I started my daughter at 5 years old, but that's when I started dating he mother. I didn't start her with a BB/Pellet gun, I took her down to Sportsmans Warehouse and let her pick out her pink laminated Cricket rifle.
Needless to say he'd bio dad wasn't happy, but I taught her anyway. She...
I have a small shank 26" Varmint contour 1:7.5 twist Bartline barrel chambered in 6.5 Grendel, with PT&G complete bolt head. I'm guessing it's chrome moly with a matte black finish. It measures .890" at the muzzle, and it is not threaded at the muzzle.

I'm all in agreement with needing 1800 fps for most bullets to expand properly at impact. I've been killing things for far too long to ever think 1100 ft-lbs of energy should ever be a rule. IME rarely does 1800/1100 ever line up at the range of the game I'm shooting happens to be standing at
