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.

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

Pellet Surprise...

    Wednesday afternoon - dry, bright, not too cold or windy - and likely my last chance to get some gun-time this side of 2020. I'd hoped to get some serious hunting done, as I apparently now have a reputation to maintain. Unfortunately, the local wildlife had other ideas - after an hour or so mooching round, I'd only seen a couple of woodies, neither of which being kind enough to hang about and offer me the chance of a shot.

    With the absence suitable quarry, I decided to break out the 57 for a spot of impromptu pellet testing. Now my stock of .177 has got pretty low - I've been using the .22 99s almost exclusively for the past couple of years and can't remember the last time I bought any .177 ammo - though I did still have a few different brands in sample pack quantities. My pal had already tried RWS Superdome and BSA Nasties, neither of which grouped particularly well. Hunter Extreme had performed well when I'd tested them previously, but I was itching to the QYS 8-grainers.

    Setting up at somewhere around 18 yards and shooting from a well supported position, I sent half a dozen QYS pellets downrange - and was rewarded with a group less than half the size of the one made with the Extremes,(albeit 2" high of the mark). AADE and H&N Sniper Light also grouped well. The excellent performance of the QYS in the 57 got me wondering what the 99s would make of them.

    Now, my 99s - shooting RS - is the most accurate springer that I've ever owned, more than capable of printing sub-moa groups, but with the 1.5x on top I wasn't going to be hitting bottle caps at 60 yards. At 18 yards however, group size with QYS seemed easily on par with RS. The firing cycle was utterly sublime though, it almost felt like I was shooting a 30s. It looks to me that JSB might have some serious competition from China.

    Really must get some more of them. If they perform well against quarry, QYS may well become my new favourite pellet. I just wish they were available in .22...

    QYS are building quite a fan-base on this forum. I'll try them as soon as my supply of JSBs has come to an end.

    They’re absolutely amazing in my 77

    The 99 loved them despite feeling loose

    Great in the TX too (which strangely loves heavies!)

    Picked up some QYS a couple of weeks ago. I’ll have a play over Christmas and I’m quite excited about it.

    I got some from two guys on here @jesim1 and @nevadacowboy, both types went really well out of my steyr. Only had one short session at range with them, but it was too windy that day to give a proper indication. I will test them when it's not windy as they look really well made.
