    425 Westely Richards

    Is there anyone in the UK or Europe that makes 425 Westly Richards brass or ammo. I have some Bertram brass but I really do not care for it

    Try Kynamco or even Westley Richards themselves, although they are not a firm that I would choose to use!

    I was at Kynamco this evening and they still make that calibre.

    Kynamco load this cartridge but buy in their cases. I'm not sure but think that they may be sourcing their cases from Bertram?

    I have visited their factory in Bournville Birmingham twice when they did some work on a 12g for me they were very accomodating and reasonable on costs but I suppose you can only speak as you find.

    Lucky old you! I've experience of Westley Richards, or rather the Clodes, father and son, dating back some thirty years plus.

    I took my father's gun to be repaired (it uses a Westley Box ejector system) thinking that they would know how to do that sort of work.

    How wrong I was! Told the gun was done and it still had EXACTLY the same fault as when it went in for repair! So they "did it again"...and still EXACTLY the same fault, then tried to claim that the gun was unable to be reapired as it was of poor quality!

    Which was odd seeing as the part where the fault lay was the Westley Box! Made by Westley Richards in the 1910s or thereabouts!

    So got it done properly, in the trade, in Birmingham.

    Walter Clode was a man with a high opinion of himself and so, it appears, is Simon Clode. A pity that my end result of the work they for me did nothing but disappoint.

    But certainly their new premises are truly beautiful that is for sure.

    I took my Father-in-law and my gun which is also a 1910 !!
