    For shooting through pre-cast walls, I normally use the 300WM.

    What do you intend using a vibrocrete penetrating pellet for or what necessitated your need for it?
    Maybe we can offer alternative solutions?

    Short answer yes.... there are large caliber air powered rifles that have been used to successfully hunt animals like buffalo. I'm sure such a rifle could penetrate pre-cast fencing (vibracrete).

    I'm less sure that the popular 4.5mm to 5.5mm air rifles that don't require licensing in SA would reliably penetrate such a wall with the 1st shot.
    A succession of shots would eventually drill through

    Maybe just need confirmation that practicing with the vibracrete fence as a backstop will not cause trouble with the neighbours due to flying pellets in their garden???
