    lol Flathats, thought you were talking about break-in for new (virginal) air-rifle, although I did shoot spitwads at virgins back when I was a virgin kid too.
    Those Benjamins are both highly rated. And the .22 caliber is good for hunting.
    I personally toy with a RWS Dana 34 in .177 for long range plinking and light varmitting. A spring-air break barrel model, it is very sensitive to one's hold. If I were to do it over I would get the pneumatic rather than metal spring to avoid the twisting torque and double recoil of the unwinding metal spring.
    However when in the groove with a consistent hold and a heavy dome shaped pellet I have impressed myself. The 12 power scope makes the groups look a little big untill I walk up for a closer look. Wadcutters tend to wander off target after about 15 yards and the hard alloy light pellets miss terribly at longer ranges. Possibly they lose stability as they slow down to transonic speeds downrange? My gun likes the heaviest pellet I have found.

    This break in is going to be aggravating....thought hard about a RWS....but decided I would lose my virginity on a lower end rifle....after about 50 rounds I can shoot better groups with my suppressed Browning Buckmark....

    The light hard alloy pellets come out of the barrel unstable. It is because they are sonic and not good at it.

    I use them for practice when I am BBQ'ing and on the Outdoor channel the air gunner show the guys take's down game you would take with a .22cal rimfire. get a trap box and you will not believe the ammo for a pellet gun it is a blast. 10712113_10203724219138056_1717793860_o.jpg my pistol and trap box.

    Yeah, I saw them use one of of those .50 cal Chinese Dragons pre-charged pneumatics to hunt wild boar successfully. I'll stick to punching little holes in cat food cans though and continue to buy my bacon at the market as I hear those boars can be hard to put down.
