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.

    Looking for some heavy pellets in .177, which are best, I've come across Bisley Magnums, are there any others?

    Dare i admit that i bought some .177 ammo?
    My name is FXpoacher and i have a .177.:eek:

    It's my FX project, (As soon as the stock is finished, pics will follow!:D)

    I bought Crosman premier field target 10,5gr, (only because it is a crosman barrel), and these seem to go well out to 25mtrs.
    Admittedly that rifle is running at 13 fpe, but i wouldnt of thought that would make such a difference.
    Another one is Baracudas at 10.6gr.
    I know these work a treat in my .22 FAC.

    But i think the problem is, if you wanted heavier pellet's, you should of got a .22:p:D:D:D

    I have to admit i was surprised at how far i got it to go on a low charge.
    And yes it still went through my old 25ltr thinners drum, but i'm still not 100% convinced!
    The field trail continues................................

    bISLEY MAGS ARE VERY GOOD SO ARE HN BARACUDAS. BUT I ALWAYS PREFER MEDIUM WEIGHT PELLETS AIR ARMS 177 do the job for me when using the heavier pellet you are losing close to 100 FPS OVER THE AIR ARMS RUNNING AT 11.7 F.P.E

    I'm under the impression that heavier pellets are best for hunting in .177, that's why I started this thread :cool:

    well you need all the puch power you can get out of em.
    bisley super fields are much lighter than whats described above but have a small dip in the domed head so would increase stopping power.

    with them you'd have a flat trajectory, penetration and the dip would give stopping power and energy traspher
