  1. Don't ruin your gun by opening the chokes!
  2. I can't agree with that. No one should be stupid enough to use cartridges that are unsuitable for their gun. If a gun owner can't read, then perhaps they should not own a gun.
  3. So if 8 guns have 6 drives in a day, you think an average of 2 birds per gun per drive will leave everyone satisfied? A 36gm steel load would be an ideal load for most pheasants. Why would you suggest it isn't?
  4. If you were happy with them and they work as you want, why did you ask if anyone else had used them? I personally wouldn't buy them unless I had little other choice. Most of my pigeons are killed with an ounce of 7 or an ounce of 6.5. I wouldn't pay £140 a thousand extra for something that does a similar job.
  5. Pigeons can slow down, and clays can speed up.
  6. I totally agree. I was reading all that, hoping I might be educated. I was wrong, sadly.
  7. There isn't a cartridge on sale that won't kill a pigeon. Cheapest doesn't mean worst.
  8. It is fine to use lead for now, but the future, who knows? Your guns will almost certainly take steel shot.
  9. That could be the answer, unless of course, it is made illegal to be in possession of lead cartridges. The issue would then be the selling of said pigeons. That isn't how things work! The likes of BASC do not make policies.
  10. I now have a 57 plate Jeep Grand Cherokee 3L crd. It is more comfortable and less thirsty than the 3L surf that it replaced. The only thing I wish, is that the boot was bigger. Plenty of power, though! It is also pretty good off road on the pirelli road tyres it currently sits on.
  11. It is called steel. May I ask why? If not lead, then what is "it" to do with? You are so off the mark, here.
  12. The biggest factory lead load for 3" would be around 53gm. The biggest factory steel load for 3" would be around 39gm. You could probably squeeze a bit more in both with home loading, depending on powder charge and shot size.
