PCP Air rifles are extremely powerful, on par with 22lr. While most are in the 950 fps family, many are considerably faster than standard 22lr velocity. Hatsan makes a few 22s that exceed 1400fps.
Side note: Lewis and Clark brought a 46 caliber PCP rifle along on their expedition across the continent.
