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.

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.

    Have I just gotten a bad batch or has the quality of these pellets gone down the drain?
    On average one in 3 has a deformed skirt on every tin I have opened
    After the 3rd tin I've returned the rest and got some Bisley mags aka Barracuda match

    Now I'm back to tight groups at 27 yards zero
    Much more consistent pellet

    I have had a lot of damaged skirts from undamaged tins of .22. The .177 have been ok. AA fields in both calibres also ok.

    A lot depends on where you source them from, packaging/handling etc

    Personally i get mine from Intershoot/BAR, always come well packaged :up:

    I've had tins of 200 in .22 turn up with a third of the pellets damaged as the tins were bent However I bought a tin of 500 off eBay this week and they all look perfect. If the seller takes the time to wrap and package them well it makes all the difference.

    Bad handling by the courier can do this, i used to work in the post office years ago and the way some of the packages were just thrown about used to make me cringe.Some pellets are softer than others and are easily distorted so if they are not bubble wrapped and boxed they have no chance of reaching you in the same condition as the left the manufacturers.

    I always buy a whole sleeve
    There was no damage to the tins and it was only the last 5 tins having the damaged skirts
    That's why I thought a it may be a bad batch
