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.

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.

    I've tried the various JSB pellets from RS, Express, Standard 8.44 and now
    will be giving the JSB Heavy's a proper try out.

    MY Hw 100 likes them and my Impact came with 6 tins of these pellets.
    I use .177 mostly because of the easy hold overs and under and have
    become used to this pellet shooting rabbits to 50 yards and further with no issues..

    My question is to those that have gone onto a heavier pellet from a mid range one
    did they find it as easy to shoot.

    I use these pellets but find on higher mag aim points are very much needed.

    ok if shooting at x 6 to 10 mag.

    Great accuracy and hitting power.

    Swapped around a bit mate and ended up back on the heavies. Bantam absolutely loves them although another squizzer had an argument with one earlier and he was none to chuffed. :thumb:

    I have been using JSB heavies recently in my HW100, AA.400 and AA.410, and have been getting some fabulous results. They are very accurate pellets. :up:

    I did a little tweak on my old 100 and it loved the jsb in 10.33 ,liked the mags to . But the jsb gave a bit more power . So that’s what it was set to very consistent at 11.6 .

    As it happens I tried the jsb heavy in a Walther century today , only at 20 meters . They seem more accurate than the jsb exact.

    All the pcp's I've owned have done well with the heavies and the exacts....in any calibre.. I'm having great results with the Pb free ones as well from jsb.. Especially the 0.25 (16ish gr) calibre ones

    I'd have said the same until I tried JSBH in my TX200HC. They are very consistent - as good as any lighter pellets - but the trajectory is not as flat, obviously. My TX200 Mk3 can't handle them at all - piston bounce!

    JSB Heavies or QYS Streamlined. Both epic, way better than the lighter offerings.

    Jsb Heavies for me, great hunting pellet.
    As I mainly hunt and just the occasional paper punch to check zero I'm thinking of using the Jsb Monster 13.5 grain in .177 for even more knock down as I occasionally get a pass thru using heavies.

    For hunting (I only hunt and do no target shooting) don't rule out the lightweight pellets.
    PCP or springer in .177 I use JSB express, in .22 JSB RS
