Not really, other than being the most common stuff around here and cheap to shoot. I mainly just wanted a plinker with some speed behind it.
If I'm shooting something big enough or far enough to matter, I'm usually using a shotgun or centerfire rifle. I live out in the country, so there's nothing stopping me from opening the front door and letting loose.

I'm sure there's some relatively simple math that I'm just too ignorant to know that would solve this

we have the pellet weight, we have velocity, we have the distance and we should be able to figure out air resistance based on surface area and mass/density

I have a .22 air rifle and would love to kill these damn chipmunks that keep tearing up my garden, but I'm unsure about firing one in my backyard. There's no mention of air rifles specifically in my city or state laws, but I'm not certain about the risk of having the law knock on my door.

So don't use the light pellets that will actually go 1200fps.
Use the cheap 10.5gr domed crosman premier pellets at walmart. They barely hit 900fps with my 1300fps gun. They've been really good shooters for me too.

>>
>>28692594
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgi_Markov

depends on how quickly you want to kill your target.


Generally, though, the best you can hope for from piston powered rifles is 23 Joules (most countries in EU have the legal limit at 16.3 J, or 12 foot pounds), and that is good enough for taking small game like rabbits or pests, but for bigger targets you need a FAC rifle, and .177 or .22 won't cut it.

A few years ago I bought a magnum springer in .177. I've since read about how badly .177 overpenetrates, and I got to witness it firsthand when plinking some bullfrogs at a creek.

>>
>>28695869
You should really be using actual expanding hunting pellets if you want less passthrough and more energy transfer. Look into crosman destroyers.
But you're shooting frogs, that's not a lot to go through regardless.
>>
>>28695974
For short range hunting, wadcutters are better for thin skinned stuff because they will instantly begin to dump their energy instead of taking a while to expand. They also give a nice accuracy increase at up to 20 yards.
I've tested destroyers, and the little hollowpoint cup tends to get pulled off very early and the main pointed section will icepick the rest of the way through. Destroyers leave a nasty looking entry, but a very small exit, whereas the wadcutters leave an entry wound similar to the destroyers, and have an exit about the same size as the entry wound.
This goes for both birds and frogs at 25 yards or less , then I switch over to a real hunting pellet, especiallly if I'm going after something that is thicker skinned and require deeper penetration.
>>
>>28696515
You probably have too fast of gun for the destroyers, they do tend to do that from my much faster rifle.
Polymags expand and retain their weight, they leave a pretty big exit on whatever I hit them with.
>>
>>28696549
My .177 pellet gun does shoot in the upper 990-and very low 1000s, so that's probably my issue with destroyers. I've tried the gamo redfires, which are pretty much the poorfag equivalent of the polymag, and they have some pretty insane expansion. I've hit a few birds with a chest shot, and every hit was an almost instant kill with a pretty big exit wound. Headshots with redfires pretty much turn the bird's head into a puff of brain mist. I've not tried the polymags yet because they're pretty expensive,and I'm more of a casual plinker with some occasional hunting and not too serious about the hunting yet .
>>
>>28696681
>I've tried the gamo redfires
I had roughly the same experiences, it practically liquefies the bird's insides and knocks them out cold on impact with a loud THWAP noise.
Polymags are my main hunters, they're more accurate for me. I'd say the red fires are slightly nastier though, only slightly.

>>28696786
The redfires have preformed well, especially with body shots. My only dislike is the redfires aren't that accurate, sufficiently accurate for hunting, but definitely not the best. From the pellets I've been able to recover, the redfires will turn into a little doughnut of lead like the one on the far right in pic related. Removing the tip makes the pellets more or less explode, like the ones in the center of the picture.

So I've been looking at lower cost options at about ~50 dollars.

So far it seems like all there really is at that price is daisy powerline 80s and crosman 760.

Which of those is preferable as baby's first air rifle?

I've done some research and am leaning towards the daisy.

did you consider, perhaps, that feral pigeons are pests? Sometimes referred to as flying rats, they carry all kinds of diseases, and cause a lot of damage to crops, foul up farm animals' food with their excremant, and are a general nuisance.

As long as you are somwhere shooting pigeons is legal, there is good reason to blow them away en masse.

Pop quiz:

You are in britbongistan, walking in the woods, when you see a grey squirrel. What do you do?

If you said "kill it", well done for being a responsible human.

If you said something other than "kill it", you are a sick fuck and you disgust me.

>>28702962
It was the first kill with the rifle. Hundreds of its friends and other assorted woodland critters have fallen to its .177 780fps fury.

The land I shoot on is conditional upon me removing pests as I find them. This includes pigeons and rats.

Is pest control the reason why I shoot? No. I enjoy shooting and eating stuff like wood pigeon, pheasant and rabbit. It also gets me out into the countryside and away from the city/wife/baby for a few hours. So yes, I also do it for fun.
