“Alan”As for the longer shot…. I shoot a WARized .25 caliber Marauder. At about 45 FPE, anything much over 100 yards is a bit of a stretch, and not humane in my opinion.

Targets tend to stay put. Game tends to move. 
Not only that, if you hurt the animal at that range, try making good a follow-up shot to finish the job. Especially with birds, I’m told they do something called flying. Go figure… In my opinion, if you hunt, in particular with an air rifle, follow the advice of Gijs. If you’re not 100% confident you can make a clean humane kill, don’t pull that trigger. I’ve seen so many hunting vids come by where the animal suffers for minutes sometimes, it makes my stomach turn. And no, I’m not against hunting or anything. But if you do it, do it humane, and don’t overstretch it by trying to test the limits of your rifle at the expense of the animal.
