My usual goto prairie dog rifle is my .22 cal FX 2000 shooting the 18 grain JSB's. Those deliver 30 fpe at the muzzle. The .25 cal Marauder is shooting the Kodiak 31 grain pellets at 46 fpe at the muzzle. So yes it is a serious increase in power. This was first time I've had a chance to hunt it, and I'm very favorably impressed with its performance.
As always, nice shooting. I really enjoy your videos and this one is no exception. That .25 looks like it hits a lot harder than a .22. I am starting to think I may need to get on the .25 bandwagon with my next air gun purchase!

Thanks. I really like the stock, unfortunately, the guy I got it from isn't somebody I will be doing business with again.
Very impressive. And that stock on your Marauder is beautiful.

Glad you enjoyed it. The wind flag really made a difference. For once I could tell exactly what direction the wind was coming from. Sometimes, believe it not, it can be difficult to get an accurate read.
Great post! I also liked the video and wind flag you built out of the old video tape.

It is a terrible job, but I'm a tough old coot and will manage somehow.
Great post Cliff. In one of the shots, you can see the effect of the pellet's impact just as the the APD gets struck by the pellet.When ethics and "responsibilty" is the bottom line of hunting with an airgun, the work you are doing will be good examples of why airgun hunters are setting the stage for the future of hunting.Thanks for all that you are doing. It must be real rough, but I'm sure you're making it through some how. Don't hesitsate to call on me if you need anyone to do the shooting for you if need be !!!

This gun is turning out to be exactly what I was looking for to use in these windy dog towns. I'm thrilled with the performance so far.
Great video as always. That .25 sure does buck the wind and put the critters down with authority.
