Also, don’t dismiss out of hand a Diana 56TH or 54 in .177.
Look at the velocity and energy data for the 54 at straightshooters.com.
It shoots the heavier pellets well, and not even just the ridiculous Rabbit Magnums, Eun Jins and such. Exact Heavy, CPH, Kodiak, etc. It shoots them hard, flat and accurate; but still nowhere near supersonic.
.22 might still be more compelling if you would rather have 1-2 extra FPE at 50+ yards in exchange for the flatter trajectory.
