.22 Rapid MK2 & .25 Rapid MK2 (video)

Postby SP » Fri Dec 01, 2006 5:43 pm

I did a back to back test, shooting Swifts steel pigeons at 35 yards.. Notice how much harder .25 cal hits compared to the .22..

Most all the pcp's that put out 30 + fps really have a great impact on the target, as you can see from all the shrap metal that has cut the paper in the pic's on SP's post............ Dusted.......... :twisted:

Thanks guys, i actually turned down the power on my .25 rapid. Shooting .25 31 grain Kodiaks at 970FPS.. Ballistic wise, I see no difference between 1000+FPS and 970FPS.. A crow, sparrow, getting hit by either velocity, looks the same. Secondly, reducing the power has reduced some recoil as well. Thanks

What is the stock ft. lbs. on the 25 MK2? How close was this target test to factory levels?

Is there anyone who might stock a tuned quieted MK2 in this caliber?

Thanks
