I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Ok just read the new rules. I think I will need to get a new mold. I can make 215 with my 135gr bullets but I think I can do better if I go with the 154gr bullets.

Air Guns and Arrow Guns
Definitions:

Arrow gun: a device that fires an arrow or bolt solely by the use of unignited compressed gas as the propellant.
Air gun: a device that fires a bullet solely by the use of unignited compressed gas as the propellant.
Pre-charged pneumatic: an air gun or arrow gun for which the propellant is supplied or introduced by means of a source that is physically separate from the air gun or arrow gun.
Alligator, game animals, furbearers, squirrels, and non-migratory game birds (except Eastern Turkey) may be hunted with air guns and arrow guns provided:

Alligators, big horn sheep, javelina, mule deer, white-tailed deer, pronghorn, and turkey may be taken only with pre-charged pneumatic arrow guns, or pre-charged pneumatic air guns.
Pre-charged pneumatic air guns must fire a projectile of at least 30 caliber in diameter and at least 150 grains in weight with a minimum muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second or any combination of bullet weight and muzzle velocity that produces muzzle energy of at least 215 foot pounds of energy.
Squirrels, pheasant, quail, and chachalaca may be hunted with air guns that fire a projectile of at least .177 caliber (4.5mm) in diameter producing a muzzle velocity of at least 600 feet per second.
Arrows or bolts used with an arrow gun must conform to the same standards for projectiles for archery.
Arrow guns may not be used to hunt deer or turkey during archery season.
