This should generate some interest on here.....

Does that mean your not allowed more or less than 1 ,1/8 of an oz and that the shot cant be bigger  than .241 mm 

Surely  they mean 2.41 mm ? 

Or smaller .? 

I guess ideally they provide the carts .just one type

You were popping 90 yard pheasants not so long ago so should be easy for you. 

😂😂  Made me laugh. 

I wonder who will win this highly desirable certificate for luckiest shot on the day. 

Do people really not understand how shot gun patterns work ?

It's the extra 40 yards beyond that where it becomes more trickier Ginge! 😏

When digweed did it, it was using a black gold five shot iirc.

Not sure if his was recognised by Guinness records.

Turn up with a four bore loaded as heavy as can be.

100% doable, but probably 80% luck that out of a completely blown pattern enough pellets hit the target to break it.

For context of the distance if you imagine standing on peg 7 at skeet, it would be the same as shooting at a high house target on the 3rd skeet range down.

Or standing at one end of Twickenham’s pitch and shooting a clay at the other end.

The stray pellet cup. 70 yards past even the most generous range of a shotgun firing shot. 

You may as well mount a static one on a piece of cardboard and let those that want the title to pull the trigger of a mounted gun, it's entirely luck at that range.

Ginger if you think 60 yards is the range of a shotgun, I would challenge you to bare your **** at 100yds and have it shot if you are that certain!

The result would require a trip to A&E without a doubt!

When digweed was shooting that 130 yard target he reckoned he was dropping the shot onto it

It's almost inconceivable that at that range more than one pellet would find the mark (by luck rather than judgement) and even if two did, it's inconceivable that they would have arrived at the exact same moment AND hit the same area in order for them to benefit from the extra oomph of kinetic energy.

This is beyond silly, find a suitable barn on one of your farms (don't worry about damaging it so no need to ask the owner as such), cover one side with paper or cardboard, walk back 130 yards and fire a 32g load of 7's 😑  then come and tell us the resulting "pattern" is anywhere near  distinct enough to assume a hit is anything other than random strikes, not saying the "winner" won't have to hold straight, just that such records can conceivably be won by our collective grans.

It wouldnt mate .

60 yds yes .but no 6 at 100 yds carries very little energy .

 

I was hunting a dove field a few years back and there was hunters about 100-150 yards on the other side.  We got peppered a few times.   It stings a little but it bounces off skin.

We had some fun at a recent flush event, where there was a long crosser (full face) ... estimated to be 120 yards at it's closest.

4 guns, 2 shots each ... and the best any team did was 2 ex. 4 in the sequence. No-one was claiming the kills to be down to good shooting!!

Don’t disagree Hamster, the target will be shot and broken, assuming it is full face and spinning, but other than approximating having the shot in the right patch of sky there the skill ends and the luck begins.

11cm is a very small object at 130yds amidst some very big holes in the pattern.

I've been shot at about 100 yards from a shotgun and it stun very lightly on my t shirt. It was no 6 shot and 30 g. I got hit once on my upper arm.  It didn't leave a mark. I was walking the hedge to pick a long bird that dropped and my mate shot a low one. No one's fault really and it hurt  a teeny tiny but more than falling shot on a clay range. Being shot with a gat gun when a child hurt considerably more. 

The hedge either side of me rustled for about 15 yards either side so one can only guess at the immense spread through his half choke. 

Moving up to 3s or 4s and beyond then yes that would smart however the pattern would be so laughable at that range you may as well close your eyes as you shoot. 

If I were shooting game then yes 60 yards is the max range, preferably 40.  I don't need to exercise my ego when I shoot.

The shot size allowed is 2.41mm English 6.5

Regardless of whether shot hurts or not at 100 or 150 yards. The clay has been broken at 130 yards as the record stands.  Wonder if it can be beat or even equalled.

To promote Northbrook Sports Club, maybe 😳.  Anyway, what's the point in many GWR attempts? (Rhetorical question)
