The New Predator Polymag Shorts!

Predator Polymag pellets are very popular with the airgun hunting crowd. However, the issue of length was a problem for those of us who shoot modern airguns with magazines. The “traditional” Predator Polymag pellets would not fit in most airgun magazines, without having to clip off the tip of the pellet. This did not affect performance, but I’m sure somewhere in the back of the airgunner’s psyche, it was nagging at us if we happened to miss the gimme shot on a squirrel, or other quarry.  We reported from the 2014 SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor, Trade Show), where the fine folks from Predator International told that they were working on a Polymag “Short”. We are happy to announce that Predator Polymag Shorts are now available!

We did some comparisons and came up with the differences between the traditional Predator Polymags and the new Predator Polymag Shorts. This only applies to size differences and not to performance, either at the shooting bench, or in the field on game.

As you can see by the comparison, the new Polymag Shorts are almost the same weight, but are just 0.06″ shorter in length, all of it from the body of the pellet (see measurement images below).

We tested these pellets in a Daystate Huntsman XL magazine and a Benjamin Woods Walker magazine (P-Rod) and both fit perfectly and the magazine functioned as designed.  Our next step will be to take these to the range for some accuracy testing, as well as use them in an upcoming hunt up in NE California for Belding’s Ground Squirrel hunting.  If they perform any where near as well as the “Traditional” Polymags, we believe these will be a great addition for folks who hunt for small game and varmints with their airguns.  These pellets can be purchased at Pyramyd Air
