Reply To: 200 ft# regulated PCP
Although I grew up in the hunting culture and was a gunner’s mate in the Navy, I must admit that I need to bone up on the ballistic science of the sub-sonic atmosphere of airguns. Perhaps I am missing something in the propriety of stabilizing bullet flight at sub-sonic speeds. If that is, in fact, a physics issue; I still don’t see the nonfeasibility of pushing, say a 40 or 50 grain bullet at 1,300 or 1,500fps to generate 200ft# or so (commensurate with a .22 LR Hi-Vel). And even though at those velocities we’re now dealing with sonic boom; since we’re dealing with non-firearm weapons, legal noise moderation without special permit should not be an issue. At any rate, I am excited about the rapid rate of innovation in the airgunning industry.
I am interested in learning more about your Bulldog kits (full performance specs). I was a huge fan of the Bulldog until I saw it was not regulated.
