Just ordered some .25 cal. bullets from Wes.
It'll be interesting to try them in the Artemis M11 and the Condor.

Yeah! Thanks for the order, and looking forward to your results 8)
You might want to crank up the velocity on the M11 to get the most stability out of the slugs from what people are saying about how slugs work compared to pellets.

Another cool option with the M11 is taking out the regulator and putting the higher power spring in (I've got some here). I tried it and the max power level went way up.

Interesting, Wes. The bullets are quite a bit lighter than I expected.
With the heavier spring, what's the shot count like. I was getting about
44 good shots, stock. I don't know what the velocity was, but "sounded"
like it was in the 750 to 800fps range with the 33gr. pellets. The bullets are
lighter, IIRC.
Guess I should have ordered a spring as well. Even if the shot count dropped
to 20 shots, that would be OK.

If I remember correctly it was just over 1000 fps with 33 gr JSB heavies, but I'll have to look for confirmation on that. I think it was giving two mags worth of good shots. I need to find where I recorded my results, so don't hold me to my numbers. 8)

Do you remember what the stock .25 was giving for speeds?
1000fps with 33gr. is 73 fpe. Not bad for a pellet & fast enough
to be fairly flat shooting.
The bullets, with higher BC will be quite interesting indeed.

Tallieho1 - thanks for that. I've tightened up the screws, barrel band and stock screw. 875fps with the 33gr. isn't too bad, if it
still gets 45 shots as mine does now with the 33gr. JSB pellet. 56fpe - not bad at all.
Where to get that "extra" barrel band, please?
I'm looking forward to getting outside with mine on the RF range. Still under house arrest until Friday.

The 33.5's arrived and look just great. I might try them bare as well as
moly coated, once this quarantine if over and it warms up a bit.

Hey Daryl, how did the slug testing go? Im curious to know if your bolt had difficulties pushing the slug thru into the breech. I ordered the 36.2 hollow point slugs and when i push it thru with the bolt probe it puts up a little bit of resistance. Hard enough to make you worry about snapping that screw that helps cocks the action into the trigger sear. Did the coated slugs load much smoother than non coated? Thanks in advance!
