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.'

  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.

    i think my AA fields are too "squishy" to use on crows.

    any ideas on .22 pellets (preferably 16grain) that have good penitration to drop crows, rooks, magies and so on

    i was thinking more along the lines of pointies but not that accurate are they?

    having said that when you look at big caliber sniper rounds they are pointed, probably for the piercing affect but they must be accurate to some degree:confused:

    I've had a lot of overpenetration of blacks with pointed rounds. Tried them in an old airsporter, so the power was probably low, and it still went straight through them

    Hi Gunner. Try the AA Hunter pellets. Equally as accurate as the field pellets but more suited to hunting, They weigh 16 grain. :up:

    Have it your way, but just remember this...assuming you're not FAC, you have 12 ft/lbs max. The heavier the pellet, the slower it'll travel...the energy is the same. Add to that the fact that the bigger the pellet is, the greater the area that same power will dissipate over, giving less penetration....or maybe no penetration at all.

    The old addage, .177 for feather, .22 for fur.

    H&N FTT's. I've dropped many a gobby crow with them. I can't tell you what grain they are as I don't really care about pellet weight.

    As for sniper rifle rounds, well that big lump of powder behind the round works wonders with long range power.

    i will try the penatrators in that case to see what happens.

    i tried the old .177 for feather but that didnt go to plan, penetration was fine but no thump it it. needed to do a second shot on it
