  1. We have been using the Gamebore silver Stella for some years as the landowner does not want plastic wads used. So it is these or bismuth cartridges. The silver steel are more expensive than plastic wadded ones but as we do not shoot big numbers it is ok.

    Best semi auto

    Swapped my 303 for a franchi affinity because I needed Steel proof to shoot ducks, also 3" chamber. I know beretta did a 3" but quite rare

    cross slide vice

    Have a look back in the craft section 27th June was last post in "advice on milling" there are even some videos . I use my lathe to do any milling by taking off the tool post and fitting a 90 deg angle plate and a small vice then putting tool in chuck. It works ok on softer metals but even then struggles on steel.

    cross slide vice

    I have tried this and it does not work, you will get to much vibration and problems with power. There was a post on this same subject not long back with several replys

    franchi intensity

    I have had the Affinity for a couple of years and really pleased with it , put a lot of shells through it with no trouble at all. Couple of friends have now also brought them after trying mine. If the Intensity is anywhere as good you will be OK

    Gamebore Silver Steel Fibre

    We use Gamebore silver steel all the time for our wild bird inland wildfowling. Had a couple of lovely high teal this evening with them. They are fibre wadded and I would recommend them to anyone.

    Yes that's the ones, we have to use the fibre wadded ones because the land owner does not want plastic wads about

    Use non toxic cartridges or you will be breaking the law. Gamebore silver steel are the load you have mentioned. They are 3" cartridges but we use them for inland duck and geese and the are good cartridges. With the benifit of being fibre wadded so no plastic waste
