totally agree. I was just trying to verbalize the picture in my head.

    Im thinking of getting the Co2 setup so I can shoot more. My AF pump is starting to quit, and I havent yet found an affordable replacement. One dive shop within 130 miles and they only fill to 3000PSI, crap…

    —not an attempt to hijack the thread, LOL—

    In the .25 they do well to about 25yd, on CO2. so have fun with lots of shots. I have found that the faster you shoot em the better they are beond the 25-30 yd mark. Tin can type results out to 50yd or so.

    As far as engaging rifling, some do better than others. I recovered many of these pellets after shooting steel silhouette targets. A hit expands to about nickle sized and shows the rifling marks engraved in the ball very clearly, sometimes they will be in a nice circle around the edge of the “splatted” ball, other times the rifling marks traverse in a line across the expanded slug at various angles, showing that the ball was flying “off axis” when it impacted the target. Wish I’d taken some pics of the expanded pellets now.

    I’ll always have a supply around for Sunday can kicking sessions.
    Cheap and Fun is a good combonation.

    Interesting, is it “T” or “F”? Does it still work out to be cheaper than cheap pellets?
