wow. 40 yards on power lever 2? That seems like a lot of un used  power. It goes to like setting number 12.

The rifle is killing em just fine at #2.

I'll dial it up higher when the woodchucks wake up in the spring  :)

Zelda, even at two it's going to blow right threw a squirrel. You'd need a .25 and/or a big hollow point to transfer anymore energy into the target.

Yea, but I could get better range if I turned it up right?

You can easily pop squirrels at 100 yards with the .22 and Kodiaks at 950.

I have mine set to .070. BUT every gun and I mean every gun is unique. Top hat, Power wheel, Fill pressure, Barrel length, Caliber, Pellet weight etc. Many many variables play into account here.

Anyone shooting a Condor .177?  I'm thinking a .177 with Kodiaks shooting about 950 - 1000 fps should give great longevity from a fill of air.  

Thoughts?  

Probably be a few months before a Condor fits into the Mrs. budget--but I'm sure liking what I'm reading about it!  :>)

Thanks!  Yeah, I think a Condor is in my future.  Wonder if the Mrs. would notice a $600 dent in the checking account?  Sigh.

The initial "dent" is nothing compared to what happens after that Lol.

True, Marvin, True.  I'm not sure I'm quite that brave!  However, if my elbow continues to act up every time I go shoot the CFX more than a few rounds I'll be able to justify a non-springer for health reasons.  

Somehow, it makes my elbow hurt just thinking about cocking that CFX a few dozen times this afternoon!  ;>)

Yeah, as is true for most hobbies!  Just don't tell the Mrs., OK?
