Today I’m doing a big ammunition test for you with my Diana XR200. I want to find out which lead pellets, lead-free pellets and slugs work particularly well for Diana’s new pneumatic air rifle.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: “Every rifle and every barrel is different”. So, you have to find out which pellets are best to use for your pneumatic air rifle.
There are more than 20 types of pellets in the test. Some performed very well, others not at all. It’s like with most rifles: you have to figure out which pellets suit Diana best.
ZAN Slugs in Germany!
Once again I present you a new highlight on the German market!
The air rifle fans among you who also watch international YouTube channels have surely heard about ZAN Slugs. It is a Slovenian manufacturer that has gained a lot of international attention in the last year. I have been in contact with Zan Sude, the owner of ZAN Slugs, almost exactly a year ago. We talked a bit back then and he sent me a couple of sample packs of his slugs.
I tested these in various rifles throughout the year, and was absolutely taken with the quality and consistency, as well as the build quality.
Now, one year later, we have talked again and decided together that we will offer ZAN Slugs on the German market.
I’m always looking for unusual and cool equipment for your guns, pistols, and air rifles.
Surely you have seen a special unit in some action movie, aiming at targets with a gun while looking through a red dot. This red dot often has a magnifier placed in front of it, which can be flipped in front of the red dot sight, if necessary, to quickly aim at targets at a greater distance. I always thought that was really cool.
So, I decided to get this combination and test it. I had the choice between different sets. Since I like higher magnifications, I chose the set of ROMEO4H + JULIET4 from the American brand Sig Sauer.
Everyone who knows me, knows exactly that I need constant change in the shooting sport, that I’m always looking for even better products and that my shooting range has constantly undergone change and improvement over the last few years.
When I was allowed to shoot air rifles with more than 7.5J on the shooting range, the demands on the targets obviously changed. Most of the targets you can buy in various stores are rated at a maximum of 7.5 joules. One shot with 30 or 40 joules and the target is broken.
So, I have sent my request to Frank from Mamba Target.
Diana XR200 is finally here!
We had to wait a long time for the gap, left by Diana P1000 Evo2, to be filled again. The high-quality pneumatic air rifle from Diana was sold for the last time in early / mid 2021. Since then, we have been waiting for a pneumatic air rifle “Made in Germany” from Diana for a long time. Dozens of times I was asked if I already knew when the successor would finally be available.
However, the fact that Diana XR200 isn’t the direct successor to Diana P1000 Evo2 is already evident from its looks and all the data that is already available. XR200 is a completely new concept that I would like to introduce to you today.
