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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    wow, quite a few then.

    General consensus? .20 surely is a go between .177 and 22, so should be more popular?

    Hello again :D

    i have used .20 and it is a bloody good calibre, if you can get the pellets to suit your barrel. imo not enough pellet choice and one for the manufacturers, not anywhere near enough decent barrels:down:

    You forgot one from the old list: BSA 635 Magnum.

    I've got one and it's a lot of fun. At the time I think it was the only full production .25 in the country - could be wrong but it was out in the late 80s I think.

    .25

    Apparently .25 is awesome in FAC. Real stopping power and energy downrange.
    It's going to be the first choice for me when I get my ticket.

    Think .25 in Sub 12FP is only good for Close Up
    More a unlimited us in USA & Ireland where run @ FAC Level

    .20 was Ben Taylors pet project

    But lack of ready available pellets seems to have killed it over the years

    Especially as there are now Heavier pellets in .177

    .25 pellets

    Hi, I've used .25 for around 2 years for rats and I have no complaints.
    Even had the odd rabbit.
    All you need to remember is the pronounced trajectory.
    There are lots of .25 pellets out there,the problem is the average gunshop will only stock one or two "old favourates" like BSA Pylarm (which my HW barrel doesn't like) or Bisley Pest Control (useless down range).
    I've found a good pellet for all round in .25 is H+N Field and Target Trophy.
    For "extra penetration" H+N Diabolo Barracuda Extra Heavy will punch a hole through most stuff rats might hide behind,wiggley tin etc:D
    I've also used Super Fields,Penetrators,H+N Field+Target(not Trophy) and H+N Rampoint
