1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I've three rim fires in my collection all .22 and I really don't need them all. So the Volquarsten semi auto is the least used and I've been building myself up to move it on to another owner to enjoy. The new rifle is mainly for corvids out in the field and I have no wish to turn them inside out with a 17 HMR as I wish to practic my taxidermy with them.

    So I was toying with the idea of a Hornady .17 Mach 2, more range than a conventional .22 RF and flatter with a small bullet. I've only ever seen a round and it looks sweet. But i don't know anyone who has one or uses one.

    Has any AGF members used, own or any knowlage of this RF round or rifles chambered for it. Any info would be much appreciate.

    not shot one personally,but know of several members of another forum that own them.
    they swear by them.
    cheaper to run than a HMR,less power,less tissue damage,but less range.
    I will stick to my HMR,which I don`t consider "expensive" to feed when compared to the varied options it gives when in the field.

    I've not seen the ammo sold, is it easily available?

    I reckon you'd be better off using a shottie from a hide. Less damage possibly?

    Thought you was a hunter, surely you can get closer than a 100 yards.

    Correct I am a hunter with a couple of problems. I don't want a shot gun never liked them. The crows sit way out in the field and the only place I can only ambush them is from the buildings at distance as there is a 10 foot fences all the way round the fields and farm. Access is difficult to make any sort of hide in the hedges. Plus the fences stop you being able to use any of the natural cover to get near any trees it sit under.

    Ok I'm idle and just want a new gun!
