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.

    Smooth skirt on fields a bit heavier 8.4gr in .177 seem harder than domes in my rifles imo the domes are more accurate over 30yds than the fields.Give them a try different barrels often suit different pellets.

    They both cheep for a tin just over a £5 a tin so try both i find the superfields really hard to push it the barrel and really have to force the bolt home.
    alot of people love domes but i never had any luck with them in my rifles past 35yards.

    Can anyone definitively state what the crack is with the RWS Superfields? I remember some time ago everyone loved them as they were made by (and potentially better through some guns than) JSB.

    Then, according to legend RWS switched their supplier from JSB (Exact copy) to H&N (FTT copy) and it all went wrong..

    I've never risked the money on a new tin, but despite the apparently "H&N issue" I consistently find recent material online / hear people discussing how good the Superfields continue to be and how they're still JSB-sourced.

    Can anyone shed any light on the situation please? ;)

    Superfields are totally smooth pellet with a more pronounced domed head and are heavier in both calibres.Superdomes have a ribbed skirt ,less pronounced domed head(ironically) and are lighter.In .22 calibre I've found the superdomes to have a better finished base to the skirt

    The Superdomes in .177 have a smooth skirt internaly whare the .22 superdomes have like a step in side the skirt if that makes sense,but both are ribbed externaly on the skirt.I have found some batches of the Superfield in both calibres brilliant and other batches absolute crap so buying them in bulk is a risk as you just don't know what you are going to get- like others have said the early Superfields were really good and then they switched manufacturers and it was pot luck after that.

    I would like to see RWS made a .20 superdome, and while their at it, a light 7.2g and heavy 9.8g .177 round headed pellet,

    as long as it's not shipped out for someone else to make and supply.

    Superfields are not ribbed but superdomes are,if you pick a super dome up in .177 and one in .22 and look inside the skirt you will see what i mean.

    My HW100's used to perform really well with Fields (and agreed with all - Super Field are the smooth skirted ones) and they were only marginally more expensive than Domes. That said, Domes seem to perform really well in a wide variety of rifles. Not the best pellet out there by any stretch of the imagination but they are a great all-rounder.

    An old adage I've always followed - German pellets for German barrels. Probably an urban myth but it seems to work.
