AIRGUN DEPOT:
HOW FAR WILL AN AIR RIFLE KILL: PART 1:

In this video we revisit the original How Far will and Air Rifle Kill video and lob some big, heavy .45 caliber projectiles out to 611 yards. This video was filmed in the fall of 2016 and has been postponed due to some file corruption and the loss of our downrange target footage. You can clearly hear the impacts if you listen closely so we finally decided to post it. The results pretty much speak for themselves, there really isn't any stopping a lead bowling ball once it gets going. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

In this much requested video we pose the question, how far can an air rifle be deadly? Not enough credit is given to air rifles, but the performance of this.457 caliber Texan from Airforce Airguns may change your mind.

In this second part of our How Far Will a 9mm Kill? series we test the expansion characteristics of Federal HST 124gr ammunition at long range. We want to make it clear that, per the manufacturer, this ammunition is not designed to expand at extended ranges. We test the ammunition at 7 yards as a control, then proceed to dial in the artillery (KelTec Sub 2000) and drop some rounds in at 440 yards (400 meters). The results may surprise you...

125 Yard Starling Shot with Air Rifle - Laser Rangefinder Demonstration

Laser rangefinders are very powerful tools for the long-range shooter. The one in this video is the Bushnell Yardage Pro 450. It is a budget model, but serves me well. There are much fancier models from Bushnell, as well as Leica, Leupold, Nikon, and others.

Here is a full list of Equipment for this video:

The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:

Shooting Pigeons in Flight with FX Revolution

This is a re-upload. Warner Music Group had a hissy fit about the 20 seconds of Ride of the Valkyries that I used in the original version of this video. I disputed the claim - they won. So, rather than let them have creative control of my video, I pulled it. I used this opportunity to trim the fat out of the original (too much talking), before reuploading. I used a ROYALTY FREE version of the Wagner melody this time around (see below).



Music used in this video:
Tchaikovsky - Dance of the sugar plum fairies by Kevin MacLeod
Link:

Wagner - Ride of the valkyries (1921 Recording by American Symphony Orchestra - Edison Records)

My official review for the FX Revolution (Revo) can be found here:
Part 1:
Part 2:

Ahhh, the pure enjoyment of a semi-automatic airgun. In this video I attempt to shoot pigeons out of the sky. When you view the video, it seems like it shouldn't be too difficult to pluck them out of mid air, but this is not Nintendo Duck Hunt. The birds are moving very fast, requiring a substantial lead with the shot. They also change direction rapidly. And no matter how thick a flock of pigeons looks, there is MUCH more open space than pigeon space.

I realize that many may attempt to use this video to demonize me - calling me a hypocrite for not adhering to the one shot, one kill philosophy. I knew that making it might haunt me. But, with a semi-auto, I could unload on any animals not killed with the first shot (as luck would have it, this was not needed). This is something I can not do with my single shot. And this is also something that every bird hunter on earth must deal with. I've shot countless ducks and pheasants with a perfectly-placed shotgun blast - yet it still required a 2nd shot to finish them off. It's just the way it is. Anyone who says otherwise is blowing smoke.

Had I winged a bird, it would not have suffered long at all considering the rapid-fire accuracy of this gun. And I made certain to not fire on any that were flying over the corn field, so as not to lose them.

I'm always torn between making long explanations [like this one] of my actions, or just getting to the footage. If I preach too long - folks get bored. If I don't mention anything, others assume the worst and label me a demon or hypocrite.

I try to explain my actions - but, make no apologies.

So, enough of that.....

In this video we show just how far a 45 ACP is capable of retaining enough energy to cause a possible fatal would. We were only able to connect at long range with the 230gr Federal American Eagle FMJ loads on the pine board. We did fire a very limited number of the 230gr Federal HST loading at our Clear Ballistics Torso with no success. We will revisit the subject of expansion and penetration at range in a future video. Stay tuned.

How to Shoot in the Wind with a Mil Dot Scope - Chairgun Software Demonstration

This is Part 3 of a 3-part series on ranging long-distance targets (in the wind) with a PCP air rifle. In this tutorial, I apply the data that was estimated in Part 2, to the Chairgun Ballistics Software to reveal how complicated holdover shots can be predicted. Once you understand the system, you will go to the field armed with valuable information. Making shots like this took me years to perfect. With the help of this software, new shooters will be able to achieve the same results in much less time. I REALLY wish I would have had these digital tools available when I was young[er].

This hunting footage was captured February 15, 2011 in rural Wisconsin. It shows me hunting pigeons with my .22 PCP air rifle in very high wind (20-30mph or 9-13m/s). The gun used is an Edgun Matador .22 PCP air rifle, sighted in at 55 yards (50 meters). The scope is a Hawke Sidewinder 30 IR Tactical 6.5-20x (shooting @ 10x in this video). The pellets were JSB 18.1g, shooing @ 900fps (274m/s).

The Camera Mount I used to record through the scope can be found here:


The slow-motion camera I use to film the shots through the scope is the Casio EX-FC150. That camera is no longer made, but you can buy its successor (which is actually a better camera than the one I use) here:


The Exact same Hawke Scope that I use in this video (Sidewinder TAC 30 6.5-20x) can be found here:


You can download Chairgun from Hawke Optics' website:


The Chairgun Program is a powerful tool for airgunners, as well as powder burners. It is free from Hawke Optics, and is as much a part of my arsenal as the scope itself. The software is designed to compliment Hawke reticles. But a Hawke scope is not needed to use the program; many generic reticles are included in the menu. Hawke continuously updates and improves this software. At the time this video was made, the software version was 1.0.5a.

If Chairgun doesn't work for you, try the Simple Trajectory Program available at this site:

How to Shoot a Pigeon in the Wind - Ranging Targets

This is Part 2 of a 3-part series on ranging long-distance shots in the wind with an air rifle. In this tutorial, I show how to estimate target distance, as well as wind speed, wind direction, pellet speed and incline angle. All of this information will be applied in part 3 to show how to make complicated, long-range shots.

This hunting footage was captured February 15, 2011 in rural Wisconsin. It shows me hunting pigeons with my .22 PCP air rifle in very high wind (20-30mph or 9-13m/s). The gun used is an Edgun Matador .22 PCP air rifle, sighted in at 55 yards (50 meters). The scope is a Hawke Sidewinder 30 IR Tactical 6.5-20x (shooting @ 10x in this video).

Air Rifle Wax Slugs/Sabots Part 2

Watch Part 1 here:

Testing some revised wax slugs (crayon wax melted with lead shot and formed into a slug shape) and wax sabots (wax formed around a projectile, in this case bullets) which work much better than the first test rounds. Impressive results from the .50 air rifle.

Already shot a few more, so look for those two short videos up soon. Chronographed them too, both the wax slugs and sabots flew at around 645 feet per second. I'm looking for suggestions for targets, fire away in the comments!

Thanks for watching!
