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.

  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.

    is it me,or are some pellet manufacturers ripping airgun shooters off ?
    iv got some brocock super diablo pellets to try and to me they look the same as the webley accupell and the Crossman ultras,so I have all 3 to try,and after a little search all 3 look the same and are the same weight,so are we being ripped off.
    and are there other pellets out there that are the same,just in a different tin and name on it.
    you can get all 3 from uttings and all at different prices

    webley accupells £7.99
    Crossman ultra £8.49
    brocock diablo £9.99

    Webley Accupells are Crosman Premier Domed, there are 3 levels of Crosman Pellet grades.

    1) Crosman Premier Cardboard box. These are all from one die, so virtually identical.

    2) Crosman Premier Ultra Magnums. From the same dies as 1, just they have worn a little bit.

    3) Crosman Premier Domed, the tail end of production before the die is scrapped!

    Accupells are number 3, Crosman Premier Ultra Magnums are number 2, Brocock pellets, no damned idea!

    The proof is in the pudding (or even main course if its putting meat on the table). Is there any difference shooting them?

    Of that type of pellet, I've only tried accupells and daystate li so far and if anything the accupells were slightly more accurate in my gun, but as it performs bettest with rws superfields I haven't been tempted to try the crosman branded versions.

    Brococks has it's pellets made via @ Deal from Crosmans - with their own Labeled Tins

    Same As Air Arms made by JSB's

    Pax Made Rangemasters for Daystates that sold just under £20.00 for 500 .177 pellets - Due to going through Two Distributers & Retailers

    Now Sold a Defiant HFT's around £12.00 per Box for 500 - Mostly Direct from Pax or ebay Slug-gun - As Design is a Pax Design

    Pax Makes Armex's - Made to their limited Choice . Lead Pellets

    Very Few Pellet Manufactures ;)

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    cant comment on the brocock pellets mate, but i know that pellet manufacturing/production is a v v expensive thing to set up. there are only an handful of manufacturers worldwide who, as well as making pellets for themselves, make pellets under different names/packaging. as an example, jsb and h&n make approx half of the pellets that are available (as well as their own brand).
    their own brand are usually better quality and are subject to more rigorous quality control processes - an example being h&n who make their own baracuda sport, weihrauch magnum and bisley magnum (virtually identical pellet but vastly differing quality)

    A bit off thread but back twenty odd years ago I used Crosman Premier in a cardboard box they were the best out my rapid 7. Now I use Accupell as I had no idea Premier were still made.

    Premier Ultra Magnums are available in quite a few shops, cardboard boxed are somewhat harder to find, I got mine from Fenland Rural Sports.
