I’ve been out in the field with the Hatsan Vectis rabbit hunting today, and have been impressed with this compact little lever action PCP. The rabbit still aren’t moving much in the day and the hunting was slow, but I managed to bag a half dozen after a long day and a lot of ground covered.
The Vectis I’m shooting is the .25 caliber and it’s moving the JSB 25.39 grain Exact at about 880 fps for over 30 fpe, which is a great. But it’s the accuracy along with the shootability that really impresses. I’d forgotten my shooting sticks when I went out this morning, so was shooting offhand or from the knee, and I hit six head shots (cleanly missing twice) at 25 -50 yards.
I’m writing up the story on the gun and the hunt for my column in Airgunner Magazine, but wanted to share this quick note with everyone visiting the American Airgun Hunter website. I’ll also edit the video and post within the next couple weeks.
Going out to a new property tomorrow, for another rabbit hunt, then I’ll start focusing on predators. Thanks for stopping by!
