    Yey! clay busting stuff at 2.30 euros a box of 25 and 36g 5's at 3.80 euros. That will be a credit card filler then.

    Forget the wine....

    I drove home a few years ago with the arse of the estate car trailing the ground between booze and ammo.

    There is a big Decathlon in Lille, their own brand shells were really good.

    If I were to bring anything back from France it would have to be the fin stabilised discarding sabot rounds by Sauvestre. A little pricey but if they are good enough for big piggies I would love to see the effect on deer (in controlled circumstances of course

    There is a huge Decathlon close to Lille.

    Villeneuve d'Asq Campus

    This is one of the 3 main decathlon shops in France. There also is "Terres et Eaux" in Seclin a few minutes south of Lille along the A1 motorway to Paris. Much nicer shop and only fishing and shooting. Normal prices but huge stock of products.
    Decathlons own brand of cartridges are indeed very good.

    I have used those, amazing stuff. I would love to try them with a scoped or sighted shotgun just to see how accurate they could be. They really smack a pig down. I seem to remember they were about €10 for a pack of 5.
