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.

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.

    Here is a quick test i did using the Zbroia Kozak, to compare the Hades with the Heavy's.
    I used the Kozak as it's not pellet fussy..



    Has anybody had any success using these in .177 without flyers?
    I find them very inconsistent in any barrel / rifle.
    Heavy's No1 for me..

    I’d put a new scope on my Brocock Concept and was sighting it in, only 15 yds but I was using Doabalo exact monster .177 when it sighted in I thought I’d forgot to load it as it as all were in the same hole!!!
    Tried some hades ok not but not as good

    Yes mate on a bi-pod and a bag under rear of stock. To eliminate human error as much as poss. Really not impressed with the Hades, groups are like a small choked shotgun, in everything ive tried really.
    :facepalm: and I bought a full sleeve of these things..

    Heavys for me too, I found as you do Hades in .177 are more prone to fly (I find them fairly reliable in .22 though), getting heavys isn't easy though -most places seem to be sold out at the moment :rolleyes:

    Had 3 tins of hades. All shot through the single shot pcp and springers. One in every 5 pellets just falls into the barrel rather than needing thumbed in.

    Currently using my tins to bed in a newly tuned springer. They won't be used at the pellet testing stage, there's no point.

    I'll use the tins I have for chrono-testing as and when I need to go back to it -they aren't reliable enough for pest control (for me at least), are no use for target practice because of the flyers, so all they are good for is firing into a stuffed box for tuning regulator/hammer spring preload if/when I need to again :shrug:

    .. A good thing though is I've been given some .177 pellets to try, that I am told will fly straight and are reliable (and currently available :D ) so I'll see how I go with those, when I run out of heavys ;)

    Be well fella :thumb:

    Yep come to the conclusion, Hades in .177 are rubbish. Far to many people reporting the same problem's, of regular flyers. And I have also tried in lots of different rifles/barrels, same results. My Kozak, will shoot anything, but these, same flyers every 2-3 shots. Heavies for me, in the Kozak anyway.. :up: Cant miss whatever the range :D..
