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.

    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.

    Word on the street is that John Rothery (owner of the Bisley brand and sole supplier of such products) have discontinued these pellets in .20 calibre. In this size the range was restricted to Pest Control (no great loss IMO) and Superfield (I know some like these pellets).

    If you have a gun in .20 that likes the above pellets - I'd strongly advise you stock up on them now as it looks like you won't be able to get them for much longer!

    EDITED: As originally applied to H&N pellets as well, which I've since found is not the case ;)

    The superfields are a decent pellet. I know alot were put off like me because of the dimple in the head of the pellet.

    Too right, this was a 10-shot, 30 yard group, stood with support from my Theoben gas ram Taunus in .20 with Superfields.

    Could be that they are not getting enough orders to order in another Batch

    And trying the water to see if Shooters demand another batch ;)

    I read on a US forum where US manufacturers are stopping making .2 pellets as it is regarded by them as a "dead calibre" (their quote not mine so don't shoot the messenger or defenestrate him).

    Recent issue is there are different firms making Barrels

    So you now have the need for different Heads sizes as in .177 & .22

    With a Faction being sold in .20 than in .177 & .22

    Also Manufactures want payment up front to manufacture a batch for trader -

    Who might not be keen to layout the Funds and take many months before they get their money back

    ***************************

    Not forgetting that I post recently - that Pax rediscovered a few boxes of Logan Penetrators 15.5gr - Boxed in 400's
    Which I can do for a very good Price ;) There is about 100 Boxes in All.
