    So some dark clothes and a hat should do the trick no need to go Rambo style

    Home reloading in the uk .

    For me I’m just after a cheep cartridge to use down the clay ground I don’t take it to seriously just a chilled afternoon and a bit of practice for game season to get on the pheasants and ducks come game season I will buy carts ready done unless I find a proven mix for game

    Home reloading in the uk .

    I’m not sure what the p & p is for the bits from clay and game not cheep I would think as powder and primers are dangerous goods a load all is £70 carts about £10 for 100 my time well there never enough of it just cartridges are 20 miles down the road so Change from £10 in fuel I hope and no Labour time
  8. Might sound a odd question or ramdom but is home reloading any cheaper than going out and buying a thousand for clays live had a look on clay and game and got some load data etc now from my working out ( I’m bad at maths ) I would be reloading 70mm carts for 24g 7.5 i will need powder which is £38 for a tub NOBELSPORT GM3 500g I should get just over 300 loads out of it at 0.11 ea primers box of 1k is 37.50 so 0.03 ea shot 10kg7.5 lead £36. / 0.08 ea Wads 500 bag £12 / 0.02 ea So if I reload 300 a (tub of powder ) It works out at 24p ea or £72 for 300 or £240 per 1k are my maths right if they are would it not be cheaper to just go and buy 1k of tt1s for £189 at just cartridges? Thanks guys

    Not ever, never

    As with reversing into a space that’s a good driving habit as your not ment to reverse from a minor to a major so a space to a road or a drive to a road etc i like both and want both trading my merc for a disco fuel wise I think going from lpg to anything else it’s going to feel painful
