I like that one, didn't know that made it.
Whole lot more air gun than my 50 plus year old Sheridan Blue Streak.

Do they require special optics? Is a good air gun scope $$? I know they're crazy accurate and quiet and they ain't lacking in knockdown power.

The gentleman up at Kesselrings is pretty knowledgeable. I may go take a look come January.

Negative. Springers need stout optics, but pre-charged pneumatics can use any old scope.

They ran afoul of the law back around 2013, so did they get things sorted out to be able to sell firearms again?

No firearms. Reloading, optics ammo and high end air guns

That particular scope is a CenterPoint 4-16x56 side focus.

Probably a bit of overkill on the scope, but I think the side focus works out better if you shoot closer ranges on day, and longer the next. It helps eliminate parallax issues.

Recoil is very light. Not like a springer gun.

Where can one find 145gr .357" Ballistic Tips? Thinking they might work out of a 357 Mag rifle.

Airguns have shallower rifling cuts in the barrel to seal off blow-by. The lead projectiles are generally made of softer lead than hardcast bullets used in firearms.

Maybe with a gas check?

Nosler or Crosman has them.

Didn't know such a thing existed. Cool! Doesn't look like it'll work for my needs. Thanks for the info.
