BALLISTIC COMPARISON TEST OF .177 LEAD “EXACT DIABOLO 8.44 GR. AND “RWS HYPER-VELOCITY 5.2 GR. SABOT

TWO GUNS WERE USED: #1) GAMO HUNTER WITH 3X9 BUSHNELL
#2) CROSMAN 357 CO2

PARAMETERS: DISTANCE                   25 YDS.
WEATHER                                              NO WIND
PENETRATION RESISTANT
TARGET MATERIAL 2 X 10 TREATED PINE

USING A LINEAR FORTH PROPORTION EQUATION WITH THE FOLLOWING PARAMETERS:

KV= KNOWN VELOCITY IN FPS
XV= UNKNOWN VELOCITY
DPD= DIABOLO PENETRATION DEPTH (IN CENTIMETERS)
SPD= SABOT PENETRATION DEPTH
APD= ADDITIONAL PENETRATION DEPTH: SPD – LPD
DELTA V= CHANGE IN VELOCITY

KNOWN VALUES: GUN #1) KV = 1000 FPS

GUN #2) KV = 445 FPS

CALIBER                                      = .177
LENGTH IN CM OF PELLET = 8
RESULTS USING LEAD 8.44 GR. GUN #1

ACCURACY: 3 ROUNDS IN 2 INCH BULL AT 25 YDS.

DPD    = 13 CM

RESULTS USING SABOT 5.2 GR. GUN #1

ACCURACY: NO NOTICEABLE CHANGE

DPD  = 21 CM   21 – 13 = APD OF 8

EQUATION:             XV: LPD = KV: APD
XV:  13    = 1000:  8
8XV = 13000
XV =   1625 FPS
1625 – 1000 = 625 FPS
625 DIVIDED BY 1000 X 100 = 62.5%

A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE!!

WARNING….PELLET WILL NOT DEFORM, PASSING THROUGH SMALL GAME…ONLY ETHICAL SHOT IS HEAD SHOT

RESULTS USING LEAD 8.44 GR. GUN #2

ACCURACY: 3 ROUNDS IN AN 8 INCH BULL AT 25 YDS.

DPD = 2 CM

RESULTS USING SABOT 5.2 GR. GUN #2

ACCURACY: 3 ROUNDS IN A 2 INCH BULL AT 25 YDS.

A REMARKABLE INCREASE FOR A CO2 HAND GUN!!!

DPD = 8CM     8 CM – 2 = APD OF 6

EQUATION:          XV: LPD = KV: APD
XV:   8     = 445:   6
6 XV = 3569
XV = 593.3 FPS
593.3 – 445 = 148.3 FPS
148.3 DIVIDED BY 445 X 100 = 33.3%

AGAIN, A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE FOR A CO2 PISTOL

CONCLUSION: USING RWS SABOT PELLETS ACHIEVES A 33.3% INCREASE IN MUZZLE VELOCITY WITH ASTONISHING ACCURACY.

ADDITIONAL INCLUSION OF ENERGY:

GUN#1 = 8.44 GR. VELOCITY =1000 FPS… ENERGY = 18.75 FOOT POUNDS
“         = 5.2 GR.            “           = 1625 FPS…        “           =  30.5        “           “

GUN#2 = 8.44 GR.  VELOCITY = 445 FPS…ENERGY =   3.71   FOOT POUNDS
“        = 5.2   GR.           “           = 593 FPS… ENERGY =   4.07         “          “

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE RWS SABOT HYPER-VELOCITY PELLET.
HOWEVER AT $10 PER 200 COUNT THEY ARE A BIT COSTLY BUT NO LEAD MAKES THEM GREEN. IF YOU ARE USING A CO2 PELLET GUN THIS IS THE AMMO FOR YOU….
