On the back of the package of the .22 hybrid slugs I have it states that they are available in .177. I think they will be available in the near future.

Probably because there are no market for it, Or the fact that 177 doesn't got the volume of air to really push the slug out. And risk having a pellet not fully leave the barrel. IDK, just my guess.

I tried the H&N Sniper heavy 15grn at out of my 1000 FPS Kral, it shot about 780 -800 FPS, never tired to the 21grns. But they are saying that need a min of 18.5 FPE. So what does that really mean? I know my KRAL sling 7.9 at 18FPE. Does that mean you need something faster?

You start with the ones that will have the widest market and will make the most money.... then branch out into other calibers and weights if and when the market demand is there, providing the product is feasible....

Your KRAL pushed the 15gr. out at 20.53 fpe (@780fps). It is likely it will push a 21gr. .177 bullet out at over 20.53fpe.

Seems to me, most PCP's run higher FPE, the heavier the pellet/bullet they shoot. Same goes with my HW 97 and 98 springers. They also develop more FPE, the heavier the pellet is, however both are
short of that 18.5 by a considerable margin (3 to 4fpe short).

The .177 15.74gr. H&H Rabbit Magnum 11's, load and shoot out of the HW80 high power, but I haven't targeted it yet, nor have I chrono'd it.
They were too large in diameter to fit into the chamber of my HW97, .177 & the 22calibre 27.01gr. Rabbit Magnums were too large to fit into my PP700. Just as well, as they did fit the Gauntlet but
under CO@, the Gauntlet would not discharge them, in fact, barely moved them out of the chamber area.
