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.

    I bought an SMK Victory CP2 .22 for my lad to plink with and I've tried H&N FTT's, Accupells, Superdomes and JSB Exacts Jumbo RS and they are all really tight when going in to the breach, are there any pellets out there with smaller skirts that will fit better?

    Seek and you will find decent pellets have a label with size tolerance printed on them.

    Failing that a gun problem

    To be fair I thought that FTT's had pretty narrow skirts.. can you feel any stiffness/resistance from the bolt when dry firing the CP2?

    wouldnt worry too much,as the pellets will be "sized" as you push the bolt forward.
    although they may feel tight as you push the bolt in,they will all be nicely seated
    before you fire. you could just get a bigger knob :eek: for the handle to make it a bit
    easier to load.

    Try marksman pellets in the yellow box, so soft you could push a .22 into a .177 barrel no problem :D

    That's exactly what its like, on some you push the the probe and its like you've hit a wall before it pushes the pellet in

    Try some Weihrauch F&T Sport which are a 5.51mm version of the "normal" 5.53 mm H&N FTT and are noticeably easier to push into the breech of my HW77.
    They also offer a 5.51 mm version of the JSB Exact Jumbo under the Weihrauch FT-Exact Jumbo name, which also work well in my rifles.

    I'm no expert, but Air Arms pellets seem to have a soft skirt, so should move into the breech easily.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way. :wave:

    some owners drilled out the breach (first 1/4" or so). Seemed a bit drastic to me, so I round filed the first bit gently. Fine/no problem now

    It might be worth trying some of the pellets that the guys have mentioned but if you're still not having any luck with it and it's in warranty then don't be afraid to send it back to your RFD for repairs/replacement. :up:
