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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    '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.'

  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.

    As today was totally breeze free... and I mean totally! I did a 15 yard pellet test with my dad's new Weihrauch HW99S .177. Granted it's only had around 100 pellets through it so it's not bedded in yet, and I'm a newbie so my aim is a bit pants - but I fancied an excuse for a plink in the garden :D

    5 shots of each pellet aimed at the bullseye at 15 yards. Gun rested on sand bag and gripped lightly.

    I'll repeat the test again with the best 2 pellets, at a distance of 25 yards - and this will determine which pellet we'll be buying for this gun :up:

    Anyway, here's the results from today......

    ps. ignore the flier on the H&N as this was definitely my error - I then fired a 6th shot which went into the existing group hole.

    Some nice groups there.

    My HW99s in .177 did this group, 5 shots at 40 yards, benchrested using Air Arms Field pellets:

    They have astonishing accuracy potential which appears easier to tap into than some other models :up:

    Have fun with it :)

    Cheers mate!

    That's at 40 yards?? I'm impressed :up:

    Ah dam, I forgot to add a penny or something for scale... basically the blue circle is a smidgeon larger than a penny.

    40 yards, yes, but bench rested.

    That's amazing mate!

    I did the same test with my new S200. I'll post the groups in another thread.... but to be honest the pellet group sizes are all around the same - with a 'slight' victory going to the AA Fields. I'll need to repeat the S200 over a greater distance to determine the best pellet I think.
