23 squirrels today.


Recommended Posts

Noticed a wood of mine bursting with squirrels yesterday so went back today with my 99.

Took a photo of eight but went on to get 23. 

I used a mixed bunch of pellets I got recently from a shop. Separated the shot, 17&22 pellets weeks ago but as I knew ranges were going to be low I just grabbed a hand full.

On the way back I had a major plink, think I shot 200 pellets today and I was knackered, that's a lot of cocking!

Any way it was good to be out with an air rifle again.

Next to no pellets passed through and bisley pest control give no expansion at sub 12. Some rws pointed seemed to really whollop them and the hobbies the same. Bizzy mags knock the wind out of them but domes seemed to do very little as the cheap twin ringed pointed things.

Gotta say I love the 99. It's shoots most pellets with acceptable hunting accuracy except the real cheap ammo.
