    OK I woke up late Titus was barking orders to eat , so I gave him dog food he growled and looked at the MP .22  SLUGS .then at me and at the Edgun R5M so I said ok ok and grabbed my boots and went outside , and we decided to get him breakfast , We walked abot 150 yards when I hear AUG AUG an looked and saw 2 crows about  200 yards away , we hit the ground and they flew a bit twards us  big suckers , One landed the bigger one , I ranged him , 156 Yards and I estimated it to be 12mph wind it was blowing so I dialed and steadied with my atlas bipod on a branch , and shot , he got it in the neck ,he glided down and I did put a second shot in him as I was not sure if he was alive , while we retrieved his breakfast the other landed a bit farther , I went to shoot he flew before I was set up ,

    here is picture of it and TITUS getting ready to  EAT HIS CROW

    ha yes mike , since Titus ate his Coyote and squirrels , he accually barks and goes to get my slugs and any gun out , this means lets bag some lunch lol , I had 12 turkies here yesterday , I so wish season was open . lol  but currently only Crow and Coyote , and these need slugs as they tough , I bagged a crow last week titus was making a run to retrieve it when a Giant hawk with like brownish legs grabbed it and took off LOL

    TITUS loves to PCP hunt , he will go out in grueling conditions , my friends wont , I got to give him respect as his thing is under snow when we hunting lol , his thing   is only 2  inches from ground ha  LOU

    MIKE he also ate the owner of this RUG

    if you had only one edgun matador would it be a 22 or 25 cal shooting both slugs and pellets? I’m on the fence on caliber but like what you are doing with 22 slugs.

    No accually I like 25 caliber better , I have a 25 lelya 2.0I use it in my yard , but if I go hunting out of my 3 acra yard I have to use a .22 due to state regulations , I love my 30 caliber edgun and my leshiy in 22 one is 86fpe the other 27 fpe and my lelya 33 fpe , each has its place ,they all accurate with pellets and slugs and each one of them can shoot either ammo well , just have to tune differently .

    I have all 3  and love them all , but I need all If I am taking mice I use low power gun , If I am shooting long range or large game its .30 , this R5m with Crow is a new gun I only shot 2 times , I had my other edguns , I have been on fence to build a hi power ,22 and I have had all brands and I broke all of them , so I decided on edgun as I just havent had any failures in the gun and I have used my guns very hard , not just at bench then cleaning it , I use them and they hold POI ,

    OK back to your question I can answer , If I am in residental area a 22 leshiy , If I am in a wooded area with hills and brush Id ay lelya in 25

    If you got large game and want a solid gun Id go for R-5 super long with huma and use 52 grain slugs but you need land and no people or houses around they carry a long way  , so saftey and laws come into play here ,

     

    and for hunting where I live I like power and slugs so I need a hi power 22 for long range for 2019 I chose the R5m long with huma , which got me from 54 fpe to 61fpe I wanted all I can get  LOU
