ZAN PROJECTILES HP SLUGS .177 16GR 350PCS

Get extreme precision and expansion with ZAN Projectiles HP Slugs .177 16gr 350PCS. High quality slugs featuring a silky body and deep hollow point for huge expansion at both high and low velocities, even below 700fps! Created for high power air guns after many hundreds of hours of development to suit most .177 barrels on the market. They deliver extreme accuracy, consistency and also rapid expansion, making them both versatile and effective.

These precision swaged air rifle slugs from Slovenia in Europe are made from a special soft lead mixture. Therefore, the slugs have a huge expanding capacity when it hits the target, even with low velocities and at longer distances. This low friction mixture will result in higher velocities with less air, compared to other slugs. Combined with great accuracy, these slugs are excellent for pesting, hunting and target shooting.

ZAN slugs tend to work very well in all barrels, even in standard pellet liners. These air rifle slugs are solid, without the flexible skirt of diabolo airgun pellets. Featuring a large hollow point tip design (or open tip, as sometimes referred to) and a flat base, you get both rapid expansion and devastating impact. Additionally, shooters can rely on ZAN Projectiles for absolute accuracy and consistency, regardless of their shooting discipline.

 

Accuracy

There are loads of Youtube videos where shooters get great results with ZAN Slugs in .177, shooting them in break-barrels, sub 12 ft.lb rifles and also powerful high-end PCP airguns. This quick 75 yard (68.6 meter) accuracy test and 55 yard (50.3 meter) fun shoot video is a good indication of the slugs’ performance!

SLUGS

There’s no doubt that airgun slugs are a hot topic right now. Compared to traditional diabolo (waisted) airgun pellets, airgun slugs offer improved accuracy at long ranges. They also deliver greater downrange impact due to a higher Ballistic Coefficient. The trajectory is flatter and they’re less affected by crosswinds, too.

Traditional airgun pellets have a distinct head, waist and skirt. Airgun slugs are different because they have no waist. In fact, they have quite a similar shape to the bullets fired in cartridge firearms. Slugs are longer than diabolo pellets and they are heavier.

The airgun’s magazine has to be capable of accepting the projectile. Although they can be fired in conventional airguns, they work best in barrels which have been specially developed for slug use. The barrel requires a much faster twist rate than is usable for pellets.

Because the ballistics of slugs are so different from diabolo pellets, groups shot at longer distances can be smaller than those at closer distances. This is because the slug gains stabilization as it flies through the air. Typically, slugs perform well in all calibres. Slug guns need to produce a higher Muzzle Energy, so they’re often only effectively used in powerful PCP air rifles.

Typically, tests show Ballistic Coefficients from 0.48 for 10 grain .177 calibre slugs. This compares to a typical 0.024 for diabolo pellets like H&N Baracuda Match in the same calibre. That’s a HUGE difference! This makes slugs ideal for hunting and long range target shooting. They could also be ideal for shooting reactive targets at variable distances.
