This is not your grandpa’s air rifle (VIDEO)

Eric and the IV8888 gang pulls out his .457 caliber AirForce Texan big bore air rifle to sling 350-grain pills downrange to see how far its effective range can be.

Using a 3/4-inch pine baffle board which served the military as ballistics gel before ballistics gel was around, Eric uses what is billed as the  world’s most powerful production air rifle to put some splinters out there.

100 yards? 200 yards? 300? 440? This isn’t a Red Ryder here.
