Reply To: Hunting with a springer/gas ram rifle
My primary hunting airgun is my R1k in .177, tuned to shoot at 12-13fpe. I enjoy the challenge and simplicity of hunting with a springer. The technology may be 60+ years old, but the R1k can still get the job done with authority.
There are few things I enjoy more than hunting with my sons. We’ll easily walk 4-6 miles across the desert in pursuit of jackrabbits.
I’m pretty confident taking shots inside of 40 yards and a well placed shot can drop a big jack easily. No need for more power.
