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 understand all rifles differ from each other, even those that are the same brand and model, but can anyone recommend any decent pellets to fire from a HW 99s. For plinking and for hunting. Much appreciated

    RWS Superdomes - Good quality all rounder, readily available, reasonably priced and probably most universally suited pellet for most riles.

    RWS Superdomes are a good allrounder,RWS Hobby for target(paper punching) as well.You can by sample packs on ebay where you get 20 pellets of various makes.

    Yeah heard about these sample packs you can get. Some of them look a rip off for what you're actually getting half the time though.

    But yeah I'm guessing the pellet pack will be the best idea anyway otherwise I might end up buying a full tin of lead that my rifle spits out in disgust.

    Domes are a good place to start. As mentioned, every barrel has a preferred pellet, but it's quite rare that you'll have poor results with the Superdomes. They're often a good reference point, if nothing else.

    You won't go too far wrong if you avoid cheap nasty pellets.

    Yeah got a horrible tin of Webley Harrier V3's at the moment that the guy at the shop said to just lead her in with but not use full time as they're terrible and full of flyers.

    Rws hobbies as said are great , in some of my rifles stunning. But are lighter and loud through the air kind of a whizz. Used these a lot I have no accuracey issues over distance either .ide guess would make a very effective hunting pellet if they suit a barrel.
    In 22 I love rws lead.

    Yes,not the cheapest way to buy pellets but less expensive than buying whole tins only to find they're no good in your particular gun.Don't think you'll go far wrong with Hobbies & Superdomes though,inthe unlikely event that they don't suit you wont have any trouble flogging them :)

    another vote for the domes - find out if your shooter likes them, and buy from here in bulk http://cheapairriflepellets.co.uk/r...gun-pellets-tin-of-500-x-10-tins-p-70444.html
    postage is about £6 for up to 20 tins

    I found some pellets called magnumdomes. Bought them as a cheap and cheerful general plinking pellet. I was really surprised how well they took to my old BSA Airsporter.

    Accurate and consistent and they pack a punch. They come in a plastic container that has a small hole for taking the pellets out so you cannot spill the tin everywhere.

    Not a common make. Got them from a gun and tackle shop in Abergavenny.

    If you can give your barrel a pull through first it may help,and don't expect accuracey to be as good as it will/should be for atleast 30/40 shots as it will take atleast that to lead the barrel with this pellet choice.
    I never change once I got the right lead.

    as said above crosman premier are top pellets too ,I use the carton box type light and heavy especialy in 177 cal,agreed the ultra mag or heavy boxed 177 are the best I have in that cal too in .20. Great longer size to for big sausage fingers.

    The hobbies I hope will really impress you ,as their much lighter fps will increase and you will love the whizzzzzzzzz.
