Well colour me impressed, I've been sizing and playing arround with the .22 BBT bullets for a few months now .Mostly been shooting them from a BT65 at 60 FPE at ranges fro 25 to 70 yards with pretty good results although not perfect. Today for sh/@! and giggles I loaded one up in my Benji steroid 392 ,pumped up to 15 and let it fly through the chrony . 610 fps . Repeated the process and found the ES to be less than 20 fps for 10 shots . Next was accuracy , only having the length of my garage as a range 30 feet , I let another ten shots fly . One big hole . Going to try these at distance tonight at a friends place. I bought the 392 used not too long ago to use as a truck gun , looks like the plan is coming together. :D

31 gr. FN, or the HP version at 610 fps?.... If it's the solids, nearly 26 FPE from a Benji pumper is impressive.... Pumpers, like PCPs, do prefer heavy pellets.... 8)

They are solids , I thought the chrony was acting up at first . They weigh 29 grains on my scale . I'm really happy with the results .

Shouldn't you be looking at something a bit more hefty for shooting trucks? :shock: :P

I bought the bigger of the two molds available at NOE and I believe they drop at .2218" . They are shooting well from a 24" 22xx barrel also again at just over 600 fps.

Here's a quick pic. Nothing special , it was painted with truck bed liner , I just did a trigger job on it and it's somewhat better. Also added a small piece of fibre optic to the front sight . Helps with my poor vision .
