I looked at the Web sight and only found .177 and .22 caliber guns. No 303. Can u put a link up directly to it. Day state are awsome guns but lot of guys don't like the fact that it electronically loads and has technology in it. Scares alot of guys.

not pcp but seriously considering the gamo cfx. in 4.5mm / .177 cal

the .22's though more powerful for things like hunting does not deliver a pellet as fast as a .177 can

sub sonic pellets the rifle is quiet but with pba's its supersonic and sounds like you shooting a .22.. all that new dampening technology don't mean much when pellet is supersonic or travelling faster than the speed of sound

and doubting i will use it for hunting will more likely go for the .177..even so the .177 is more than capable of taking small game like birds,rats etc should i want to.

another reason why the cfx. is the pad in the butt.. there to lessen the recoil and also when firing the gun without the padding the gun can loose its accuracy because of recoil so with the pad it keeps its accuracy longer

the cfx. has a fixed barrel with the cocking system under the barrel so don't have to break the barrel to load a pellet which with many rifles can see accuracy lost..

and that cool looking rotary breech loading system.. looks exactly like the one thika posted.

now just to save up lol

Never been a fan. One hell of a fps punch at 1200fps plus on the lighter pellets but the reverse recoil knocks the scope around if not breaking it off the mounts and the high velocity causes inaccuracy. In my opionen a break neck and upmarket pcp cannot be compared. .22 does have less range but some of newer predator metal mags are amazing over 150m.
