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 guys

    You have probably guessed by now that I am still new to all this and thats why I still ask dumb questions.

    Is it very important what sort of pellets I use, bearing in mind that I am new to shooting and am not a great shot yet? I got a box of Wasp pellets and people seemed to turn thier noses up at them. I'm using an Air Arms s410 so should I stick only to Air Arms pellets? I thought that only if you were really good at shooting would you be able to notice a big differernce? What are the differences?

    What do people think?
    Thanks for this
    David

    To a great extent each gun is different. Even two of the same make and model can differ, but I think there's one thing nearly all have in common and that is they ALL don't like wasps.
    I use H&N Field Target Trophy in my S410 and it loves them...so do I.

    trouble with bad pellets is you dont know if its you or them.

    ive used wasps in my BSA metior and it seems to get on okay with them but its for shooting tin cans so i hardly need the best of the best for that.

    in my AAS410 i use the AA field pellets (as do many) and they work very well:up:

    yes good pellets are important

    One brand may group at 5 inch at 30 yrd whilst another will single hole. As a rule a good roundhead will be best. Try:-

    AA Fields
    JSB
    Accupell
    H&N FTT
    Superdome
    Penetrators/Exterminators
    Bisley magnum

    If you don't find at least one of them groups well you probably have a problem.

    About the only time to use anything else will be for short range work around or in buildings where pass throughs would be a problem. In such a case use a flathead or hollowpoint. Avoid fully pointed like the plague though semipointed such as bisley magnum are ok.

    i did a little test for myself the other day... set out two targets, one at 35yards and one at 60 yards, i used the one brand of pellets that i stand by:) logun pen's 16grn and at 35 yards i couldn't fault them, tried them at 60 yards and i think i scared the cows that were 300 yards to my far left, that's how bad they were at long range.

    then i pulled out some AA that i had, and gave then a twirl...:D i wish a had kept the targets to post on here i have to say that i was amazed at the difference in the two. grouping at 60 yards of two inches, with a steady breeze.


    im happy with the result and have now been converted to the AA pellets
