The following is a press release from AirForce Airguns

AirForce Airguns’ Texan Air Rifle – the world’s most powerful production air rifle – is expanding to add .308 and .357 calibers. Together with the original .45 Texan, these three rifles cover the most popular of the big bore airgun calibers.

The new Texans are shooting in excess of 350 foot pounds of energy in .357 and are approaching 300 foot pounds in .308.

“As soon as we introduced the Texan in .45 last year, our Airgun Believers were suggesting other calibers,” noted AirForce CEO and Founder John McCaslin. “Well, we listened and these are the two most requested. Components are optimized for the caliber to get the best results. We’re proud to call them Texan.”

The AirForce Texan set a new high bar for pre-charged pneumatic air rifles when introduced at the 2015 SHOT Show with energy levels of 500 foot pounds and the ability to take down a whitetail with a single shot from its .457 barrel. The Texan has elevated the art of airgun hunting to large game and rivals most hunting rifles in accuracy and many in power.

“Every gun we produce is designed for optimum performance. These two new calibers are no different,” remarked McCaslin. “We are regular hunters and shooters just like our customers, and we like things that work like they are supposed to. These air rifles do just that.”
