We have all heard that squirrel are tough little critters, but any sensible energy level of an air rifle placed correctly should be effective. I don't want to use a baiting situation as walking around quietly in the woods for exercise is important to me as a helping hand towards arthritis to keep mobile. But here is my dillema. Don't want to use a shotgun so i've been using 11.5 ft /lbs with a 16g and a 34 ft/lbs with 18g fac. Both are dropping them with sensible range shooting, most however can cover a few yds before expiring. Shot placement is head or heart. So, in a walk and stalk scenario what's the feeling for sub 12 or fac ? Are the new pellets out, beginning with D, can't remember the name, with a cross on the head the latest super duper must have . I would add I have trapped a few in their garden for the owners, but this post is specifically requesting air rifle advice. Cheers in advance.
