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.

    It may vary with calibre but a JSB variant is likely to be a good starting point.

    Aadf are fairly soft so tend to be happy in most guns. This makes them an excellent place to start. Jsb’s range are also often well regarded.

    My HW100 is .177 calibre and loves JSB Exact pellets in 4.51
    But it seems that what suits one gun does not necessarily suit another even if it is the same make and model.
    Enjoy experimenting.

    JSB Exacts 15.89g I’d start with, and probably finish there.

    HW say their barrels prefer 5.51

    Thanks for the reply. I have bought a tin of accupell and a tin of VMX from this manufacturer amongst all the others I guess I'll just have to shoot and find out for myself. Cheers

    after testing quite a few jsb variants ive changed to daystate rangemaster sovereign (which are jsb i know) but tightened the groups up noticeably, but each gun will be different and youll have fun testing each and every brand no doubt chap

    I work on a lot of HW100's and I almost exclusively find JSB Exacts the most efficient power and shot count wise, but here lies a problem.

    When people send their guns to me they send their preferred pellet brand for setting up. The trouble is you set the gun up with JSB's and then fund the owners pellet choice is much lower in power and consistency. I currently have an HW100 for a Titanium tube upgrade, it's putting out 11.5-11.6 with Exacts (more than I'd normally be happy with) and with FTT it's doing 10.2-10.4!

    Imagine what power with Exacts if the gun was set up with FTT at 11.5 ft/lbs!

    My advice would be try JSB Exacts or their brand equivalent such as Air Arms Diablo Field, Daystate, Weihrauch etc. The latter would be my first port of call.
