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.

    No thanks, not for me - I still remember the old LEM pellet mould from way back. I'll stick with the ready-made variety...

    Not worth the time and effort, so go out and buy £120's worth of your favourite pellet(s) instead :thumb:

    I dont have first hand experience, with these molds , and kits. However , I do know people who make there own ammo. For centre fire guns.
    It would be great to compare, shop bought pellets, to these that are made by hand so to speak.

    From what I've seen/read of them there's 2 glaring issues, one is lead mix and the second is the weight...

    1) Antimony is used to govern how hard or soft the lead of the pellet is and (2) generally these swaging kits produce pellets of at least 20grns and more often than not they're heavier than that which is far to heavy for a sub 12 airgun...

    On one of the sites, its possible to get a certain weight. It has to be ordered though. If I could get a Kaiser die, to make .20 pellets. That my gun loves, I could be tempted to try it.
    Unfortunately it's not going to happen.

    Believe people who shot FAC back in the day went this route when there wasn't so much choice in heavy weight pellets now days it's a whole different story

    Your not wrong, I cant remember where I saw it, but the pellets we use at 12ftlbs, are suitable for FAC use too, eg Daystate Kaiser .20 suitable up to 24ftlbs. This is just a example. Other brands have higher or lower FAC power
