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.

  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.'

  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.

    Did have a similar experience with my .17hmr. I was just about to give up in disgust as it would not group.... and then suddenly it did. Never had it with an air rifle though.

    Still, if it holds the zero, then I suppose it doesn't matter much. Possibly the barrel just needed a lot of leading in.

    Seems a strange one. The main issues I've had have always been with scopes that won't give enough elevation so have needed the rear mount shimming..........very annoying.

    Iv had that a couple of times with scopes. I just used a bit of packing between the mount and scope and that did the job

    I have heard of some barrels needing well over 100 + pellets to become consistant :confused:

    Although l wouldn't have suspected this would be the case with an FX smoothtwist barrel ?

    I have had this before on a new springer, it was driving me insane for a long while 10 shots would be all over the gaff then the next 5 or so would be spot on. I was constantly re-zeroing. Eventually i tried different pellets through it and found it needed AA 5.53's. Grouped well after that. As mentioned above, i would run it through a chrony with different pellets, maybe some dont fit so well in the barrel like mine did?

    atb,

    Pete.
