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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Hello Folks, I am taking my HW77 to the local gun shop to ask them to run it through their chrono. Do I need to ask for any specific info or just a printout of speeds and what sort of pellets were used?

    Cheers,
    Brookesssy

    Just be careful about having your gun chronoed at a gun shop.......if it comes out over 12ft lbs you wont be leaving with it

    Use the pellets that you normally use in your gun for chronoing or the results will be of little use to you!

    Are there no members around where you live with a chrono? As reaper6 said, you need to be careful. If it is over the limit, it is an offence for them to allow you to leave the shop with it until it has been fixed. This means that they know that you want it back, so they can charge pretty much anything they want for them to fix it.

    If you fancy a trip up to Hoy in Orkney, I have just ordered a F1 Chrony. Hopefully there will be somebody closer.

    They are pretty decent in there, worst comes to the worst they will get me to buy a new spring...It probably needs one anyway! I would love a trip back to Orkney, I went up to Kirkwall for 10 days in 2010 and it is full of the most friendly people I have ever come across. LOVED IT! You are very lucky! I have tried to find people from the Borders on this forum but have struggled, which is a shame.

    I find it difficult to find anybody on here from Orkney. It is very isolating. Nice place to live though.

    Well, if you fancy showing your rifle off, I will be glad to see her in the flesh. Of course, you would be welcome as well. :D

    My advise would be to take along some of your current pellets and ask them to use those and also to test it with RWS Superdomes as a comparison as superdomes seem to be a good 'general' pellet to use as a benchmark. Anything over 11.5 f/lbs with the Superdomes would be marginal in my opinion.

    Also, get them to shoot off at least 5 shots before chrono'ing it as the first five shots are always dubious in terms of readings as lubes settle and need a good shooting to stir them up a bit.
