    Is there a possibility of a blocked barrel causing this? Barrel blows up sending shrapnel towards them

    Obvious total pass through of a bullet hitting a second person behine. Don't think that would have happened with shrapnel and having seen at least one handgun explose the shrapnel never went forwards any distance, mainly upwards and a little downwards....violently enough to bed the top strap in the range roof..


    Regarding the fact it was a muzzle loader, even if it was a wad or wads over the pwoder I don't think that wad would pass through enough to hit another person behind.  Somebody loaded a projectile.  The truth will out no doubt.

    Just proves .... muzzle awareness at all times.

  2. Have an old pair of cens which have been very good. I will be having some new ones shortly and will choose another manufactuer purely because of my experience with cens customer relations which was appauling.  I will have a look at thos cfg units.

    Please could you tell me.where is duns?

    Berwickshire, Scottish Borders. Used to be the County Town but with all the changes don't know it's stature today. What I do know is the country around there is awesome shooting country. Unfortunately I am too ol and too far away:mad:

    Had I known all of this technical stuff about cartridges and chokes I may never have taken up shooting. It's all too complicated for my limited brain.


    Just don't let it worry you keep whacking and stacking:good:

    Not surprised. Pray tell, are/were they the ones still advertised on the Hull web-site as Extreme 6s? 

    Unless yours is a canon somewhere north of 7 lbs, I can't see the purpose of stuffing 1&1/8 oz into a 20 bore.

    Question; What is the difference in the energy between a cartridge having a MV of 1250 ft/sec and one at 1450 down range at 50 yards and also the potential difference in pattern quality/density? The two answers jointly reflect the validity of the very old but still very truthful saying about what it is that actually does the killing.

    Maybe needs to change to an 8 bore.

    Our hunting season over hear starts two weeks early for non gun weapons.  So if you hunt with bow/spear/muzzle loader you can hunt two weeks early on public park land. I have never hunted primitive before.  I will try to take a white tail deer this year as soon as I’m confident I can make a clean shot with it. 


    I’m going to try it on a white tail this week.  

    It will do the job if you do. Best of luck just wish I was there to watch:good: Miss our trips to The States.

    😂 At least you’re honest! 
    I swapped to Eley Pigeon Select because my local agricultural outlet stocks them, so they’re easy to get, and really really like them. Have had some astounding days on the decoys with them, through half choke, especially on crows, which I was consistently killing at ranges I consider well out there. Because of this I’d choose them over the Gamebore cartridge given the choice. I have no experience of the HV. 

    And you can accurately tell the difference between a 50 and a 55 yard bird? 

    Beat me to it Scully.

    To be honest, I use more No.7 for game than No.6 because I shoot mostly partridge and the pheasants get the same on a partridge day. The only time I go up to No.6 is for a pheasant day where the partridge are more infrequent or none at all. 
    But I have total confidence in both sizes, don’t really mind which I use, and find more birds with only broken wings with No.5 shot.

    I go back far enough where an ounce and an eighth of 5s was the standard load for everyhting. Until Impax 7s came in that is, then they became the go for cartridge.

    Personally I shoot 7s  as a rule but I do have some factory sixes which funnily enough seem to do the same job.  Put 'em in the pattern.....should have taken my own advice last Friday, couldn't hit a barn door:cry1:

  8. Similar, checked all round the wood no sign checked another area nothing, drove back through the village and one was sat by the phone box and I swear it gave me the finger before bolting into the bushes.

    Checking a new set at the golf course in the morning and the green Keeper commented they would be havin the fattest tree rats in the county so food has gone from the flip top. 

  9. makes my eyes water just thinking about mincing that horseradish but you are correct, fresh horseradish sauce takes a lot of beating. Part of our old garden when I was a kid was devoted to growing horse radish just for that purpose.  My grandmother used to have me prepare it but with a grater and as said it still makes my eyes water.

  10. I used to go ferreting round the back of that place when they were building it.  Flight was poopooed but the Wright brothers proved them wrong. 

    Way above my pay scale to undertsand it but feel sure it will be harnessed eventually.

    It is nice to see such polarised opinion of those in our society who are living off the state on a lifestyle of benefits.

    My wife’s grandmother (in her 90s) tried to refuse or return her winter fuel payment unsuccessfully so donates it to a local food bank charity.

    For someone to spend on another tattoo.  Food banks are the biggest joke out.  For the feckless and idle.
