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.

    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.

    Could be the pellet, size, i.e. onthe bottom of your pellet tin, if u r using .177:up: there should be a little paper sticker, with 4.51... if it's marked 4.52, the pellets u r using is 2big, hope this helped. Andy

    Like I said, before I use bisley magnums in sub 12ftps (S410_4.51) for hunting, unlike a springer using a heavy-er pullet in a pcp improves velocity, then use a lighter pellet, like u have already, and have to re-scope for targets

    Air Arms 400 & 410 barrels are board out so as to use 4.51 size pellets, the 4.52 are for other types & makes, of airguns...like in the past I have used bisley magnums...also on the bottom of the tin 4.51, but not all manufacturers of pellets do this?:confused:, has that helped you son, keep smiling, and happy shooting, catch u later.

    what a load of crap........the basic,s of it is this.......barrels are like women no two are exactly alike... some barrels when new will like a 4.50 or a 4.51 or even a 4.52.......some barrels which have had a bit of use may like 4.52 or even 4.53 at the end of the day you have to find a pellet that your barrel likes which could be 4.50 , 4.51, 4.52, or 4.53 also they could be airarms or bisleys or h&n,s or even prometheus( maybe not).......what i would suggest is that if the gun is new you should start with 4.51,s of various type,s ............ if still no joy then up the head size but try a tin of each and see how you get on

    I like women with tight barrels, I said 4.51...now u say 4.51..the lad has tried 4.52, and she/sorry the barrel didnt like it...ok so we agree on somthing...the main thing is the proof will be in the shooting.:p:D

    the barrel in question may not have liked 4.51,s in airarms but in daystate,s it may be the right pellet.....what i,m saying is get a selection of each head size try them before moving on to a larger head size..........especially if the gun is new
