  1. TSS15 #7 using black powder has good patterning and penetration i found when using it thru my muzzle loader .Given the velocity of black compared to nitro it seemed to perform well--but then i had cylinder in both barrels and the range was 40 yards /50 yards maximum
  2. My old man had one for decades ,gave it to me in the 80's and i had it for a few years but flogged it when i gave up the FAC. Cracking gun it was.We used a single point red dot sight on it .Only weak point was the selection spur that could shear with lots of use( and we used it a lot!)
  3. good guns.ive used mine on pinks,pigeon and a driven pheasant shoot a while back.unless lightly choked as some pedersolis now are it will of course have a sensible range of 30 yards maximum on game.Does look a tad like the woods split on that picture
  4. Any person in Fife area wondering if they can or should develop a piece of ground for duck but may need a hand let me now.Just a passing thought.I dug a few out in the past with varying levels of success. Im thinking of looking about for a farm with some undeveloped land or perhaps a lease on such land but quite happy to buddy up with someone likeminded. Massive returns not the priority(for me anyways).
  5. my outlander was that synthetic wood .Looked great mind you .
  6. saw one identical go for 900 at auction not long back
  7. agreed nic,there is a plus i suppose
  8. I remember back in the late 70's during a severe snowstorm we we were sat on the sea wall on the Eden estuary up by St Andrews .Late afternoon ,tide full in , we watched thousands and thousands of pigeon migrating south. Coming over from Tentsmuir forest area by RAF Leuchars ,right across the estuary and on down towards Anstruther.We shot a couple when we initially realised there was a bizzare flight on ,to discover these pigeon were bloody huge. Stunning birds not like our locals at all. Really rich deep colours on them and as i say,massive.We decided to let them be given it was hellish weat
  9. For far too many people especially younger shooters its about nothing other than pulling the trigger and shotcams. I find it sad the way wildfowling has became through social media
  10. My tool can be adapted from 3.5 right down to 25/8 cases.Ill be reloading the short 10's mainly
  11. My old10 bore rto machine is not behaving nowadays-i could do with a replacement.?????
  12. Hi m8 ,yes ive loaded since i was a kid back in the 70's.Got all i need apart from my 10 bore cylinder resizer thats disappeared someplace.Ive not done 2 5/8 rounds before.in fact the last time i had anything to do with 2 5/8 10 bores was cleaning my old mans rotary tolley 10 bore when i was a wee lad.The new gun below.im going to see if i can pick up a hand skiver if at all possible as my rto leaves a double tram line these days due to it being a tad wobbly/thinning the plastic may help keep the roll over even.
  13. yes just back from proof house earlier this year im told so she can handle nitro loads
  14. Im looking for as many loads as possible black powder and smokeless .Both for lead and bismuth. New toy cometh forth cheers. Allen;.
