The Zeus is an air-hungry gun, and between the high-fill pressure and air consumption over three to four shots, it’s probably not the best option for informal plinking or target shooting.


Quite the best!

Quite an excellent big game rifle, indeed.
For most NA game, the 1 1/4ounce round ball (545gr.) is all that would be necessary, as long as the vel. was up around 900fps to 1,000fps.
Max range would be under 100yards. I am talking about ALL game animals here.
The 440gr. HP is only just over an ounce & being HP, would not be suitable for game other than up to deer and normal black bears. I would
want more, for the outsized black bears of Haida Gwaii. For grizzlies - I'd draw the line at my 14 bore rifle, that has a LOT more power.
As to the Zeus, I'd want no less than a 20" to 24" bl.
