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.

  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.

  6. 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.

Non lead pellets?

    Gents,

    Here in California we just got a ban on lead bullets in a highly questionable bid to 'make safe' the environment where anything that remotely looks like a California Condor is believed to have visited since the dinosaurs died out. .22 RF is under attack, pellets are sure to follow eventually.

    There is even now a real need for effective hunting pellets that don't contain lead as private areas are already closing to lead pellets. It could easily become state wide (some might say it surely will eventually) in much the manner steel shot was mandated.

    Sorry for the long winded lead up, but I think you can guess the question: Does anyone have positive experience, with performance approaching lead accuracy wise? We need it both at the seven fpe .177 end as well as the bigger cals at 50 fpe and more, any advice would be most welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as i know the best tin pellets, when it comes to accouracy is the Terminator pellets, when your aigun is FAC, but i hear feom a lot of others that have 12 fpe airguns that sll the round nose pellets are pretty accurate too.
    The problem is that they only come in 2 calibers at the moment, 1.77 and .22

    So for me the best tin pellets are the TM1 and TM2, because all my airguns are FAC

    Thanks very much....

    These are the Tin 'Dynamics' pellets that come in cardboard boxes? I ordered four different versions of .177s from the UK (scary postage, more than the pellets...) none were worth shooting in several guns. It seems they have problems with choked barrels, or so the maker told me. Lately, I've ordered a couple of the .22 versions (single vendor here), only one in stock, but haven't had a chance to try them as yet (I keep getting distracted).

    I hunt small pest birds at 25 yards or a bit more a fair bit, I'm going to need excellent accuracy. Inch size groups at 25 aren't gonna cut it. And I got some twice that size in otherwise accurate guns (when shooting JSBs or Crosman Preimers for instance).

    Thanks again for the input, the search continues.....

    Yes i am talking about the dynamic pellets.
    I only buy the .22 17 grain and the 1.77 9.5 grain. All my airguns have chocked barrels and yest they are not as good as the JSB Barracuda Match, and i get about 1" at 50 meters which is good enough for me, maybe others can shot better than me and get better results, i do not know.
    I do not shot many of them my self now as there is not problems with lead pellets and they are a lot cheaper and a little better in accuracy.

    I still say that the price is robbery for what you get, but then again anything they make ,even the lead pellets are the most expensive, out there.
    It is shame about the posting, maybe you should get a friend to post them for you.
