Here are some damage pics, the holes other then the .22 are from the Umarex .177. These pics are a side view of the damage from a 2x4, I split the 2x4 down the sides with a chisel to take a peek !

:rolleyes:

here is the damage done with the .22 on a piece of hardwood that was 1" 1/8" in thickness, behind it was more hardwood, it also stuck into that pretty good, well good enough to make it super hard to pry it out with some channel locks.

The squished pellets on the hardwood that you see beside the .22 exit hole are from under 500fps rifles that were tested at an earlier time from awhile ago .. for any inquiring minds.

Yes of course, along with my outdoors card for hunting. I also repair firearms on the side, as well as computers. two of my hobbies.

Also I would like to mention that I have owned many PCP, Springers & Nitro pellet guns and this is just my opinion but the Ruger Air Magnum is very very impressive and I will go as far as to say that it is one of the best air rifles I have ever owned, it feels really good for me while shooting, its a bit heavy but I like that as it helps keep it nice and stable while it fires. The accuracy is not bad at all once you get a feel for the rifle and then there is the power. Its just unbelievable for a .22 magnum springer, this thing can play with the bigger boys easily if not better. mind you these impressions are with the Vortec PG2 kit installed as well so keep that in mind if your reading this as the tune drastically changes its behavior and characteristics.

If anyone has any requests on some other materiel to do a ballistics test on that I may have .. likely .. just ask :)

No problem !

One thing that is a bonus as well with these vortec kits is the fact that you have less recoil and less vibrations and that helps with keeping your scope tight with less chance of any sort of scope creeping.

If anyone uses a swivel bolt bi-pod on one of these, I would suggest greasing or taring the springs inside the bi-pod telescopic legs, If not the bi-pod will vibrate like mad after each shot, Its highly annoying to listen too ! Its really tricky to reassemble them though because of a pin going through the spring end loop and leg holes as well as the rubber stop ends, be prepared lol. It will completely eliminate the twang buzz sound from the bi-pod though.
