Bisley Pest Control

Wed Jul 06, 2016 7:59 pm

Hi, has anyone used Bisley Pest Control pellets on pigeons before? I have been using H&H Barracuda Hunters with good effect, except from the pellet passing straight through the birds head leaving them flapping for a bit, dissected and definitely was a good head shot. Anyway tried the Bisley pellets and they barely made it halfway through the birds head! Is this right? My rifle was just chronographed at 11.4 for so power is good, I am only assuming these are more for knock down and greater energy transfer, but could I still get heart/lung shots should I need to?


Kindest regards


Andrew.

One last thing, I am using a 177 AA TX200HC and shooting at roughly 25yards.

Regards.

aye up Andrew, i've tried bisley pest control in a few different guns, but wasnt happy with the accuracy. to be honest i havent found any of these dedicated hunting pellets that are accurate enough, so i stick with domed, just find the most accurate in YOUR gun and the jobs a good un ;)
i never bother with phrases like, ''stopping power'' ''energy transfer'' etc. because ''accuracy'' overrules them, and ''over penetration'' is not an issue.
a lot of birds will flap when shot in the head, just as chickens will flap, and often run around, even after having their heads chopped off, and you cant really get any more dead than that ;) :lol:

same here with me , shooting rats up to 25 yards they were good but beyond that i would use my TDr's fav JSB 4.53's
You have to find what your gun shoots best with, i have a pcp pistol that loves cheapo spitfires, anything else and it wont group
at all.

I used to use 'Bisley Practice' through my .177/95k, good accuracy and decent stopping power...
