The Air Rifle can be shot over great distances. Tests have shown shots rabbits over 95m. Thus, you should be fine with sniping rabbits at a pretty decent distance.
The effective range however is more like 50m. Below 50m Cottontail Rabbits are guarantied to die from body shots. You can kill them at longer distances, but only if you hit the head or neck. This is only intended for experienced players and thus not something recommended to everyone.
The effective range is the range at where you get a guaranteed kill unless you hit something like the legs, ears or tail. Rabbits may run a bit if hit in the body but they'll eventually die.
