Hi all,
After many years of burning powder and building wildcats for long range varmints (Magpies!, Plovers, Bunnies with a 20 cal) and target shooting (6.5 and 6mm variants) & the odd bit of smashing possums with my 12 gauge semi am super keen to get back into Air Rifle shooting where i started as a teenager (actually before i was a teenager .... in the late 70's .....).  The technology has moved on a bit!  Totally impressed actually

Am keen to get a recommendation on calibre and power level for bunnies (out to 30 - 60 yards).
My thinking was .22 cal and power lever of around 30ft/lbs

I look forward to your thoughts!

Cheers

Welcome,
This forum is pretty quiet. If you want 30fpe a PCP air rifle might be what you want. To get bunnies out to 50 yards, only 12 fpe is needed if you make a head shot.

Hi and welcome. 30fpe is an overkill for bunnies, i would be looking at a crosman or similar in .22 i use mine to take out bunnies out to 50+ yeards no problems just need to invest in a good scope.
