    “Tn_airgunner”I can’t find a bsa r-10 mrk2 under 1,099. Im interested in a .25 cal gun but if a .22 will be as accurate at 100 yard then I’d get one

    
If you are going to spend that much you should look at a Daystate Regal.  If you wnat a .25 AOA has them on sail for 1295.00.  I have one in .22 and just love it.

    The sale prices for BSA’s on Amazon are constantly changing. I think it was only a week or two ago that they were going for $758 with free shipping. You’d have to keep checking back every day. BSA doesn’t make an R-10 in .25 yet. They used to make a gun in .25 called the Lonestar and since they’ve stopped making it, it has become a pretty hard gun to find used and you still see them winning competitions on the European bench rest competitions. I almost never see them pop up on the forums for sale.

    Regardless, a .22 can be quite accurate at 100 yards. I would say the BSA R-10 in .22 would be more accurate at 100 yards than a .25 AA S510. Take a look at ColdKings video of his Steyr in .22. He is shooting ~1/2 groups at 100 yards with that thing. Granted, it’s a 3k rifle that has probably been tuned, but I’m just using that as an example that .22 can be very accurate at 100 yards. The ballistic coeffecient of a .25 pellet is slightly better so in any kind of breezy situation it will, apples to apples speaking, be slightly more accurate. If you take both a .22 and a .25 and shoot them inside with perfect conditions, accuracy will come down to the shooters ability as the different size pellets would be just as accurate once external factors are removed.

    I will say the two things that I do like better about the AA S-510 that I had was that I prefer the looks of the tube gun to the bottle gun and I prefer side lever cocking. Things like that take a back seat to accuracy though. I’m more of a “function over form” kind of person.

    without question the BSA R10 is among the better rifles. (there is no such beast as best) seen them online under 900.00
    I have it in .177 and .22 and working on converting another .22 into a .25.

    @grobe1458 does a filling adapter come with the rifle when u buy it? I’ll probably go with the bsa if I can fill it using foster quick disconnect I got a hand pump and scuba tank both with foster fitting

    BSA comes with a fill probe, but you can buy the adapter from Pyramid Air for like $10 to put a foster quick connect on the end of it. I do this with all my fill probe guns.

you get the probe but have to get the QC adapter that screws onto the probe.

    Hey Tn,

    It just occurred to me that it seems you’re willing to stretch the $1000 mark a bit. The lowest price I can find on the HW100 FSB is about $1300? For that kind of money you could also start looking at the Kalibrgun Cricket rifles and a few others. Also that could get you one heck of a used gun on the Classifieds. You could start looking at FX, Daystate, etc. I used to shy away from used but now I really like two things about it. The first being that you’re getting a proven rifle and can inquire as the accuracy of that gun specifically, what it’s capable of, etc. Also, while you might be looking for that “one gun” right now, you’ll likely get used to it after a while and want to try something else. I followed that exact same path and it became a bit expensive to me. You are always more likely to get your money back buying used. Just some food for thought. 

    All the best,
    Cliff
