It would be nice if someone could post a .25 calibre round nose into a can at 50 yards @700 fps...just curious of the difference in damage...looking at a gun for sale for mostly rabbit hunting and think the .25 is the way to go...

Yes pal rated pack a punch and I love reactive targets like soup cans because they jump, flip and spin...I also sprinkle powdered colored chalk on top of each can for added effect .....also you can check what effect each type of pellet has at different fps.....pretty cool... :)

When I take my nephews shooting I buy a cheap 12 pack case of cream soda soft drink cans from Walmart and shake them up really good when placing them as targets , they make a good pop and splat when hit.

I smacked 3 meat rabbits (escapees) a couple weekends ago, with my .25 Condor using H&N's - range 20 to 30yards. My first shot hit a branch or twig and was deflected down and left,
going through both front shoulders. The next two were both side head-shots. Result was 3 dead rabbits - 9 pounds - ruined front shoulder 1 pound, = 8 pounds cut and wrapped.

These rabbits, originally only 4 escapees have grown in numbers and since the kids have shot a few with their .22's, they are now bloody wild - more so than wild snow shoe hares.

Haven't eaten any yet - plan on a nice bunny stew when the kids come down from DCreek for a visit. My daughters grew up on bunny stew, along with deer, bear, moose, elk and grouse, of course.

My Crossman - good shooting with those springers.

What a nice hunter's family ~ :D

Rabbits some times grows very fast... I remember years ago, one of my friend had some constructions in the back yard, and some holes were digged here and there... It's in the city but a park very close to the house... Then, the other day, he got 2 rabbits in one of the hole.... Gave me a good laugh in the lunch time ~
