I am considering getting a little springer specifically for hunting rabbits. I know very little about air rifles - they aren't nearly as common down here as in the UK, especially for hunting applications, so i can really use the advice of folks here who regularly hunt rabbits with an airgun.
As i will be hunting rabbits, i figure power is going to be paramount. I am thinking i will be best off with a .22 cal, but i would be willing to listen to arguments for smaller calibres. I was figuring on a springer to keep price down, because i would be very happy with a single shot, and because i would like the extra power possible with a springer (althpough i notice some of the PCP guns are very powerful now). I am thinking a quality underlever is probably the way to go, the RWS 460 magnum having caught my attention.
I would also appreciate recommendations on hunting pellets.
