|The .30 Caliber Pellet
I've been using a lot of .30 caliber gun that shoot diabolo
pellets, for the last couple of years.
It seems as though more manufacturers are moving towards
this pellet caliber, currently produced only by JSB. I have
been getting both range time and hunting experience with it
using guns from Hatsan, Evanix, FX, Daystate, and recently
MRODAIR.Over the next couple months I'm going to take a
close look at the .30 and answer a question I posed a while
back, is the .30 the new .25?
|I shot this rifle at an airgun show down in Texas a few months ago,
then looked at it again during the SHOT Show. But then a couple
days ago the gun finally showed up on my doorstep. I got the gun
sighted in, ran a few different projectiles across the chrony, shot
some targets (unfortunately I was limited to a 20 yard range), but at
least have ot the point where I can take it out coyote hunting tonight!

|This is one of the hottest new big bore airguns to come along;
it's compact bullpup, has an integrated shroud, is putting out
around 275 fpe for 6 shots, and uses a sidle lever cocking
mechanism to cycle a robust and well designed magazine. If
you're a big bore shooter you need to see this gun!
|I've been shooting the Compatto for a few weeks and have been
impressed by the design, quality, and performance. I think this gun is an
incredible value, not inexpensive, but when compared with other guns in
it's class. The real proof for me is when I can get the gun out hunting, and
thats what you'll see in this video.
|On a trip down south, there was a short break in the weather
that let us get out after javalina. I was using the Badger .40,
which is one of the best values to be found in airgunning, and
specifically the most affordable of the powerful big bores. The
gun is distributed through Airgun Depot.
The Badger is accurate, powerful, fairly light (compared to
most other big bores) and because of the simple design it is
reliable. I believe the .40 is a brilliant caliber, that is a strong
performer on deer sized game, while flat shooting enough to be
a solid longer range predator gun as well. . The reason I think
this gun a game changer, is availability and price. Now more
people can buy a rifle without waiting and without the high
costs associated with the fine custom guns, and more hunters
in the field the quicker game laws will evolve!
