SPEED vs ACCURACY

AIRGUN HUNTING

SPEED vs. ACCURACY : The info here is mainly directed towards springers as PCP rifles give you the option to shoot very heavy pellets in a powerful rifle to maintain long range accuracy.
 

Don't fall for the feet per second hype!!!!

This is probably the reason why most guys buy a piece of crap the first time....

Almost all manufacturers claim over 1000 ft/s for their rifles. What they don't tell you is that the pellets they use for the accuracy tests is not the same they use for the speed tests, and even then the groupings are done at only 7 - 10m.

Most springers that is advertised at over 1200 - 1500 ft/s cannot hit the broad side of a barn, so rather buy an accurate 12 ft/lbs rifle (approximately 800-840ft/s). A pellet, hitting a target at 800 ft/s, is much more usefull than a pellet missing it at a 1100 ft/s.

The guys in the UK have been hunting rabbits and game birds for many years with their sub 12 ft/lbs rifles. Remember... it is all about accuracy.
