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.

  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.

  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.

    Went and bought 2 tins today and noticed that most of the pellets had slag/burs of lead in the top of the skirts.
    These must not have had the usual visual inspection that JSB's go through. :down:

    AA fields in .177 are almost always inferior to JSB or Daystate branded ones from a quality viewpoint. The .22s usually are ok though.

    i noticed a few months ago quality was slipping however the last two tins i bought 4.52 were perfect and the tin was slightly different but they are still the softest lead and best rabbit stoppers in the range

    It does look worse because the photo is so close, i will just have to deburr them when i have nothing better to do.
    Don't know if it helps anyone but the numbers on the label are 097 1405 5.52 18 and are metal tins. ;)

    I asked for a tin of air arms yesterday, the bloke in the shop says, "oh no, you don't want those, you want some of these"...

    He gave me a tin of H&N Field Target Trophy, at £8.50 a tin, I haven't tried them yet!

    Anyone know anything about them? And are they comparable to the AA's?

    FTT are a good pellet but have a slightly inferior BC to Fields. They are quite hard lead too. At £8.50 the shop owner is extracting urine.

    Any gun owner should test several brands and find the ones that work best in their barrel and then STICK to them.

    I've given up on AA Fields after binning so many. I've been doing some testing against JSB's (having sorted some good AA's) with my 110, these were the results

    Those were at 35 yards, the gun wasn't clamped but was rested fairly securely. I've put about 1k AA Fields through the Steyr and they definately don't feel as tight as the JSB's. My main issue with the AA's at the moment is the amount of them I bin.

    Nice shooting.
    i've just gone through 2 tins of AA field and i cant find 1 with swarf still on it or deformed as i've seen in some of the photos posted i must have got the only 2 good tins in existance or they had the trainee on quality control for a couple of weeks after i bought them.
