  1. Any 2.75 inch standard steel load up to size 3 will be fine, Hull, Gamebore etc al do this sort of load or Eley now do a 2.5 inch steel load
  2. Is this still legal under the new general licence?
  3. Had the same in .177, 124 l think. Great gun, accurate and powerful and good foe woodies at 50 yards
  4. no plans to go anywhere crowded for the forseeable including the whinging pubs. Stay distanced and stay safe with folk you know for me
  5. Hull did tin shells years ago and they jusy bounced of ducks
  6. Surely this only impacts on you if you sell what you shoot? I eat what I shoot and will continue to use lead. This seems to be becoming a very cosy arrangement for commercial shooting and lots of 'jobs for the boys'. Or am being wound up as it is 1st April and this would make a good April fool!
  7. Thanks for the advice all, a memeber of my fowling club is ti take me out as soon as we are allowed.
  8. proper wildfowling is on the foreshore rather than inland goose shooting which is paid for, however the sale of geese other than in Orkney is illegal.
  9. No l used either 32g no 5 ITM or ITM as l use on the foreshore and was told that it was unneeded. I was reffering to proper fowling on the foreshore
  10. Have been on a few let days where use of lead on duck drives was seen as normal. DEFRA have also done work analysing ducks at game dealers which carried lead and fowlers normally do not shoot enough duck to sell them.
  11. Alternatively get a copy of the charge certificate or registration of title from the land registry
  12. Because we have a weak criminal justice system which favours the perpetrator not the victim. There is only one punishment suitable for low life dross like this. Then again they will doubtless get a brief who will get them a reduced sentence.
  13. The non compliance with shooting fowl is down to driven ducks on commercial shoots who care not what happens, wildfowlers on the shore will be 100% compliant near enough. As ever commercial shoots will be the end of us
