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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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 used Napier Pellet oil on some of my pellets but as of yet not seen any major improvements and I do use PellGun oil in my SMK XS78 CO2 rifle to keep all the seals healthy.

    But the other week I was watching an American on YouTube and he was recommending that two-stroke oil was good for pellet lubrication; what do you reckon; good or bad Idea?

    I do find it hard to believe that somebody has formulated a lubricant especially for airgun pellets.

    Many years ago, I used to add a drop or two of 3 in 1 to a tin of pellets, after probably reading about it in an airgun magazine. Many, many years later, I found a tin of these lubed pellets, and they appeared to be in the same condition as before, and still smelled lovely.

    Better of spending your time checking the skirts aren’t damaged instead of washing and lubing

    I think it's a well known fact that polishing the dome on your trousers makes them go faster

    I wanted to be a Pellet Lube Technician when I grew up, but didn’t pass the exams. So now I just use them straight out of the tin.

    I wouldn’t bother Chris, as the others have said already, life is too short!

    I'm the anorak that bought a pellet sizer, weighed the pellets, measured the head sizes and sorted them accordingly.
    Did I see any improvement?
    I think you know the answer, none at all.

    Not in any respect.
    Any deformed ones get binned, the rest get shot out of the tin / pocket / mag.

    Live in Stoke On Trent. But i visit Bromsgrove.
    I don't wash \ lube or even size pellets, but I might weigh some pellets for my bigger HFT comps, however I think its all in our heads well 95% is.
    Saying that I've seen some tiny bit tighter groups with lube & washed pellets using some certain jsb batch numbers in the past when I tested the myth out a few times some years ago, but for what I do & what I can do its just not worth my time to go all the way,,,,, as yet :D.

    Just use quality pellets like jsb.
    Lead is a good lubricant and doesn’t need additional lubes added.

    I've not found any benefit to lube.
    Weighing and sizing however....

    40 yards, rifle rested both ends.
    5 shots per group.

    On the left, straight from the tin.
    On the right, weighed and sized.
    Slight breeze from right to left, topmost hole was the aim point.

    If washing/lubing floats your boat and convinces you that the pellets are better for it......go for it, can't do any harm or if you think there's no difference use them straight from the tin. Everyone's a winner, simples.:)
