    Does anyone know of a non-lethal pellet?  I’ve got some nuisance animals on my property that I don’t want to kill but want to highly discourage them from coming around.  I don’t want to use airsoft in my air rifle.  I’m looking for a .22 rubber round.

    Thanks,

    I used to do that with wadcutter pellets going really slow.    Loopy trajectory but sting like a bb gun.   Would be easier with a bb gun or and old multi pump air gun with only one or two pumps in it.  You can also just place water bottles next to the areas that the varmints are want to visit.  Fill the bottles with vinegar and put the lids on tight.   Then shoot the bottles when the varmint is near and it will spray vinegar all over him/her and they won,t like it.   Have fun..

    Another good, non lethal, and harmless method, is to use felt cleaning pellets.  They are accurate to around 20 yards with a 12 ft lb gun, they won’t hurt the animal, and won’t travel far if you miss.  Score a hit, it bounces right off, and scares the crap out of them.

    Maybe try bits of potato, that’s what my dad used to shoot the neighbours dog with to get him to stop shitting on our lawn.
    Funny to watch at the time.

    I called Crosman, Pyr. Air, AOA and they all said no one makes a rubber round.

    Thanks for the input, I like the felt cleaning pellet and the potato ideas.

    I make pellets by squirting hot melt glue into a bullet mould. They shoot great and are nonlethal beyond 10 feet. You could make your own mould by drilling multiple through a steel plate, aluminum or plastic and lay it on a flat surface and squirt in hot melt glue. After the glue sets use a wood chisel to trim the excess glue and punch out with a nail or punch. You’ll likely need to lube the holes with wD40 or similar to keep the pellets from sticking.
    Good luck and let us know it goes.

    When I was a kid we used chicken feed pellets. They were a perfect fit in a 177 springer and reasonably accurate. They packed enough wallop to drop feral pigeons and were soft enough to shoot each other with, only leaving a bruise.

    I would go with a cheap Crossman or Daisy multi pump. Give it one or two pumps and you’re good to go.

    Paintball gun a a sporting goods store for less than 100$. Works very well and is nonlethal.
