Too much power

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

I was very in­ter­ested in your ar­ti­cle about hav­ing too much power in an FAC air­gun. I’ve won­dered the same thing my­self over the years, dur­ing which time I’ve owned 10 dif­fer­ent FAC ri­fles, some pro­duc­ing over 80ft.lbs. Like you, I found the very high­power ones dif­fi­cult to shoot from any­thing but per­fect con­di­tions, so now I use less power, but do bet­ter with it. I have a .22 Daystate Mk4 at 32 ft.lbs. which I find ex­tremely ac­cu­rate and easy to hit with. Paul Smith

Hello Paul, It seems we’ve reached the same con­clu­sion through our in­di­vid­ual ex­pe­ri­ences, and I’ve spo­ken to many other high-power air­gun­ners from around the world who have the same ex­pe­ri­ence. I think a .22 Air Arms Field Di­ablo at 900fps is about the op­ti­mum and per­haps the ul­ti­mate air­gun set-up, and it’s what I shoot to­day. Ed.

Is there an ideal set of bal­lis­tics for high- power air­guns?
