HW90 power level?

Just recently bought an HW 90 in .25 and I guess Im kind of disappointed in the power of it out of the box. Shot 5 silver arrow pellets into a soft pine 1x6 and it only buried the pellets just a little ways past the skirt. My RWS 34 in .177 will go clear though it and my Beeman Kodiak in .22 will go clear through a pine door that's 1 1/8 thick. Should this 25 caliber do better than it does?

I have no direct experience with an HW90, but it is not the highest-powered rifle out there by any means (around 23fpe). In .25 caliber it claims about 625fps. In .177 around that would be around 1100fps (these numbers are likely exaggerated for marketing)- still the same energy, but now you have a larger pellet spreading its energy over a wider area. Skirt deep is probably not too bad.

I would suggest using the rifle for awhile and break it in a bit before deciding if it will suit your purpose (there is a purpose beyond shooting pellets through wood I would assume- i.e. for a .25 cal some sort of hunting?).


I'd say "I care."

But I'd be lying.
