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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Quick hijack on the back of this thread (apologies Mikey): has/does anyone use heavy .177 in a break barrel springer or are they all PCP or FAC? Curious because I'm just about to re-enter .177 laser beam country and I've got used to the heavier pellet characteristics of .20 & .22.

    Try the H&N Barracuda Hunter Extremes. I find them just as accurate as FTTs but with a little drop, and they hit very hard indeed!

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    bisley magnum 10.65 gr
    crosman premier ultramagnum 10.5 gr
    weihrauch magnum 10.3 gr
    daystate ft heavy 10.25 gr

    out of the above, we tried them all and we prefer the weihrauch and crosman - accurate, and hit like a ton of bricks

    I'll second that. They have half inch drop from aa field @ 30 yards and are just as accurate in my hw97. The aa field produced 11.7 ft/lb and the hunter extremes give 11.5

    Nunga - we don't have the luxury of the velocity required over here. For your 15.75gn pellet we are limited to 585 feet /sec MAXIMUM. Your 25.7gn Magnums we would have the just dropping out of the muzzle at 455 fps MAXIMUM and to be on the safe side you would set the rifle up for 450fps.

    To be honest, with no power limit I would be sending 18gn - 21gn .22s out at around 925 - 950fps. High accuracy, plenty of power and plenty of smack on impact.

    yea i forgot about that. how about the Gamo TS-10. they are only 10.49gr they are a good all round pellet. Or you can try the H&H silver point 11.57gr, these are good up to around 30 yards then tend to drop off after that but they do hit very hard.

    I believe the Original Crossman premiers where 7.9 grain and the same as the modern Daystate Ranger master Li`s.
