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.

    At £7.49 for just 200 I'd expect to kill three rabbits at once for that price lol. I do like RWS pellets myself though, but my Hatsan 60s .22, loves RWS Superdomes @ just £9.50 for 500 lol :D

    They're made of tin, maybe the small head size is to get them through the choke.
    A few years back I had the possibility to shoot rats in a grain store, the proviso being I couldn't use lead as a stray pellet could end up in something's diet.
    I tried tin & zinc including plastic sabot types & all grouped like a B B gun. 20mm at 20M is what I want but the best was about 30-35mm.
    If RWS think they're worth marketing I'll give them a go, I've a lot of respect for the brand & there seems to be a long term EEC policy to completely ban lead so I would like a viable alternative, pricey though.

    With all the money you spend on buying and then losing when swapping rifles why do you want to save a few quid on pellets that maybe of no use to you, stick with what you know work.

    . do them for 6.50 a tin of 200, .22 is 7.50 a tin of 150, which is pretty much the going rate, as I said, a bit pricey.

    I never chronoed them but I bet they were going fast, one thing,
    I tried the sabot type jobbies first, Prometheus I think, but didn't know about the plastic fouling issue so that messed up the following groups, they were pretty horrendous. When I finally got a clean barrel they were a lot better but still prety dire, this is with an assortment of BSA barrels & Gunpower, so a Walther barrel?
    if you read through the 3 pages this chap in America seems to have had more luck, with German barrels HW & FWB, but about 2" at 20M is what I found.
