I have killed about 150 birds so far with the Monsoon. It has not been without some frustration, and I had hopes of much higher numbers prior to undertaking this task. That said, I think this is the right tool for the job, as these waterfowl do not flinch when hit with a body shot to their downy mass. Clean head shots with follow ups are generally the order of the day. I am thinking of acquiring a Rapid in .20 cal. to see how well we do without the semi-auto feature. I would really like to maintain sight picture for second shot, but am not sure if it's possible with other rifles. These birds are known as mud-hens because they bob their heads so much, making them a challenging prey. Pictures coming next time. Keep forgetting the camera.

I will be interested in the comparison, of the 2 rifles.

LHG,

between you and me posting your picture request, we should get somewhere.

I always forget my camera, but snapped this with my phone. This is a coot.
I don't see penetration wound, but he went down fast. This bird was with 5 of his buddies, and I got four of them in about 5 seconds with the Monsoon. Now that I switched to JSB's, I am truly getting the most out of this rifle.

I've heard that some people like them, but most say they are not good eating. They are a decent size at 2 Lbs. +.
