    Perhaps "same idiots, different bullshit" ...

    The question, I would like to ask is, what do we do with our 20g lead ammo ... dig a nice little hole and bury it ... get a refund ... use it all up
    shooting clays???

    Of course, steel is worse than any lead pellet ... lead pellets are often encapsulated under the skin, steel will bring about gangrene in time ...

    Yeah, go ahead and reinvent the frecking wheel ... the wheels on the bus go round and round ... scream like noise ...!!!!

    Eeebees it is with a great deal of regret that I must inform you that we live in a modern over politically corrected world brought about by an ever increasing number of bunny loving, tree hugging, namby pamby, trendy lefty liberals that have decided that is to all of our benefit for society to dumb down and soften our approach to all things fun. We can either yield to the idiotic changes these uber twats impose or flip them the bird and advise them that we have completely run out of shits to give. Shoot your lead with gay abandon chick and all power to your right arm as you do. From this we will now breed a following which will result in a NZHS lead only gathering where we will just shoot the living hell out of anything we choose and collectively say "to hell with these twatish morons.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You could always use it on wabbits, hares and such. Oh and Geese since they are no longer a game-bird. I may be wrong but I thought the ban was only applied when hunting waterfowl? So we can still use it for upland hunting?

    Ill be bringing out my hammergun which can only handle black powder, as it seems I can get an exemption. Will just have to organise a spotter to tell me if I hit them.

    not at all silly EeBees
    in steel the 3 inch black cloud 2,s are the only real option if you can get them.
    but in lead i use gamebore 2 3/4 inch 30 gram 4,s and or 3,s for close decoying birds with the fiochhi 30 gram load of two,s for the last load or two in the gun.
    i used to use the 3 inch fiochhi 36 gram load in 2,s but found it unneccessary mostly, not to mention cheek rattling.
    pass shooting geese hell yes the 3 inchers takes up spot 3,4,5, in the mag with 1,and 2, filled by the 2 3/4 inch 30 gram 2,s with a modified choke for all goose hunting.
    unfortunatly pass shooting geese flighting off the river to stubble fields is pretty much fucked.
    thanks to constant pressure and greatly reduced goose numbers the birds wont even land in the paddock the want to feed in.
    but stage in paddocks a bit away from them and watch till dark almost for any danger signs and if they see dekes ''forget about it''

    I shot with a guy who used a side by side 20 using 5 and 6 shot lead. He was getting just as many as anyone else, but focusing on head shooting them.
    Overkill is still dead.

    4-5 shot works for me. The 20 is my sons gun but I have to buy the ammo and have not seen larger shot than 4,5 and 6 in stores locally.
