  1. Yeah I think you're right on collecting a wad to see but not practical where I was shooting. ..but I think the problem at range was just the lack of shot as I normally shoot steel and the gamebore super steel had no problem breaking the same clay ...so might be better if they were loaded with 7.5 or just increase the load ...
  2. The seller appears not to be a pigeon watch member. ...
  3. Well off I went this morning to Alan Evans fair clay shoot at Litcham to a 100 sporting with a few friends to try out the bio cartridges. .we took a couple of boxes each to shoot with our normal loads to give them a fair trial and to be quite honest they weren't bad, the only draw back was the wad at times took on the appearance of a confetti bomb plus as stonepark suggest they are a little short on shot for long range targets, but on short to medium range they were more than good enough. ..I look forward to seeing them bring them out in a 24g or even 28g form ... I would definitely use them again and am thinking that we have a sim day coming up at the end of August and I'm sure they would be a great cartridge for the occasion. ...
  4. I'm afraid I disagree in as much as just about any gun can be made to fit by a good gunsmith but you have to find a gun with good balance that you enjoy shooting.....
  5. Well Bob the only thing I would say is quality counts a second hand beretta or browning etc is always going to be of a better quality than lesser name gun and there are a great many out there to choose from... a bit of advice if you have friends who could lend you a few different models then go for it....equally try going to your local clay ground that has a shop combined as many will let you try before you buy... as for taking your old William into the hide why not thats what they were born to do... hope you find something
  6. Don't know about everywhere but unless you are shooting at the ground in don't see how their stand point is on that one...
  7. The yanks always do take a sledgehammer to crack a nut.....simple ideas often work. ....👍
  8. I totally agree Gordon I see it all time at the moment folks just ejecting cartridge case all over the place....less face it someone will pick em up.....! Drives me mad...
  9. No worries I'm looking forward to giving them a go...in fact theres a good write up on "shooting uk"... Have just cut it open to see the inside...
  10. No sooner said then done... I'll let you guys know how it goes Sunday and report back...
  11. Hi Bob, firstly what type shooting do you do ? do you want to buy new or used quite often you get a better value with used...
  12. I just bought a slab of bio sport iso 's to try Sunday if the press write up are anything to go by got to be worth a go ...£45 a slab not bad price either .. I also bought them with a sim day in mind as you can happily shoot them anywhere even sssi's theres no worries as the cup wad is made from card and cork...
  13. Hi Masmiffy, I have got things sorted for now I also bought a couple of pairs of equestrian gloves as well from Rider Trends. have been wearing a pair of them for the last few weeks and they seem really good not to thick and a half decent grippy palm. .. and at less than a fiver a pair I'm well chuffed ....
