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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Scope's is a big subject and I was really into scopes at a stage.
    1st of all are you shooting 177 or 22?

    my self I do not use mil-dots as I use airguns out to 50 yard's,177 has not much drop out to 50 yard zeroed at 35 but 22 can drop a bit which is why some tend to go for mil-dot.

    High end competition shooters of ft use mill-do on 177 but they need to be perfect as there wanting to win a competition.

    I have found the I zero 22 at 40 yard and any thing that comes with in,is dead.

    177 anything with in 35 and out to 50 is dead.
    You could opt for 22 and zero at 25 yard and try make the mils match at 5 yard each but to me for hunting,it is a big mess around,so are all these px adjustable and side focus scope's.

    now if you was hunting with say a 308 out to 400 yard a mill-dot would be needed as you could get a target ate 100 yard which would be no good if you are zeroed at 400 yard and a none mill-dot scope.

    With a mill-dot on a rifle like a 308 you would zero at say 100 yard and then 50 at each mill or even 25.

    It is a complicated subject which you should do a search on as there is a search button on top of page.
    optictalk forum is also a good read.my self,I only use standard duplex,also known as true plex on all my sub 12ft rifles,but I do stick to certain distances with 22.

    Longer you get use to shooting the more skill you get and you will be able to use a duplex as if it were a mill-dot,trust me,I can wind estimate very well on none mil-dot scopes.

    Some may dis agree but the pros will agree I am sure.

    forgot to mention,all the scopes you mention are very cheap,some 400 pound pluss scopes mill-dots are not accurately seperated,so from that I would not expect a cheap scope's mil-dot to be accurate at all.

    Your mount master is probably better then most the bsa range.I suggest you look toward's the simmons range if you want half decent glass for your money.
