    Sporting Shoots; where- and how was it? (2018)

    And rounded off a busy shooting week with RBSS Handicap Challenge. As feared, I missed 7 clays where I had done well last time, but at least did better overall by curing some of the initially bad stands. Straighted the 20 sequence and did 18/20 in the Grouse to prop myself up for 85 plus 5 handicap. Very good course.

    I've measured loads. I'm an engineer........and it kills my shooting!

    Actual shot sizes ??

    Definite difference between English and most continental as well as American sizes and sadly UK brands don’t necessarily stick to English versions. In essence most clay loads (that matter) are half a size bigger abroad e.g, English 8’s are 2.2 mm here but labelled 8.5 elsewhere, I believe Cyprus are a notable exception but could be wrong. To be sure of what you’re shooting you need to open one and measure several pellets.

    Actual shot sizes ??

    Is there a list anywhere of which cartridge suppliers use which ACTUAL shot sizes? is it as simple as U.K. vs European ? If so is there a definitive published list between sizes 5 and 9. Reason for the question is that I’m immersing myself in the 28 bore world and the reduced payload means that every pellet counts...... Any info gratefully received.

    EJ Churchill STR today. Always good. First layout was just lots of high loopers and crossers, nothing nasty, so 23 was not actually great there. The next three layouts were much tougher, with layout three being impressive at any level! Finished on 84, which won A class and was third overall. Admittedly not a huge entry..

    Hi bought a Escort PS12 about a month ago for £260 brand new ,my first semi auto bought it initially for a bit of pigeon shooting,took it local clay club ( Walters Ash) and absolutely loved it hit 40/50 ,light and handled well my only gripe with it is being a short arse the triopad butt in standard form is a little long especially in the field felt butt catching on jacket as I bought the gun up for a shot ,otherwise for the money I paid for it I’m happy Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    you caught me in a good moment, I had some terrible stands, quite literally not finding clays I would normally be okay with. I had shot 5 or 6 stands feeling extremely off before the exorcist moment and then it didn't get much better after that. Really a shame as I liked the course.

    If we get the support we hope to do it throughout the summer up till the end of September, as with our Shoreham Compact on Thursday nights it used to be a social event as well as good Targets and a friendly atmosphere. Dave

    FITASC Sporting is sporting Phil.. Admittedly it’s a French variant, so I thought it best to have a bash now, before Brexit gets it taken off the table..

    I don’t know, I couldn’t think of anything I had eaten to cause it but I bumped into someone who had it the day before like a 24 hr thing ad it was the same for me the next day I felt fine. Just a shame it spoiled my shoot.

    ISSF on a deroute?

    So the WC is on in Acapulco. If any one else have followed ISSF webapage and Facebook, there have been a massive decline in the coverage of the event. 1. no more livestreaming of any gender or discipline. 2. The photos looks like the have been taken by the local kindergarden. 3. Proof reading is not used at ALL. (headline after women's event: First medals disputed at the World Cup in Acapulco) But worst of all.. The livestreaming is now gone. Maybe the new general secretary has a very specific agenda?

    Very enjoyable afternoon at the Hornet (College Farm) FITASC registered today. Started well with a 24, then faded as the day went on, trying too hard I think, finished 85. Some great targets though. Very tired now, it does drain the brain.
