  1. My recent renewal was 2 months late being granted because they are very busy. That said, the feo was brilliant and supportive when my doctor was causing issues.
  2. The only time I've had a base seperate was in a Hatsan pump trying to eject the cartridge but in all fairness the gun was rubbish. I've reloaded probably tens of 1000s of shells.
  3. Resizing should keep the case integrity. I only ever reload once though because the crimps can begin to split and cause problems. If you look inside a shell the compression formed ones are one piece but the parallel tube type have a base wad which is like a thick washer seated in the bottom. Virtually all UK cases are parallel tube.
  4. I don't add any unnecessary wad pressure to any load. I think you will get lower pressures if the wad is uncompressed on firing as it gives room to the expanding gases before the shell opens.
  5. A good factory cartridge is Eley CT 28g fibre. They are nice and quiet. I've only tried 7 1/2s but a larger size would be better if possible.
  6. I usually load plastic but I have pushed a few fibres along with nitro card thru my 20g 9000 and they fed thru the wad guide just fine.
  7. 30 for 44 shots is good in any gauge 👍
  8. A lot of the claygame CD data is very suspect in my experience 😳
  9. I used to use 21grains of Vectan AS for 28 or 30 grams of shot with cx2000 primer and z24 wad. If it were me I would up the powder a bit if you feel it needs it. This is a standard proofed load by the way and I recall it gave about 1250fps in the real world.
  10. I need a couple too. I was wondering if any other bottles fit the bill. Pop bottles etc?
  11. Well I've had a bit of luck as John from FES had them in stock and was kind enough to add one to my order FOC 😁 Thanks again John, you really helped me out this time 👍
  12. I've just bought an old style 12g Mec 600 reloading press but the metal pre crimp die in it is an 8pt one instead of the usual 6. Any idea where I can get just the metal die that fits in the holder, or if anyone has one kicking around. I don't want to get the newer plastic type as it would look odd to the rest of the machine. Thanks 👍
  13. I've some old notes written down which say 6mm holes starting 400mm from breech, then one pair at 60mm then 30mm centres for the rest to a total of seven pairs. Hope that helps 👍
  14. My little quad is a dream. Fits in the back of my Berlingo van and will go pretty much anywhere
  15. My decoys are showing signs of age so I would like to replace them. What are the best ones to buy? With a link please 🙂
  16. Ive used chocolate flavoured weetos under the shot in 12 gauge. A bit of thick card on top of the wad or some other smaller breakfast cereal should work fine.
  17. Ive got the 391 Urika Lite which is its predecessor and thats awesome. Owned it 11yrs and will probably never sell.
  18. High Fly single clay pigeon thrower in good condition with a bagful of clays. £20 collected from Kettering.
