hello, well done, i am sure others on PW might find interesting,  cheap cheap ceiling wallpaper and a wood pallet, say middle 6 inch circle black/ aim point,   then 30 inch circle then ? inch circle to catch flyers,

I think the local QD has wall paper at £1/1.50 a roll so I might just grab one next time I'm in there. I might paper the whole pallet and then use the 6" am point.

I'll do a few other loads too, I've got some 40g no3 Victory mini magnums, 35g no4 Victory whites. Be interesting to see what happens.

Don’t think I’ve ever seen them , plenty of 32g 6’s , 

Yep. I got my 7s from Just Cart's but I see now that they've gone although the Express web-site still mentions them. Still 7s in 30g Specials though.

Farmboy is right and it's a pain in the rear. The 32g 6&1/2s started to dry up - the best pigeon (not to mention game) load if you wanted to stretch a little - followed by, then, the 7s disappearing. Fortunately/unfortunately the damned arthritis struck and now it's best if I limit things to 1oz and with a bit of effort I can find some fibre loads that suit both me and the guns.

Short barrels are only good for bashing about in thick bush 😉

Can't seem to find the old Winchester trap load anywhere so this seemed to be the next best thing.

The first are (still) the Express Special Game.

The second were the Eley but can't recall the name - something to do with pigeon. In a league of there own now - virtually Hobson's choice for an ounce + - are the Rottweil 32g. Some 28g clay loads about though. A few more Express 30g as well at the pricey end though.

Would the Eley one be a green cartridge and  came in the 200 slab?

I'm afraid I can't remember that either, but lean towards red. Somewhere along the line a 200 carton does ring a bell, but again am not sure.

I know they did some sort of limited edition thing that I'm pretty sure was a 6.5 shot, I'm sure someone will know the name.

If I remember correctly - which we already realise is in serious doubt - there were two different versions.
