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.

  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.

    Hi
    I’ve just been doing some experimenting with different pellets and wondered what most of you favour as the best! pellet.
    I hunt and I do HFT but i use .22 as i feel that the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to hunting and HFT.
    Ive been using H&N FTT's which are 14.66 in weight but i wondered what guys think of the trade of between having a heavier pellet with more accuracy which is less affected by wind and so on and delivers more energy down range than a lighter pellet. Compared to using a lighter pellet that’s affected more by wind and doesn’t have so much kinetic energy down range but has a flatter trajectory!
    Ive got various guns all HW's and they seem to favour a tighter fitting pellet and thus seem to get higher energy values.
    The reason i ask after using FTT's and then RWS superdomes and now im trying JSB Exacts, these three seem to be the most popular/consistent pellets around the FTT's seem to deliver more power and be more consistent than the other two. Im looking at using one pellet and tuning all my guns to suit that pellet, perhaps this is a bit over the top and a bit anal but im conscious of the legal limit and also accuracy and consistency and its a fine balance. I know not all guns like the same pellets, even ones of the same make and type but ive had readings with different pellets over the chrono that can vary buy over a ftlb so using one pellet that suits all uses and guns seems to be the way to go then there’s no chance of using another pellet and accidently taking the gun over the legal limit.
    I know this is probaly over thinking the issues as 99.9% of people will buy the pellets that the shops has/recommends when they buy the gun and will probaly stick to that brand/make for the life of the gun but after serving 22 years in the army in a tank regiment and shooting various weapons and armoured vehicles ballistics have kind of warn off on me and now i cant help myself lol

    You will struggle to find a 1 pellet fits all situation,we tried and have half of our guns running on JSB Exacts and the other half run on several other types.

    Yeah know what you mean but all the HW's (HW77k, 2x Vmach HW97's, HW57, Vmach HW80k, and HW100k) i have seem to like FTT's which also gives the highest power output and rule of thumb, i presuming that as they are all .22 that all the barrels are made by HW or whatever company makes them for HW and they are all the same spec, give or take!
    I know there will always be a variation even between barrels made on the same production line but after doing quite a lot of reading im taking it that ive got the two favoured pellets, FTT's and JSB's?
