Inferno air rifle slugs are hand-swaged. The same method used for bullets manufactured for center rifle shooters competing at the highest levels. Bullet swaging is a method of using very high pressure (approaching 80,000 PSI) at room temperature to force a lead core into a copper jacket to form a bullet. Our slugs are manufactured using the same process, but as slugs do not consist of a copper jacket the lead core is swaged directly into precision, diamond lapped dies. Unlike casting, no heat or molten lead is used. The high pressure is applied with special, powerful presses; each designed to hold a precision, diamond-lapped die.
Inferno precision swaged slugs almost always have better concentricity than cast or mass-produced slugs, they have an extremely high degree of uniformity and density, and the process allows for very excellent repeatability. Being able to make the same slug time after time is very important and swaging excels at this. The end result is the most accurate slug possible.
Our slugs are exact caliber diameter, measured up to 5 digits after the comma, i.e. 0.21700″ diameter at the bearing surface. By using precision equipment we ensure that weights are very consistent, less than 0.1 grain variance of the intended weight. There is absolutely no reason to weigh and handpick these slugs in batches for competition use, as is the case with the top brands of pellets and casted, or mass manufactured slugs.
