What Is Long-Range For An Airgun?

Long-Range Airgun Shooting

In this episode of American Airgunner, Rossi is joined by fellow airgun enthusiasts Tom “The Godfather” Gaylord, Jim Chapman, and Tyler Patner for a roundtable discussion on long-range shooting with airguns. Each individual in this discussion brings a unique perspective to the discussion.  Tom is a wealth of general knowledge, Jim has the perspective of a hunter, and Tyler is a national champion in competitive airgun shooting. Tune in as the guys discuss caliber choice, ballistic coefficients, velocity retention, energy on target, muzzle velocity, and how individual airguns perform at various distances. The bottom line is that there are a lot of variables that come into play when attempting shots at longer distances with an airgun.

What is considered long-range for an airgun? What’s the best caliber for long-range (250 yards +) shots? How do you shoot airguns consistently at long-range? All of these questions are up for discussion on this roundtable segment.
