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.

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.

    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item

  6. 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.

    For anyone interested I've uploaded a short video I made to help me evaluate some subsonic cartridges I've been reloading alongside some factory ones. Really I need a sound meter and chrono set up to do this properly but it gives an indication and might be of interest to anyone considering or owning a Hushpower type gun.

    I'm not a video maker, in fact this includes my first attempt at any kind of editing but I've found it an interesting way of passing some quiet time.

    Interesting video, thank you for posting it. Unfortunately you have set off my 410 itch now and I'm trying to be a good boy and not buy any more guns. :):):):facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

    Ditto - I've only just purchased a new SG and I am already looking at .410 pump actions - resistance is futile :facepalm:
    Thanks for the video Joe :thumb:

    Thanks lads. I much prefer it to a 12 bore because the stalking is similar as with an air rifle but with the option of snap shots.

    Your not helping mate as it’s the 410 pumps I’m looking at. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:
    I’ve just bought a new Tikka T3 223 super varmint so the gun itch has been scratched. Well for this month anyway. :):):):)

    Good vid Joe, iv'e seen many on the tube not as informative as yours. The Fiocchi and the Eley (to a lesser extent) are considerably louder than the rest.
    I like the "no bull****" style of this video.
    Keep up the good work mate. :thumb:

    All I'm going to say at this stage is that most of the shot is falling in a 14 inch circle at 20 yards as basically I've not done any pattern testing so far. As said in the video I'm working on a hand load recipe and have whittled it down to three, yellow, green and purple and pattern testing comes next probably with some fine tuning until I'm happy. Then I'll test the cartridge, along with some factory loads in my mates Mossberg and somewhere along the way I'll get a chrono and sound meter to make it all a little less subjective.

    Next, I'll be reworking the loads for bismuth which really is the whole point of the exercise and finally I'll look at modifying the load for reloading. At the moment I'm just cutting the used cases down to 2 1/2 inch for my W&S as it takes them without any resizing issues.

    So Ill keep on filming and keep you posted! I'm happy to share the recipe if anyone wants do roll their own but by pm only, not on open forum.

    The no bull comment made me smile by the way, and the rest of you, when you cave into the inevitable I hope you post some pictures ;)

    No hijack at all red dog, that's a very useful looking resource and should help me understand my cartridges better - and probably lead to me spend more money than I should in the quest for consistency ;)
