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.

    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.'

  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.

    Heard good reports about these pellets, so bought a tin of 4.51s and 4.52s to try in my AA410 (Not deserting you JSB) Very impressed with first mag fired, as good as the JSBs,single hole over 30 yds on rest. Second mag, two shots over an inch off! Decided to visually check each pellet loaded and was amazed at the quantity of deformed pellets in each tin. Not talking minor imperfections here, but skirts in shape of figure of eight in some cases. Tin one contained 70 unuseables and tin two 82. Neither of the tins themselves showed signs of damage, so have I been particularly unlucky or does RWS quality control need questioning. Needless to say will be sticking with my JSBs or AAs. Anybody else had this problem?

    The RWS superfield are JSB's.
    RWS stated to sell them just over a year ago. I have shot about 20-25 tins now and hardly found any damaged ones.. I have another 40 tins to go:D

    i realised the prices were going sky high so i bought them a year ago at £5.50 a tin.

    I also discovered them by accident when i went to a shop and asked them the give a tin of the RWS round nose pellets....what i really wanted was the RWS domw pellets that have been around for years.

    The funny thing is that i have shoot so many tins of JSB,s and so many more sitting next to me, BUT i never bought a tin that says on it JSB:D:D.

    Before that i was buying the AA....

    Thats very unlucky that mate, I hate it when you get deformed pellets.
    Stick with Air Arms pellets, cannot get any better, can get them for 5.50 a tin and not had any deformed ones yet(fingers crossed).

    Agree totally with that statement Richie, thought I would try the RWS as a fair bit cheaper than the AAs. Can't buy them even close to 5.50, thats a great price. Mind telling me where you get them?

    Yeah sure, I get mine from Deeside Shooting School in North Wales.
    The next best type is the RWS Superdome, they are a tougher lead so less prone to accidental damage, consistent and dirt cheap.
    Best advice I have ever been given is use one type of pellet and get to know its trajectory otherwise if you keep swapping different brands then you will know a little about a lot rather a lot about a little.

    I've made H&N FFT's my pellets. I don't think I've ever found a bad one.
