Airgun World - - Si And Davy: 25 On Rats -

Over the past few years I’ve read many ar­ti­cles about whether or not a sub-12 ft.lb., .25 cal­i­bre ri­fle is any good for hunt­ing. Some vote for it and re­ally rate it, whilst oth­ers vote against it, stat­ing that the slower .25 pel­let takes too long to reach its tar­get, giv­ing it time to re­act to the sound of a muz­zle re­port. About eight months ago, I bought my own .25 cal­i­bre Sandwell Field Sports Snipe - a cus­tom-tuned Weihrauch HW99S with a .25 bar­rel and spe­cial Weihrauch .25 si­lencer fit­ted.
