    Braithwell Nr Ravenfield S.Yorks

    Just show up, although it can get very busy at 10 so if shooting either by yourself or in a pair it's best to leave it until maybe 10.45 then you tend to get round with less waiting at each stand.

    Braithwell Nr Ravenfield S.Yorks

    Yeah the field was a bit churned up the last time I went a couple of weeks ago. Would probably be alright if you park on the left side near the hedge line. It's a fun place to have a few shots and at the price it is you can't complain. I'm off to the shooting show on Sunday otherwise I'd probably nip for a round or two.

    Braithwell Nr Ravenfield S.Yorks

    Yep, still going strong every Sunday 10-12. £5 a round of 25 birds 👍
  4. Pinewood is plug and play. Open Wednesday - Saturday, no need to book. As said, its a great ground with a very friendly atmosphere and some cracking targets.

    The wait

    Fingers crossed you're one of the lucky ones that has a fast turn around. It does happen for some every so often. Yes, he can buy it, put it on his cert and notify SYP of the purchase and keep it in his cabinet. Then when your cert arrives transfer it over to your cert and notify SYP of the transfer.

    The wait

    Yep unfortunately. This was coming up 4 years ago now so it may have gotten quicker. But 5-6 months is a pretty normal waiting period it would seem. Some people I believe have had it stretch to closer to 12months before receiving theirs after feo visit.

    The wait

    Sounds like I'm too late to the party on this one. If memory serves me right I think mine was around 5-6 months wait from visit to it landing on my door mat, I'm also South Yorkshire. 👍

    3" 410 cases

    After once fired 3" 410 cases, ideally fiocchi or eley extralongs as they seem to crimp best on my sizemaster but will try others. Can collect if close-ish to Sheffield area or happy to pay postage if it was for a decent quantity of cases. Many thanks Spower 👍

    ff6 flapper

    I believe that's called the auto bouncer. Looks an effective piece of kit but is a pretty hefty price tag for it and could be a bit fragile to transport?

    ff6 flapper

    I've got an FF5 which I imagine will be very similar apart from the FF6 now has a more powerful motor. Not a bad word to say about my FF5, a doddle to mount birds on it and it's worked faultlessly. I wouldn't hesitate to buy an FF6 if I fancy adding a second flapper. Mine is on a random timer which is fine for most days, think I'd grow tired of having to use a remote. 👍

    Benelli 828u

    There was a post asking for thoughts on this gun started a few days ago, have a scroll down and read through the comments. The gun room on YouTube has done an in depth review of the gun too which is good to watch. Not handled one myself so can't comment but they certainly do look nice! 👍

    New to shotshell reloading. (12g)

    I've been reloading for about 18 months now and the reloading bug bit me bad! Like you I was very fortunate to have a member on this forum offer to show me the ropes and provide me with what I needed to have a go myself. You will learn so much picking the brains of someone who's been doing it a while and talk and show you through stuff. Started with a Lee Loadall, great piece of kit. Now I'm quickly running out of room in my shed for my reloading stuff! Just got up and running reloading for the 410 now. It's mightily satisfying breaking/dropping stuff with your homeloads. Have fun. Spower 👍

    White Goose

    Another excellent shot GG👍
  15. Yeah from what I'd found everything seemed around the 13grain mark with lil gun. Just waiting on the evo wads to arrive at Fes then I'll get some loaded up. Thanks again 👍
  16. I'm after recipes for 3" 410 loads using Lil Gun, particularly Fibre or Cork recipes. Wondered if anyone would be kind enough to share any they have? Thanks, Spower 👍
  17. Much appreciated HW95J 👍
  18. I'm hoping the weather holds out on Sunday morning as I'm taking a trip up to near Bridlington on the motorbike to collect 3 tubs of lil gun. CGSG selling Hodgdon powders at a cracking price 👍
  19. Hi all, Does any one know anywhere in South Yorkshire where I can get Vectan SP3 or another powder suitable for 17-19gram fibre loads for the .410? Thanks, Spower
  20. Clay&Game charge silly prices for shipping Powder/Primers but just had a look on Henry Krank and they're showing powder shipping costs £14.40 which seems very reasonable, certainly compared to C&G.
  21. That's exactly the kind of load I'm after. I'll look into Henry Krank only about 40 miles from me so not too far. Thanks for that 👍
