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.

Advice Webley Alecto .177 what pellet is the most accurate?

    Just started down the range and am starting to get to grips with pistol shooting again.

    I would like to know what type of pellets people are using for target shooting? The Pistol
    came with wad-cutters but have been told down the club that these aren't necessarily the
    most accurate of designs and that the domed shape is better for accuracy.

    So what are people using and how are you getting on?

    Flat heads are the best for accuracy at close range (Pistol range) which is why they are used in Olympic shooting too,they're also good for scoring since they create perfect holes.
    Try RWS Gecos or Hobbies, usually £3.80 to £4 a tin for 500

    After trying half a dozen or more flat heads and three domed pellets mine seems to like Bisley practise best. Shot a 48 (5 shot group)at 10yds free standing yesterday. Best with anything else has been a 43. Must admit to using jsb exacts for pistol hft as ranges greater than 10yds get a bit more difficult with a wadcutter.

    are flatheads any more accurate at short range? I guess they are lighter so the trajectory will be flatter. If you shoot indoors with no wind then they are less inclined to drift. I thought they only use them in short-range matches because of the need to score accurately and wadcutters form a perfect hole so the edge of the hole for scoring purposes is easy to see whereas domed pellets tend to leave more of a small torn hole. This would all suggest that wadcutters if you are paper punching but domed might be more accurate for plinking?

    I'd try Bisley Wadcutters. I fired a load through an Alecto last Friday with them got really good groupings at 10m with two pumps.

    The clean holes are just a bonus,accuracy is their main attribute..I use RWS Gecos (Flat) for 12 yard and below and RWS Superdomes for 12 yard and above

    I'd concur with Mattys advice.

    I use hobbies or Geco's for sub 10 yards. RWS superfields for longer distance.
