    Stock length

    I believe the standard length of pull should be the trigger blade to the centre of the butt pad.

    Mk4 Clio clutch

    Hi guys i have a mk4 1.5dci Clio in need of a clutch. I have plenty of experience of doing Land Rover clutches and I’m currently on a mechanics apprenticeship, albeit on trains, so experience is there. I have access to a full garage with 2 post lift. What’s it like working on a front wheel drive? I’d like to do this myself but just don’t have full confidence with having not tackled a FWD before and I don’t know what’s involved. Thanks, Jamie

    Steel rated shotgun

    I'm assuming he says that because most new guns with 3" chambers made these days do have steel proof so in 20 years it would be accurate to say that 3" chamber means steel proof on most guns

    Steel rated shotgun

    haha that is very true! it's just that in my cabinet of 11 guns everything with a 3" chamber is steel proofed.

    Steel rated shotgun

    as a general rule how is that incorrect? I've just had a quick look and other than old live pigeon guns nigh on everything else with a 3" inch chamber is expect to be steel proofed I'm happy to be informed otherwise but without going into specific makes and models I imagine my statement is pretty accurate.

    Steel rated shotgun

    If it has steel proof it will take any steel load, HV or standard of the correct chamber length but it is recommended to stick to 1/2 choke or less. If a gun is not steel proofed then it *should* be okay with standard, lightweight steel loads through less than 1/2 choke but that choice is yours

    Steel rated shotgun

    You'll have to find a gun that you like and then google it to check, as a general rule anything with a 3" chamber will be steel shot proofed.
  10. Hello, does anyone know where to source 80g gamekings? I have a good load developed but now can't find any more of these bullets. I can find 85g game king or 80g blitz, have they just changed the labelling or discontinued the 80g game king? Jamie

    Thanks to everyone for the advice but I've just been advised the family is increasing by 1 so all shooting purchases are on hold! Thanks all jamie

    I have been tempted by the CG guns but it's the custom fitting that's temting me more than anything, my budget is around £3.5k but I'm struggling to find prices as there's such a range of prices advertised for the same model of gun. I'll speak to castle guns as I'm in the north east but if there's a stand out dealer elsewhere then I would travel as this is a big sum of money for me. Jamie
