I recently got my first PCP air rifle, A Huben K1 and so far im very happy with it. At present settings it shoots the JSB 25.39 monsters at 950fps (about 50 ft.lbs)
The problem is that it shoots straight through everything i have. I had a 25mm pine board which was fine to put 4x A4 targets on and stop my HW50s pellets(only a perfect 5-group would start cracking the board on the other side)
So, since I had no idea how hard the new PCP would shoot I put down the pine board with targets on and another 4x 6mm hardboard behind it followed by a bag of garden fertilizer and behind that a wheelbarrow.... Why is my wheelbarrow now full of holes! If you put 2 or 3 pellets on the same place there will be a new hole in my wheelbarrow each time. I'm both very impressed and also very dissapointed(LOL). I'm only shooting at 15m for now as this was the range i would plink with my little springer. I calculated that at the 15m target the Huben still hits at 45 ft.lbs in this setting.(900ft/s shot through chrony)
So the question, What do you guys use as pellet stops with these powerful PCP guns? Also, is there a way to catch the lead for use later on(casting slugs or making fishing sinkers)... the huben is so quick at dispatching JSB monsters that I feel it a waste not to capture the lead somehow so how do you do it?
