Thinking about one of these, wondering which caliber for target shooting - as long distance as possible. Any 850 owners have input?

I had one and got rid of it. Mags notorious for failing to index once worn a little. CO2 - blaaaghh. Stock is hollow plastic and echos with every shot. Accuracy on mine was modest at best. Mine was a .22 and because of the lower velocity (<600 fps) compared to many pcps the pellets lobbed their way to the target - so not the best long range shooter. They look pretty though.
