nmI have the Hercules in .357, and it's absolutely phenomenal. Rick in Florida on Ebay casts and sells some 97 grain heavy pellets (as opposed to JSB 81 grain) and they are hands down the most accurate ammo I have found for this rifle. The JSB is good! But....the 97's are perfect. 81 grain does high vel. of 897-903 for 142 fpe. That's about the ad rating. But, it cycles 105 grain flat point slugs that the same guy aforementioned casts, and they produced 817 fps for 168 FPE!!! The 82 grain hollow points he has are an accurate ammo as well, and are great for hunting. I've taken down 6 crows in the first month owning it.
The weight deserves a mention, and i remember a time looking at big bores when I totally overlooked this rifle for that reason. However, you really don't notice it after a while, and I do believe that it contributes to the accuracy by absorbing recoil and barrel rise when fired.

I DO NOT know how they offer this rifle in .25, much less .22!!! You'd have to shoot slugs to stay under the sound barrier. I've heard the .30 does over 1,000 FPS. Hatsan is good for their velocity claims with real, down to earth lead pellets.

I also own a Yong Heng compressor that cost me $355 on Amazon and has auto-stop. Fills it in 3 minutes after 20 shots. Believe me, you will need it. The gauge goes to red at a claimed 250 BAR, but I've found that filling it to the middle of the narrow red zone on the gauge gives me two magazines at full velocity with only a 10 FPS spread (887-897 with 81-grain JSB's) That's (18) FULL POWER shots in .357/9mm!!! That is quite a task! The dual bottles work together to balance the air delivery and really, this is an ingenious piece of equipment. One other thing I've noticed is that once you zero it, it "holds" zero better than any airgun I've ever owned, barring maybe my .2nd generation 22 Marauder. I know I can pick it up, and it will hit anything I want, anytime!!
Best UsesThis can be for hunting, provided you've got physical strength and endurance. it is around 15-16 lbs with my Mueller 8-32x 44mm scope on it. I have a sling, and it does not trouble me. I'm 47, in construction, and lift. It is a possible benchrest contender, due to its weight and accuracy. It performs long range as well, due to its sensational power and accuracy. Killer pest control rifle, because accuracy is suited for the smallest game, unlike some big bores.

Hatsan Does It Again!
August 25, 2016
Well, it seems that just when I think Hatsan couldn't (and wouldn't) possibly put out a heavier air gun, sure enough, they do - and they call it a hunting gun, too! This gun is a hunting gun like my aunt Polly had the change and became my uncle Joe! Since it comes with no sights, you will have to mount a scope, and because it is so heavy (13 pounds, out of the box) you will need to mount a bipod, too! That will easily bring the total weight of this Monster to well over 15 pounds! It won't be an offhand shooter that you will find comfortable. It comes in six different hard hitting calibers, which will certainly qualify it as a gun powerful enough for hunting, but those who will find it easy to field carry will be few in number and far between! No, this gun will not be your first choice as a hunting weapon, but might find a home as a long range bench rest gun with few others that will equal it's potential performance for excessive distances. In lesser calibers, after finding the right heavy pellets for your particular choice of gun (to tame the high velocity that the lower calibers can be expected to present), the .177 cal., the ,22 cal., the ,25 cal., and maybe the .30 cal., pellets will most probably group very well and continue to hit hard at distances equal to, or greater than 100 yards! I think the .357 cal., and the .45 cal. will be too expensive, and not as accurate as the lesser calibers, thus, unless you have a way to hunt comfortably using those larger calibers, you might stay away from those versions. I wonder, too, why Hatsan recently put out the Gladius, a ligher weight, better balanced, high performance gun with extra features and a power wheel, but left out the power wheel on the Hercules, while charging more money for the Hercules, with the only betterment that I see being the larger air containment? No doubt there will be those who will disagree with this review, but I just received my own Hercules yesterday, in .25 caliber, and have not yet shot it. A cursory review, and some you tube videos are what I base my opinions on. In any case, when outfitted, this gun is the heaviest gun of any kind that I have ever owned, and I have owned many hundreds of guns over the last 65 years
ProsAccurate; hard hitting; large air reservoir; multiple choice of calibers.
ConsExcessively heavy! Not particularly adapted for marketed usage (as a hunting gun). Although it does have the power to be one, the weight of the gun takes away the probability that you will find it pleasurable to shoot it as a hunting weapon. Cost is high in respect to the standard Hatsan usual price point and market. This gun is already being marketed by some sellers with a package of extras that takes some of the edge off the base pricing of the gun alone that waivers right around $1,300.00.

Got it on .22. Heavy but well balanced. Plenty of shots oer fill. Very quiet. Needs heavy pellets (18gr and over) to get the best out of it. Love this gun. Way too powerful and accurate.
ProsPower, accuracy, shots per fill
