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.

    Thank you.

    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.'

  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.

    It depends on what kill zone diameter you wish to work to.

    I like to work to 20mm in. 22 and 15mm in. 177. As your using. 22 I would suggest 23 meters which is around 25 yards. This will give you a pretty good chance of a accurate hit from around 11 yards to 27 yards without having to really worry too much about hold under or over past your primary zero.

    I zero my .22 97 at 25 yards.When I was a kid we all had .22's and we all zeroed at that distance.

    With a .22 then 25 yards works best for me. (I use 16 grain AA Diabolo Field in my HW100)
    At 10x magnification on the scope, that gives a 5p sized "kill zone" hit at 15 yards and up to 25 yards, and some easy to remember hold over points over 25 yards.
    29 yards (say 30yds) 1 mil dot
    34 yards (say 35 yds) 2 mil dots
    39 yards (say 40 yds) 3 mil dots
    45 yards 4 mil dots.

    I work in a "different" way to most people though, and the figures work out differently with different air rifles (and pellets), but the same principle can be used for any rifle. For example with my HW97 in .22..... with 25 yards being the "standard" distance.....
    I zero at 25 yards.... and then adjust the scope magnification that will give me the memorable "5 yard" increments of mil dots holdover. That happens to be just under 11x mag. Then I tend to leave the magnification at that setting. Once you start to vary the scope magnification in the field, then the mil dot holdover calculations go to pot of course.

    Cheers
