How to make: Superior Armor Piercing Pellets 2


Armor piercing pellets

Just a few different ideas of .22 caliber armor piercing pellets

.22 Ammo for the Apocalypse - Hybrid Pellet/Nail Gun Blank rounds

Once again we take a look at launching pellets using powder actuation tool loads, or nail gun blanks. This time I'll address some ideas and suggestions viewers have brought up, like gluing the pellet to the blank to speed things up.

PELLET SEATING - boost performance of .177 & .22 air rifles?

Will pellet seating boost the power of your airgun, or make your air gun more accurate? With a Beeman PellSeat tool and a DIY pellet seater made from a nut, bolt and BB, Nigel Allen undertakes hours of testing with four brands of pellet – each in .177 and .22 – and two break-barrel springer rifles in an attempt to see if a pellet seater is better for inserting your ammo into the breech than… well, a thumb!

Diabolo pellets tested are: Webley AccuPell, RWS Hobby, Rangemaster Kaiser and Webley VMX – each in .177 and .22.

Power readings are taken via a Combro Cb-625 speed meter to assess muzzle energy with and without the pellets seated, and accuracy is checked at 25 yards with seated pellets and those pressed in by just a thumb!

The rifles used are a .22 calibre Webley VMX OS Quantum and .177 Feinwerkbau 124 Sport. It’s a lot of shooting… and as the results start to unfold throughout this short film, they may even raise a few eyebrows.

If you’ve experimented with pellet seating, post a comment to let AirgunTV viewers know your findings. I might try this slick pellet seating tool, in the future, which I’ve found for sale on Amazon (associate links):

Shooting .22 PELLETS Using NAIL GUN Blanks

It is not recommended you try this yourself. But if you still insist, please read the precautions below.
We load up some .22 firearms with Crosman .22 pellets and drive them using powder activated tool rounds. (calling them guns would cause the masses to soil themselves in horror) These are used to drive nails into concrete or even steel. The lead Crosman pellets are about 14 gr. and fit nicely down the barrel of a .22 rifle or pistol. Snug enough to engage the rifling. This is really a hybrid round using 3 normally incompatible components.
This is just a demonstration on how well this hinkey and potentially dangerous combination works. Although it worked VERY well for us --- your results may vary.

I do not want to green-light this idea to you. However, my telling you NOT to try it never stopped anyone from trying something. You need to understand the dangers if you do decide to try it. You are on your own if something bad happens. Don't come back and post how your gun blew up and you lost some fingers.
+++ I believe it is important the pellets are seated IN the barrel rather than the chamber. This is because when the round is fired, the pellet probably will not enter the barrel from the larger chamber smoothly and will likely NOT enter the barrel at all, resulting in a barrel-obstruction. If this happens in a non-blowback style gun, the gun is likely to blow up. +++

CHRONO TEST! Check out this video!

The powder charges were MUCH louder than using standard .22 ammo. If you have a chrono and wish to attempt this, I think we'd all like to know how fast these are capable of going. I'll put a link to your video in this one.

ive seen a few videos about these pellets, they were easy to make so i thought i would test them, the results would be different for different air rifles, but with a weak rifle you can see the best results

Homemade Super Penetration .22 Airgun Pellets - Crosman Piranha Armor Piercing Pellets

I created these super hard-hitting .22 Cal. pellets from a Copperhead .177 Cal. BB glued (2 part epoxy) into the Hollow Point of .22 cal. Crosman Piranha pellets. The 14.3 grain Piranha pellet PLUS the BB made a super heavy sabot round that went right through cans at 10 meters with a Crosman 1322 Air Pistol as the weapon of choice today, watch out armor-clad vermin! Any squirrels out there that choose to armor themselves with steel cans watch out! The pellets went right through a full steel can of stewed whole tomatoes weighing over 2.5 pounds (1Kg) and made mincemeat of full aluminum soda cans.

The Magic of Armor Piercing Rounds

In this video I discuss the perk Armor Piercing Rounds and talk about its effect,
especially on the sniper.

Effects on every other weapon: You can shoot through infinite enemy/ally models
I find this perk useless when compared to other perks in this slot

Effects on sniper: Shoot through infinite objects of infinite thickness
- you literally shoot through everything, with a few exceptions.
It's insane fun

Exceptions are energy-field-like barriers and walls with certain textures
and/or angles.

There are certain textures which behave really wonky and ricochet the
bullet in an usual way. This may have to do with angles.
Because of this inconsistency and rarity I don't include
this matter in this video. I advise to ignore this problem
and to just go for the shot.

Angles are somewhat more consistent and can be circumvented by shooting from
an angle greater than 30°.

There are only a few uses in PvE. Shooting through mob spawns does not prove to be very useful.
Pulling the wizard in crota's end seems to be most useful thing to do apart from killing wizards behind cover.
Shooting the swordbearer when he tries to hide behind the rocks
could also be very usefull to deliver that final blow.

One big difference in PvE is that there is no abundace of special ammo. In PvP however you seldom
run out of special ammo.

When you start to use this in PvP i advise you to just try to predict someone's location behind cover.
While playing control you may know where to shoot at and get a feeling with enough practice.

Trial and error until you git gud at it.
You need to keep track of your ammo and constantly refresh it.
I often find myself blowing several clips into a wall and I don't always get the kill.

As you can see in this video this synergises with the Thorn Handcannon. The Dot tells you
the position of your enemy. If you're a Thorn user anyway I recommend you to use this

I find this perk extremely powerful in pvp and I absolutely love it. It's insanely fun to use
