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.

    they are now branded as webley accupels and are not made by crossman anymore the ones i found today are the original ones with the us warnings on the bottom of the tin which are the best ones the newer onew are softer and you tend to get quite a few deformed pellets in the tin with the older ones i've never come accross a bad pellet

    but that could be the old ones down fall.

    to hard = no deformation and thats no good for hunting:down:
    you get away with it for headshots but very bad for chest shots

    may give the new ones a try then with the T-10 when im testing her out.
    the AA field work well with the 410 sono diet change for that.

    heres me on about the T-10 with the wage im on itle be a long time!!

    I like accupels because i like my gun tuned down to 10.5ftlbs it tames a springer reduces recoil and noise and by using a nice light pellet like the accupell i get the same impact velocity as i would with a normal medium pellet at 11.5ftlbs

    you lose the momentum though:eek:

    accys are quite hard but if you lose that little bit of power i guess you need that little bit more penetration:rolleyes:

    a slow moving pellet makes lots more dammage than a faster pellet

    You don't lose anything i've spent years testing this and researching it for pcps it doesn't matter but with spring guns a lighter pellet and reduced power gives better results if i were to use the same weight pellet i would use at 11.5 ftlbs then there would be a loss of power but by using the lighter pellet i compensate for the lack of power and gain the benefits of a sweeter shooting gun i rarely get penetration in .22 just a nice solid knock down smack

    same reason that i use .22

    shooting ferals out to 35yds needs no penetration.
    well not much then

    it only makes a difference with spring guns it makes the recoil smoother more like a rifle then an airgun and allows you to shoot more accuratly essentially by detuning and using sa light pellet i'm incorporating some of the performance ellements of a pcp as with the detuned rifle you can actually rest it on a solid surface and get reasonably consistant groups
