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.

    Anyone used these? Picked up a pack the other day and haven't had time to really test them.
    I did a basic test firing at 20 yds into a sawn piece of timber.
    The Pentrator dug in and stayed put whereas the AA Diablo Field I normally used made a dent but bounched out.
    So they seem to do what they say on the tin......
    Am using .22 by the way.

    maby good for feathered stuff like crows or whatever.

    they are . for chest shots because they are quite long but be careful of over penetration

    i'm guessing they dont deform well?

    if they penetrate well like on the tin then they could be good for birds especially seeing as .22 isnt the best penatrator.

    personally for feral pigeon shooting i use soft lead pellets but will want to try sharper and harder pellets when i move on to rooks in may.

    i dont think these fit in multishot rifles:confused:

    Yeah cheers mate - that's why I got them, failed to stop a couple of black things lately at longer ranges:mad:
    They don't deform at all - the one I fired into the block of wood is largely still the same as it went in!!

    Will post later in the weekend when I've had a good blast with them.

    I had a few boxes of them, in .22 and in 1.77....they both perform pretty good.
    They are actually one of the hardest lead pellet in the market so they do penetrate more.

    I cannot remember finding any damaged pellets and if there was one or two it must of been only a little.
    All brands have damaged pellets every now and then

    ive been using AA field pellets a lot and had about 5 deformed pellets in 5 tins. the last tin i purchased, half of them were deformed, i was pretty p****d off becuase i had paid £9.25 for around 250 instead of 500! and i had to waste my time searching through a tin of lead. i hope my next tin isn't so bad.

    I also shoot the 16 grain AA pellets which really are JSB's but i never had a more than 3 -4 pellets that were bad in a tin.
    I have seen a few posts like yours about them but for me is just a different story and i have gone through about 40-50 tins up to now.
    I also have then delivered i never go to shops to buy them.
    I guess i am lucky

    To be fair it was hit in the middle of the back and came out just underneath the crop, the exit wound was small suggesting little deformation of the pellet.

    I'm sold on these things now - went back up this afternoon and bagged a crow and a jake in 20 mins. The sound these pellets make when they hit is awesome! Everything I've aimed at I've hit, everything I've hit has stayed seriously hit:D:D:D.
