I've heard of the GAMO 1250 which supposedly shoots .177 pellets at 1250 fps.

Anybody know of any other air rifle with a higher muzzle velocity?

Just buy a .22lr and be done with it.

That would be make way to much sense.

Because I already have a .22 lr.

I was asking partly out of curiosity.

I have a pos chinese side cocker that is supposed to be 1200 fps in .177. I believe it because it is the only pellet gun I have owned that will knock a squirrel right out of a tree with one shot to the chest. And a satisfying whap! to boot. I don't have it with me right now, and I don't remember the name, but it only cost me $75.00 new and is hell for accurate.

Been thinking of getting one of those 9mm for the hell of it.

RWS 54 in .22, plenty of power for squirrel plinking at 900FPS

Those cheap China ones work good. You got them stray dogs too?

how many grains for the .22 pellet at 900 fps?

I grew up with dogs. Before I had brothers, as young as 5, I ran around in the woods with them. Kinda like family. Anyone who would shoot a dog with a pellet gun is an ass. Either kill them or don't.
Not funny.

I think they are in the area of 24 grains depending on the pellet type. Beeman makes some powerful air rifles.

Not sure but I would say 9mm, but yeah buy a .22. Then you dont have to pump it every time you shoot.

When I was a kid, instead of pumping my Crossman 10-times, I would pump it for about a half hour per shot. I swear you could take down satelites with it!
