Kayaker, Sorry for the delayed response. We shoot air rifle silhouette: chickens at 60 yards, pigs at 75, turkeys at 90, and rams at 100. All of these critters are very small for distances engaged. I have shot ten in a row on chickens more than once, and ten in a row on pigs once. High score for me is 31/40 (which was high enough to win that particular match). The lack of success indicated on turkeys and rams is a direct result of wind issues. Note however, that I consistently score higher on rams at 100 yards than on turkeys at 90, typically 6-8/10 (Hate those narrow turkeys.) When practicing at home, under good conditions, 100 yard targets are not a problem.

The heavy .22 caliber guns (25 grain) may get popular as time goes on. However, right now, I think the .25 caliber shooting 33.9 grain JSB's is hard to beat. Hope this info helps.
