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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    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.

    Its raining, my wife isn't in and I'm mucking about with shooting in the house.
    On the hunting section i'd mentioned i had surprisingly found RSW super hollow points to be tighter grouping than my usual H&N FTT .22 for my HW100. I had bought them for close range ratting but they were great out to 35m.
    This pic is the penetration of the H&N....narrow and deep therefore more wounding potential

    This one is the RWS....wider and less penetrating therefore more killing potential

    Super H points are my favourite ratting pellet, as well as being accurate they stay in the rat rather than going right through & making a hole in the roof or whatever, 12ftlb's isn't much but dumping all of it in the rat can't hurt either.

    I once had a totally unfeasible ricochet & shot one of my wifes Khaki Cambell duck's in the head, at £25 a pop, so I've learned my lesson.

    I'd never thought of doing this to check the penetration etc with various pellets . Looks like good fun as well as being informative . That's clay going on my shopping list :D

    Heh, awesome!

    I've been making a pellet trap at work and have been wondering what to put in front of it when I get bored of paper targets but don't want a live target. I was thinking cheap garden ornament tatt like gnomes or cutesy animals that you see in pound shops, but at the same time no point in them exploding after the first shot and then having to pick up lots of tiny pieces of plastic.
