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.

    hello bob, thats interesting what you said about these .177 defiants, i tried some in HFT 8.5grains /0.65grms 4.52 head boxed in 500, bought about a year ago. interesting design as not much space internal then the skirt, is that the same ones you recommend? i did not find work in my super six as well as the JSBs heavy which has a longer skirt, or the crosmans, but all sit in the 8 shot magazine well. cheers

    Defiant is a Range of Bullet Shaped Air Gun Pellets -

    7.50 are lighter version than the HFT which are 8.50 Grains - Was Originally made for Daystate as Rangemansters -
    Who marketed them @ around £18.00 per Box

    Bullet Design fly's Flater and Faster than Wasted Design - All are made from Quality Lead Wire Stamped out on Single Die Machines

    And I have been known to supply forum board users @ £10.00 per Box - For Cash / Bank Payment ;)

    in defence of defiant. I use .177 HFT 8.5gr 4.50 head size in my HW100S. They group lovely thanks. The next choice for my gun was the H&N FTT 8.5gr 4.53 which it also likes but like the Aldi advert, it likes the defiants a bit better. We are talking 5p grouping at 40 metres.

    It did not like the 7.5gr defiants at all. 20mm grouping at 40metres.

    Many get confused - About Defiants they are Lead Pellet - Bullet Shaped and come in Different Sizes & Weights

    Agree there are not pages of advert's like other pellets - Why when the majority of available production is Exported

    Just goes to Show that overseas Shooters appreciate Better Air Gun Pellets ;)

    No Air Gun Pellet Works in All Guns or any Gun Fire All Air Gun Pellets -

    I will also immediately jump to the defence of Defiants - they are a fantastic pellet and their aerodynamic efficiency is greater than any other pellet I have tested, based on their flight trajectory. The stability at range is better than JSBs (which I do use as my preferred pellet in my .20 Rapid, so I am not against JSB).

    This was 35 yards from my SLR98, a recoiling rifle. This is a 2 magazine group, so 14 shots. I think from that you can deduce the wobblers were down to me! How can anyone say this is a crock of sh1te.....?

    [​IMG]

    Defiants need a clean barrel and when I tried them in my Scorpion T10 it took 120 shots before they started to group. I had all but given up on them, but decided to see the box off...boy was I glad I did. That rifle and Defiants (Large head size) produced groups like that above at 50 yards.....brilliant accuracy, less drop off at range than JSBs (the Air Arms Fields actually, but they are the same pellet) by some 15mm at 50 yards - that is the diameter of a rabbits eye.

    What I will say about the Defiants is they are VERY head size fussy. The Ls in my rifle produced groups like that shown, if I used the M head size that opened straight up to over 20mm and the S size were just a scatter on an A4 sheet at the same range! Put the L back in and it was immediately bang on again. HEAD SIZE for your barrel and very clean rifling is a must. I also think that the type of rifling matters. The BSA has rifling that is equal land and groove, the SLR is an Anschutz barrel with knife edge rifling, so very little drag in the barrel from these types of rifling. Perhaps other styles of rifling don't suit it so well, or at all. It could be other things, such as the lead-in shape in the breech or loading mechanism. Misalignment between magazine and barrel in individual rifles, my Air Ranger has a noticable step between the single pellet tray and the breech, causing it to knock a corner off every pellet if I try to use the single shot loading tray, but the magazines line up much better and provide better groups. That is totally contrary to what people will tell you about magazines and single shot trays - and I agree with them, except in the case of this particular Air Ranger!

    So, don't give up on any individual pellet until you have given it a fair crack of the whip - and found the correct head size for your barrel. Not every .177 pellet is the same size, there are three sizes, 4.51mm, 4.52mm and 4.53mm. With .22 it is the same, there are 5.51, 5.52 and the old British .22 which is bigger again at 5.56!

    I used 14 grain 5.50 Defiants with my 19ftlb rifle and they were superb giving the best accuracy and flattest trajectory. Found them to be fantastic ammo for squirrel hunting. My new rifle is 30ftlb and I've just ordered up some Ogives for testing.
