Pics of the PDG Bomb & Destroyer
« on: March 13, 2015, 10:35:17 PM »
Here is a picture of the PDG pellets.
 Left to right :Destroyer, Bomb, and Crosman Ultra Magnum.   The top row are straight from the can the second row is from pushing them thru a stock 2240 barrel.


They both have more pointed heads rather than round.   The Bombs drop in past the parrel port so I have little hope in the accuracy of this one.  The Destroyers are tight and they may shoot in a high powered pcp, 950+ fps.  I don't have the shooting space at home and so there's no accuracy testing.

would you happen to have a vernier caliper to measure length would you?

I'll have mine hopefully this week.  Will see how they do in the Disco, Sumatra, and QB.

The Destroyers will load in a MRod magazine but the Bomb is too long.

I was curious on the length to get an idea if they want a  faster twist barrel...

I got my Bombs and Destroyer and the Destroyer's fit fairly snug, the Bombs are nice and snug.  I shot an aerosol can (not under pressure) and the Bombs put a big entry hole in it, and the Destroyer put a almost perfect hole in it.  I will take pics.

Ok the second batch seems to be a better fit than the first.

I like the Destroyer's.  I still need to test out to 50 yards to see how accurate.

I am going to have to pick some up...

I have my MK1322(MK177-13xx Hybrid pumper) up to 21.5 fpe with 14.3 CPHP I think that is just barely enough to toss these out what do you guys think...

I also picked up a Glennfield/Marlin model 60 barrel(micro groove 16 land/groove) that slugs at just a hair under .220 that I will be turning down to 9/16 O.D. to try. I pushed some CPHP(and other) pellets thru and got just the rifling marks I like, light on the head and good on the skirt but not to deep  with no smearing...


How are these  PDG .22 on head/skirt/body(destroyer) size?

I am getting the 21+ fpe with  about .242ci on the valve size and 20 pumps and if I go all out I should be able to get  about  a .35ci with a valve extension which will hopefully get me closer to about 25-28 fpe on 25-30 pumps. I am pretty sure that is enough to get these  to 650-700 fps...

I hope to do some 50 yard testing tomorrow, but at 18 yards they show real promise out of the Disco, now I need to try them in the Sumatra.

Looking good Joe.  I tried some at 10 yards going 900 fps, fooling around and the group wasn't the best.  I think they were pushed too fast.  Need to try to shoot something else slower than my .22 Condor SS!

K.O. about 700 fps should be good to go.
