Custom printed loads for 3000 or more 

Fibre wad only

Worth a look

 

 

 

 

 

Are you anything to do with them?

 

That website opens to a front page with nothing but a logo... is it broken or something?

Also what sets them aside from the tried and tested brands? Do they list their components?

 

I used the cheapest clear pigeon 30g 6's today and dropped some good height pheasant... be good to know whats good about these if they cost more?

No I am not. 
 

Don’t know about website.

 

Nothing sets them aside. Didn’t say it was. Just posted about them as may help locals or people looking for something.

 

Good news about your Clear Pigeons.

I had the first 500 from him, on this occasion he personally delivered them to the door as the courier let him down. Lovely lad and always happy to answer questions. It’s good to support new businesses, when so many are failing around us.

What are they like?

Also are they 65, 67 or 70mm? 

 

I messaged on insta when he put up a post asking what people want in 20b... I said a 25g 7 shot would be ideal.

As I have neither fb nor insta I can't look, curious to know if he'd do an 1 1/8oz of 7's. 

Doubt it as not a desirable load for many.

There always seems to be positive comments about the old winchester load, with plenty saying they would still use them, I think if they were out there they'd sell.

Get an order together and see if he’d load you some.

Not many would as most clay grounds have a 1oz limit.

Is that 30g of 7 shot? I am also surprised that they are not about.

7 shot is fine for game shooting, many say it is the pattern that kills the birds, having several pellets hit the birds, rather than one or two bigger pellets.

That's the one problem. The guy has probably done his homework/ research and found hardly anyone uses 7s for anything but particularly game. The other problem is is that it didn't tell him why not - they're like hens' teeth. If he produces a decent cartridge he could have a niche market with some 28 and 30g 7s. That is of course until the big boys find out and realise their mistake and drive him out of business.

Think that's probably about the size of it. The only place I've seen actual English 7's is on just cartridges and I certainly wouldn't pay them prices. I've got lucky in a few shops that have had old stock before but it doesn't happen very often. 

If i could get a 32g 7 load I'd use it for all my wing shooting.
