They hit harder but not as accurate on longer distance shots.

I used to use bisly pest control for rats and different stuff like that when I was young......nowadays I just stick to whatever the gun likes best for everything

Hi Ray.
You might have a accuracy problem with fac power and flat head pellets ??? .
I have a rapid doing 32 ft lb and it doesn't like some of the lighter pellets (not accurate)
My ratting gun is a FX verminator running at 13 ft lb, over the years ive tried all sort's of pellets on rats, they all kill, but IMO some do it better than others, i dont like flat heads because they loose speed fast, and IMO they dont kill any better.
My choice is RWS hollowpoints, these's are accurate and kill the best, but if your fac is around 30 ft lb you might have to use a domed headed pellet, or a heavier hollowpoint.

For pest control I needed help https://youdo.com/india/mumbai-services/pest-control-services/. Because of mosquitoes and bedbugs simply awful. My wife and I hate insects. In addition, the pest is very prevented to live.

Another vote here for RWS H Points for rats. I have not put them through an FAC air rifle but at 12ft lbs, they deffo do the job better than anything else out there and I shot thousands of the things years back on a mates fathers pig farm that had a monster rat problem. Not as accurate as Air Arm Diabolos but at ranges under 30yrds, they were accurate enough.
