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.

    Following on from the posts in the other thread, I contacted H&N and simply asked the question with regard the label on the back of the tin....

    here is my email to H&N...

    Good morning Mr Wrede,


    I wonder if I could ask you one more question regarding all pellets, relating to the CN number on the tin.

    For example the label reads...


    CN 160919.90062.16 (upper line)
    (barcode)

    4 047058 017174 (lower line)


    am I right in assuming that…

    160919 = date of manufacture ... 19th September 2016
    90062 = don’t know?
    16 = year ?


    and on the lower line


    4 = Die number?


    it is helpful to know the Die number when match shooting, to be able to buy a few tins from the same run.


    Regards.
    Kevin.


    And here is the reply from H&N....

    Hello Kevin

    My colleague Holger forwarded me your last message regarding our CN numbers.

    First: You are right: The first six digits were the date of packaging in reverse sequence.
    The next numbers are just the personal number of the person who packed the pellets.

    The last digits are just the barcode of the product.
    We do not publish tool numbers.

    Also we do not mix different lots of pellets. If you should buy several tins from one carton it is definitively from one lot.

    Hope this information helps.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen/With best regards
    Peter.

    Thanks for that, not as easy identifying a good batch as other manufacturers then!

    I would think if you bought a tin and they were good, then there is a good chance any other tin with that date code would be from the same run/lot. but there is also the chance that H&N's manufacturing tolerances are so good that they don't need to use die numbers.

    I like H&N pellets, and so do my Rapids.

    Going back to my other thread, I thought I'd stumbled on the perfect pellet for My HW100, bought the last 2 tins at one of the shops in my area and they are spot on. Another local shop has just got a load in and knocking them out at £7.99, sensing an opportunity I bought a tin the other day with the assumption that they would be ok and then go back and fill my boots at that price. How wrong I was, they might as well been another manufacturers pellet, nothing like, different colour, there's a seam and they don't group anywhere like the '15 pellets. So I'm back on the pellet bingo game, wish H&N did publish tool numbers!!!!!
