    Rough shooting cartridges

    Hi i haven't had to buy cartridges for a couple of years as I got a bulk lot. Now I'm getting low I wondered what you guys are using? Mainly pigeon and rough shooting is what I do.

    And Rough shooting could include the odd Duck Goose or Snipe so Non Toxic Cartridges would legally have to be used

    Only if you're shooting over wetland or foreshore, otherwise lead is fine.

    I wish only one cartridge did it all. I would have saved a few bob.

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Haven't got any waterfowl on my farm down here, however, i do carry steel cartridges with me all the time, just in case.
    Rough shooting for me is the odd pigeon flying by, rabbit, all the vermin and the game birds when in season.
