This question is very recurring in the world of small game since the 0.177 caliber is widely used by both novice hunters and professional hunters who use this type of rifle because of the extreme speed it can achieve at short distances and with the right pellet.
In general, the distance at which a .177 caliber air rifle shoots a pellet depends on:
- The rifle type
- The velocity at which the pellet is fired with the chosen rifle.
- The angle at which the pellet fires.
- The direction of the shot is with or against the wind.
In addition, the weight and shape of the pellet must also be considered, as this will affect the distance it travels.
We have previously talked about the types of pellets, so we recommend you go to our articles on pellets so that you have a better theoretical framework about them, since ballistics in reference to pellets is a very important point.
On average, a .177 air rifle has a range of about 400 yards or 366 meters, but there is always a catch…
In this case, the but is positive since depending on the model to be chosen, the effective distance to be traveled can be much greater, and in fact it is so in the models that we have previously analyzed in our portal.
