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.

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    We see if they play at 100yd and see if there group to match the jsb/AA on a good day. Aswell as the drop difference we be told they got. I report in when I get them and the windy not a pain. 21g 5.53mm. Al

    16g are running at 1017fps now. Reg set on 130bar. We see the fps difference the slugs read on testing.
    Then do the tests. ;) al

    On a quick push 1 down my other barrels. They do feel a touch tighter but I not clean them up or a spray too down then. . The slugs have left a groove of about 2mm of rifling on them at the back. . Firing them on the gun next. ;) al

    Are they ok with the rifling or would they be better suited to a different twist rate like the FX slug liners have?

    Quick range test on drop today.
    90yds 10x 16g 920fps shows 4mill dots. Run that for years.
    H&n running the same fps. 920.
    It was hitting 2.5dots.
    Both set at 40yds zero without a fiddle on up/down. But 3 dots right the h&n shot.

    At 150yds the 16g pellets to show where so see the drop i run 5x. It then runs the 5th mark at the bottom. Eg 5th dot scale.

    The slugs showed on 10x that they run at the scale 7dots drop. ;)

    So thats shows the bc working.
    I work more info on them later. Was on keeper/ plumber/ tractor fiddling most of the day. ;) al

    Very quick test at 90yds. First 3 bullets did not a finger nail grouping. I thought . thats fun. Then the next few when crap. Tree lent on shooting. I test them in a mag next. As on single loading they drop back out if gravity as a chance.
    I do in the vice at 20yds up the land too and when the land dries out get the bi-pod out. Got the drop done. Now to see if they group right when shot right. Al
