  1. Two friends of mine went clay shooting 6/7 years ago,long story short had a fibre wad stuck in the barrel, only noticed because of lack of recoil and the sound of the bang.On investigation it was very damp/wet powder in his cartridges, that were incorrectly stored cartridges. (In a cellar).
  2. There has been a photo degradable in there VIP range for some time so what's the difference and it's cheaper than fibre in the 20 bore
  3. I have 8 shot M2 and you can't change the tube its fixed. Had a similar conversation when i brought it, it's FAC and that's it
  4. +1 had a7000 grade 1 30" sporter for 25+years didn't miss a beat in tens of thousands of rounds, sold it for a mk 60 high pheasant grade 5, oh dear what a mistake, been back to browning twice in 3 years.
  5. Bloody Hell we're being ripped off here in the Midlands just looked at JC, £30/1000 dearer on most Fiocchi's
  6. Off the top of my head £240 ish and they are very nice cartridges too.
  7. Not always, my Fiocchi 20 bore GFL no.6s state 2.6mm on the box which is English 6 i believe and there web page does say some are loaded in true English sizes. Hope this helps
  8. £100 per thousand cheaper because he's not sponsoring a world champion and several you tube channels
  9. Has anyone got one or use one. How do they rate them. Or is there any good alternatives. My old oil drum has died.
  10. Always buy the cheapest,and if you don't get on with them, try the next cheapest.
  11. Express 20 bore 28g #7 Just Cartridges £309/1000
  12. Well to be honest i'm not convinced the quality is there any more in Browning/Miroku brand. Had a Miroku 7000 for 25+ years put tens of thousands of cartridges or more through it, didn't miss a beat and the same for a Browning 425 20 Bore,15 years, faultless. Changed for two, 32" high pheasant models one 12 one 20 three years ago, both had firing pin issues and the fore end is loose on the 20 bore after less than 2000 rounds, probably less than that in the 20 bore. Ps. Checked both and the bottom ejector is easier running than the top on both. Beginning to wish i hadn't change.
  13. What can we mix with maize to keep it standing for longer. Two or three of are maize game crops are in the open and if we're lucky we can shoot them up until December ,but then the wind blows them flat and they practically useless. It will need to be able to be sprayed with a pre em herbicide compatible with maize.
  14. Two or three years ago i used Black Gold 32g 6s , Fiocchi Sporting PIgeon 6s and Fiocchi F3 game in 6s through the season and the Fiocchi's were easier on the shoulder and killed just as well as the Black Gold and between £75 and over £100 /1000 cheaper, guess what i don't buy now. Also Eley pigeon Select if i can't get Fiocchi's
