    bye the bye i patterned gamebores 12 gauge 30 gram steel 2.s at about 30 feet on the f&g mallard drake target.
    oops
    the wad went thru the middle and the steel 2.s tore holes everywhere else lol looked like a buckshot strike.
    hope falcon has the sence to go for the new plated bismuth for thier loads and not repeat the mistakes others have found with it.
    im usein12 bore eley vip 3.s on parries and am so far not impressed out of twin imp/cyl chokes patterns great kills not so.

    I received my bismuth from Gunworks the other day which from what I can tell is the stuff from Falcon. It’s not a copper colour or anything but may be tin or a zink type plating I’m not sure. I’ll post a picture when I get home.

    At that price you should be making jewelry out of it not shotgun loads. Be interesting to see how it patterns.

    Yip which is why I still do it. Shot my first duck at 10 years old and now nearly 40 years later I have never missed an Opening. Numbers up here are nothing what they used to be though. the lower Waikato used to be called the duck factory of NZ, that has not been the case since the late ninety's.
    Which reminds me, time to go spray the pond.
