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.

    Hades... mines .22 see?

    Don't worry about whether the pellets suit it... you can move them easily by listing them on here. Pellet testing is quite interesting, in a sad way. o_O

    Tried several different brands through my S400f Classic and AADF came out on top.

    JSB Exacts a very close second, not much in it but the AADF just edge it with better consistency.

    Jsb exact jumbos in mine. Tried jumbo expresses, but they didn't group well at longer ranges which kind of defeated the point in using them

    AADF's, FTT's to name but a couple, there are many more though... :thumb:

    Found AADF's to be best for my particular set of circumstances, wide open, windswept and generally longer than normally accepted ranges requiring the pellet to have the ability to buck the wind well but still retain good accuracy/energy at the target end... :)

    Hi Mush, so you've decided to trade in the TX... is it a carbine and are you going to be shooting those rabbits?
    My S400 Classic isn't too pellet fussy - less so than my TX200. I can use JSB-manufactured pellets in 7.87, 8.44 and 10.34gr, 4.51 and 4.52mm but not all dies. Other manufacturer's pellets don't group as well at long range but I've not tried QYS yet. I use mostly AADF 8.44gr for targets and JSB 10.34gr for rats and rabbits.
    Hope you enjoy the S400, and let us know how the QYS perform. :thumb:

    Limited experience, I'm afraid. I got a full sleeve of AADF 4.52s of 2007 vintage with the gun and they have performed very well. Out of interest I got a tin of QYS domed 8.48 grain and they perform pretty much the same, albeit with a slightly different POI.

    I found the qys domed 8.48 group the best in my s410 there unbeleveable to be fair to them with H&N FTT a very close second. Although the s4xx series rifles seem to shoot prity much anything well in my expreance.

    Thanks for all the replies I'll give the QYS a go first and maybe get a tin of Exact when I (hopefully) pick up the gun this week.

    It's full length Bill and hoping it's going to be a lot quieter than my beloved Ex TX:( and yep those pesky bunnies need to keep their down :thumb:

    JSB exacts work fine in mine. I personally prefer JSB RS. At 7.33gr, they're the closest thing to a laser beam you can shoot out of an air rifle.
