      Browning XBolt Varmint barrel chop.

      Had my x bolt chopped after a year old. Down to 20 ins and very little to tweak to zero. Absolutelty no difference in performance, I tweaked my homeloads a bit and the roe and foxs don't know.

      For the sake of a small fee (5 or 6 pds) have it put on your SGC when renewing. I have never owned an airgun but will add cert on when renewing in October.

      Steel Shot or Wasting My Time?

      Ive always been under the impression that pea harvesters ban the use of steel shot over their crop. That's the case for me on a few permissions with small acrerage. I stand to be corrected. Lawn ranger. North Ayrshire shooting ground has a steel pattern plate free of charge.If you decide to try it shout n I will meet with you. They sell loadsa steel shells. You mihght find the brand you are using does not pattern well in your gun. Barry

      Steel Shot or Wasting My Time?

      I used to shoot 28 gram seven n half trap loads in lead for woodies but requested to supply all of my birds to BOP guys I changed to steel. I have used 28 no 7s since then. My averages per year were 2600 birds and changing to steel they are the same. Ive converted quite a few to steel and they would not go back. Over ponds I use the same load (half choke) on rising teal and mallard dropping into decoys.I see no difference in bags. The only thing I find with steel is it tends to be a tighter pattern so when at woodies I use quarter choke after patterning on the plate. everyone at decoying should know their permissions. One or two of mine the birds flight in over some tall trees so I always use 32 no 4s for the extra distance although I can take decoying birds to 40 odd yds with the 7s. The good thing about steel is the premium the BOP guys pay. How much. NOYB.
