    Cypriot maker widely available down South in the 80's and 90's but for reasons that baffle me you can't get them here any more ! I shot their 32g Victory 550 clay loads which was replaced with a 28g version when CPSA rules changed, would shoot them again in an absolute heartbeat. They also used to do a budget line called Leader which was also excellent. Their Sonic (so called 1600 fps) :lol: was utterly unshootable even in a semi automatic, their Challenger was also a tad thumpy if memory serves.

     

    A very good friend of mine used to rave about their 24g Compak loads way back when nobody used them and I have no reason to doubt him as he was very knowledgeable.

    I know Whittlesey Gun Shop used to stock Victory shells.

     

    Last time I bought some would have been about 5 Years ago.

     

    Prior to that I used to use the 550 and the 480s for clays when living in Norfolk.

    I think you can still buy victory cartridges from Whittlesey. Fine, if you don't mind having your pants pulled down.

    The Victory Chellenger 2 in 24g are very good the 28g kick like a mule and have a hell of a sound wave coming back off anything close by that friends of mine comented on when I shot them. Feel the thump in your chest like the base thump off a big speaker.

    I fancy buying some of these just because of this description. I will keep my eye out for some 28g on my travels.

    I wouldn't bother, unless they have been changed in the years since I shot them. I would not buy more in 28g. Plenty of nice to shoot cartridges out there.

    Many years ago, I shot a few thousand yellow skeet shells and the red case 8s - both brilliant. I got some last year - the green case Sporters. I wasn't impressed at all.

    I think Blackpool Gun Club stock Challengers and that's not too far from Chorley. Give them a call (number on Blackpool Sporting Clays website) to check. If they don't have them anymore ring Richard Blacker (number from post #11) and he will advise on your nearest stockist.

    Got some to try recently, (Starlight, Challenger and Sporter) haven't shot any yet but all have high quality plastic hull and neat crimp. Just a pain sourcing them, especially game loads in FW.
