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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Are these acceptable or even better for that matter than the exact and heavies for hunting really fancy giving them a try.
    Always thought a lighter pellet was more long-range target work but I am out of the loop and a bit naive with these things

    I like them. Worked well in a few rifles of mine. Worth a try mate
    Hit it in the right area and dont matter what weight of pellet you use.

    Cheers Andy

    If you haven't already, try the JSB Exact RS. They're lighter still, and due to a combination of thin sides and JSB's soft lead mix, they deform nicely on impact.

    Better in my opinion.
    I use express for all my hunting in .177
    Quicker flight time
    Flatter trajectory
    Better energy transfer and less pass through

    Tried them not as accurate as heavies if its breezy, and tend to loose umph after 50yds, but below this at 11.5 they would be great. Only down side is with heavier pellets your gun is likely to be over. To be honest whatever you use there will be a pellet that will send your gun over if you look hard enough, even if you cant hit a barn door with it. some police forces use common sense and test the gun with the pellets you are using but not all.

    I used them a lot for field targets in a rapid. I had a new LW barrel machinesd for that gun and they were really good out to 55 yards.
    My Matador dont like them though. Prefers the slightly heavier AADF.
    Worth a try.

    Cheers Andy

    There was an interesting test done... Might even have been on here that they actually retained energy better than the majority of the rest and had the advantage of a flat trajectory and quicker flight time.

    My TTR barrel was 'engineered' for them... It does this... The dropped shot was me

    I use AA express as i find them more accurate in my barrel.

    JSB RS are my preferance if your barrel likes them.

    The 7.87gr are more efficient in my rifle than the 8.4gr . Cloverleaf did a very indepth article on jsb variants a while back and with his apparatus it was found the 7.9gr air arms ( same pellet ) were more efficient and held more of thier specific percentage of initial velocity at range than any other variant . Also a very accurate pellet. I dont see why they would not be good for hunting , accuracy being the name of the game.

    I use the JSB Exact Express 4.52, 7.87 g exclusively in every .177 rifle I own.
    Superbly accurate and hard hitting .:thumb:
    Here's a 12 shot group with the Pro Sport, check the group size with the stock bolt lads.

    They are my HW99S's preferred pellet by far, very fast and very accurate
    I tried the RS version in the same rifle and it was over 12ft/lbs every shot:facepalm: so I've stuck with the Express version giving me 11.3 ft/lbs:thumb:
