    Cheddite royal drive are as good as Hellfires chrono at some speed and a lot cheaper in fact cheap than black gold and other top game loads with the advantages of copper 

    Are these the carts your using welshwarrior ?

    Cheddites do make a very good cartridge.

    Not cheap but extra few pounds per shoot isn't much.

    IMHO .. up to 50 yards and you can use pretty much anything from Superfast to Black Gold, and with the right skill and choke ... dead is dead.

    Knowing how patterns thin after 50 yards ... and knowing that if you're paying for 50+ yard stuff ... then provided the results are an improvement, I can see sense in using the Copper stuff.

    Yes I used Hellfires last season loaded by gamebore and this year I’ve used Cheddite in the main.

    I will look to try some for next season.

    I've mainly used on higher and later season birds. Dark Storm and NSI Doors both 32g 5 shot. Early season 25g and 28g 6 for partridges and early pheasants.

    Going to have to give this new spangly shot a try.

    Got a slab of Zenith 36/4 to use at Warter Priory tomorrow. I'll let you know what I think of them.

    Wasn't over impressed, persevered with them killed some decent pheasants. But pure fibre are not good enough for much over 55yds is my conclusion except keeping pickers up busy.

    Yep, it's the old, old story from 100 years or more ago - pattern fails before energy and it's pattern that kills.
