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.

  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.

    got some 177 hand n hornets today in LA POSTE!!.

    all in all amazingly awsome. takes plinking charity shop toys to a new level.

    mad pentration, beautifully machined, wonderfully accurate. only downside is the price.

    anyone else found them as satisfying as i have?

    just wondered if they are any more like this? i know about metalmag predators, and skenco ultramags but are there any more?

    all of them seem to have a metal spike but im yet to find a super hard tip. steel etc.

    failing finding them i may try some cut down nails in my piledrivers and report back on here.

    over n out

    the polymer tips ones.....are ****...too expensive and deform less than hollopoints or just regular domeheads, the zombie tracer polymer tip are even more pants.... well that is out of my sub 6ftlbs pistol so they may work better in a higher powered rifle.

    the glow in dark tip is softer than the redfire ones and you cant see it in flight unless your in a pitch black room and youve charged the hell out of the glow tip with a super bright uv LED. as ive posted before if you want to recreate starwars i strongly suggest mini fishing lure glowsticks. cheap, superbright splatter on hard target impact.

    the metal tip ones however... going by my hornets...have ridculous penatration on a hard skinned target i.e. tin cans, plastic toys etc.... the kind of plinking i do. however the hornets have a brass tip i think i was looking for somethign with an even harder sharp steel tip.

    The zombie ones aren't meant to act as tracer rounds,if you want to see them in flight,put them in backwards.

    Jim,
    Piledrive design is that it's a small hole on way in - weight of backing lead expands on impact

    Normally small hole in with a mass of way out - normally a quick death -

    Plastic tips are to make penetration and weight should follow - but are made for higher power guns -

    Most state that sub12FP rifles do not have enough impack - So rather a waste in UK

    Cost as made and assembled in several different Countries -

    why else would the ammo be glow in the dark if their not tracers? tracing in flight or tracing where it rests after beign shot.

    why oh why on any forum, if i ask a straight questions i get know it all off topic answers?

    please list some hard metal tipped pellets that i havent.
