  1. Just a quick one ladies & gents. Currently in the market for a new scope and have anything from £200-400 budget. However, their is just so much choice out there with multiple magnifications and lenses. For air rifle use is a variable magnification scope really necessary??? I like the look of the Hawke Tactical range and see that they have a fixed 10x Mag scope. I find that most of my shooting is done at 30-35 yards so is variable magnification really necessary or simply a nice to have? Also fixed magnification would eliminate changes in the reticle and holdover would remain consistent resulting in quicker alignment and shot taking. Interested in hearing your thoughts.......
  2. Do you have any experience of the tactical range?
  3. Which Sidewinder do you prefer as a see that you have different models and different reticles?
  4. If money isn't an issue and I mean less than £400 given the fact that will cover most scopes from the major Air Rifle players, what scope is the best for hunting? Consideration needs to include the reticle magnification etc.
  5. Has anyone had experience with an MTC Optics Genesis 5-20x50??? Are they MTC's equivalent of Hawke Sidewinder??? I notice Daystate lean towards MTC when opting for rifle scope combos.

    Daystate Airwolf - Who Has One???

    I suppose thats like most things in life, if they are expensive to buy they are generally expensive to service whether it be cars, boats, motorbikes etc. I don't see why rifles would be any different and I happy to accept the fact. There is just something about the Daystate range that I love apart from the fact that they look amazing.
  9. One of the most efficient heavy pellets in most guns are jsb heavies 10.3gr Well I guess my results show that not to be the case. Maybe it differs with a springer but through my Airwolf they certainly aren't. Well I guess my results show that not to be the case. It may well be with a springer but not in my airwolf Cant see any results showing JSB heavies Apologies I was talking about H&N Barracuda Match pellets @ 10.4gr.

    Air Rifles Going Over Power

    Not necessarily! What makes and types are most likely to produce the highest readings. I was thinking that a light pellet would leave the gun faster but the chrono would be set at the pellet weight so it should even out. I was told of a case where a gun was tested 20 times and were all in the limit so they just kept going and managed to get one at 12.1. I was also told that the owner of the gun was of interest to the testers and the gun was taken away. I don't know if he got it back. The Police have to deal with a lot of things that are not very nice but it sends shock waves when you hear about a gun going over, well to me any way because I am new and don't want any bother. I think I will try to get one that just can't go over what ever pellet is put in it or would that just make it not worth using. Why can't pellets be made so they will not take a gun over ? I'm afraid I don't have the experience to answer all your questions as I am also new to the sport. However if you look here: http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/topic/322394-fps-v-pellet-weight-legal/ @ post no.13 you can see some results from testing that i have done.
