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.'

    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 for hollow look at bisley pest controll and pointed look at RWS ones I think they are 14 grains.

    BSA huntsman look tidy too, also I think BSA pellets are rumoured to work well in them, or am I thinking of something else.
    Could be wasp pellets actually.:confused:

    the huntsman pellets look good anyeay

    pellets .22 why not?

    Well I have been thinking of doing that,a nice light pellet.
    rws do a card cutter at 11.9 grms in .22 and you could get near .177 fps,
    now could be nice for hunting.
    It is said that .177 is better for hunting( I don't):p,so why not use a lighter pellet,seems the right way to go and keep your trusty ,22 and let the ladys keep there .177's ;);) fans & Censored come to mind:rolleyes:

    To quote A1, well said that man!.
    If you want a lighter pellet then buy a .177!.
    The lighter the weight of pellet, the less terminal velocity.
    Say no more!.

    just drop to 16 grains.
    just going from 21 down to 16 will have a big difference and you still have good momentum with it.

    21grains of pain is just overkill:D

    pellets .22 why not?

    That is not what we are talking about,I can see you like .177,good for you but what the thread was on about was the wieght of pellets for a .22.
    Also you need more air to push a .177 pellet out as a .22 pc gun will push out more shots per charge so why change your trusty .22.
    A .177 is the dogs on the range ,nuff said, but leave the .22 for hunting,
    It's funny that the yanks and us use large snipper rounds ,cant see them using a range rounds out in the field,thay want to kill it not have a runner.

    pellets

    bisley mags are 21.40 i think,
    rws superpoints are 14.40,
    quite a bit lighter m8.
    ive used these several times with good results,
    but a lot of people dont rate pointed pellets,
    could be worth a try m8

    cheers al
