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.

    Because they both work out about the same price, but one bought in bulk, which is better of the two, Accupell or JSB Diablo Exact.

    I hear good things about both. H&NFTT were pretty accurate but a little hard.

    I'm looking to settle down with a single pellet, used for long range hunting at legal limit power (Cometa 300 springer)

    Air arms diablo field were going to be another option, but I can't get hold of them as easy.

    pellet choice

    i personally would forget the accupell, or crapupell as they are known. they are a very dirty pellet, however saying that they do work well in some rifles. do a group test at the ranges you want to shoot at and decide from there... dont forget with a springer the lighter the pellet the more power you will get so please once you,ve made your choice of pellet, put it acros a chrony just to make sure your legal.....:)

    So are they only crap cos they're dirty?

    I refused to go near them, but people keep ramming them down my neck as being the best

    AirArms much better?

    different rifle barrels like different pellets. accupell are a very dirty pellet and foul up barrels fairly quick.look in a tin and you,ll see what i mean also get some out on a peice of kitchen towel and roll them about abit,towel will turn grey...


    if they are washed and prepared they can( in some barrels) be extremely accurate... imo

    If I can get them, I'm going to look at Air Arms, I like the accurate/soft combo, shoul dbe a good comprimise over the hollow points that fail me.

    Got 600 hollows to finish though, see if i can get them to do anything useful !

    Those penetrators, fit very tight, will that be a bad thing?

    Had some more fun with the bullet shaped ones last night.

    Took a pot shot down the field (as you do out of boredom) at a tree about 70-80 yards away (or the limit of my x9 zoom, whatever that is)

    I aimed a little high to counteract the drop in height, not too much but the ammount I'd use for the H&N FTT to hit target (a fat parallel branch)...

    fired..... the pellet flew straight over the top, where I aimed!

    Now thats flat!

    I will be ordering some more for sure - I just wish I'd noted if it was the lead or the tin bullet I used - more testing required I predict
