Good day chaps,
I am intending to put in for a variation and thought while at it I would put in for an FAC Air rifle for bunnies where rimfire might be too noisy.
I am thinking .25 as I have a .22 sub 12ft/lbs.
Any input would be gratefully received re makes, models, calibres & power.
Cheers
Dave

Anything from Air Arms, Gunpower or Daystate. .22/.25 @ 30+ fpe = game over.

If you want the very best.

Get a Steyr LG110

mine produces a single non ragged hole at 25m and a 1/4 inch group at 50m

if you want a semi auto the hunting 5 is superb

Most decent make air rifles will do a good job in .22 or .25. The issue, if issue it be, is the shot count. I've had a Falcon FN19 running at 25 ft/lb for about 15 or more years now. Accurate enough if I do my part for reliable headshots on bunnies at up to 60 yards, but it will only do about 30 shots reliably before needing a fill. I admit, though, that I would love something with a bloody big tank shooting .25 at about 60 ft/lb.
