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.

  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.

    When I first shot my 99 , the previous owner was using JSB exact 13.43 gr, the gun shot well with them, I couldn't get the same when I went to the gun shop so I bought a tin of Superdomes, the 99 liked them too,

    when I eventually tracked down some Exacts, the shop sold me heavys at 18.12 and I didn't check,the 99 liked them too but you could see the pellets
    were slow.

    I went back to the lighter jumbo rs exact , I could see the pellets speed up again.

    I have just bought a tin of Hyperdome lead alloy at 11.00 Gr, I will try these tomorrow.

    I am wondering how light 22 pellets can get without becoming unstable.

    As I am ,once again taking a stab in the dark, has anyone else tried this?

    RWS hobbies are 11.9gr if I remember correctly, but flathead so probably not so good at more than 25yds.

    RS @ 13.4grn as the lighter option or Express @ 14.3grn would be my preference...

    Around 14grn seems to be about rite for .22cal... :thumb:

    I used lightweight Falcon Accuracy Plus. 22's for many years in my springer. They were a fast, very accurate, acceptable trajectory pellet, but their low down range inertia and louder barrel report made me change to the heavier AA Diablo Fields a couple of years ago. I also had to straighten out a large percentage of the thin Falcons skirts from new each tin....:up:

    JSB Exact RS 13.43gr go well in my Crosman although the power can be dodgy. Over 16 joules if i am not careful. I have tweaked it down but the odd one hits the max allowed. Shoite happens. RWS Super Field go well too and don't break the bank.

    Oddly, Superdomes were a full ftlb down on the Falcons and AA Diablos over a chrono..! Must have been a poor barrel fit or summit....:confused:

    You won’t have to worry about RS being unstable in sub 12. I’m shooting them at 900 FPS and very accurate at 50 yds

    My 50s(99) loves 13.43 JSB (FAP) , though I have a Ruger (rammer) , that even @ 14+/- ft-lbs gets on well w/ 11.75 grain JSB/Predator GTO. 1" accuracy @ 50.... Give ' em a go!

    Also bisley long range gold at 14.2g work well in some .22 barrels and may be worth a try.

    My .22 Springer actually gives me great results over 25 yards with jsb hades and they are 15.89, I was fairly surprised, it also likes hobbies over short range, for some reason it actually prefers a slightly heavier pellet

    Yet to find a springer that doesn't love RS - and lead-free Exacts perform superbly in the 99s too. I rarely use anything heavier than Express...

    Depending how a springer is set up, they can shoot well with a wide range of pellets.

    Tuning for a light pellet, gets rid of any slam that often shows in factory spec springers, where they are simply just oversprung and benefit by a little more resistance.
    The shot feel, will aid or worsen accuracy.
