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.'

  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.

    I'm reloading for my daughter's/wife's 20 gauge and need to move to fiber for our local grounds.

    Powder of choice is Lovex S015 and load is 24 gms (7.5 but likely 9 in time).

    Does anyone have any data for a nice safe load? Using 70mm cheddite hulls, 4mm nitro cards and 19mm wads.

    cheers

    Brad

    Clay game reloaders will have data sheets or fed Kent.
    You could try the cz ecplosia website for data, most powder manufacturers have recipes on their sites.
    I find the cheapest powder is maxam so would look at data for that powder.

    I've looked at the website and there is no data for your powder. They only list two for 20bore using do30 & do35 with paper cases.

    Phone clay and game, speak to them as they may have worked up a load with your powder. Data sheets are pound or two each.

    Cheers. I contacted them and it will cost £28 for a load to be worked up. Cheaper to change powders....

    Maxam powders are the cheapest in the UK.

    FES Kent have recipes here's a link scroll down to 20 gauge.
    http://www.feskent.co.uk/loads1.htm

    Your other option is look at cz ecplosia and it has the burn rates and your powder is the same as others, find a recipe using the other powders and drop a grain or two to start with.
    Work up your own load.

    Thanks for that. The issue is finding somewhere in the SW that stocks it. I went through the process of equating S015 to Green Dot (Green Dot is next to S015 on the burn rates) and dropped 0.5 grain of powder. Will have to see how it performs. Cheers

    Drop a full grain and check for signs of over pressure, pattern them too as to fast blows patterns.
    If you can save powder get a clean burn less kick with good patterns it's a winner.

    I use Alliant Unique if you're interested in data for that?

    Yes please, although I am limited by what my local RFDs can get in. Not a lot on offer in the SW.
