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.

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.

  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.

    I've just ordered 4 tins of Falcons, great pellet and super accurate but it got me wondering...

    Is there actually a cheap pellet, let's say under £8 for 500 that are actually consistently any good, even for just plinking, I'd like to stock up on some tins but really don't purchase absolute crap..

    I mainly shoot Springers, I've tried gamo pro hunters, panther pellets etc... what are the proshot range of pellets like?

    Cheers

    I watched a video a while back of some pellet testing with the bsa range of pellets, the video wasn't the best, it could do with some editing but some of the pellets seemed ok, hopefully they are cheaper.

    Buy in semi bulk and your favourites will usually drop in price a fair bit :) .

    The Hades I use can be anywhere from £13-£16 a tin , buy 10 at a time and it’s £10.50 a tin to my door .

    Rob, I’ve just bought some JSB Stratons for £7.35... either Uttings or JS Ramsbotham... they are great at short distances but not managed to try them at anything further due to CV19. They’re both still delivering too.

    Hope this helps buddy.

    I’ve just had a delivery of 1000 JSB Exacts 4.52 pellets from an eBay seller.
    Without doubt the best packed tins ever. :thumb:

    Most H&N were under £8 a tin but now they've gone up quite a bit.

    Using a Hatsan Flash .177

    I have tried a few of the BSA range , they are around the £3.19 / £3.50 range.

    Interceptor = sh*te , all over the place
    storm, target , max , all pretty good at 30mtrs

    I tried RWS Geco superpoint = sh*te
    RWS superfield & superpoint = excellent

    I also tried AA fields & express but had very poor results with them.
    H&N , JSB = great results

    On a similar quest myself. Usually use RWS Hobbys for cheapie but my Diana isn't overly fuss about them. Tried H&N Excite Hammer and Excite Hammer. Both moderate at best. My criteria is inch groups at 20 yards for a plinking pellet. Starting to think it's probably a waste of money trying many more cheapies.

    Even RWS Basics are a decent pellet to 25 yards... A titch cheaper than Hobbys as well( here in the States) at least.
