We’ve all heard this term, and have seen guns listed with this kind of power, but at what fps/fpe does a gun become “Magnum?” I can’t say I’ve ever really seen stats, or a chart that specifically states this, it seems kind of blurry.
Depends on if you’re talking springers or PCP. Springers are considered magnums when the power starts getting into the 20 fpe or above range, I believe. Don’t know that I’ve really heard it applied to PCP’s, by their nature, even a relatively low powered PCP is a magnum compared to a springer. My TSS with 18″ .177 barrel can easily do 20 fpe, and with the 24″ 22. barrel, can top 40 with stock valve, and can do OMG! with my Blodnob valve :-). Later.
