30 fpe will take everything racoon size and down. 22fpe might also.depends on range and caliber also.and placement of the shot.

To me it means basically Rabbit, Squirrel, all types of fowl like Dove, Quail and even Wild Turkey.

I have never used anything more than 13FPE for what I consider small game and that has been more than adequate out to 50+ yards.

They've been doing fine with 12 fpe guns in the UK for a long time. But, there is no small game that you couldn't anchor out to 75 yards with a 30 fpe gun

A 14ft/lb springer will humanely take any of those out to fifty yards or farther with proper shot placement.. Good hunting

there was a post about the new steyr hunter 5 the gun reach 30 fpe energy and some people said that it should not be called hunter because it only does 30fpe, but in my opinion thats plenty energy for hunting most small game not all but most of them. They also said that a gun in this class (steyr , very expensive ) should do more power to be called hunter.
