Wow,
        This .72 makes my Haley .58 look a good bit smaller now. Bob V had Dan McVey build him one Monster .72 Caliber Big Bore.
        Now thats a Larger Caliber Big Bore Air Rifle. You can see pictures of the .72 on XP-Airguns Facebook Page.

Two good men and a excellet rifle for sure . He has already taken a cow elk . But something that needs to be considered is once you go beyond 45 caliber the use of the rifle is some what limited if you are hunting for meat . Take a good look at some of the game as it is butchered and you will see all the blood shot and damaged meat . Would not leave much for dinner on a deer size animal IMO . Marvin

Marvin,

I agree. But man, is that a CANNON or what. Personally, I would not have use for anything over a .45,
(Unless I was Punkin Huntin') :)
Just goes to show how far this sport/hobby has excelled.

If you're hunting for meat, you can always skip the mount and go for the head shot! ;)

I disagree.  These uber-powerful, large-caliber airguns are perhaps the ultimate short-range meat guns.

From what I understand, true "bloodshot" meat is a result of high-velocity.....way more velocity than is generated by our airguns.

I don't think meat loss is a concern with bigbore airguns at all.  What many here are calling "bloodshot", just looks like bleeding to me.  There will be a whole lot of impressive-looking bleeding when your POA is the liver (not the best place to shoot them).......it's just a big bag of blood after all.

Early on when I first started shooting critters with airguns, I thought the ram I had shot with my 909 dislayed "bloodshot" meat, but then Veral Smith of LBT set me straight and informed me that the large patch of bloody area was likely a result of the downed animal having laid on that side for a bit........not from any sort of "bloodshot".

Cast boolits at moderate velocities have long held the reputation for producing large permanent crush/wound cavities thru meat that enable you to "eat right up to the hole".  They are a classic meat-hunters gun.  The .45-70 is famous for this type of wounding ability.

It's not so much the caliber as the hollow point that will contribute to meat loss. As a kid, I hunted squirrels with a .22 rimfire quite a bit. One day, I decided to use hollow points. Big mistake (unless you do a head shot every time). With a body shot, there wasn't much meat left. After that, I went back to non hollow points which just resulted in a small hole, through and through.

For everyones information I shot the Elk behind the shoulder, through the rib, took out the lung, broke out the exit side rib and the bullet was pushing through the skin on the opposite side. I know better than to ruin a shoulder and to fight bone. I am a meat hunter and now have a full freezer of Steaks, Sausage and Burger. So at the most I lost two ribs worth of meat, whats that in the big picture a white castle slider??

gracious, that is a cannon!!  36" barrel!  That's a nice looking gun. I like the stock on it.

BTW, sometimes when I shoot squirrels with my Condors, some of the meat is "bloodshot".  Possibly because of the 1,000+fps velocity, but that's the reason I mostly take head shots.
