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 bought the above scope yesterday with a full length HW100 in 177. I had it at the range today and was only getting 50 shots off a full charge (book says 110). It's running 11.02 with jsb exact 8.44 but the AT has been removed (2009 model). Now I have ordered a regulator gauge which will be here tomorrow so I will look for a guide when it arrives to hopefully fix the shot count.

    As for the scope, at 25yds to 35yds it's spot on. Put a target out at 60yds and the impact is 2 mil dots higher? Never had a scope like this and haven't got a clue how the turrets work nevermind zero them (never been a target shooter). I'm guessing its been zerod at a silly range (over 100yds)?

    Are you altering the zoom when shooting the 60y target?

    I used the whole zoom range when at the range with no issues. I only tried 60yds at 10x. I'm guessing something like 15x would be spot on, 20x lower etc?

    Well on a second focal plane scope which yours is, your zero is only set on that mag setting, if you change your zoom/mag you alter you poi. I don't change my mag, I may zoom in to identify a target etc, but them I'd zoom back out to my zerod mag setting.

    That makes sense, I'll give it a try. I have friends with big cal rifles and the last time we were shooting targets @ 600yds they were calculating the wind and referencing a little book to make turet adjustments so I just assumed this would be similar. Too much to learn :(

    Thanks for curing my headache, I'll take a pen and paper and have a mess at the range on my next visit as I reckon I can use different mags for different ranges if it's poi shifting

    The mil dots are only accurate for a certain mag, zoom past that & they are too far apart, zoom back & too close, like a Hawke with a map6 reticle is designed for 6x magnification.

    If you had a first focal plane scope the mil dots stay accurate at any magnification, the downside is a fine, as in thin, reticle at 6x is a bit on the thick side if you crank the scope up to 20x - & they cost a fair bit more too.
