Volume 2 of the Winter Pest Control series starts off right where we left off in Volume 1... Squirrels! The abundance of these tree rats requires some population control efforts. The winter season will mostly keep these guys up high, but on nice days they will come down for some food. The feeder is an obvious hotspot as other food sources are scarce.
All the EDgun's got in on the action... even the "dispatcher", the EDgun Veles made an appearance. I've adjusted the tunes after more and more Raccoons are showing up. I've got the Leshiy in Sub 12ft/lb shooting .177 H&N Snipers. This is my rat machine, and gets in on some squirrels as well. Stay tuned for some in depth articles on this guy. I'm waiting for a few things to arrive, but will be going into detail about an alternative to Phil's "super tune" to fit a wide range of pest control needs all with the ultimate airgun... the EDgun Leshiy (and no cutting like "Silent Overkill").
The EDgun Leyla is setup shooting 34gr JSB MK2's at about 26ft/lbs. I'm getting about 60 shots from a 250bar fill. This guy gets in on all the action as it's the newest to the family... I tuned it up a bit to ensure a clean kill on some of these super tough Possums causing some issues with my dog. It's possum season, so thinning of the heard is a must.
Finally the EDgun Matador R5M Standard in .25 as well. I have this tuned to just under 700 ft/sec, or 35 ft/lbs with the JSB 34gr MK2's. I've actually never looked, but I think I get 70+ shots from a 250bar fill. I typically bring this guy out for the Raccoons. The ATN Quick Release mount allows me to swap this scope between all 3 in less than 60 seconds... inclusive of changing the profile within the ATN X Sight 4K Pro. You can see links for more information on it below the video.
Thanks again for watching, commenting, and of course subscribing... this is just a fun little side project, so your encouragement means a lot.
