    The storm

    Its worked well for me at the start of the storm. Shot 2 Canada's and sat back and watched the rest. Was a great flight. Wind was in its 40s so not overly strong but was fairly wet. Didn't bother going out again.
  2. I'm having a major clear out and I have the following 12g cartridges for sale. 100 eley lightning 36,gram 3s. 25 RC atomic steel 34g 1s 30 gamebore mammoth 36g 3s 10 gamebore magnum steel BBB. 10 X gamebore 3.5 42 grm 3s 10x gamebore 3.5 42 grm 1s. To sell as a job lot. Buyer collects. Must have shotgun cert,. Based near Exeter ,Devon. £60.
  3. I'm planning ahead of myself a little , I've always had a friend of mine load for me but I really do need grow up and learn to do it myself instead of pestering him. Got some Bismuth coming which I've asked him to load for me then I'm going to start having a go myself.
  4. How much would you like for it? Thankyou that's very nice of you. Is this Mr Clark ?
  5. Good evening , has anyone got the above they want to sell. I'm not worried about missing bushes ect as I will only be using it for resizing, priming and crimping. Many thanks Ross
  6. Hi bishop. I ended going for for a thomas wild 12 , decided it would be more practical for me and will get more use. Picked her up tonight, in very good condition ,. My friends going to load some 40/42 gram Bismuth 2s for me to try in it. It's nitro proofed to 1& 1/2 Ounce with full and xtra full so should be good out to 45yard,. Will be just right on a windy night and some low pinks up north.
  7. Thankyou Holloway. I did wonder if I could getaway without the Lee loader. Just resizing would be the issue. Johns not far from me and would be where I was heading for components anyway. I will only fire 20/30 goose loads a year so not a lot. I use the 10 for most of my fowling. I'm getting shot of my modern guns now and going old school. For the little I do nowadays I want to enjoy it more.
  8. Good afternoon. I'm about to purchase a t.wild 12g 3inch hammergun. Tight choked 30inch barrels. It's nitro proofed for 1 1/2 ounces . Im looking for a fibre /felt goose load in Bismuth. I thinking 40 grams of Bismuth 2s would be something useful to 40 yards. I'm going to buy a leeloader for loading but I'm new to reloading shotguns. I've always had a mate load for me. Many thanks Ross.
  9. Ive seen one on gun star , t Harrison 3inch that I'm going to message about. I have a friend that has used a 2 7/8 th and 3inch for years and shoots well with them. Price of Bismuth has always put me off but I've decided to just bite the bullet.
  10. I've seen the ones in Holt's , will have a better look through later. Thanks bishop. The ones seen have all be choked full and full or similar ,I wouldn't want a light choked version. I would happily go for a 3 inch 12 hammer if I could find one.
  11. I've got a 3.1/2 ten already but just fancy something lighter and older. For most of my shooting a 2 7/8th will do just fine. Would be not much difference to a 3 inch 12 I imagine. We don't get high geese down here in the south west. 20yard Canada's
  12. Good evening. I'm looking for a 10bore with 2 7/8 chambers or 3inch . Not looking for something fancy just something that I can use on the foreshore. Ive always wanted to use a older fowling piece with a bit history. Will load with Bismuth/tungsten etc.
  13. Thankyou Dave. I've had a kicks in most of wildfowling guns for years , as this is o/u I will need to purchase two which is the best part of £150. I've heard good reviews on briley and a few other so just seeing if I stick to old faithful or try something new.
  14. Good evening. I'm looking to get a set of aftermarket chokes for my Bettinsoli. Was thinking of getting some kicks full and xtra full , are there any other makes worth looking at . Briley,teague etc. ? For flighting geese with large steel shot ,1,BB,BBB etc. Cheers
  15. Use the PayPal option on his website and it will go through. Site doesn't except card payments hence your problems getting through.
  16. I've ordered plenty from Kevin. Always good service. He's a one man band so he might just be on holiday. I've had issues with his email address in the past , I just text him now. Pretty sure his numbers on the page. ( I'm not going to put his number on here just incase he doesn't want it shown anymore. ).
  17. If payment doesn't come through I will take please.
  18. I've got one of these , cracking scope. Although you might struggle selling it at that price. There £330 new. They don't make this model anymore. The new model (wa) are more expensive
  19. Good afternoon. Shimano beast master stc shore and boat. Very strong rod,suitable for overseas spinning ,heavy and light gear. This is a 2 tips version, it's never been used,. Bought for a holiday that never happened a few years back cost me 180 . £120 plus postage.
  20. Good morning. I have the following for sale. #Orvis tls power matrix rod, 7 foot 4 weight mid flex 6.0, 4 piece #orvis battenkill 3/4 reel Both are immaculate and only used a couple of times. This was part of my late friend's fishing equipment, when he passed his partner gave it to me. I will never use this so I would like to sell this and give the money back to her, £150

  22. I've just found the one your looking at, on gun trader. I think it's a lot of money for what it is. Better off getting a greylag 10, will handle steel loads then. Mine does very well
