.22 calibre is better than .177 - and that's now official!
The verdict comes from the votes cast by readers of my blog over the past few months - with almost 1 in 2 of airgunners saying they favoured the bigger bore size.
However, .177's still popular with more than 1 in 3 airgunners, showing that the dominance of the larger calibre is coming under threat. My bet would be that if this poll was run 10 years ago on a UK blog, the .22 would have won a landslide victory.
1st - .22 with 48% of the vote
2nd - .177 with 35% of the vote
3rd - .20 with 16% of the vote
4th - .25 with 1% of the vote
