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 had lemon of a compatto, eventually they swapped it for a Bantam which i've not had time to test properly yet.

    Brocock suggested Bisley Mag's for the compatto & i found the smaller head size (4.51?) better than the larger.

    It also performed ok with RWS super dome & not bad with Bisley practise (flat heads). Sadly nothing would hold a group past 25 yards with mine so i'm not sure if my old rifle will have anything in common with yours?

    Good luck with it & the testing. JSB and RWS do sample packs. They might help you narrow your search?

    JSB Heavy followed by Daystate Kaiser and Bisley Magnums were the preferred pellet of choice in mine when i had it.

    The downside was, i had to clean the barrel every 250-500 pellets to maintain accuracy. So if you are doing pellet testing, might be a good idea to invest in a pull-through cleaning kit

    Don't trust the magazine's! Use the single shot loader for pellet testing. My MK1 bantam .177 likes jsb heavies the best.

    Good advice! I forgot about this, the magazines supplied are sometimes known to cause accuracy issues, so single shot tray is the way forward for testing

    Yep JSB heavies I use in mine, but that said I seem to use them in all my .177's. Bisley mags seem to work also, but seem rough to cycle.. Never had a prob with my compatto, guess I must have got a good un.

    Ah, another thing I remeber about the mags now.....

    I tried this single loader thing with loads of pellets & the mags I had are very fussy with some pellets.

    I'd find a pellet that it seemed to like & then the mag would seem to chew it up rather than put it in the barrel.

    I think the Falcon accuracy plus we're fairly good in the tray but about 40% wouldn't work in the mag.
    I ended up spending more time forcing the mag out. Fishing the deformed pellet out from behind it & lobbing it in the bin.

    This was done while rested on a bench, the rifle was completely horizontal.

    If it doesn’t shoot any of the 3 or 4 main candidates spot on past 25 yds send it back. Don’t waste time effort and money trying to find THE pellet.

    Good ones are great but sub prime examples are not uncommon and they do shot gun.

    The Compatto was going to be my first purchase into the big bad world of PPC rifles before i got my Rapid, and after much research, most people seemed to agree that they are extremely pellet fussy, amd that Bisley Magnums were one of the few pellets that got good results.

    Give the barrel a good clean first if it’s new, then check it over the Chrono

    I would have said definitely Bisley Magnums until this morning when I've tried JSB heavies.
    What a revelation!
    So accurate and sooo much easier to cycle.
    That's in my Bantam anyway :)

    My Bantam likes h&n ftt, daystate Kaisers and jsb exacts 4.52 I think I am extremely lucky to have got a non pellet fussy one. The .22 Compatto I have on the other hand just likes Daystate Soverign and not much else, strange...….

    When I first had my Compatto it absolutely loved Air Arms Diabolo Express 7.9g 452 and Air Arms Diabolo Field 8.4g 452, but having been virtually through the card including Bisley Magnums, H&N FTT, Daystate Sovereigns, Daystate Kaiser, blah blah blah, I've now settled on JSB Exact 8.44g 451's. It's like a laser......not bad for an unregulated rifle.
