    GP turbo's

    General Purpose Turbos, these were Topmark from memory? Blue or red case? Got any pics you can send mate? What are the High Ace and Uni-force? I am the same, cant resist picking up and old J H Ling, Richardson Halesworth or Raker Game ??
  2. One slab minus 3 cartridges of the above (247), these are probably 3 years old+ in the black/dark blue case with gold writing. Selling on behalf of a friend, current list per slab on Just Cartridges is £73.50 would like £60 collected from Colchester or can meet/drop off a12, m25 north, m4, m40/a40 (oxford), m5 (bristol/birmingham) A14, m1 (no further than nottingham), m6 (manchester) Also got 50 Maiocnhi AZ-20 32 gram 7 1/2's (english 7's), these are absolute bangers and a very popular clay load in the 80's, knock pigeons down a treat! Bit of nostalgia for you, a steal at £10 or £65 with the clear pigeons. Also got 10 or so loose odds and **** that will chuck in so just over 300 in total. I have other cartridges to get shot of (quite literally) some of which have dibs already from earlier in the year so will message those back who were previously interested this week. Apologies as had a house move and busy work diary to deal with. SGC holders only
  3. I had no issues with the cases on the 28 gram 7's this week, only shot a couple of boxes but I do find them punchy. First time had shot Hull pro sixteen's 24 gram 7.5's and these were a pleasure to shoot. Also shot a few boxes of my favourites, Rottweil Special 16F 7's (uk 6.5), these really are an awesome cartridge!
  4. We shot at Normanton wednesday afternoon, didn't get there until 17:30 and shot until 18:50, no one else shooting so had the whole ground to ourselves. A lovely little lay out, great value for money and very friendly staff indeed! Absolutely perfect for the time that we had and would highly recommend a visit

    Gamebore clear pigeon 30g or 32g cartridges

    Got a slab minus 3 (247 in total) if you are interested? 32gram fibre wad, these are the older style in a dark blue case (probably 5 years old) selling on behalf of a friend. Just cartridges price is £73.50 per slab at the mo, need £60 for them and can drop off next wednesday evening or thursday early evening

    16 bore cartridges

    Thanks for that mate, was not aware of the cashback incentive... how does that work? Nothing was mentioned when I put the deposit down yesterday and have not seen anything online either

    16 bore cartridges

    When I was looking earlier in the year the jubilee prestige certainly tickled my fancy as little else around and certainly is a beautiful gun, didn't realise you still had it for sale! Earlier in the year it didn't quite work out financially but moving house recently has left a hole burning.... I went and looked at a B525 today at Eastern Sporting in Gt Baddow..... within 10 mins I had put a deposit down, a beautiful looking gun and whilst a little bit heavier than your average 16 bore, it pulls up and point a treat. The 16g B525's wont hang about for long. There has been a couple of Mcnab Highlanders show up in the last few days on guntrader also. I will keep my lincoln premier gold as a knock about gun, it has served me well over the last 10 years. I am truly loving the resurgence of the 16 and it is very encouraging to see the cartridge manufacturers increase their range.... watch this space as sure there will be a further increase in available loads,and hopefully an increase in available clay loads. Whilst I think that eley missed a trick with their paper case VIP's (I think they should have been branded grand prix inline with papercase 12 and 20's and keeping with the eley tradition), it is very encouraging to see them take note of the resurgence and increase their range so credit to eley. Credit to Hull launching the pro sixteen also, a great move!

    16 bore cartridges

    It is great to see! I have always shot a 16. Going to treat myself in the coming weeks, undecided whether to go with a B525 30'' or spend a bit more and go with a Rizzini roundbody....
  9. I shot some 30 gram 5 VIP 16's at rabbits last night and had no visible issues but these were older stock in the previous packaging. I did pick up some 28 gram 7's his week and they have slightly smaller print exactly like the ones pictured so will be interesting to see how they perform this week when thrown at some clays....
  10. Eley now make a Papercase VIP in 16g, 28 gram 5's and 6's and also loaded in a 65mm case so true 2 1/2''. Just cartridges stock 3 Crowns papercase in 16g also but these are loaded in a higher brass 67mm case. I would think that most eley/hull stockists would be able to order a slab of these in although would possibly want payment upfront.
  11. Thankyou for the replies chaps. We are going to Normanton, can shoot until 19:00 so works out perfectly. We are all heading south after anyway so heading back in the right direction. Anyone shot there before?
  12. any idea what time you can shoot until? Is probably 30 mins+ from shepshed and wont be leaving until 16:00 Thanks for the replies chaps, I take it you can just turn up at both grounds and shoot?
  13. Bit of advice please guys. I want to take a customer and a couple of colleagues clay shooting wednesday afternoon (wont be until after 16:00) and wonder where is best to go! We will all be in Shepshed so preferably within 30 minute drive of there. Any advice much appreciated
  14. All this modern stuff is a load of rubbish in my opinion. 28 gram of number 7 for partridges, simple. Eley have totally missed a trick with their launch of a paper cased 16g, branded VIP, modern twist on a traditional cartridge, disappointing! Why not grand prix or classic game like their 12 and 20g paper cased cartridges? I do however respect Hull for keeping to the 3 crowns brand for their paper cased cartridges and also launching a true 16g clay load this year. I think the British manufactures have lost their way somewhat over the last 10 years.
