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.

    If your getting wild shots at 5 yds then I think the only place to put them is in the bin. Cheap pellets just arn't worth it in my opinion

    Do yourself a favour and melt them down to use as a back stop for decent pellets. ;)

    My Cadet and Cadet Major both seem to like RWS Superdome. :up:

    Being .177, I used Geco pellets in the Cadet. In the garage during testing they made a single hole from multiple shots. It is short range but I would expect that. If spread out over that range then yes accuracy is an issue. More than 5 yards it will be a shotgun pattern! Superdomes worked the same as well as Geco.

    How much more difficult and costly can it be to produce a decent quality pellet as opposed to a bag of shyte? Not much I suspect. So why bother making shyte?

    I've found superdomes to be a bit tight in the barrel but are consistent with accuracy, recently using AA diabolo fields which fit relatively loose in comparison but again quite accurate.
    Unfortunately it's trial and error until you find the right pellet for your gun

    Quite true Ferret, but well worth the question on here about pellet selection before going to the futile expense of buying sh1te pellets in the first place ... even though the answers will vary widely, not many will include SMK's poxy examples ;)

    Marksman pellets are the only cheap pellet worth buying, either .177 or .22 (ok accuracy out to 35 yards .177 and 50 yards .22), always switch to on windy days and saves using better pellets for practise/testing as well. At very short range should get cloverleaf if not pellet on pellet.
