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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Greeting all from the USA.

    HI Mates.. My first post. Great info here!!! Bit old school here as are my pump Sheridans . I have good results using RWS Hobbies for practice and general fun outings. Sport hunt a few birds and squirrels on my property . My on hand stock favorite pellet for game is finally running low . The old Beeman SILVER JET 5mm. of course, No longer produced , I hope to find a workable replacement that will give simular good result in my rifle. Maybe the Beeman crow mag , hollow points? Cheers

    I use RWS Super H point hollow point pellets. Great accuracy but they do tend to drop off due to the weight (14.5 grains).

    Anybody looking for a decent all round pellet could do a lot worse than Crosman Premier Ultra Magnums. Medium cost, very high quality, very low number of mis-shapen pellets per tin, made in the USA and superb in BSA (both PCP and gas ram) and HW too!

    I'm going to try some Bisley Mags in .177 next. I've got an AA S400 and have been using AA Fields 4.52 which were good but at £11 a tin (yes, i know I was had) I want something cheaper. When I was mucking about with my mates Chrono, we tried a couple of Bisleys and they increased my lb/ft by .6 I'm thinking that this extra power will go some towards reducing the drop of the heavier pellet.

    Other reasons for trying:
    I find that a lot of my AA fields get bent up skirts, either from rattling around in the tin or in my pellet pouch. The Bisleys have a much stronger skirt on them.

    Not sure if its true but I guess the heavier pellet is better with a cross wind and for hunting.

    Another mate was shooting a painted field target and a .177 Bisley removed the same sized chunk of paint as a .22 pellet. So near .22 sized hole with the accuracy of a .177

    I would like to hear your views...

    a friend has a HW95 at factory power, and for shiz and giggles today we ordered some H&N rabbit magnums, the 177's are a RIDICULOUS 15.75 gr! will they even make it out of the barrel without running out of steam?!
    i'm looking forward to them turning up, but dreading the bit where my pal expects me to land them all through a target at 30 yards!!
    I'd love a recommendation for a good mixed hunting pellet for a 177, both springer for my pal and pcp for myself.
