  1. The cartridge manufacturers still have a great deal of work to do. I believe Eley are the only manufacturer making non toxic bio wadded 20bore shell. Everything else in steel seems to be plastic wadded. I’ll be carrying on with fibre wadded lead until its no longer available or illegal gal to do so.
  2. Sorry, I meant with reference to cartridges loaded with steel. I believe they’re pretty much all plastic wads. I use exclusively fibre at the moment. I’m thinking more in relation to non lead loadings of which the majority are plastic wads.
  3. The BASC published an article today on the first year of their 5 year transition to non lead alternatives. With the exception of eley, from what I can see all the non lead alternatives in 20bore use a plastic wad. I for one don't wish to litter the countryside with plastic wads and will carry on using using lead until its outlawed or a suitable alternative is produced. Do, or will the large commercial shoots allow plastic wadded cartridges (for which the large proportion of non toxic cartridges. Ie steel used plastic wads. I guess they'll have no alternative to allow them which flys in t
  4. I bought a 20bore (Beretta 690) O/U 2 years ago as I was after something lighter to carry and I haven't used my 12 bores since. I added a 20b AL391 last summer for hide and roost shooting and at the moment I can't see any of my 12s being used any time soon. I found it easier to shoot be be more instinctive with my driven shooting, although with the lighter weight it has to be driven more, I'm not as consistent on the longer shots as I used to be but I'm convinced that me and having to adapt my shooting rather than any disadvantage with using a lighter payload. I put 26gm RC Sipes t
  5. I find the cheaper bleach bathroom clearers really good, spray on and leave for 30mins and repeat as necessary.
  6. I was out on Saturday afternoon. It was pretty quiet in the wood that I was in, I had 4 but the guy in the wood next to me had 17 and the next wood over had a dozen or so. If I get 2 or 20 its just nice to be out. Did anyone else go last Saturday?
  7. Both my 12 and 20 bore AL391s run on Castrol fully synthetic motor oil and they work really well on it.
  8. I'm planning on roost shooting tomorrow on our syndicate which is approximately 9 miles from my front door. I'll be completely alone for the duration. I wasn't planning on going until I had a call from our keeper earlier informing me that given the volume of rape on the farm this year the farm manager would like the syndicate members to cover a wood each on Saturday afternoons for the foreseeable future. On that basis I believe I'm complying with the rules. https://basc.org.uk/coronavirus/
  9. Country Squire have published another article this morning, the Daily Mailed pick up the previous one. https://countrysquire.co.uk/2020/12/23/damning-video-footage-nails-packham/

    This year has been interesting, people have gone one of two ways, put it on or the change in circumstances has helped them lose it, I'm the latter. I was 86kg in March and I'm down to 76.2kg now. The biggest change for me was getting into a routine, previously with travelling around for work, kids clubs and client entertaining, looking after myself was what I would do when everything else was done. When lockdown 1.0 happened I made a point of eating 3 proper meals each day, not drinking too much and exercising regularly. I didn't really notice my weight coming down until I dropped a tro
