Hi all, I have just used my home made 179 grain hollow point slugs at 30 yards, they flew dead straight but with a very curved trajectory due to my use of only 500 psi. They still hit with some force though had to dig them out of the log with my sheath knife they went in about 3/4 inch just need to practice more to get some tight groups

As big as those are you could see them in flight! I have seen bullets from a .45 auto at 750 fps.
