I am shooting the same distance with my Nitro Phantom .22 that I did with my .177......The .177 shoots 250 fps faster but does no where near the same damage to targets that the .22 does.....These cans have big chunks missing....whereas the same number of shots with the .177 leaves only small holes.....Gotta love the .22.

Damage to pigeon meat at 75/80- yrds CHP 14.3 @ 720Fps is pretty nasty as well.

I can do the same damage to a can with my .177.I just need a tin or two of pellets.lol.Just kidding.That looks like about a dozen or so shots on that can. 22 pellets are heavy hitters for sure. And, I have to agree with Good Enough,that's pretty good shooting at 75 yards.And a Chinese gun to boot.Cool.

Actually I would never hunt grouse at THAT distance with a springer/ram.....I get bored with 40 or 50 yard targeting...so I stretch it out to 75 max for soup vans, pellet tins, etc. and get in close to 30 yards or so for hunting.I'm quite pleased that my hybrid Phantom/Venom shoots as well as it does.

720 to 725 with .22 pellets is pretty good. My HW only makes 680fps with a 14.43gr. Crossman HP.

The Brocock PCP runs about 785 with those pellets - 20 FPE.

your hybrid looks like the nitro fury. I have a 22 phantom spring-er that i love shooting also, no crono but the 22 tears apart the tin. i simply love the phantom stocks shape and ergonomics, top notch for hunting. Your shooting is awsome btw.

I chose 22 for most because of the dinky 177 pellets!

LOL - .25's are even easier to handle, Bob.
