    Thanks, I’m pretty sure he soiled himself also. I could hear the pellet make contact on that 6″ pvc piping but the distance and those little twigs I could not follow pellet flight as usual

    The only thing you are missing is the crackle but you sure got the snap and pop with that .30 caliber. And that is all you need. Great shooting and it looks like the last 150 yard shot the pellet hit just short of his left front leg. You might of fragged him. Bill

    My brother noted to me that the barrel seems long and airtube short. Is your gun still stock? We both shoot Bobcats and wondered. Sorry for all the questions nappyman but a fellow needs to learn when watching a dead eye.

    Gun is still stock, it has the one piece factory lcd, about 5-6-1/2″. Gun was purchased a little after Ted had them change the stock, the bigger or longer air tube were not offered back then. Mine is a 1st gen 2nd rev.  Not the mk2

Thanks, will do. Normally use the .25 rainstorm twice as much on ground squirrels, it’s more that enough most times. The .30 allows less than stellar shot placement and still kill them dead right there or they bleed out in there hole from the massif hole. Rather kill them right there but our main responsibility is to thin off or make these pest disappear as the damage they cause is and can be heavy

Yes I have, when I first got the gun. AOA sent a can I shot about #50 of them and was on the phone crying about why the sent those vs the 44.75g.    

    They do do not shoot as good as the 44.75 but my major grip was @850fps just is not going to get it! If I new for sure the smooth twist barrel could handle 930fps without loosing  accuracy I would ship it off to AOA to adjust not worried about 24 regulated shots I would be good with two clips at that speed.

Thanks, yes it really hits them hard. What I like is for what ever reason you pull a shot, sudden wind ect…less than stellar shots will still put them down right there or very soon after.

    Does the .30 Cal Bobcat get the same accuracy as the .25 does at 100 yards?

    Curious..

I’d say yes, but don’t have .25 to compare. I have got 5/8-3/4 ten shot groups on days with no wind but doing my part is a MUST! 
    Have a day with no wind lately seems just a dream. The other day did a 9 shot group at 50 that was 1/4-3/8 one ragged hole. A week later went to pick up gun during a hunt and the scope almost slid off the rails. Witch means it had been loose for over a year . During that time had knock it over at lest 3 times on the bipod:(.  Tighten her all back up, realined everything three days ago everything good to go out to 50yards 1/2″ groups or less

Thanks, yes he did loose his luck. I think at that distance he heard the shot and was running for cover. Had hit one and missed one in that area, so he knew that sound was danger. Had to look at that shot 6-9 times on slow mo before I was convinced it was a lethal hit.
