    mec 600 bushes

    I have a couple of spare ones you can have if you pm your details I will send them but you will have to bore them out.
  2. Hope you are right , I was given some years ago and was curious to know what was in them so took one apart and found a solid ball in it which wouldn’t even look in the barrel of my gun, pays to check.
  3. Do not shoot them in any gun especially in a gun with any choke if you do you will be looking for a new set of barrels or worse.

    Gout !!!!!!!

    Yes had it in the knee and elbow never had pain like it since then I have been taking 80mgs of Adenuric ( febuxostat) it took nearly a year to work just as I was told by the doctor but well worth the wait. must say for the last two months I have been breaking them in half and still no problems eg 40 mg.
