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.

    Hi all
    Just got in from a really good plinking, range finding session

    Checked my 30yard zero first then commenced to find out
    my hold over out to 50yards 35yds 3/4 mil dot 40yds 1 1/2 mil dot
    45yds 21/4 mil dot 50yds 31/4 mil dot with that done and
    some good groups achieved almost pellet on pellet at times
    We set a good amount of empty 12 bore and 410 cartridges
    at 45 yards once i sorted the windage i was away sometimes
    knocking the targets 15yards back .Then to make things harder we laid
    5 empty 12 bore cartridges on the end brass facing us and
    we were pleased to be hitting these in the conditions all in all
    a really great time was had by us both i learn't a lot about
    my new rifle and can now see whey people rave about there accuracy

    I picked one up in 177 last week and had it out on Sunday morning at the range and was well pleased.
    I did like you, was just getting used to holdover and was knocking and resetting the 50 yard target with ease and a big smile on my mush.

    I tried FTT through mine last night as Ive swapped scopes, it was breaking hole into hole but not like it does with AA field, but still plenty useable, got to say though FTT are my new favourite pellet through the daystate, all I can say is wow, transformed it.

    My HW has got some catching up to do now lol but with its regular diet its usually cock on, and capable of drawing pins at 45 yrds in still conditions.

    I've still got a pair of HW100 K's (.177 & .22) that i bought new a good few years ago now, they shoot as good now, if not better than when i first bought them.

    They've never missed a beat and although i own other rifles costing more than twice the price, they are still my favourites.

    Still the best PCP out there (IMO) ;)
