    Aluminium Gates.

    You just have to be careful if the ally meets steel.Galvanic corrosion could occur particularly if you are on the coast.

    Good gunshop

    Laurence was there last time I called in.Didnt realise he had left.So it may not be as good now.Bond and Bywaters used to be good too but not been for years.

    Helping hand

    Brilliant.Mine all helped dress pheasants and ducks.Came rabbiting on odd times.When we had our small syndicate they all came on the beating line from an early age.They had a good understanding of everything and the ways in which food was gathered.More importantly they still support local butchers and producers.

    Just curious.Where did the RHD come from?Was it introduced by man?

    Lead fouling

    As Westley said. "If the cartridges have been stored at the ground, thestore room is unlikely to be heated and withtemperatures dropping well below freezing, theperformance of ANY cartridges would be affected". That was my first thought.

    Lead fouling

    Never thought of that as I don't normally use fibre was.Devil to shift though.
  10. I bought a slab of fiochii tt100 cartridges from the clay ground this morning as I had run out of my usual cheddites now todays were fibre wad the lead fouling in the barrels of both guns was terrible particularly just after the chambers. I can see the reasoning behind fibre wads over plastic but is this amount of fouling to be expected.I really struggled to shift it.

    Nice little .410

    Was at the local clay ground this morning.There was a chap shooting a beautiful little .410 over and under and smoking Clay's too.It was a Redolfi EOS light,What a great gun in adult size.I struggled today with my 12 bore. Just proves how capable this calibre is in the right hands.

    What's that thing called?

    Mine had a hook with a wooden t handle which went in one hole and came out of the other so in effect the plate hung from the centre when lifted.

    Dumped Pheasants...

    Certainly doesn't happen near me.All the shoots near me give them to the guns,beaters and locals.
