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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Hopefully a couple of weeks at least. The wadcutter selection should keep the 30k fed, while the Jumbo RS, RS and QYS Streamline are for the .22 99s and .177 98 respectively. Found the Superdome at the back of a cupboard, £3.95 price tag still intact. If I'm reading it correctly, the label on the bottom of the tin indicates that they were made in 1991...

    In my rifles, but the 30k doesn't belong to me and is only used for garden plinking - so something a little cheaper than RS is a good thing... :thumb:

    I've just bought a springer, some bloke on here seems they are good! I have to admit, I love the "feeling" of a sping gun. :)

    That will keep you busy. The old pellets will be easy to shoot as in 1991 we didn’t have either hold sensitivity or parallax error just hit or miss

    Do you have a favorite flat head @rabbitwrecker ? I looking for the flat head équivalant of RS

    That was in the day when you were likely to get a bit of fag ash down the back of your neck while at the barbers. Happy days.:facepalm::D

    Back in the day, it would have been Hobby in .177 and .22 and H&N in .20. Recently, I've been using JSB Jumbo Match in the .22 99s to good effect - that rifle just doesn't like Hobby. The .177 99s doesn't mind them in the slightest, but the real winner is JSB Match (Yellow). Although heavier than RS - more Express class - they're deadly accurate and I prefer JSB's softer lead mix in any case. If you want something RS weight, try JSB Match (Green).
    The wadcutters pictured above are for testing in the G/F's new 30k. Hobby are reasonable, but the skirts are a pig to seat and I have noticed the odd flyer. On the other hand, the JSB Target Sport are nicer in every way. Incidently, I tried a few through the 98, which seems to like them too - that bodes well for the Match (Yellow), which are the same weight. Not had chance to try the H&N/Excite yet...
