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.

    Anybody use a pellet sizer?

    i got one from UK Neil a while back, accuracy wise, I think it improved this a bit but I wouldn't like to put money on it:)

    One thing it is great for is damaged pellets, by pushing the head of one into the one with a deformed skirt, then through the sizer, I have little to no waste!

    the tin of exact express I'm using at present had more than the usual damaged pellets, but the sizer helps with the pellets that would normally be discarded:)

    I got one last week in 4.52 size and tested four different brands of pellets through it, and although all were 4.52 one brand took a lot more effort to push through.
    And as you damaged pellets were put right again, I squeezed some skirts almost flat and still it worked, I think if your going to do an hft session its worth doing.

    Pellet sizers can help, bt not as much as getting the right batch of pellet (jsb exact by far the best out there) for your barrel.

    ie.

    Both my Ev2 like di 46 Exact . I have tins in 4.51, 4.52 and 4.53 die 46. The 4.51 -.53 thing is a fantasy thing anyway, makes no difference as you can see, its the fact they are all die 46 that counts.
    However, one barrel likes them sized to 4.52. The other 4.50.

    UK Neil sizers are the best out there,. Chap in our club baught a 4.52 off ebay, my sized 4.52 fell straight through. We recon on a uk neil sizer it was squashing them down to arund 4.40!
    Made the pellet useless too!

    Terry Robb makes adjustable pellet sizers, imho if you are useing good quality pellets ie JSB's ect they are a waste of time.

    Of that I don't know as it don't really bother me. What does is getting the smallest groups I can and sizing has turned an average batch or Jsb into a good batch out to 55 yards.
