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.

    I have never used them but have been wondering if they offer any advantage for hunting.....i no they are to heavy in .22 at sub 12 power, but my hunting pcp,s are .177....i always use jsb exact but have been thinking of giving the heavier bisley a go but only if it offers an advantage because it will drop more over distane than my lighter jsb,s.....so anyone hunt with them in .177 ? opinions please :)

    I used to use them in my .177 verminator and bsa ultra as they were the tightest grouping pellet. Brilliant they were and cant say a bad word about them.

    As above!!!!! I use them in my Superten .177 and no dropoff up to 30yds which is what I usually shoot at, I think they are a great pellet with plenty of clout. Atb Paul.

    i used to use bisley mags in mr r10 but changed to jsb exacts because my gun preferred them. a lot tighter groups with jsb and a lot less drop at longer ranges. if your thinking of changing for hunting. try them on targets first incase your gun doesn't like them. if your gun likes jsb's use them for hunting they are more than capable, its all about placement.

    Biz mags are the only pellet I had any confidence in when I tried .177, the extra drop is easily accounted for and they hit harder than anything.

    H&N Barracuda are the same pellet - Bis Mags are repackaged H&N Barracudas, in that H&N make them for Rothery's. The barracudas tend to be cleaner and even more consistent. If you like to think of it this way: Barracudas are 1st quality and Bis Mags are next.

    There is only one way for you to find out - try a tin!

    h&n also make weihrauch magnum, and i would place them inbetween the baracuda and bisley for quality - all 3 same pellet, differing quality

    No, no, no, no, no! The only advantage a .177 has is a slightly flatter trajectory. Why negate that advantage by using a heavier pellet? If you want to hit with more force extra weight won't help, its the extra 50% surface area a .22 has that does that, not the extra weight.

    I like bisley mags in .177 i find they are much less effected by cross winds a lot of the field target boys still use them so they still are a good pellet,some people like light weight .177 pellets i am not one of them especialy in pcp's.

    I tried Bisley Magnums in my Daystate X2. They weren't bad at all, and hit with a real thump! The groupings were pretty good, but I found that H&N FTTs grouped better, best of all for me, so I use them. If I want some real thump, or less penetration, I use the H&N Hunter Extremes, as they group just as well, with a small drop that's easily corrected. Same lead and fit so I can swap between them with no problem.

    I have a HW100S and they give me the best grouping. No appreciable drop off for me at 32 metres. Great for knocking over Wabbits.

    I use them in my .177 Bowkett tuned r10 mk1 and find they cycle flawlessly through the new type magazines and give excellent groups they also give good knock down power on rats which is what i mainly use the r10 for nowadays.

    My FN19 likes H&N Baracuda Match best of all - most consistent pellet of any I've tried.
