  1. Yeph, I also have noticed a few ‘slow’ comp x cartridges and I’ve changed to sporting 100 8s 28grms (light recoil) and amber 8shot 24grms (eley) both seem to work ok , both with the o/u and semi autos, fast enough for general shooting both are 70mm cartridges, a little more expensive but well worth it , both provide similar patterns , effective out to 40 mtrs +.
  2. Hull Superfast is a good cost effective cartridge, I’ve used them for more than 5 years without any problems. I was at Coniston on the day when a barrel was breached with an obstruction, and spoke to the to the shooter, I believe he was was using CompX! I have had a number of misfires over the years, generally caused by ‘light strikes’, also had a batch of Fiocchi 28gauge that discharged ok but the primer came out of the base when fired and caused a jam on my A400, strange!! A light measure or damp powder can cause misfires, I also had a slab of Hull 21grm CompX which produced several li
  3. I shoot a couple of field semi autos one has a 26” & one a 28” barrel both shoot well in most situations great versatility by simply fitting extended chokes, giving the ability to handle most clays, sports trap, double rise etc, for skeet simply use the flush chokes . A shorter barrel will aid faster target acquisition, reduce front end weight and make the gun easier to handle for a beginner or a person of slight build. With good cartridge selection enjoyable to shoot, with out the experience and skill required to use a longer barrel style. It does require a lot of skill to use anything lo
  4. Thanks for all your advice, good idea to check out the CPSA website, didn’t think of that! Will definitely check it out!
  5. Just found Straight Shooters website, does anyone have any experience of using the ground, it states that it is a booking ground? Also found Swinton estate which apparently offers clay mate practice for regular shooters, near Ripon? Hopefully visiting the area in the new year and thought about giving them a go, if I can find out what the grounds are actually like? Any information would be great! Thanks!
  6. I’ve visit the shooting show at the NEC on several occasions , I found it pretty good but very crowded, the Northern Shooting Show held at the Yorkshire Show ground slightly better as although very well attended plenty of out side stands etc, (which provide social distance) also a shooting line within the show ground where try guns are available, Clay comps, practical shotgun, air gun comps, have a go stands for air rifle, .22 small bore as well as the usual dealers stands for optics, field gear, and refreshments. Provided the weather is reasonable a good day out!
  7. Yeph, 70mm length cartridges are required for most modern semi automatic shot guns, as this length of shells provide the necessary gas to operate the action effectively, 65mm cartridges will generally jam up and not feed the next shell into the chamber, of course you can always fire one at a time!
  8. Thanks for the reply, all info helps, on referring to the hand book it actually mentions this can occur! Having only inertia trigger fired guns previously, it’s more likely that it’s my trigger release is what is causing this to happen! Hope so, and I will get it right and call it running in! I did some dry firing tests using ‘snap caps’ and the trigger unit functioned correctly every time, still seems a bit strange for this to happen on such a quality shot gun!!
  9. Mmmm! Just got a 725 Black in 20gauge, I also seem to have a problem with the trigger resetting for the second shot, for it appears only to occur When the lower barrel is selected to fire first. I have used a selection of cartridges in 21grms 65mm Hull Pro Twenty & Eley CT, Eley Amber70mm , which is a powerful load at this weight of shell, but not much difference, still locks up. So far doesn’t seem to occur when the top barrel is selected to fire first! If after firing the 1st barrel I then open the action, remove the fired round and replace it, as the action has now been ‘re-cocked’
  10. All ways in my sight, arms length. Or stowed securely, never left loafing, asking for trouble!!
  11. 28gauge excellent, providing you use a suitable cartridge for your needs, ok, got an o/u any shell’s will work light to carry, if shooting clays 21gram 9s does the trick. A400, minimum wt needs to be 21grms and 70mm cartridge to recycle the action efficiently, Rhino do extended chokes which pattern well. The pattern at 30yrds if compared to a12gauge using similar chokes and cartridges (eg 24gram /full choke) the pattern is very similar in spread, however the 12 has more pellets ,but the 28s coverage is more than adequate for reasonable clays and light rough shooting!
  12. I am currently considering getting a Silver Pigeon, with two sets of barrels 28gauge&410 , looking for general advice, I believe it is counted as one gun for certification purposes??
