loads more... MAIN THING ... PRACTICE PRACTICE. you said you have shot targets before so if you can hit a 2p at whatever range, 20yds 30yds 40yds... then shoot to the range you can hit the 2p EVERY TIME.


as for .177 / .22 it doesent matter, if the pellet enters the brain the rabbit is dead simple.

.177 flies flatter so if your not so good with estimating distances go for .177


all the best
