    Rat pellets

    Try .hobbys . H+n hunter extreems Rws super hollow points. Falcon accuracy plus. To start with If none of them work for you then your missing the rat. Usually underneath for close shots . Ps the ultimate rat stopper in my experience is a .177 hobby running around 16 fpe and 1000 + fps . × SPLAT ×🤣

    Exposing a stone wall

    Ps its caked in loads of paint to try to stop the damp coming through .

    Exposing a stone wall

    Id put the plaster board back its there to stop the damp getting into your house . Old farm house , solid walls ,with no damp course .= wet walls which are cold .with flaky paint and mould . Plaster board separates the wet from the room . It also looks better than an old wall imo. Unless you intend to return the building back into a cow shed id cover it back up .

    Rat pellets

    Oh dont get me wrong any pellet (and at any energy ) to the correct place (head ) will kill a rat on the spot .accuracy being the key . But rats are jumpy critters and front body shots are more often taken over head shots .and in those cases, all my infomation above come into play . Is second that great pellets

    Kofs.

    Thanks that makes more sense . The gun is really nice and seems to have every thing i need . Multi chokes.ali block .Walnut stock .parkerised 26 inch barrels .selectable non auto safety .ejectors .shorter stock And i actually paid £435 for the gun . And it opens and closes lovely and the machining looks spot on.wood to metal is ok and the engraving is shallow and a bit patchy but those things dont bother me. It always amazes me that more shot guns dont come with adjustable stocks for pull and comb height .as its so critical to hitting what you think your aiming at .

    Rat pellets

    Just to illustrate how well this dumping of all the available energy is . Ive shot and killed cleaner more rats with. .177 pistol /carbine at 5.5 fpe and hobbies than i have with a 12 fpe .22 using standard round head pellets . This is in barns around 5 to 15 yds. (Very typical ranges ) Obviously at say 30 yds 5.5 fpe would be out of its depth .but up to 15 yds its great .only bettered by a 12 fpe .177 shooting hobbys

    Rat pellets

    So this is quite a common problem with .22 pellets on rats especially with something heavy and penetrating like a bisley magnum or even a 16 grn exact . They go straight through and impart little energy .into the rat .you see the rat jump into the air and run off .the pellet goes through and bounces of what ever is behind making indoor shots scary. What you need to counter act this is a light weight, fast moving low bc pellet . A great choice is a rws hobby in .22 Bsa barrels tend to shoot them very well up to 25 yds .some times a bit more . They smack rats hard and dump a lot of energy into the rat . They may leave the barrel with a bit less energy than a jsb and hit with less energy but they impart much more of that energy into the quarry and thats the bit that matters.

    Otter?

    Apparently they start in the middle so it couldnt have been a pterodactyl

    Mate has a 14.75 inch hatsan sa.i cant shoot it .it snags every time i try to shoulder it and both my hands feel too far forward to balance the gun . He is a bit smaller than i all round and he too finds it a bit long but not as bad as i do . Un fortunately its a synthetic stock and not easy to alter . Ps he was with me today and when i bought my kofs and also liked the 13.75 in (with pad ) pull

    If its perfect for a rifle why not a shotgun .? I know they are different bit surely not to the tune of an extra inch .?

    Also i might have this gun moderated in the future. So the 26 inch barrels will help with that
