Ferral Cats, Gray Foxes, Wild Turkeys, Opossums & Ground Hogs
If you have a problem with pests the size of Opossums, Gray Foxes, Wild Turkeys, Feral Cats or Groundhogs, an air rifle with 25 to 38 foot pounds of energy (fpe) will drop them like a bad habit. At a distance of 10 yards, the pellet will penetrate approximately 5/8 of an inch (25 fpe) to 7/8 of an inch (35 fpe) into a Douglas fir 2 x 12. These air rifles are most accurate with a round nose pellet ranging in weight from 10 grains to 18 grains. Pointed pellets should be avoided because they are known to be a cause of a jammed magazine. The “magic” pellet is found by balancing the weight of the pellet to the air pressure that the gun puts out; each air rifle has its own personality.
