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.

    what pellets do you more knowledgable people recommend trying in a .22 ultra and scorpion t10 multishot and that are lighter in weight than my current choice ?

    ive mainly been .177 man and find the bsa mags prefer the longer pellet ( or at least i get very few mag jams with them) and in the case of my .177s they have been jsb heavies and they perform very well but the shorter/lighter pellets don't seem to feed as well ( and after reading cloverleafs excellent pellet test i quite fancy trying lighter pellets)

    so back to my .22 , i have a few tins of aa 16 grainers and hades and over the chrono they are consistent and accurate but fancy trying some lighter weight versions. will the lighter/shorter .22 pellets versions have the same potential feed problems in the mag as the lighter .177 do?

    and are you using any brands you would recommend ?

    many thanks

    Give JSB Exact RS (13.43gr) and Bisley LRG (14gr) a try - both within a gnat's cock of each other in mine and rarely have issues as long as the pellets are seated well into the mag

    I used JSB 13.43 RS in a scorpion SE.
    No issues at all.

    ^^^ This, plus Falcon Accuracy Plus. As That Hurts says, make sure the head pops past the mag o-ring and they're fine, never had a jam. I was surprised how much flatter and faster they fly - poi 1" higher than AADF and JSB Jumbo, more like a .20

    RWS Superfield fits perfectly in my old .22 Superten that I've converted to take the newer magazines. I'm aware some guns don't like them, but mine pancakes pellets on top of each other at 40m, and they feed flawlessly from the magazine.
