Hunting help.

12 posts in this topic

Well, I looked through a few posts, and saw it was generally airsoft skirmishes etc...

But I was wondering something about the capability of hunting rifles etc.

I have a crosman 2250b Ratcatcher .22 special (more like the ratsplatter..) and was wondering if it can cope with the H&N Baracuda .22 pellets?

If anyone knows anything about it, I would really appreciate a reply...

Thanks,

Aleks (TheAirsoftNoob) :lol:

pcp rifles , are good , no recoil, whisper quite and very accurate as there is little to no recoil..but you rely on a air source , pump or divers bottle ...

 

spring rifles ... almost always full power 12ft pnds ..get a good one and it will last you for years and years , no dependance on a outside power source, but you do get the recoil.. but many say its more of a skill to master learning to shoot with it.

 

then co2 rifles , ratcatchers etc .. less power , usualy around 10 ft pnds not good for small game ..

only realy good for small vermin ... not many shots with co2 canister ..

i think you'll find the pneumatic rifles fire the same 12 pounds per square inch until empty and can fire 200-300 shots per 'pump' as it were, spring rifles do rely on ' Out side power source' ... its just your arm :P, as for skill the same priciples are required in either rifle you use whether it be an airsoft gun or airgun spring or pneumatic having said this, agreed a lot less to go wrong with spring gun

i didnt say pcp rifles were not full power , i said co2 rifles wernt and i would love to no what pcp rifle fires 200-300 shots per pump ... i was a keen air gunner for many years .. and i have never come across a pcp that shoots more than 150 on a fill and thats good... and there is no recoil to deal with in a pcp so alot less skill required to shoot , i have a pcp and a spring , i love the pcp as it is easyer but the spring rifle hunting is just much more traditional , i would reccomend a good pcp to any one , but there so expensive for a good one , then the divers bottle is another 200 quid , and for 200 quid you can get a okay spring gun :P
