My wife got me a Remington .177 break action pellet rifle for Christmas. It came with a 4x32 scope, and I got some premium hollow point pellets for it. I tried seriously sighting it in today for the first time, since the starlings are becoming a real nuisance around the farm. At 50 feet, by the time I got done, the last group of 5 shots was dead on center and could be covered with a dime. Pellets go through half inch plywood like you'd expect from a .22 LR rifle. I'm seriously pleased with this thing. I nailed 4 starlings with it this afternoon, the last two being off hand, and at 25 yards and 45 yards respectively. Now, I'm a fair shot, and I'd expect to be able to do that with a .22 LR rifle, but I didn't expect this kind of accuracy or range out of a pellet gun. For $150 I'm very impressed. The only things I don't like about it are the clunky safety mechanism, and the fact that it probably weighs 8 or 9 pounds.
