Hatsan 125 in 25cal.  Stopped by Tractor Supply and picked up a catalog with 353 pages. Had a Sunbelt Rental catalog with 314 pages. 

Set up at 19 yards and fired 6 shots. The first 3 being with the TS catalog alone. After checking and seeing the blowthru, i stuck the Sunbelt behind it. The deepest penetration out of the 3 other shots stopped at page 85. Beyond that were another 16 pages of 2" tears where the impact tore them without pellet penetration into those pages. 

The pellets were still in remarkable shape considering going thru 438 pages. 

I noticed the 3rd shot thru both penetrated further than the second shot, which penetrated further than the first. The gun hasnt been shot much. Im thinking with 10 moreshots maybe another 15 pages deep.

These catalogs were solid against a piece of plywood, so pretty solid objects to shoot thru.  

The exit of each shot was HUGE for a pellet of this size. The picture with my finger sticking thru isnt tight in the hole. That blow thru hole is impressive.

your thought?

  I am not Wrench but if you are shooting squirrels or rabbits be sure not to hit edible meat or that area is going to be pretty tenderized. If you with your accuracy in your other guns have been shooting game you should have some great feasting,

Thanks for that info wrench. So 40 yards POI is what i will do Tue.  Its supposed to be nice and 48 out. I need to shoot more rounds before i sight the scope in but it was shooting 3" high and 3" right with those shots. 

Considering stepping up to a 31 grain pellet for more kenetic energy before sighting scope in. That will knock my speed down a bit but will hit harder. 

Almost pulled the trigger last night on a Hatsen 135 Vortex in 22cal. as im wanting to add the 22 like i mentioned before, but luckily they were out of stock at PA.  They did have a 30 cal. in stock.  🤔

Hey BH,

 My shooting better get a little tighter group or squirrell burger is all that will be left. Can wait to run a tin down the barrel so it gets to its comfort breakin range. Hoping the nice weather the next few days allows that. 

I dont think this 25cal will have an issue dropping one in its tracks. Its a hard hitter
