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.

    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.'

  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.

    Guys, i am a firm believer of the washing of pellets having seen the changes it can make with grouping, but I would like to know, how do you all do it to avoid the pellets oxidising? Do you just wash a few for that days shooting or do you use something that prevents it? The reason I ask is I washed some H&N's and they have now got an oxidised coating on them (dull finish etc) and I am thinking I've probably done it wrong lol

    Are they still doing the LT1 Steve,I googled them from your thread link and just ended up on their ebay shop.The stuff they have on there is called "supremacy" at £4.99.They do have 100% feedback,so must be good to deal with.It could be the same lube rebranded perhaps.Nice write up mate,I must have missed it originally.

    After you have washed them make sure they are really dry and tip them into a plastic bag with a squirt of Ballistol and roll them round before putting back into the tin

    yes, if you wash them, you are effectively stripping them of the existing lube or protectant - this needs replacing, otherwise the lead will oxydise

    I haven't washed any pellets lately for the same reasons as given by the OP. I tried using Napier pellet lube but dripping a couple of drops into a bag and seeing at least one vanish straight up the chuff of a single pellet made me think it a waste of time.
    I now have a spare aerosol spray from Specsavers Cleaning Solution and wondered about diluting Napier Pellet Lube and spraying it on a tray of pellets then tumbling lightly.
    Has anyone tried diluting it or have any suggestions?

    Put the lube in the bag first before the pellets, I find it coats the pellets better:)

    I got some of the atomiser lube, had a pellet washing ceremony and followed the advice given. Lets see what happens!
