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.

    Thank you.

    '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 know that all barrels like different food but is there anyone on here with a daystate .20 that could recommend a few brands to try? Either that or point me in the direction of where I could buy a sample pack? Cheers

    Check the weights, most manufacturers are the same as .22 ie 14+ grains. Very loopy in .20

    H&N Field Target 11.42 grain, great in my Daystate .20 Harrier SE, 11.4 ftlbs

    H&N FTT are pretty good through my .20 MFR. Might be worth a punt.

    In weight order:
    H&N FTT 11.5gn
    JSB Exact 13.5gn (but fly just as flat as the FTT out of the same rifle....paper maths doesn't account for it!!)
    Accupell 14.3gn
    Crossman Premier 14.3gn

    I would put money on one of the first two being perfectly acceptable. The JSB would be my first choice.

    That's because they come from the same place :p

    As for suggestions you don't have a whole lot to choose from so might as well just go for pretty much everything - off the top of my head these would be my choice:

    H&N FTT
    Bisley Superfield
    JSB Exact
    Crosman Premier (if you can get some decent ones)

    Tbh wouldn't waste your time with Baracudas as they're too heavy and create too much drag or Accupels as their quality appears pretty p*ss poor..

    That's interesting because I always rated Accupell, use them in .22 and they go well. Is this your experience with the modern setup of Accupell? If so, you might just have saved me a bob or two and I owe you a beer!

    Recently my experience of Accupell, is not good.

    Both me and my son were using them, then about 3-4 months ago were at HFT and both shooting ***p, unusual for both of use to be so bad.

    When we got home checked on my range, spread at 30 yds was about 80mm!!!!! Had some AAFT around, after a few shots to "lead in", back to pellet on pellet.

    Yes; IIRC the older Crosman-branded Accupells were a reasonable, cheaper alternative to Premiers. Now they're Webley branded they're pretty nasty in my experience :(
