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.

Pellets - would you spend time?

    Hi all,

    I've read a lot of threads where people have gone through different brands of pellets to suit their rifle, and a couple of days ago it was my turn to find "the pellet" for my HW100KT. I have been using H&N FTT's for a while, to good effect, but I felt I could get tighter groups. I purchased the usual suspects - RWS Superdomes, JSB Exact, Crosman Premier Ultra, Bisley Long Range Gold (but forgot the accupells).

    I cleaned the barrel, filled with air, shot 30 shots through and then did the following group with H&N FTT's .22

    View attachment 94363

    I then cleaned the barrel, filled with air, shot 30 shots through and then did the following group with Crosman premier Ultra Magnums .22

    View attachment 94364

    My question is, for a bit of fun, with the groups as they with the Crosman's would you continue to spend time on the different brands? I have switched to these for now and then when i get time I will see what the others can do - just wondered what you lot would do?

    Cheers
    Tim

    p.s. I did continue to zero in, but this was the first group. :)

    Hi Tim, I remember when I owned a HW100 like it was yesterday, oh it was yesterday, I miss her already.

    You've seen my YouTube video, that was using JSB Exact Heavies recommended to me by The Robin. Great consistency good quality control so not many bent ones out of the tin. 14 shots 35yards bit of wind and a grouping covered by a 1p coin. That's good enough for me. Cheers Pete

    just shot two different .22 weihrauch barrels recently and to my surprise both preferred the Crossman ultra magnum 14.3 grain pellets ? I believe these to be the same as the webley accupels ? someone may correct me on that though ;) , hth , rich .

    It's probably worth checking at longer ranges, just in case, but there's nothing wrong with what you have so far.

    I normally test at ranges I wouldn't shoot at, 50m. With groupings of about 30mm at 50m, this is probably mixed with my bad shooting, but at 35m I can group within a 5p bit which is what I go on for hunting.

    Jsb exact express 14.4g being the pellet of choice:)

    Thanks all for the replies.

    Terry/Steve - I'll definitely check at all ranges properly but early signs show tighter groups.

    Pete - that's ok, it's your new gun day so your allowed :)

    cheers

    I keep saying that Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum work very well in most HW barrels!

    Oh and yes Richardscar they are Accupell, only cheaper!

    Was at the club a few months ago and Chris (Seamaster) was struggling to get decent groups with his HW 100 so I let him try a few of my Crosman Premier Ultra Magnums and ended up giving him the rest of the tin! :D

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    personally, if you've bought some pellets to try, then try them. if not, assume the crossman are the best pellet. they are known to be a quality pellet, made harder and v consistant in size and quality. best place to buy in bulk is cheapairriflepellets(all one word), and delivery for up to 20 or so tins is approx £7

    Thanks Mr Mole, it was because of your posts that I included them in the list....glad I did now :). And its good to know they are the same as Accupells - saves me buying them.

    Steve, I have RWS Superdomes, JSB Exact Jumbo's and Bisley Long Range Golds left to try at some point :). Thanks for the tip with the buying in bulk - when I am sure I'll give it a look :)


    cheers

    Yes keep try, if you get a pair of equally good pellets, then try it 20yards further, this will show you the best and probably most consistent pellet.

    Personally I've only had one rifle prefer crosmans, and that still wouldn't group well, but each rifle is different.

    One thing that I find strange is you read people saying superdomes are really good in there rifles, I'm yet to shoot a decent group with them :p
