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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Well I have just bought 8 tins of exacts with different die numbers. Hopefully going to find the magic one.
    As a footnote I compared them visually and they are indeed slightly different.
    Waiting for a windless day now.
    If you want pellets then put Olga kimla in Google and she will sort you out.

    Yes I’ve bought 60 tins from Olga this year (expecting [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules] to have happened and screwed up jsb supplies more that normal to the UK) a joy to deal with and despite the £ falling buying two sleeves at a time resulted in an average cost of £7.14 per tin

    I get the opposite with AADF's and JSB Express, the "Express" appear to produce better groups than the AADF's on paper but the real world says something entirely different, AADF's (for me) produce better long range accuracy, less susceptible to wind drift over longer ranges and retain far more energy than the Express...

    I guess what I'm saying is, stick to the AADF's... :thumb:

    You have shown the less important face of the tins .

    The one that matters is the other side with the Die and batch number

    Good price per tin, but their shipping charges are 13 euros to the EU for up to 2kg in weight. That's another £11.46 on conversion today which makes the price per tin higher than I can get here in the UK (Voymir). Is this the same in your experience Bagster66?

    Postscript: I guess if you are buying 10 tins at a time, then the shipping would work out OK on average. Personally, I get great results with JSB RS in my HW95K so it is a favourite pellet choice for me.

    I live in France so the postage is a little cheaper, she did tell me that it's best to buy 16 tins in .177 to get the most out of the postage though

    Had exactly the problem, bent skirts, deformations and not accurate although i have found that my Weihrauch 110K likes heavy pellets but it doesn't account for the amount of damaged ones, approx 50 in the tin was thrown away.

    Batch 54 do work well. :thumb:

    Anyone shooting Steyr or Air Arms I recommend batch 46. 4.53 from year 18 or 19. Best I have tried in ages.
    I get a chance to test JSB's a couple of times a year, I always test at 25 and 50 m, field target sitting. Batch 46 got last years gold medal from me and a few others. 50 sleeves sold in one day!

    Happy testing guys.
