It's a 1400fps break barrel with lead free pellets.

These would be good first choices 😉

The above pellet suggestions are solid.
The best pellet speed is normally between 850-910 FPS (even slower is fine as long as they are accurate and have the FPE for a kill shot), depending on the gun/barrel. Pellets are not generally streamlined and not made for speed with most of the weight up front, so slower speed is the rule with pellets.

I have a .22 PCP Air Rifle that shoots the Daisy PrecisionMax Hollow Point Pellets very accurately. They are made from a soft lead alloy and have a huge HP cup so they expand well and are devastating on Ground Squirrels. They make them in .177 too so maybe give them a try.

I dont think the state of CA allows the take of non game NATIVE birds like crows and ravens specifically. I have never heard of a "local" hunting reg, ie a town or county ordinance that supersedes the State regulations. Can someone that knows clarify this and the status of Corvids as pests to shot and killed ?

- thanks

I just saw there was a season and restricted areas listed on the dfw site. So I didn't want to advise anyone on a public forum to break any laws. Always check your local regs as they might be more restricted than the state.
