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.

Bisley Magnums at 22fpe after hitting a steel 45 gallon drum at ten yards

    Thought some of you might find this interesting.

    I shot a few pellets from my Theoben Eliminator at the bottom of a steel 45 gallon drum to check the zero and was quite chuffed with the way the pellets behaved. They're BisMags, at 21gr, and some of them penetrated the drum where more than one pellet had hit.

    Anyway, pics:

    I'm quite impressed by how well they stayed together; large amounts of expansion but little or no fragmentation. The bunnies aren't going to like this at all.

    I reckon so! I'm thinking I might bring the power up a little in time but for the moment I can't see any problem with it as it is.

    I'd leave it be, or only go up a small amount, if you feel you must.

    The Eliminator gets a little lively when you push it further up the scale, and anything with a pucker factor can get squirrelly as you get a little older.

    Or so I heard...

    ;)

    You should still be able to knock nails in with it at that power :)

    A 21 grain pellet would be travelling at around 687 fps to give 22 ft.lbs energy.

    It's a very heavy pellet. 21 grains is quite a lot. I suppose I should try it with something really light and see what speed they go at.

    Try logun penetrators the heavy one at 20g at your power level or defiant facs at 18g they should punch straight through. I like H&N extreme hunters 19.09g they hit hard.
