The Gamo Swarm Magnum .22 cal. is challenging the Hatsan 135 QE Vortex .30 cal for the title of the most powerful breakbarrel.  We show you the math and let the numbers tell if the Hatsan can hold it's title as "The Most Powerful Breakbarrerl."  We test the FPS and FPE of both rifles from the muzzle, at 20 yards, and 40 yards.  Which is the most powerful rifle?  We show you and eliminate any doubt. I hope everyone at GTA is having a great Thanksgiving holiday!!

Great video! I appreciate the effort you went through to get all that data - lots of cocking and shooting, especially with magnum guns like those.

Tom.....That was a heck of a lot of rifle cocking!! Ironically, I just had Rotator cuff  surgery on my left shoulder and I am going to be down for a bit. It had nothing to do with  any rifle cocking. It was an injury I sustained with the departure earlier in the year. I will still try to have my regular video releases.
I appreciate you watch and thank you for the comments.

great video thanks, Im a gamo magnum fan.  I wonder which pellet dropped the most at 40yds even though the .22 lost much more steam, it got there quicker.  Not familiar with the BC on .3 cal.  Try the sniper magnums, my GM love's em.  I also shrink wrapped the barrel for tighter harmonics.

Yes...40 yards is the maximum you would ever want to shoot the .30.  I think 20-30 yards is the optimal range!

Hey John,
 I know I'm a little late on this one. I actually just finished watching the video. Great job. Good thing you're a big guy. I would even go so far as to say that the Hatsan 135in .22 caliber would still beat the Gamo. I have one with a spring in it and it gets right around 30 at the muzzle. I've had it since 2011 and it's still going strong with all the original parts! Great gun. I have nothing against the gamo. Nice gun also. I hear they are very accurate in the magnum configuration. Anyways, thanks for the break-down.
 God Bless,
Mike
