Can You Make Armor Piercing Airgun Pellets? Let’s Find Out

Are armor piercing airgun pellets even possible to make?

YouTuber Gen Scinmore tries to make some armor piercing pellets.

Learn if these homemade airgun pellets are indeed armor piercing.

Can you make armor piercing airgun pellets right at home? Well the tip of a cut off nail is glued into a backwards wadcutter pellet. That is all it takes to make one.

How do they actually shoot? In testing these homemade armor piercing pellets the shooter finds out the accuracy is less than ideal. Penetration was indeed good against a piece of metal. The nail tip pushed back into the hollow skirt of the backwards pellet allowing the hit on an apple to really expand and cause some good expansion. This caused damage similar to a good hollowpoint pellet.

Were these homemade armor piercing pellets worth the time to make? In reality, probably not but they sure were interesting to watch for testing.
