    Shotgun cases

    I've had a shoot today on clays and before i tip the hulls into the bin does anybody want a mixture of
    Eley Olimpic
    Kemien or some such
    and a few Falcon empties
    I ask as the last time I chucked a heap out somebody on the forum asked for some shortly after.

    Can you still get Winchester 571 powder ? . I had some meaty 1 1/2 oz #2 loads ( 2 3/4" case ) and some 1 3/4 oz buffered BB loads in a 3" case , which , thru my Miroku invector plus full choke could reliably club rabbits at 60+ yards

    What calibre? Sissy or real man......remembering real men can shoot so don't need them big bored thing's....
    The main rule of firearms.....Always point firearms in a safe direction
