Eley vip pro eco steel

Picked up 50 if these today and was just wondering how others have found them? Got the 32g 3s . Wanted to try something a bit friendly on our countryside

I have used lots of these since their release. They are a good cartridge. No better or worse than any other. I've used the 3's on the shore and 5's on my pond and both do the job. I have used the 28g 7's on clays too but as yet do not see any need as I shoot lead with a fibre wad

I used some 32g 5's on saturday, only had one shot on a mallard and it dropped so in this most limited of tests I say they worked - seem quite soft shooting as well but maybe that was the five layers I was wearing!!

Good as any other steel but their positive point is the bio wad which others don’t have

That's exactly why I got them . I usually use 36g 3s but seeing as these are bio wads thought I would give them a try . Anyone know why they are only available in 2 3/4 ?

I have been using the 3" Gamebore silver steel which are fibre wad. Our landowner has said no plastic wads due to livestock on land.

One would expect them to be used in more of the range next year. I’d hope all their normal plastic wads are replaced by those

So much for the eley man he should do his homework these wads are not new the manufacture got a very large EU grant to make develop them and they were in use by Armusa back in March 2013. They are made from PVA.

Supposedly they are different. I used Armusa as the distributor was near me and the wads certainly look different and dissolve differently.
