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.

    It depends on the power etc, but I find 35 is pretty good. At 11.1fpe with JSB Exacts I get secondary zero at ten yards and then it's less that 0.5" high all the way to 35, and then it's 2.5 inches low at 50 yards.

    I zero at 25yds. Everything is either on the crosshairs or below, nothing above.

    :up: jackroadkill has it spot on. All of my .177's are set to that distance and I simply use the reticle grads to alter the aim point. My .22's are set to 30 metres and I use the same method to aim. Nice tight small groups when you get the hang of it. I find the 'tree' type reticle the most useful.............
    Go on...give it a go and see for yourself :up:

    35 for me as it's the best zero between about 12 yards and 40 with little or no need to hold over or under 28 I think is best for .22

    Primary set at 35-40m which then gives a secondary @ 10-15m.

    And, as above, set things up to suit the combo you use. If set up right, you can arrange set distances about the 35m mark to coincide with your ret' marks, making it easier for you in the long run ;)

    Blimey, thanks for all the replies! Did wonder if I was thinking of .22, I remember it was zini "si pittaway" saying about it, and I know he does use the .22,s quite a bit.
    Just put chairgun on my phone but can't find instructions yet.
    My main problem is with the pulsar n550 on one of my ultra se,s, because it sits so high above the bore. This is one of my main work rigs, I was doing a rabbit job a few nights ago and couldn't go wrong, but a couple of rat jobs recently I've been having several misses because of range estimates.

    I believe that there are some Chairgun videos on Youtube although the latest versions have changed a bit with more features it should still give you some help, it's easy enough to use on a pc. The phone version is a bit more complicated/fiddly but still very useful.
