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.

    Mine likes Bis mags but I'm sure if darrin has xtx tuned it he will provide you with some info as to which pellets grouped best.
    Good luck with it mate you got yourself a nice bit of kit there.

    Get good results with mine using Bis mags, aa fields in 4.52 and crossman premier ultra magnums. If you are using a single shot tray falcon accuracy plus also gave me nice groupings.

    R10's have very pellet fussy barrels, it's going to be a case of suck it and see!

    After having my r10 recently tuned by John Bowkett he concluded that it was the least fussy barrel he had encountered and worked as well with JSB Exacts as any other of the 10 types of pellet he tried.... So I stick with JSB's

    he does also highly recommend the Falcon Accuracy plus as Pidlar has mentioned!

    my r10 loves jsb exacts, but all barrels are different so its a case of trying as many pellets as you can until you get a grouping your happy with.

    My old ultra loved JSB 4.52mm . BSA barrels are hammer forged and the mandrels are used for 10,000 barrels so the first couple of thousand will be tight and the last thousand will need a larger head size. Hence pellet fussy barrels its the luck of the draw.

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    as stated, bsa have some of the most pellet fussy barrels going, particularly in .177. i would think that darrin will point you in the right direction pellet wise.
    from experience, i would try weihrauch magnum (h&n baracuda match)and crossman premier ultramagnum - the 2 pellets that our ultra loves ( the r10/ultra tend to prefer the heavier and larger headed pellet). if you dont have any joy with other pellets, drop me a pm with your details and i will send you a few of each to try

    Just applying a bit of logic shows you have got it the wrong way around:). It would be the mandrels that wear which means the bores get smaller:D.

    My Super 10 was blueprinted by JB recently, it is a .177 and the best performing pellet was the Defiant Ogive in 4.52mm!

    Thanks guys for all your info I will see what is best when Darrin x-tunes it and then I will try the most popular ones you guys have recommended with varying head sizes and shoot some lead and see what's best.
    Just have to wait patiently for it to arrive :)

    As stated before - Pax Pellets was designed and Tested around John Bowket's BSA Rifles - Bullet Design

    Well aware that He sends out Test Cards using Pax Pellets as often get follow up orders are owners seeing John's Test Cards with their Rifles

    As Stated Larger Head sizes do seem to give better results 4.5's / 5.52's
