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.

  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.

Air arms S410 pellets help...

    Hey guys, just out of curiosity, spent the evening putting my air arms s410 .22 calibre over the chronograph and getting really consistent results with several different pellets. The air arms fields are coming in nicely at 11.2 flb's. Some of the pellets I tried didn't seem to work very well through the gun, and I am just curious - does anyone know of any pellets which would go well in the gun, and take the readings up towards 12flb's? I thought that the lighter pellets would have been more powerful, but the readings suggest that they produce less power than the AA fields do.

    If anyone can help I would really appreciate it! Cheers!

    I could be wrong but I think heavier is more power in pcp, lighter is more power in a springer

    Heavier pellets will put the ftlb up

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    generally, heavier pellets in pcp and lighter pellets in springers will result in maximum muzzle energy. 11.2 ftlb with a medium weight pellet is about spot on - with a pellet like a bisley magnum, you will probably be approachig 12ftlb.
    i would think that h&n field target trophy and jsb exacts will work well in this rifle, altho theyre both medium weight pellets. what you've got to remember tho is that the best pellet may not be putting out the most power - consistency and accuracy comes before power.
    i have some bisley magnums knocking about - i will send you a sample if you want - just make a small donation to the wellies fund to cover the postage, if thats ok - just pm me

    hello, i have had my .22 S410 about 4 years now and put oodles of pellets through at about 11.5, AA fields, i have never worried to try a different pellet as these shoot spot on and have gone through rats at 25mtrs and killed rabbits at 40 mtrs, more power does not mean longer ranges kill range. as it happens i only use this rifle for rats now, but with my FX T12 long barrel and matts mod .177 and using JSBs heavy i can get a slightly better range using my home made 5ft bipod with n/v. i did not think i would ever go to .177 but wish a few more manufactures made .20 like brocock/FX/AA

    My S410 loved superdomes mate. Very accurate and consistent over a chrono.

    Pellet choice will vary from gun to gun, I use AA Fields in my 177 S410 and they work well, it seemed to me that they would sell pellets and rifles that worked well together. If they give you 11.2 ftlbs then Bisley Magnums will probably put you very close to 12 and might even creep over so are worth checking.

    11.2 ftlb with a AA field is bang on. The difference between 11.2ftlb and 11.7(don't go over this with any pellet) is so minute that you wont notice the difference in practice.

    Not really any difference, the poi at 45 yards would be about a pellet's width higher.
