REAL Flechettes

Unread postAuthor: sagthegreat » Sun Jan 26, 2014 9:06 pm

So I got real flechettes on ebay. They shoot great out of my .177 bore airgun, and the nice thing is they have the best penetration compared to any ammo. The only downside is that you need to be at least 15 ft away so the fins properly stabalize the dart. From 30 feet at 150 psi I was able to shoot through 200 pages of a textbook

To me it looks like a little nail with a flattened rear. This could be easily repeated or scaled up by taking any nail and putting a torch to the back of it then hitting it with a hammer... Of course at such a low price for the smaller caliber its probably worth it just to buy them.

Oh, to me it looked like they only had 2. The video is unclear and the ebay pic isn't very good either.
