FX Hybrid 5.5mm 22 grain slugs are a hybrid form between a conventional pellet and a slug.
Pellets with a diabolo shape adapt perfectly to the pulls and fields of a barrel and have a small contact surface, which means little friction. However, due to their shape, they have a low ballistic coefficient, which means that they lose speed quickly and are sensitive to wind.
Slugs, on the other hand, have a much higher ballistic coefficient, which allows them to maintain their speed better. The large own weight and large contact surface (extra friction) do ensure that a lot of extra force is needed to be able to shoot slugs.
The FX Hybrid 5.5mm 22 grain slugs have the external dimensions of a high ballistic coefficient slug, but are completely hollow and have a hollowed out base, making them lightweight. Their shape gives them a contact surface with the optimum balance between friction and sealing.
This combination of properties ensures that the FX Hybrid slugs have a flatter trajectory than conventional pellets and that they are less sensitive to wind. Thanks to a greater conservation of energy, they are very suitable for long distances and the hollow point gives an enormous expansion.
The other advantage of these FX Hybrid 5.5 mm 22 grain slugs is the fact that they are suitable for any compressed air rifle and not just the extremely powerful ones or those equipped with a special slug liner.
