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.

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.

  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.

    Was finding that my gladius was liking jsb heavys 18.13 and grouping quite well , I thought I’d have a play today target shooting on my permissions with some samples I got over the last couple weeks , set splatter targets out at my zero point 30 yards and began to have a go , first up was AA Diablo fields they were grouping ok but not as good as the jsb heavys I was originally using , second up were Crosman premiers they were like a shot gun , 3rd up was h&n ftt 14.66 I thought these would be good as loads of recommendations well they were the worse flying everywhere crazily inaccurate, then I tried jsb jumbo Diablo 5.52 15.89gn .... these were spot on with nearly pellet on pellet groupings at 30 yards very impressed , so out came crono and fire a string through to see they were averaging 567fps = 11.3ftlb so all in all pleased with the out come

    this as a 26 shot group at 25yards

    Bucketboy that's is a serious my good group. How are the Stratton's at longer range?

    HeadshotHarry try them in 5.51 head size and try the Hades.

    I must have the only FX .,22 liner that prefers 5.51 heads. The 5.52 are too slow and down on power.

    I sent BB some Strattons to try as I found them excellent in most of my .22's at 50yds. I see 1/2 a dot more drop over jumbo's but better accuracy so their my go to .22 pellets

    Bucketboy it was noticing the speed the Hades were doing, measured the heads and they're well under 5.5.
    After you saying you pushed pellets through your barrel. I thought I would and see how much they marked up off the rifling, the 5.52 were so tight I had to lean on the rod to get them through the choke damaging the skirt. The 5..51 went through with a nice fit and tightened at the choke but not too much. Hades nearly fell through.
    In my liner if Hades go over chrono at 11.7 the 5.52 exacts are a foot pound less 5.51 lubed about 11.4.

    I've found my Hatsan Gladius is quite capable of 'mangling' pellets as they are loaded into the breech. Some pellets it just doesn't want to work with. Longer pellets seem better suited.

    I've done a Lot of pellet testing best three I've found for my rifle:

    JSB 15.89gr 5.51mm to be the best accuracy and overall compromise.

    H&N FTT to be a close second but they drop like lead and lose energy really fast so not the best for long distances.

    H&N Sniper Light are JSB accurate but they drop about 3 inch less than JSB at 40 yards and they're flying a lot faster too, probably the best pellet but expensive.

    Obviously every gun is different, but they're my findings.

    My Hatsan Gladius is .177, nice enough gun- but quite pellet fussy. As I said, the loading mechanism seems to favour a longer pellet. JSB Exact, JSB Exact Heavy, AA Field Diabolo, Daystate Kaiser, H&N Baracuda FT etc. all work well over the longer distances.

    The JSB Straton are probably the best 0.22 pellet I’ve found for accuracy in FX guns and a Rapid

    Who would have thought pointed pellets accurate.
    What were the pellets in the 1990's that were in-between a pointed and a dome, worked very well.
