Okay most of the bullets/pellets are going out Saturday. I have paid for everything and will cover the postage tommorrow as well and then will email each of you with the total costs. Please send the total ASAP and remember if you are paying with PayPal they take 3% for each transaction. I don't mind supplying the labour but I can't have any charges not covered.

Now for the BAD news all Piledrivers are GONE but if there is enough interest I may be able to contact the supplier for more.

So thanks everyone, and please email pictures of the results using the Piledrivers for either hunting or target shooting along with comments. And as well phone or email your airgun shops and request they carry these bullets/pellets if you are happy with the results.

Take care, Randy

Hi Guy's,
This is just a thought that I'd like to mention to all of you who have odered these great "PileDrivers" that "Randyhub" has done for all of us, who have an order in with him. I am going to add alittle extra bit more cash for his effort, and all of that extra work he had to do in the packaging, and the Post Office work he had to do in this special offering to us guy's here in the "CAF". I'm adding alittle bit more to my order for the effort he has put out for us again... :wink: It's just the right thing to do for him, and his help :!: I appreciate it very much Randy, and "Thank You Very Much" again Randy H...

Sincerely,

Krazy Mikey... :)

Thank you Krazy Mikey I really appreciate your positive comments. You are right if I didn't have to balance helping with the kids at home, training/working, then it would have been alot easier I should have done this when I was single. :lol:

But like I said I always finish what I start, and a Man's Word is a Man's Word. :wink:

So thanks again and I look forward to feedback on these babies.

Randy

Thanks everyone, the last of the Piledrivers went out today. I have NONE left except for 2 boxes of 21 grain .177 bullets.

So once again thank you everyone for your quick payment (some with a tip :) ) and all I ask is those of you who recieved these new bullets please take notes on accuracy and any pics of how they perform hunting will be greatly appreciated. If you like them please call/email the Airgun Stores as I really would like to have a Canadaian supplier of high end bullets for the high end airguns they sell.

I guess I want Premiun for my Vette!!

woohaa, they came today :) Thanks again, Randy! Now I just need to get something I can shoot them with, haahha. I'm gonna try 3-4 in the 631 and the 2240/2250 just for the hell of it, but I know they'll be useless with that power level. I just wanted them for future use.

Let's say you fire a .177 Piledriver at 1060fps along side a .22 Kodiak at the same velocity. Both weigh the same, but the .22 has to push more air out of the way. Which one will be first to 100 yards?
Anyone care to test the BC of the .177's? Do any .177s have enough balls to push 50+fpe?

hehe, yeah. :) I'm gonna shoot off a small handful tomorrow just cuz I have to, haha. But I'll be saving them for later, hopefully it'll be vaguely soon when I can pop for a Condor. Still not sure what I want in .177 though.

I was actually wondering how a 1760 barrel would perform on your 2240/2260 projects. ;)

That's exactly what I was thinking! A medium powered plinker/hunter (50-55fpe) that still packs a bit of punch at 100yds and beyond. Air useage should be lower too, so a smaller tank can be used while still retaining the 100 shot capability I demand from PCPs.
