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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    I would think you will struggle to achieve that (with almost any rifle/pellet) even in ideal conditions - a football maybe.

    You would need around 18inches of holdover. Or rezero of course as there will be that much drop over 72 yds at close to 12ftlb.
    the pellet speed quoted is not right for UK sub 12ftlb as 800 fps would be 22ftlb.
    what do you really want to shoot at 72yds?

    Not an unrealistic proposal with a little practice, where I used to work I had a hide set up in an overgrown embankment, there was a "temp green" sited at a distance of 76mtrs and on wet days I'd set up targets (golf balls, pine cones, chess nuts and conkers) on that "temp green" and then take my .177/95k into the hide and practice shooting at range !...

    Personally I think that it's good for a shooter to push the limits of themselves and their equipment because if you can consistently hit a target at that kind of range it boosts confidence in yourself and your equipment no end !...

    Please bare in mind that at no point have I suggested shooting at live quarry over those extended ranges, just for practice purposes !...

    I often plink golf balls at 100 yard + to be fair it is not hard at all and if you cant do it you should not be shooting IMO

    I must admit I'm very curious as to the specifics of this,

    There isn't a golf course 72 yards from your house by any chance?
