Welcome to New England Airgun
Interested in a lead-free (
) .22 cal wadcutter pellet for your air rifle or pistol?
We need to hear from you if we are going to be successful in getting the manufacturer to make lead-free wadcutter pellets for .22 caliber airguns.
The EPA is working to remove lead from environment for good reason, it's a poison! we can't hunt waterfowl with lead-shot anymore, we can't use lead sinkers or fishing lures anymore, lead has been removed from paint and gasoline, even your electronics are assembled with lead-free solder!
Flint Michigan anyone?
lead has been used for decades to hold copper pipes together in your home, now it's a
Tin-Silver based solder.
In 2013 the state of california passed legislation to eliminate lead bullets and shot by 2019.
that is next year! The whole state of California should be in the market for lead-free .22 cal wadcutters. New England will be Next.
Wadcutter pellets have 2 purposes, Target shooting and Hunting.
In target shooting they can't be beat for the accuracy and clean holes made for scoring. Where we spend most of our time practicing and playing shooting games I believe wadcutters should the a #1 choice for the bulk of all our shooting needs. They use wadcutters for Olympic Competition!
For hunting ammo, they are used for more humane/closer range hunting, they transfer maximum energy into the animal hunted while limiting penetration and punching out a hole that won't seal like what can happen with a domed pellet.
Domed pellets offer better distance and pass-through penetration but at the risk of inflicting an inhumane injury to the animal.
Domed pellets with a hollow point work like a wadcutter but the shot needs to be closer to get the impact that spreads the pellet material.
Wadcutters maximize the impact area and work like a hole punch, removing material in a .22 diameter circle that doesn't close up.
Send us an email and we will send you a sample of the .22 wadcutter when we have it made.
