Metal Penetration TEST of Different types of pellets

Post by baggafx » Sun Jan 09, 2022 11:05 pm

Hi everyone i m gagan

Today i m testing 7 Different types of pellets for penetration TEST.. for penetration today i m using steel dinner plate
Air gun is Percihole NX200 And the pellets are

Jsb exact
H&N excite Hammer
Rws basic
Gamo pro hunter
Jsb metalmag
RWS Hypermax
Gamo Lethal

For the setup i set 4 plates in a row with gap of 2 inch

AND the test results are

1 Jsb exact penetrate only 1 plate not dented 2nd one
2 H&n hammer , Rws basic and gamo pro hunter all penetrate only 1 plate dented 2nd one . gamo hunter dent was deep on 2nd
3 Jsb Metalmag and Rws Hypermax penetrated 2 plates.... dented 3rd one
4 Gamo lethal penetrated 3 plates no dent on 4th

so the winner is Gamo Lethal 3 plates thats is very powerful in penetration in metals..

Remember its only metal penetration test...a pellet with highest penetration in metal does not mean it will also penetrate highest
in other methods like ballastic gel , soap or in animal..

if like my work then please comment or reply...if u want me to do another penetration test with other methods ask me

You are doing good work, baggafx, and thank you for providing this information!

Each discovers each old thing and they throw up their hands and say ‘See! Look what I have found! Look upon what I know!’ And each believes it is something new."

Hi Gagan,

Nice review based on penetration. Yes surely you use different mediums for the next tests. Like through plastic water Mugs, books , wrapped up denim cloth roll.

Good initiative Baggafx. Thanks for this information.

Just to inform you, few years back I have tested JSB Rabbit magnum II on a Bandicoot which was hiding behind a 1/2 inch Ply. Irritated with its activity I fired a shot with Aarmar hurricane .22 and surprisingly that pellet crossed that Plywood though that creature was already gone.

What is the reason for all of it?
Are you hunting beer cans or something of this kind? In my opinion the most important things are the impact group in long distance and the expansion of pallets (if we hunt). What is the sense in making holes in junk?
" for penetration today i m using light steel plates" - next time try to use some made of lead.
