Hello all

I have 2 x 22lr rifle (Remington 597 semi-auto and Savage MKII bolt action) – I don't hunt, only target shoot in an outdoor range. Mainly 25 yards, and 50 yards once in a while

It's fun, but was wondering if I could find an air rifle that can be SUPER accurate for both distance (or at least 25 yards)

I don't know about the caliber (0.177 vs 0.22)? I've heard 0.177 is flatter, I know it's cheaper (can shoot a lot without worrying about cost of ammo), but what about some wind in an outdoor range? (I've chatted with somebody from PyramdAir, and he recommended .22 !)

And finally, what about a rifle in the $150 / $200 price range? Don't think I want PCP though….

Thanks

 

 Can't be done, a "SUPER accurate" target shooter for $150.00 to $200.00. If you spend much time at the range you will see several .22 lr target guns north of $5000.00. Air guns are no different, if you require SUPER accurate you need to up the budget a bit.
