If you need a lot of power to dispatch some pests and smallbore air guns just aren't doing it, bring out the big guns! Hatsan's Big Bore Carnivore QE air rifle delivers pounding power without bragging about it. Here's what we mean by that: This air rifle has an integral silencer that reduces the report by about 50%. Another way the Carnivore is different from most other big bores is that it's a repeater. You don't get just one shot and then have to reload. Quickly work the bolt, and another shot lines up. Foot-pounds will vary by the grain weight of your projectile. However, Hatsan has stated you should get about 75 ft-lbs. of energy with the .30-caliber gun and 95 ft-lbs. with the .357-caliber gun. That gives you a good amount of power to take animals at longer distances or some larger critters at closer distances.

I’d prefer to shoot slugs but don’t know if the barrel is choked on the .30. Thanks

Pros
Accurate powerful

Cons
A little long

This is the one rifle (.357) I’ve bought manufactured by Hatsan (I’ve had 4 others with no issues) that has lived up to the negative comments I commonly see about Hatsan products. The magazines jam up fairly consistently no matter what I use, JSB’s, Grizzlies, or Air Venturi. The hammer would jam as well. It did shoot close to the advertised velocity so I wanted to work on it myself. Tear down showed metal shavings throughout the internals, burrs, and not a single o-ring that wasn’t nicked. Whatever Hatsan uses for “grease” is more like a sludge paste. I cleaned everything up, deburred sharp edges, and replaced all o-rings, as well as regreasing everything with a quality grease. While I had it apart made some changes and can now get 81.02 gr. JSB pellets to travel over 825 fps. I’m not sure why Hatsan would build a .357 that sacrifices power for a higher shot count. Based on cost of ammo I’m not going out to target shoot or plink with this rifle. It should have more power stock, it is there to be gotten if you know how to modify it. Hammer spring is easily adjusted and can give more power just from turning that screw in. I do appreciate the extras: sling, de-gassing tool, extra valve and probe o-rings, fill probe. All the multiple points of adjustment are a nice feature also.

Pros
Relatively light, extras that come with rifle, can adjust to fit the likings of most any shooter. Priced nicely.

Cons
Poor QC. Magazines jam way too much. With longer ammo not fitting magazines, a single load tray would be nice.

When we buy guns it's not just the performance of the gun but, supposedly, the company reputation behind it. My BT65 Carnivore is incredible but BE AWARE that Hatsan's service is recognized as some of the WORST by the biggest dealers out there. Know what you're getting into & if the company you're dealing with stands behind their product! I'll be VERY surprised if A.G. Depot posts this!

Pros
Accurate,powerful & consistent

Cons
Customer no-service!

Put 6 mags worth of shots thru the carnivore. JSB 81g are impacting on top of each other at 25 yards. I have not set up targets further out yet. I do not have a chrony, however I put 4 mags (24 shots) on a full 200 bar fill. After 24 shots reservoir reads 100 bar. All 24 shots in one hole. No point of impact drop at 24 shots. Rifle appears to be of good quality. I really dont think the bolt is as stiff as majority of reviews here. It is pretty smooth. Have to be sure to pull back all the way before sending the bolt home. Sound on mobile app db meter is 77db at the muzzle. In comparison gammo bone colector .177 reads 77db and Hatsan breakbarrel carnivore .30 cal reads 80 db. I am filling with MK4 Hill handpump. 100 bar to 200 bar takes 135 pumps. I stop pumping at half point to allow pump to cool as it does generate heat. I definitely recommend! I would like to try out other loads but it seems general consensus is jsb's for this rifle.

Pros
Power High Shot Count Accurate Quiet

Cons
Lacks ability to shoot heavier loads due to magazine thickness.

I've had my Carnivore .30 cal. for over a year and would recommend it to anyone hunting small to medium sized varmints. Easily shoots under 1 inch groups at 50 yds. with the JSB 44.7 gr. pellets & is capable of reaching out to 100 yds. The QE shroud cuts the muzzle report down a lot. Not quite backyard friendly but definitely very quiet for the power it puts out. I have been successful at hunting groundhogs with accurately placed shots from 35 to 80 yards so far.

Pros
Accurate, powerful, built like a tank! Great value!

Cons
A little on the heavy side once you get a scope and bipod mounted.

Hard hitting, good penetration within 75 yards. Can't vouch for anything longer. I don't attempt any kills beyond 75 yards. It is not quiet. It won't disturb the neighborhood but it might disturb the neighbors.

Cons
It would help greatly if the ammo options that fit in the magazine were listed on the web site. I don't like surprises. I have used the 44.75 grain pellets. I prefer the heaviest pellet available that will fit in the magazine. I intend to try the 50.15 grain pellets but i don't like buying a pig in a poke.

nice looking stock and metal finish. This is my first experience with a large caliber rifle. It loads easily and seems to be a straight shooter. I have not had a chance for extensive testing, but I am very happy up to now. I do feel that a second or third magazine should be carried, six rounds gets empty quickly

The Hatsan BT Big Bore Carnivore QE .35 caliber is a heavy air rifle. The Hatsan .35 caliber Air Rifle including the Optima 3-12x50 AO Rifle Scope, the Hatsan Optima Universal Tactical Bipod and the Hatsan Air Rifle Sling weigh in at around 11.4 pounds. This Air Rifle is probably best suited for shooting from a fixed position. Was able to zero the scope in three shots. The accuracy is unbelievably awesome, and the power is second to none. It does take a lot of effort to cock, but seems to be getting easier now after 100 shots. Has a tendency to jam occasionally where the pellet fails to load correctly. You then have to remove the magazine and push the pellet in more and re-cock to shoot. Hopefully this will improve with use and being more familiar with the air rifle. Also, I would suggest that there needs to some R&D effort by the manufacturer to improve the magazine’s ability to load pellets consistently. Overall, I rate this to be a great Air Rifle and would recommend it to anyone who wants a fantastic small game hunting and all around fun air rifle.
