1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    How about the age old .177 vs. .22 ?

    Only joking - we all know that that goes nowhere ...

    Haha I knew someone would say that ...

    Let us not forget that a .22 will travel at 2/3 the speed of a .177 and is twice the weight - also they carry more energy with them over greater distances. As long as you can correctly estimate the trajectory or a .22 I think you'll find that it's far superior ...

    See, I can blind you with facts 'n all that.

    :)

    its no good arguing its a fact that .177 is far superiour to .22
    all the top hunters and ft shooters use .177 , one day you too
    will see the light!!;)

    Pah ...

    But would you agree that .22 dominates .177 in FAC rifles ?

    A .177 doing 20 ft/lbs could be unstable, some might say ;)

    Preference

    I have a healthy mix of the best three... .177, .22 and .20 though my preference is .177 only for the flatter trajectory...most of my vermin work is done in high, long warehouses and the flatter trajectory is better especially if you are shooting through and between pallets...for 25yard work with the bunnies and squirrels I prefer .22 for that nice crunchy knock down...general purpose hunting (all species) it has to be .177 its just a good all rounder......and many thanks to you all for the welcome.

    Welcome aboard Nimrod

    I find myself more inclined to .177 as I do more target practice than hunting, not that Ive done much hunting

    Cheers

    Actually .22 can be good for plinking ( that's a form of target shooting ... in a way ) because it'll knock the can over instead of just going right through and out the other side.
