    Article on Fibre versus Plastic

    There is no prices on the Kent website! We were over their shooting the premium steel cartridges, they were roughly £18-20 a box granted they were 3’ Steel but my opinion is you need to go heavier with steel to get effective range. The bismuth are about £23 a box for 32g 5s, Just cartridges are charging £38 for the same cartridge here in the UK, these cartridges. So a cartridge where the shot is manufactured in the UK and shipped 3800 miles to another manufacturer is £15 a box dearer! This is what the uk consumer should be fighting against!

    Article on Fibre versus Plastic

    This is already in action, Gamebore are owned by Kent Cartridges, Gamebore manufactures bismuth shot in the UK and sends it to Kent in North America who manufacture Bismuth cartridges and sell them at the same price as steel cartridges in the North American market! We are being ripped the **** out of in the UK Gamebore also manufacture steel shot fibre wad cartridges and sell them in Denmark for various types of shooting not just the 32g 3” duck loads we have on offer.
  6. I usually buy 2000 clay cartridges for the year and looking at prices the Gamebore steel are as cheap as it gets! Obviously I’m not shooting any great competitions but it did have me wondering, ethically what’s best Steel shot with plastic wad Lead shot with fibre wad Do I want to leave plastic wads or heavy metals in the environment?

    What mpg are you getting Jay?
  12. Is this advisable? I have a floored loft but it’s not heated other than what’s coming from the house underneath. More are steel for Wildfowling so I don’t go through them overly quickly so it would be longer term storage. Space in the house is limited so I’m trying to find an alternative area to store them. Thanks again folks
