    Wow! I couldn't believe I made this shot of 175 yards out on this squirrel with my FX Impact .30cal with a JSB Exact 50grain pellet. One shot one kill. Pellet went in the back of the head and dropped him right on the spot. I couldn't believe it!! I wish I had a video of it. I guess you'll have to take my word for it. My FX Impact is a tact driver for sure, no doubt. I love it!!! 

    What's your longest kill shot? Can you top that?

    GREAT SHOT!

    Yes but I can't prove it but the guns were 30 FX Bobcat and FX Boss and a 25 Condor SS.

    I don't have pictures, I have never taken pictures of anything that I killed or use any scope cams when I hunt because I don't want to miss my shots or get jinxed the next time. But thats just me…

    I don't mind looking at photos of dead animals others have shot though I can appreciate that for sharing.

    Holy cripe!!   I'm about 50 yds shy of that………though I'll be trying for a 150yd pigeon as soon as my slug liner comes in!  

    Excellent shooting and thanks for telling us about it!

    What scope do you have mounted on your FX? the Hubble?

    I'm not sure I could even see one at that distance, let alone hit one in the head.  That pellet drop at that distance had to be over 4 feet.

    Well personally I think it's a ground hog with a tail.  😄😄 you know they do climb trees. 

    Heck of a shot for sure.   The one shot one kill is the hard part.  If they sit there and give you three or four try's still impressive but one shot at 175 with anything is worth talking about.  I know nothing about 30 cal but many I should learn

    Smitty911 I'm sure it was a lucky shot on my part. But sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. I use a Hawke Scope 4X16X50 on my Impact. Check out the link below.

    Airgunner,

    I'll take luck every time ;)  That scope is close to the Hubble as well.  Good to know you can see things out that far.  I have a Aztec 5.5-25 X 50 mounted on my Red Wolf .22hp so now I'm sure I'll at least see them so I can sneak up to within 20 yards, miss and scare them into having an heart attack. ;)

    Very impressive shot. What fps is that 50gr pellet flying at?

    I guess i gotta stay on the porch, when ya can't run with the big dogs!🤐

    Great shot, I hope you keep that one in the memory bank for a long time. Keeping those shots fresh in my mind is the biggest reason that I like to video.  Not only can I see how I did good (and not), re watching my videos and clips feeds my need when work, family and life get in the way of shooting.  Life is short, do what you gotta do to enjoy it to the max.

    TR, My goal now is to go for 200yds. I'm going to start practicing at 200yds with targets. Then once I get my shots down consistently on paper, I will try for another kill.
