General Comments
The BSA Lightning is a good and accurate rifle, however I have had some problems with achieving one-shot kills on rabbits and pheasant. It seems that with some pellets it will only injure them if hit just below the head. Very good for longer range shots, though, and with the right pellets can be very effective for small game hunting.



Use a 3-12X optical scope and you can kill at 30 metres easy.

Depends on what your hunting. RWS superdomes are good for all round accuracy. If your hunting pheasant or birds you might want to use a pointed pellet, or any other pellet designed for maximum penetration, as the feathers act like a kevlar vest! You can get a hunting pellet that is a hollowpoint, thus causes maximum damage, yet has a synthetic plastic pointed tip for maximum penetration. I haven't yet tried these but I am gonna pick some up in the next few weeks and I have heard good reviews.
