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.

    Thank you to a couple of members on here - Farty and TORNADOS7 - for providing me with some pellets to try out. Here are the results. This is not a scientific test. I shot one magazine into each target from eight types of pellets. And I was surprised at the results. First of all, here are the targets. They were all shot identically...

    No scope changes were made throughout my entire shooting session. All pellets were shot using the same magazine, the same shooting position - seated and rested and in the same weather conditions. What has surprised me most is that the AA Diabolo Field pellets were about the worst pellets for my rifle when I first bought it. How did that change? OK, yes, I know, I didn't put enough of each pellet through the rifle to line the barrel and all that stuff. But, this was just an experiment to see how different pellets react.

    Some pellets were lighter (14gn), so they went higher, Some were heavier (16gn), so they went lower. But the results were pretty good. I zero at 25 metres and only do some target plinking, so I can't see the point of going out to another 10 yards. The AA Fields seem good enough for me at the moment. But your comment is quite valid.

    I think, like everyone else, Ray, everyone eventually finds a pellet that suits their gun.
    And it might be a different pellet for the same gun. You just have to give them a try :)

    I use JSB 8.44's in my RM8, never had a bad batch, and the best would in still air, bench rested, shoot a ten shot group at 40 meters you could cover with a 5p, the worst pellet was a tin of garbage Pro Shot .177's purchased from Ramsbottom's, they looked nothing like the picture on the tin and the 40 meter group could just about be covered with a dustbin lid.

    You're unlikely to go wrong with JSB/AA pellets, Tony...

    That's the most strange thing about it all, RW. When I first bought the rifle the JSB and AA were the most inconsistent pellets I tried. So much so, that I gave up using them after about 100 shots and the tins were left on the shelf. That's why I was most surprised when I decided to compare all 8 of the variants I have. I always thought the RWS Superdome was best suited. Might have to do a bit of a rethink. :facepalm:
