Does anyone use a sub12 .25cal for close range ferals, rats and squirrels?, wondered if bigger slower pellets would stop pass throughs at short distances say upto 20yds...

I bought one years ago couldn't get any kind of grouping with it took it back, ended up getting an ultra which was okay for the money no theoben rapid though. I think the .25 was BSA lightening, crap in my view might be better these days don't know.

I did the same a couple of years ago got the r10se in .25, tried numerous pellets couldnt even get it to group in the garden at 20yds ended up part exing it 8 months later, but still fancy a..25...

I'd be inclined to try flat head in .22 then I never had a problem with .20 dome head forgot brand but very accurate, only over kill I had was with a naughty gasram theoben fenman, .22

.25 will do the business at short range - it's just a bit wank at sub 12 velocities. 

.......... you're better off with a decent catty, 12mm lead and lots of practice :yes:

 ....... or a .22

 

Go FAC air - you'll like the caliber much more ;)

I have a bsa scorpion se in .25 . If your just wanting it for up to 20 yards then deffinalty get one. 

Just remember if it's Over 20 yards ull prob be better off throwing the gun at it,

.25 in fac is fantastic out to in excess of 100mts using AA Fields but I have never seen the appeal in sub12 although I think there is someone on here who uses one with great success.

Phil , have got the FX plenum kit for your impact yet ? 
if not buy one , my mate has just installed one on his mk1 and with 34 gr JSB , he is achieving 935 940 FPS on 130 bar on the reg . I am achieving 990 with the same kit , but tuned it at 975-980 @ 130 bar on reg 

With AA fields 25.4 gr 1050 fps

Stroll on Mitch, thats quite impressive. I watched how to install one but it looks a bit tricky to say the least.
