How does a pellet gun work?
All pellet guns use compressed air or gas. 1. Spring piston: Cocking the barrel of the rifle compresses the spring and piston inside the rifle or gun that is located in an air cylinder. When you pull the trigger it releases the spring and as the spring shoots forward, it pushes compressed air ahead if it that forces the pellet out the barrel. 2. Co2: A Co2 bottle it inserted into the gun or rifle, and it is full of compressed Co2. When you pull the trigger a burst of Co2 gas is released and the gas pushes the pellet out the barrel. This same idea is used for the larger PCP rifles only they use a much higher pressure bottle. 3. Pump: When you pump the forearm of the rifle it stores air in an air chamber. When you pull the trigger all the air is released behind the pellet forcing it out the barrel. BB guns work the same way.

There are some manufactures that make very powerful pelet guns. Some air rifles can be as powerful as a .22 caliber rimfire. So it is possible, however if not killed initially…, infection would be the slow painfull death of the animal. It troubles me as to why you would ask this, if you were a hunter you would already know the answer. Raccoons are amazing creatures. These highly intelegent critters can be a nuisance but generally a good solid garbage can with a lockable lid will end your frustration with them. If that doesn't work contact a nuisance wildlife control officer and have the animal relocated. I wont trap and relocate in the spring as it may be a female nursing young, so keep that in mind and please don't shoot any animal unless your intent is to harvest it for food.
These are excellent pellets for hunting. They expand when they hit the target. It's like the old saying "Small hole going in, Large hole coming out."

It all depends on the bore size, and if you really mean GUN as in "gun or rifle." The larges Pellet bore is 50 caliber and that would be a Air Venturi .50 Cal, 275 Grains, Sol…id Core, Soft Lead, Round Nose pellet. If it's just a pistol it would be a .22 caliber pellet and that would most likely be a Predator Big Boy Senior .22 cal, 28.5 Grains, Domed. Remember air gun/rifle pellets come in all sizes. .177, .20, .22, .25, .9mm, 357mm, .45cal and 50 Cal.
Use a .177 cleaning rod and push the pellet back out of the loading port.
