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.

  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.

    Ah ha; and there was me thinking a pellet was a pellet, was a pellet!

    A superbly informative post; many thanks for taking the time and effort to keep us all well informed.

    An excellent post that has answered a few questions I had and also scuppered my silly thought that the label was some cheap version of barcode.
    When ordering approx 5 tins or more what are the chances of getting the same batch etc altogether?
    I tend to buy mine in 10's from Country way gunshop so they come in pre packed sleeves or bulk buys of 50's from JS Ramsbottom which was a straight case of 5 sleeves.
    I assumed they were all the same.
    It will be interesting to check if the numbers all match or (apart from the requested 4.50 that I expect to be guaranteed)?
    I will start checking tin by tin.
    Many thanks
    Peace

    I can't tell the difference between a 4.50/4.51/4.52 they seem to group the same to me (but I am thick as s#1t and extremely inexperienced) but those little shotgun slug type pellets missed by a mile and I could even see them plopping out of the end before dragging themselves to hit the edge of the paper target (they reminded me of me when I used to spend an hour in the sea and then have to try to get back to our spot on the beach).
    Embarrassing, slow and leaving you with the question of was it really worth it? Lol.

    What does M47/08 on the front of the tin mean?
    I have exacts, exact express and heavies all with the same number on them.

    Never heard or saw something like this.
    Most probably some additional label of a reseller.

    Got a picture?

    All the other tins I have seen on ebay for example have the letters CZ in a box where the M 47/08 is in this photo.
    every tin of JSB pellets I currently have, two exact express, two exact and two exact heavies all have the same M 47/08 on the bottom. the last two numbers on the label on the back are 18, meaning they were made last year.

    When I find a tin of pellets that group well I save them as my reference tin, so if in the future I find my accuracy is dropping off I load up a mag full of my references and if they shoot poor I know there's an issue with the rifle.

    One for the .20 fans, know of a good die number to ask for on the exact tins? Currently using from die 22 but still get mild fliers despite weighing the pellets. Have finally ordered a .20 pelletgage from intershoot to see if I'm missing something in the pellets. Think my HW100 might like a fat head but wont be able to tell for sure till I know exactly what I'm feeding it.

    Nice one mate. I wondered what it all meant? That's explained it. If you don't know something like this it would be very hard, if not almost impossible to find out.

    I was using JSB Exact .177, but seemed to be pulling to the right. Had a sample tube of H&N field sport trophy, .177. They smacked the bull every time. I bought a scale, measures +/- .001 gr - I think it's a fav of drug sellers - but accurate. The JSB's were .01 to .02 in range. The H&N were smack on weight every time.

    Old thread but seeing as I saw the answer to this one on JSBs website the other day, it's the approval mark of the Czech Proof House for Arms and Ammunition. Pellets/labels made post October 2017 say "M47/08". Prior to that it was the little saw-like logo with a CZ in the middle

    Sorry to rain on the thread but alas in the real world the below link will give you all some
    Idea of what you are really getting size and weight wise in your tin of pellets
    I had to laugh when i read it and no longer bother with any of it now myself
    I will leave it all to the so called experts who i got the information from :rolleyes:
    When you think about it from an engineering point of view it would be
    Impossible for a mass produced soft lead item be specified as 0.01 intolerance

    Which is less than 40% of a thou in size :eek:
    As is in the case of most pellet head sizes ;) and weight as stated on your tin
