I'm not the least concerned about them. The gun shoots quite well, regardless.
It is bloody difficult to shoot groups with a powder burning pistol or revolver that
match what this PCP air pistol can do.
My M29 is the only one I have, that can make sub 1" groups at 20 yards. The .357 and .38SPL are
close, but no cigar.

Difference is, airgun have zero recoil. You take recoil, and the anticipation of recoil out of the equation, and I'm sure powder burners pistols would be just as accurate. You are comparing apple to oranges.

I can sit in my basement with my laser trainer cartage in my 9mm SP01 and make 1 ragged hole group at 25ft with my left hand, with a program on my phone. Goto the range with 9mm, and looking at 2" maybe 3" ish at 20m. Different results.

\Got some Hades pellets from Wes & these are the first sighted in targets shot with them
in the PP700 S-A, at 10 meters - yes, from a rest using the red dot sight. We didn't chronograph
them but that would be interesting. It seems to like them (15.89gr.) about like the 21.3gr. H&N'S.
So- if any of you were thinking of trying them, I would.

I picked up some Hades also.Good to see the testing on them.My PP700SA really dispatches gophers,most effective using Ultra Shock.Curious are you using the Hades for pesting ?

I would not expect much difference between the Hades and a normal RN due to the low vel.
It is illegal in BC to use a handgun, ANY handgun for hunting - anything, as far as I know, so,
no, no pesting with a handgun, however, if it was legal I'd likely use the Predator Pellets. They
also shoot amazingly well in mine. They also cut perfect holes in the standard target paper.
