25-30 feet would be as far as I've shot a 10cc dart. The chart shows up to 45 feet for a 10cc but that sure seems like a gamble.
It's primarily calves I've darted with my rifle. It doesn't take much to shoot a 3 or 5cc dart. The heifer I tried to dart a couple evenings ago deflected a 7cc dart. I brought her in and put her in the chute. It was surprising how tough her hide was. No wonder the dart bounced off. You'll be surprised how hard it is to pump the air rifle. 5 pumps and you'll need more wheaties! I've never used more than 5 pumps--mostly cause I'm not sure I could get 6 or 7!

I had to dart one calf--Glory what a great day, Thank You God-anyway, that thing sure pumped easier! Is there something in the directions I missed about oiling the slide or is it just something everybody knows 'cept me??
