    Just made this 114 yard shot with WC Compact on a spring of the year chuck. Strelok Pro gave me the holdover and the shot went right into the throat. Shooting JSB 25gr at 870fps. Chuck ran about 5 yards and dropped. This is my longest chuck shot to date. 6:30pm 6/26.  The Compact will perform!!

    What does that “chuck” weigh? They were quite large when we used to shoot them in Colorado in the early 1960’s when I was a small kid.

    He wasn't that big which made it even harder to hit, around 3lbs.  I'm used to 8-9 pounders which make a very nice sized target.  Thanks Bob, my all time longest so far was 135 yards on a starling with the new Compact. Couldn't do any of it without my Bushnell rangefinding binos and strelok app. I shoot from 80-100 yards all the time and that makes the long shots much easier, especially when the wind is calm like it was tonight when I shot this one. My next mission is to get the Redwolf sighted in at 100 yards with the 25gr 22cal beasts. Then i will mount the sideshot and give a video post a try. The thud this hit made was amazing, the wife said I didn't hear you shoot but I heard the impact. I was laying prone on the deck 5 feet in front of her. The DonnyFL KOI at it's best. The Compact is definitely a winner for me. This is my 3rd woodchuck with this gun and the results are spot on.

    Awesome shot!! You definitely have a great gun and tune but it all means nothing if you don’t have the skills to calculate and execute!

    Very nice kill shot.

    My longest to date is a ground squirrel at 121 yards.  Just got another last Saturday at 101 yards.  Shooting a Gen I Wildcat 25, with a Burris Verocity FFP scope and 25.4 Air Arms pellets.

    So you have found the air arms pellets more accurate/consistent than the jsb’s? (Revoman)

    Matt247365  Is the slug barrel cal. .25 or slug barrel cal. .22  best for my Crown for long range accuracy? I know you have your finger on the pulse! : )

    Nice shot! I also have Donny's Koi moderator which is awesome. Is that an SWFA fixed scope? What power magnification is it?

    It is the 20x fixed, had issues with glare but put a killflash filter on it and been smashing everything I can with it since. I like my Athlon scopes but wanted a smaller rear focus scope for the Compact. Hasn't let me down yet, got around 1000 rounds thru the gun in the l asst 3 weeks no issues.

    It is the SS series 20x fixed, had issues with glare at first but put a killflash filter on it and been smashing everything I can with it since. I like my Athlon scopes but wanted a smaller rear focus scope for the Compact. Hasn't let me down yet, got around 1000 rounds thru the gun in the last 3 weeks with no issues.

    Nice. I have an SWFA Fixed 10x with side focus on my Daystate Huntsman Regal. 22 and love that scope. No glare/milky issues because it's a lower magnification. I've heard about the glare issues with the fixed 12x, 16x and 20x models and having to install sun shades to "fix" the issue. The Koi looks perfect on the Wildcat. I have Donny's Sumo, Fat Boy, Koi, Tanto, and a Neil Clague LDC that I switch between two rifles and they're all quiet with similar sound signatures. What impresses me is Donny's Tanto moderator which I just received. Same diameter as the Koi but shorter (5 inches) and it's hard to tell the difference between the two as far as quietness. I've been thinking about getting a Wildcat or Taipan Veteran in .25cal for my first bullpup. Been saving up for the meantime. Anyways, good shooting and nice rifle. It's a nice feeling when you make those long range shots on small game.

    Awesome shootin' with a awesome Wildcat.  I'm really impressed with my Compact.

    I have several bullpups – Vulcan, Kricket, Taipan Veteran, but this new FX is truly a

    refined piece of hardware.  

    Thanks for sharing.

    I’m hoping they (utah Airguns) will do the regular 25 mk2 with the new stx heavy pellet Barrel. Maybe shooting 34grn around 900fps that would be one heck of a long range hunter.
