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.

    Same here. To look at I didn't expect much from them the first time I tried them, only to be pleasently surprised when they suited my rifle.

    When I use a new batch of pellets I benchrest and if I can get a cloverleaf at 35yds then they pass the test.
    If I cannot get a decent grouping I use them for plinking.
    If your current batch give you a consistent group at your chosen ranges then go for it.

    I have just started using them after a long lay off. They do now have the ridge you mention - but they are brilliant pellets - very clean and consistent quality. In my guns at least they are currently one of my favourites .

    Hi, been lurking for a while,decided to register after reading this post, bought a tin of rws superfields .177 4.5mm 8.4gr to use in a daystate huntsman classic, only used 3-4 pellets as they were very tight into the breech and didnt want to cause any damage to the rifle. Fairly new to air rifle shooting and have found this forum a huge help, thanks to all,

    Welcome along fishingpip.......:up:

    I have two started tins of .22 RWS Superfields from 2012 and one has half the visable amount of filling as the other but both sets are just a smooth dome unlike the Op's...:confused:

    I found they drifted off to the right past 25 yards as if my scope was fitted out of level, then I tried Falcon Accuracy Plus pellets and got very consistant groups straight away out to 30+ yards like a laser.....:up:

    Never had any trouble with them in my TX200 or HW100. It will no doubt vary, gun to gun however.

    Ive tried them in the past and found the same issues as above, It seems the diablo field are still the best in the majority of rifles Ive owned and probably ever will.

    Its funny I got talking to a lad today who owned a Logun Axsor and asked me what a good pellet for it is, I said the softest and smoothest there is to load, so in similar guns Ive owned where the pellet has to pass over a breach joint to a barrel, anything hard or stepped will just put pressure on you loading probe as it gives the pellet a shave.

    Air arms seem to load far smoother in any similar variant of that particular gun.

    But Ive never tried them in the hw100 or Rapid, I reckon the hw100 would shoot them but don't think the Rapid would like them although it is direct breach loading, but I cant see the point when I already know it will one hole with JSB/Airarms.

    That step just seems to difficult to replicate over and over im the moulding process, If they lost the step and lowered the price of them, it would maybe draw some people away from the likes of JSB/AA
