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 recently acquired a Mk3 .177 S10 Carbine and was wondering what pellets you guys use in them.

    I went to the indoor range this morning to try and find a pellet that would work and was a little disappointed with my groupings at 35 yards.

    I tried the usual suspects - JSB Exact 4.52, AA Fields 4.52, H&N FTT 4.50 and RWS Superdomes ..... Well they were all the different pellets I could find in my cupboard this morning lol

    Surprisingly the best grouping was with the Superdomes!
    JSB, AA and H&N were pretty much like a shotgun!

    Any advice, experience and suggestions would be greatly received.

    This is purely a pellet question as I went through the process of barrel cleaning, re-leading etc

    Thanks in advance :up:

    Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum .177 10.5 grain
    Defiant Ogive 4.52mm 11 grain

    Those work best in my Bull Barrel Carbine (Defiant Ogives gave the best result according to John Bowkett)...

    Try a larger head size 4.53 Exact, could always try BisMags as favoured by a lot of people. Personaly i use JSB Express and 4.52's in my .177 BSA's

    Just nipped out to my local RFD and have come home with some Bisley Magnums and some JSB Exact Heavys so next time I can get to the indoor range I`ll give them a try.

    I will try the Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum .177 10.5 grain and the Defiant Ogive 4.52mm 11 grain :up:

    I will try a bigger JSB Exact too :up:

    Well I went to the range armed with a few different pellets and the best grouping / accuracy seemed to be JSB Exact Heavys.
    Out to 50 yards I could get a sub 3/4 inch group which I was more than happy with.
    Surprisingly little drop off out to that range too!
    Anything 35 yards and closer were 5 pellets within a 5p piece :up:
