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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Sorry, but I can’t make my mind up as to whether I’m impressed or not??

    I think a bullseye at 200 yards would excite me more.

    Wow that is a long way.
    Its an impressive achievement, its a World record

    But like @Mike Watkins I can't work out whether I'm actually that impressed, a 1/2 group at 400m...that would be impressive.
    Even the 5000yd Cheytac/BMG shooters actually look though the scope but the ballistics don't allow for a direct line of sight hence the periscope -prism on the optics and a 32" monitor

    Tried to input the data on Chairgun....it threw a wobbler and re-zeroed at 267 and maxed out at 1000.
    Even then at 1000m thats a 300 MOA drop.

    Closest I could get from a ballistic calculator is 485 MOA-217 YARD drop @ 1550yd on a 880yd zero with a terminal energy of 12.1 ft.lbs.

    Steve, I think I read that there was 280m of hold over and flight time of 7.7second.

    As you say, a bit pointless but impressive, I have to say, I really like the look of that gun.

    He had a good few attempts. Given the same equipment, I think a good few on here could achieve the same result personally ;)

    Wasn't sure on the ammo Pete, either the long 61gr boattail or experimental 31gr slug...which could account for the extra elevation.
    I blinked a few times at the blurry fading text on the video and fast forwarded the standard dramatic you-tube music ...second look...230m, 585moa drop.

    Guess the lighter slug was considerably faster but less efficient?

    Yep, interesting gun, products and components, well worth a few minutes reading up on.
    The conventional R700 / M24 rifle styling is kinda refreshing compared to the blocky tactical guns usually seen.

    Compressed air driven 300bar pump?
    +/-15mins for a 400cc cylinder though...assuming you have a compressor to hand

    Inline bottle regs look like modified paintball gear?

    Is it really that impressive for 87.5 ft/lbs to randomly hit something over 18" square in what is basically a ballistic lob rather than a 'shot'...:shrug:.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean it's actually worth doing.

    what is more impressive is the stable fps from that gun

    minimal speed variation

    That'd be because you're entering made-up data ...
    This using MERO ...

    Stated data: (about 1:30 in)

    Environment:
    Temp 3C
    Pres = 992 mBar
    Humidity 75%

    Projectile:
    BC[G7] = 0.149
    Dia = 0.22 Inch
    Weight = 61 Grain

    Rifle/scope:
    MV = 245 m/s
    ZR(near) = 37m
    SH = 14 cm

    MERO SCreenshot.png

    It's the assumed BC[G7] that makes it all possible.
    A 10-shot 1/2" dispersion at 200 Yards would be far more impressive.

    George
