American Air Arms
The Slayer is the most advanced air rifle on the market today offering light weight, durability and high craftsmanship in a super accurate package. Ammo recommended for the 308 rifle:
99 grain swage HP has unreal accuracy and a HUGE hollow point to open up on game.
357 Slayer ( make sure to order .358 for Slayer )
Same as the 308 but in a larger more powerful package. Ammo recommended for the 357 (.358) rifle:
120 grain swage HP is just incredible in the Slayer. No bullet can match it and is a hollow point made with super accurate swage press.
140 grain swage HP is also very very accurate but will shoot a bit slower.
105 grain swage HP is a light weight super fast bullet for the Slayer.
95 grain swage HP is a super light weight bullet for the Slayer.
Evol - no slugs available at this time we recommend
Texan 45 - Select .457 size
290 grain HP is the most accurate bullet for 45 Texan
279 grain HP is very close to 290 grain and is very accurate
372 grain cast is accurate but shoots slow, Major FPE!
265 grain HP is accurate but not as accurate as 290 and 279
168 grain EPP is a great plinking round out 100 yards
196 grain HP is a super light HP with good reports - better for close range shooting
180 grain spire point sized .356 is the slug that shoots good in this gun at this time
Do not recommend any slug for this gun at this time
Condor / Talon .25
39 grain HP swage slug is accurate any weight heavier depending on the power of your gun. Some people like the 34.7 grain slug but I find the little heavier are more accurate - every gun is different as are the shooters.
Dragon Claw 50 Caliber
Light Hunter 909 45 caliber
Recluse 35 Caliber
.22 Caliber - we tried slugs with no success, .223 was best of what we tried
