So if I'm to get a new rifle what would you all say it's the best air rifle for hunting anything from doves to rabbits ar a little bigger?
Let's stick to .22 cal.
And thinking of shoots over 50 yards

So I want to hear you're opinions and experience.

I have collected airguns for years and use them all if you are looking for a pump up I love the old Sheridan Blue Streak.

They are light and accurate i have a few with the "Steroid" package but 8 pumps on a regular Streak will dispatch any small game

They are not .22 they are 5 mm and pellets are readily available The old Blue Streak is not being made but Benjamin Sheridan has the modern equivalent

"Best" is a very generic term.

Almost any of the modern .22 break barrel or PCP air rifles today are just fine for hunting small game out to 35 yds.

Just don't rely on those ridiculous FPS claims. Find out what weight pellet they used and recalculate it with a 14 gr hunting pellet.

You need at least 10 FPE at 50 yds for a humane kill.

Break barrel springers are fine, but there is a technique to acquiring consistent accuracy especially at distance.

PCP's are easier to control for accuracy, but they are also more expensive.

If you want to hunt out to 50+ yds on a regular basis, then PCP is the way to go.

The Gamo you listed would be fine for what you want to do, but

I can tell you from experience, a 50 yd shot in a 1" kill zone takes lots of practice with a springer.

For a better recommendation. what is your budget?

If you no experience with spring powered just remember there's a learning curve with leaning how to shoot them the Gamo rifles are just OK.

PCP rifles are easier to shoot but there are other things to get like air tanks

Benjamin marauder pop. It is an air rifle, probably it will run you in the 800 along with scope, rings, pump.

At 30 yards I shoot quarter size groups easily without much trying of a bipod. It loves the 18gr diabolo exact heavy. Super accurate.

I will day it is a PITA to fully pump to 3000psi. Prepare for a workout!

I have a Benjamin Marauder PCP in .22, and it is very accurate as well as quiet due to the integral shroud. It's pricey to get into though ($350-$400), and you need to invest in an air source of one type or another.

I have come across more affordable high pressure compressors on Amazon for under $300, but have not sprung for one yet and use the Hill hand pump with my rifle.

That's good to know.

I paid over $500 for the original Shoebox compressor, and while it worked OK, it was kind of Rube Goldbergish.

I got rid of it for that reason. $500 gets a lot of scuba re-fills :)

I might get one. They look better built. I might start shooting it more then.
