ruger impact question
« on: January 13, 2018, 04:02:50 AM »
I am looking at a new .22 air rifle. Still trying to narrow down my choice. For those that have the ruger impact in .22, how is the power? What kind of fps are you getting. The Yukon is also a possibility, but I'm not real sure there is a big difference between the two.

Here is a write up I did some time back on my Ruger Impact .22 cal. It took a while to break in and settle down both in accuracy and FPS/FPE consistency, not too mention particular hold it likes, but now it's really dialed in and I like it a lot.

Here's some chrony data I did after the write up so I knew where it stood with different ammo.  As always YMMV, but it gives you some data to go by.
