If you want to see just what is available in high power air rifles then Google "Dragon Claw air rifle". that is a .50 (1/2") bore gun that can be tuned to give nearly 300 F P E. shooting a 210g bullet! (cant really call it a pellet at that weight!)

Most Precharge Air Guns are Capable of Exceeding UK's Sub 12.FP Rule
As mostly made for World Market - where extra power is allowed

But as stated the higher the Power the less Shots per Fill

Reason most FAC Rated Guns have Large air cyclinders

Also most have found it easer and cheaper to buy in a FAC Rated Gun than to try and upgrade
a Sub12FP to a FAC Rated Gun

Often second hand FAC Rifles are cheaper than Sub 12.FP as a smaller market

Yes FAC Rated Air Guns are far more expensive than shell fires

But first get a license then worry about what gun to get -
