Default Off topic in some parts - ML in the end

The other day I was just dinging around and actually conversing with a guy at Lehigh - he asked me if I would like to try a new bullet they were building for Umarex. What's Umarex I asked? it is a pellet gun! Well my interest kinda dropped in a hurry - pellet gun! What am I going to do with a .17 pellet! Then he says it is a .510x238CF sabotless copper bullet! WHAT!!! Anyway I was a bit worried about the size .510 going down a ML bore, but that turns out to be OK also.

So I looked up the 'Pellet Gun' online - it does exist and it is 50 cal. And it is used for hunting - who would know.




The sample bullets arrived yesterday. So I did some checking this morning - I think they will work



The drive barbs are .510 and the top band around the bullet is .502 - so they might actually work

I have a little concern about trying them in my .501 bores but in the .502 Wolverine and the .504 White - they shouldn't be a problem.



So hopefully I will get out to the farm and run a few through the Wolverine - They might really be good ML deer bullets???

Bronc - I am really hoping to find out tomorrow. The powder cup is very thin and designed to expand with some where around 3000 psi from the Pellet Gun - the pressure from a ML shot will have no problem pushing the cup up tight on the bore.

I sent a guy some 408 gr paper patched bullets to shoot out of his 45 cal air rifle.
Then he got arrested for DUI and I haven't heard if he ever shot them.
