I think that’s marginal, except with head shots.

I shot a pigeon last week with my HW30s, and it was just enough power for a proper chest shot. (7.3 gr. @ ~650 fps)

You’ll kick yourself if you wound one, when a bigger could would have done the job.

If you decide to go ahead anyway, you might want to try pointed pellets. They sometimes shoot accurately in low powered guns, and maximize penetration.
