Very good shooting at that range. I hit one running in a tree last year a bit too far back with a .25 Predator from my Stubby gun (only 33 fpe at muzzle) and it left a hard ball size clump of guts hanging out as it hung to the tree branch long enough for a finishing shot. At 40+ fpe ME for the .25s the MRods have a lot of power relative to small game and do tremendous damage. It's deceiving because they are so quiet except for the pellet impact. Unlike a 22 LR that drills a little hole right through the pellets tend to transfer all of the energy to flesh.

Nice shooting! Those .25's must hit hard.

I heard a loud 'twaak' at impact on both...I have more instances of guts being 'blown' out with the .25 cal than ever with my .22's...
