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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Bought a hatsan at44 a couple of weeks ago , finally got to zero the scope etc . Accuracy is as expected with a Pcp , near enough pellet on pellet at 25yards . Anyway put a chrono on it and an average of 10.1ftlb . If I wanted that sort of power I could have saved a few quid and bought a meteor . I bought(or thought I bought) a full power rifle so I expect full power .

    Can you honestly tell the difference between 10.1 and 11.5 FtLb? I can't in a real situation.

    Besides,better than 2 under than 2 over,and it's not that hard to change the power...but we can't discuss that

    different pellets give different power outputs - best check it with a few. also, the power may rise as the components bed in.
    and remember, power is second to accuracy

    Also, did you do a full power curve, or just a few shots? The peak power is usually somewhere in the middle of the pressure range, rather than when full as you may expect. And try a few different pellets if you can too, there can be a massive difference in muzzle energy with the pellet weight and how well they fit your barrel.

    Too much trajectory with mags , i had my DS set at 11.8 with them so i could shoot AA diablos at 11.1 !!!!! id like to see the rules altered . either max fps of .5 ftlbs error allowed with out prosecution if the pellets you use are under , ie if i get my rifle confiscated and checked and i have a tin of AA diablos at 11.5 then the rozzers use something like mags and they come in at say 12.2 im free and clear

    I have a new AT-44 10 Tactical (.177) and I'm very pleased with it. Had it chrono'd a couple of weeks ago and it's running in the mid 10's (with AA Field Diablo pellets) but accuracy isn't compromised at all....even managed to pull off a 73 yard kill shot on a knockdown FT! :D

    Like everyone's already said, ft/lbs is worked out from an equation based on the muzzle velocity of the pellet. Different weighted pellets will give different ft/lbs calculations.
