Thread: Gunshop (ammo) at Bisley ?

  1. #1

    Gunshop (ammo) at Bisley ?

    On the basis of a recommendation on another thread I rang Fultons at Bisley to see what ammo they had in stock in 30.06 and 6.5x55 and the answer was, none !

    In particular I was looking for some PRVI Partisan and they said they don't stock it, other than a bit of 308 FMJ. They weren't able to point me in the direction of anyone else at Bisley, either.

    Does anyone on the forum know of / can recommend somewhere either on camp or in the vicinity that stocks hunting ammunition ? I'm heading down there next week. I'd like to try some PRVI just because if my rifles like it the cost saving would be welcome, but I'd be fine with Norma or Federal as well.

    Much appreciated.

    Mauser M03.

    As far as I know, it's more or less impossible to buy stalking ammunition in Bisley, although it may be worth called Ray Ward, who have a branch there, given that they do stock a few stalking rifles. All the other gunshops there are just into target rifles and military stuff. I'd be interested to know what Ward's say by the way, as I'll shortly be looking for places to buy stalking ammunition in London which is going to be a barrel of laughs.

    Best of luck. The West End gunmakers sometimes stock a narrow selection of ammo at a big markup. Otherwise there is the gunshop in Barnet which has decent prices. I usually stock up at countryside gunshops when out stalking.

    I'm still waiting for the Met to get back to me about my FAC application five weeks ago, but when that comes through, I'm told there's a 10-12week lead time on the rifle I want to order. This will give me two to three months to play "find the ammunition" around the South-East in readiness for taking my new toy out to play. I imagine that I will discover all sorts of weird and wonderful little gunshops around the area then.

    Pine Martin, thanks I will check them out (and let you know) though I called their London store a while back and nearly fainted when they quoted the prices. Whereabouts are you based ? The gunroom at the West London Shooting School have helpfully ordered in some Norma for me in the past and the Beretta Gallery on St. James' will order Federal and Hornandy and usually carry Sako in stock. I haven't bought from them yet but prices didn't seem off-market.

    The Trafalgar Meeting at Bisley is on 20th -21st October http://www.nra.org.uk/

    This attracts a range of travelling sellers that carry all sorts. Might be worth considering for a nosey.

    M03, Leave your trip until the 20th Trafalgar Meeting. Norman Clark and East Barnet Guns will be there.
    I could be having a walk round on the Saturday.
