    Yeah, but changing barrels isn’t all that cheap, now we are looking to had about 300 bucks between barrel and fitting,…the gun start to become awfully expensive.

    True. Why not buy one of the Korean PowerPups and be done with it.

    Exactly, at that point 600 buck will get you a .357 Recluse 500cc

    lightweight, short, dual power, shoots everything well, can be tuned to 200+ “REAL” FPE

    I think the BullDog is a good idea, but if you’re handcuffed to shoot only the Heavy ammo, …that’s gonna hurt.

    I will say this I want to love this gun I just like the concept (compact, light and plenty of picattiny/weaver rail space, etc….) but, I dont think its a $1000 gun. It is maybe…maybe a $700’ish gun. The stock alone is “cheap plastic” and I am pretty sure you can’t even take the stock off without Voiding your warranty on the gun (correct me if I am wrong about void warranty). To top it off its not easy finding ammo with out going with over priced $0.80 per shot “Benjamin eXSTREME Bullet by Nosler”

    Good points! Crosman simply can’t seem to get it right. There are better, proven guns for less money.

    Nomadic Pirate is the best source for info on large caliber bull pups. Check his posts out on the Yellow and here.

    Those number make no sence…. pellet skirt must not be forming to the barrel. (should be closer to 1000 FPS)

    The dust cover or as Crossman calls it “Fill Nipple Cover” is very week and over time will break.

    or if you are me it broke when I first took it off. lol

    Deep breath!!… It has/had (??) such potential to be a great hunting rifle..

    I got those velocities with JSBs when my Evanix was a 180 fpe gun. 180 fpe was achieved with 134 grain bullets. It looks like the Bulldog is not as powerful as advertised. Maybe I should get some of those heavy noslers and see if I can hit 220 fpe mark with my Evanix 😆

    If you put a 28″ barrel on that Blizzard I’m sure the numbers will be just as good as the Bulldog ones

    I have actually 29.5″ barrel on order which should put me in the 230 fpe mark with 109 grainers but that’s making those bullets to fly a bit too fast I believe. With heavy slugs that should be 240+ fpe. If Crosman makes only 200 fpe with 28″ barrel and heavy slugs they haven’t used all the potential they have.

    Where are you with your testing ?

    Did you buy this gun or did they send it to you ?
