My new order of 5 tins the good price Stoeger .22 wadcutters just arrived yesterday ~ and I suddenly found out it looks I don't have that many .22 guns to use the .22 pellets I stock up....

What I got right now just a 2240 and a 1322 ( scope just removed, so no sights on it currently)....

I planned on a .22 HW30, however at last I got a .177... Do I better to get another .22 once D&L has them back in the stock?!

And there is one Camo Chaser carbine on the list from Wes, but still patiently waiting it come arrive...

Is that really the 177 calibers more popular than the .22?

What do you have in the house?

And maybe another good reason for me to buy a new gun now.... ;)

For .177: 1377 and a Tau 7 (needs a new main seal)

For .22: AA S410 TDR, Webley VMX (pal rated) and a 2289

For .25: modified 1325 and a marauder (just started tuning and tinkering)

I’ve got a CR600W pcp in .22 coming from Wes

So currently .22 is taking over at my place.

I'm waiting on Wes to get a 177, PP700SA in.

I currently only have a Daisy Buck, and a couple P17s. I just like 177 because it's cheaper to shoot. IF I need to pest. I opted to use my 22LR, with 22 CB or CCI 22 Quiets. 28grn @ 710 FPS or 40 grn at 710 FPS.

My stuff's all .177 and .22, with the occasional BB...
Love to try out a large-caliber air rifle if I ever got the chance. :wink:

Only 177 calibers in the house. If they don't shoot the pellets I want them to I sell/give away the gun. Two different pellets in the house and any new gun better like one of the two pellets I keep here. Crossman wad cutters or Grizzly wadcutters :lol:

Like the .177 bec it's shoots more straight and cheaper, have some .22, like it bec the pellet is easy to grab and load, besides the power.

An Alecto with .177, .22, and .25 barrels.
A Diana 240 in .177
A modded 1322 in .22
A cheapie breakbarrel inn .177
An adorable little slavia 622 in .22

My plan is to leave .177 behind and move into .22 and .25 only. When I finally breakdown an invest in a magnum powered springer, I will probably go .22 to keep ammo cheap, but the idea of a .25 powerhouse is pretty interesting. Currently doing some reading about the way heavy pellets impact the life of the powerplant. It seems like springs may get fatigued early if pellets are heavy, whereas gas-ram powerplants may be less susceptible to failure because of this.

I have 5 in .22 cal and 1 in .177 cal.

The .177 was the one that got me started in this madness..
What a crazy addiction. :shock:

I'm a Non-PAL clumsy fingers airgunner, so I prefer .22 for its handling size and FPE. My .177 rifles are mostly those that I couldn't get as .22 in Non-PAL. I do have QB78/79 in .177, .22 and .25; the .25 was a do it myself conversion with a LW barrel and bolt from a long time forum guru. I find the .25 pellets are a bit too expensive for what they do for me. Since I only shoot target, I don't need more FPE than a .22 to make a satisfying plink at 30 yards.
As to how many.. honestly I don't know and I stopped counting after I sold a bunch after my dear wife said too many.
