    2015 SHOT Show: Crosman Benjamin Bulldog .357 air rifle

    From Crosman comes the new Benjamin Bulldog air rifle.
    (Benjamin, Crosman, and Sheridan once used to be separate, competing companies. Benjamin and Sheridan combined, then were bought by Crosman.)
    The Bulldog is no ordinary springer BB gun.
    It is a Pre-Charged Pneumatic in .357 cal !
    PCP airguns are coming on strong, due to their increased power and no need to manually pump up.

    The Bulldog is of bullpup layout, which shortens the overall length considerably.
    It uses a five round rotary magazine.
    They do not refer to the projectile as a pellet, but as an air rifle bullet.
    The bullets are made by none other than Nosler.
    The Benjamin By Nosler eXTREME ballistic tip weighs 145 grains.
    At 800 fps, it generates 200 fpe and is claimed to be suitable for deer and wild hogs!

    I had a chance to fire it briefly at Media Day, and was able to consistently whack a small steel plate at 50 Yards.
    Then I went to work smashing clay pigeons at a similar distance. Great fun!

    Camo version. Please forgive the harsh shadows from the screaming bright Nevada sun.

    The shape reminds me of the HK G11 and to a lesser degree, the CAWs

    Doesn't say it's a shrouded barrel so it should be good to go here.

    I was reading up and there's some kind of baffle noise reducer built in, so not sure if that makes it a no go up here or not.

    That would be so cool if it is quiet and its a 50 yard coyote/deer rifle.

    Any pics of those bullets?

    That is one honking scope for a 50 yard gun.

    Anyone know the weight?

    Well, who's going to be brining them in? I want one.
