147 yards with the hm1000x Airgun. Had to hold 5 dots for wind and nailed it in the shoulder. This is my first AZ tuned gun and I'm not sure what he actually does to the guns but I would not change anything. I have had several out past the 100 yard mark but this is the farthest rabbit kill. Longest hog kill with this rifle is 167 yards. This is my go to varmint gun and its whisper quiet. The rabbit fell with the tail up and that is the white spot in the pic.


couple of pics of the gun

The gun by its self is 2k, I have another $500 in the shroud and tune, $275 bipod $1100 in the scope. It's a ridiculous amount for an Airgun but I do some competition shooting with it too and I get more enjoyment out of shooting long range shots with the Airgun than I do with the rifle. There is a lot that's involved with making a 150 yard shot. Climate plays a big factor in the way the pellet travels at that distance. Takes a lot of getting to know your gun and practice is cheap at least.

It's a mount for a video camera to video through the scope. I like to record my shots.

Is that a .30 or .25?

I too get more enjoyment out of my air rifles than powder guns.

Jkd106, look on airgundepot and pyramydair for a starter setup. A lot of guys start with a $500 Benjamin Marauder or Hatsan AT44, which you can easily shoot MOA out to 100yd with a well tuned version. Beyond that starts to get challenging. You can also start at less than $200 with a single shot PCP. Pellets are dirt cheap (per shot) compared to powder ammo, but filling equipment can get rather pricey.

AirgunofArizona carries more of the $$$ Euro guns. Many of the European countries are limited to 12 ft-lbs energy, so for them precision is an absolute must to make a kill shot at distance. We have no limits here in the US, so you can pretty much brute force it, if you want.

It's a .35 cal shooting JSB 81gr pellets. I started off with a used Benjamin marauder I bought for $300. Very accurate gun in .25 cal. I killed a lot of hogs with that gun but max distance for a hog kill for me was no more than 75 yards. Shoot small game at 100 all day long but hogs were a little tougher. I don't know how to post video or I would. I have tried several times but could not figure it out

Easiest way is to upload to Youtube or one of the other video host sites, then post a link to it here. If you want, you can set it up to be direct link only and not searchable by the general public.

Big bore is getting very popular these days. I do plan on getting into BB once I get a good compressor. For now, I got my BT65 tuned to just under 70 ft-lbf shooting JSB Heavy, and it's very effective out to 100yd on any small game I can find. Not sure I dare trying it on even a small hog just yet, but you've certainly proved it can be done.
