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.

    Superdomes are cheap and go well in lots of rifles as do Air Arms field but are a few more £s! as far as i know bisley get their pellets form H&N so im surprised to hear they are that bad!
    i have used L.R.Gold Pest control and magnums and no complaints on damage or poor forming! having said that H&N are miles better even though they are the same pellet purely because they are cleaner (Washed and graded) and my main rifle prefers them!
    i have a very very old tin of wasps in .177(my grandads lol) and some Webley special waist-ed pellets both unopened would love to try them but i quite like them all sealed up for some reason! :thumb:

    As said superdomes are the first port of call for most air guns and they seem to work well on most guns..

    H&N FTT are great pellets with superb accuracy, my theoben barrells like em... just wish they were a little less than 8.6 grain in .177 to get a bit more speed. RWS superdomes arent half bad & if you want some real speed then Falcon accuracy plus are good.

    I bought a batch of these in 5.5mm not so long ago, and they have remained more or less as full tins since. They aren't too bad for back-garden stuff, but even at 10-15 yards the Webley Accupells I bought to replace them still have a clear edge in my Meteor. A friend bought some Wasps in .177 back in May, they didn't seem half as bad as the .22 version and actually shot reasonably well through my TX200 (though his HW85k hated them).

    Another vote for the H&N FTT - just been messing today with the SLR in .22 and the FTTs all made one ragged hole at 35 yards. I surprised myself! I was shooting it over th echrono too - 20 shot string lowest was 589 highest 596 - a spread of only 7fps from a recoiling rifle! Pretty damn good I would say. That works out at 11.8 ftlbs, RIGHT ON! This was from a new style tin too, and they were bright, clean, well formed - I haven't found a damaged one yet.

    Another one worth trying in .22, especially in a BSA barrel is the Accupell, they are very well made and fly supebly. Wo cares if they are a couple of £s a tin extra...ONE extra bunny in the bag pays for the entire tin! RWS look very similar to both of these, but I have never tried them, even though they do get rave reviews from all over.

    You can still get them took me hours to find any though, my gunpower SSS loves them and JSB exacts but Eley wasp magnums are more fun/useful they hit a lot harder.

    GACI - have you tried the DEFIANT in large head size? That was another pellet that went superbly through my BSA barrels.John Bowkett rates them for BSA barrels, BUT,you do need the large head size and you will possibly need to put 100 or more through to clear the barrel for them. The do require clean rifling to work properly. My Scorpion would put them on top of each other at 50 yards. Smaller than a 5p piece group.
