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.

    Jason. Have you had a look at the Hawke Chairgun App ? It lets you choose reticles and should give yo a rough idea of aimpoints etc.

    I haven't looked at chairgun.I've always set out targets at different ranges in 5yd increments then learned my aimpoints from that.but with the map6 ret they reckon if zeroed at 30yds on 6 mag then each aimpoint is already calibrated to an extra 5yds.that's based on .22 caliber around 11.5 ftlb. I will be checking it anyway but am just wandering if they are as good as they reckon.surely each rifle would be different?

    It's only spot-on at 6x magnification, so you have to learn the different aimpoints if you want use different mags, 6x isn't a bad figure to use though. I use 3x in buildings after rats but the range is generally so short aim points are pretty hypothetical.
    Also it's just a generalised set of values for the 'average' pellet, if you were using something really light or heavy for instance it would be off a bit. I've got an aim6 reticle on a .22 Lightning & it seems happy with that out to 30M with RWS Domes.

    Cheers,I went out today and zeroed it up at 20yds as it was really windy and peei g down.so I was shooting out of my mates stable.I'm having the rifle tuned this week as well so will worry about zeroing up at 30yds and learning how the aimpoints workout.I was very happy with the clarity of the optics though.as I bought it 2nd hand for 25 quid I wanted to know the scope was working ok.
