Hatsan Hercules QE (Quiet Energy) air rifle
Recommended Pellets for .45 caliber are 166 & 176 grain. Heavier pellets may not fit in magazine.
The Hatsan Hercules QE air rifle is a stealthy powerhouse of PCP kinetic energy. The high shot count allows for a long day of target shooting, and enough powerful follow-up shots to take care of whatever you're hunting.
The QE technology incorporates a fully shrouded barrel with an integrated sound moderator that cuts shot noise by approximately 32%. That means all your shots will be even more enjoyable. The ergonomic, tactical stock is constructed from an all-weather advanced polymer and stands up to harsh conditions in the field.
Add a sling and you're ready for your choice of the range or a great day of hunting.
The Hercules incorporates two 500cc air cylinders resulting in the shockingly high shot count. One cylinder rests in the forearm while the other resides in the buttstock.
Tech Tip: Due to the Hercules's 1000cc capacity, handpumps are not recommended. We only recommend this gun for shooters with the ability to refill the airgun with a high pressure tank.
|Max Velocity||1230 fps|
|Muzzle Energy||49 ft/lbs|
|Max Shots per Fill||65|
|Cylinder Size||1000 cc|

Things I liked: Mine is .357/9mm (refurbished, $721) Everything, lol. (I have a compressor, fills it in 3-4 minutes, lol) large clip, same amount of rounds as my bt65 .25 cal. (9 rounds) it shoots almost as flat as my bt65 in .25 and it laughs at the wind. It isn't really a slug shooter if you're thinking of it, though Hunterone (you tube) has some 82 grain hollowpoints that are on point with it. I just received an order of the heavy 97.5 grain pellets off eBay, and I was ASTOUNDED! They are more accurate even than the JSB 81 grain! Most of us know that is a tremendous victory. I'll send pics of 51 yard groups shooting with just a bipod and my shoulder on a wire table with an umbrella that shakes the whole thing. Lol. Today I shot 3 crows (Raleigh, nc) on my job. I've used a 22 lr, and had many get hit and fly off. This baby....nope! Strait vertical fall, dead before leaving the limb they were on, haha. It holds a liter of air, and I get two mags before the sound changes, and 35 shots, no prob. :-)
Things I would have changed: Don't really know, reduce weight if possible, but; im positive the weight contributes to the accuracy because of recoil absorption. It is more accurate than my bt .25 cal, no kidding! Holds zero, dependable and solid! (Mueller 8-32 x 44mm mil dot) But it holds better zero than anything I've owned. The qe barrel is long. I've considered removing it. Idk I get off on muzzle blast, lol, but the noise isn't good for hunting. It's loud, but not ridiculous. Honestly, it's an ingenious piece of artillery, and I probably wouldn't do much different.
What others should know: Lol. Heavy. With my scope, 15 lbs. Long, hard to get out of the car for a shot fast or easily. Recoil is very light.
Things I liked: Very powerful. Flat shooter without a doubt. .25 caliber had some knockdown power even at 50+ yards it went right through my backstop.
Things I would have changed: Would be nice to be able to adjust the power. While I was sighting it in, the breech seal failed. Hatsan should take a look at that and come up with a solution. Didn't even get one clip through it. Pyramyd Air took care of everything and their customer service is surpassed by no one. They have the best customer service I've ever dealt with.
What others should know: Certainly is a heavy sucker. I didn't mind the weight, it helped me keep it steady while aiming.
Things I liked: Accuracy- power - looks By far my favorite air rifle . I even prefer over my Texan .45 cal . Ya gotta respect the brain child that put this beast on paper then into your hands . This rifle is a blast to shoot .. everybody I know cant keep their hands off it .
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: Shes heavy .. before you buy just know shes a very heavy rifle you may not want to pack around on a long hunt .

I know that most People use Hatsan Vortex Big Bore .45 but I ordered these Air Venturi .45 Cal, 166 Grains, Semiwadcutter, 1) I am not sure these will fit the mag or jam the Barrel? 2) out of the 3 choices of the air Venturi Pellets here can the 180 Grain fit into the mag of the Hercules as they look so much like the 168 Gr Hatsan Vortex Supreme 3) I am also wondering which pellets were used to get the claimed Velocity 850 and FBE of 290 Lbs? Can anyone help me with these 3 questions This is my First Hercules Rifle I ordered in .45 Thank You
Can't be much help with the first 2, but regarding number 3, plugging the numbers into a FPE calculator, a 180 grain slug would get you 290 FPE at 850 fps.
is there a degasser also can this be dry fired?
Do the 166, 180 and 200 Gr AV slugs shown at the bottom of the page fit the magazine? Can anyone share their experience on which pellets fit the .45?
