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.

    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.

  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.

    Any of you rabble used a tin in .177 recently? My gun liked them until I bulk bought 20 tins 10 for me and 10 for a mate:rolleyes:
    The sizing of the pellets are all over the place, some drop in and others really need thumbing in, the results of course have an 25 FPS spread and grouping like that of marksman pointed:down:
    I've been in touch with Weihrauch who in turn put me in touch with H&N who of course make them, I've been asked to send a tin to Germainia for evaluation.
    Anyone found similar with them?

    They certainly have gone downhill if this is the new accepted standard, marketed as a premium pellet I just hope that H&N agree that these really are unacceptable quality.

    Some height to fall from, 18 months ago I was blown away by the accuracy of them. Looks like AA/JSB in future for me, not sure how/if H&N are going to resolve the 18 odd tins we have left that are clearly useless

    I'm coming to the end of a sleeve I bought a year ago and they've been spot on.
    I'm worried now because this is the first I've heard about a drop in quality.
    I did put a few H&N FTT through my HW100 a couple of weeks ago and they were rubbish but I've only got about 1200 Weihrauch pellets left so I may have to change brands.

    If anything I just hope this thread will save other mugs like me who buys 20 tins on the strength of previous quality.

    Buying any airgun pellet is a bit like buying lottery tickets.The last RWS Superdomes I bought were on the small side.JSB pellets for the last couple of years have been all over the place quality wise.Hatsan (H&N) pellets I bought recently are very good but who knows what the next tin will be like.

    Superdomes are great at 25-30 but open up quite a lot past that, great for the garden but not for FT /HFT

    Did you make sure you were buying the same batch??

    Standard practice for the top shooters at my club is to buy I tin of a batch / die and test. If that tin is produces good groups the shooter then buys as many as he can of the same die/batch .

    i.e., die 34 (2013) Jsb are very good in most guns.
    How ever the two best shooters in the club both found die 46 to be best in their guns.
    One of them ordered 50 tins, the other 100, they cleaned Intershoot out of die 46!!

    Jsb are by far the most popular pellet for the Ft shooters.

    Yes mate, I always insist on matching batches, just another reason to buy in bulk.
    Tomorrow I'm posting a tin over to H&N in Germany, its such a shame if this is a new accepted standard because no other pellet is as efficient in my HW95, I get easy power and great shot cycle feel too.
    I'll let you know the result
