Gamebore Velocity+ or EVO are worth a go.

+1 Gamebore Velocity. 

I chopped and changed initially, trying to get a feel for what I liked (TT one, Comp X, SuperFast, few Lyalvale etc) and settled on the Velocity. 

Affordable - I pay <£44 slab in my local, not overly punchy and a good consistent cartridge. 

If I'm honest I can tell very little difference between Fibre and Plastic in these, other than what I see visually leaving the barrels.

The RC Romanola fibres are great, easy on the shoulder and good hits.  Don’t use them often but when I do, no problems.

I find the red ones with black writing are the best by far.

Cheers. Know you're roughly quite near me, they're about the same price as the Fiocchi TT1 I use and wondered if there was much difference. Might give them a crack sometime.

Velocity fibre are £205 /1000 RRP. More like £58 if you buy just a slab. You sure about £44?

Was gonna say; just called Reigate gunmakers and they're quoting £51 a slab. Places near me on berks/hants border are saying just under the price Will gave.

Hey Will,

I buy plastic but yes £44 is correct. Most I've paid in there is £48 when I buy under a 1000. 

Built up a decent relationship with him too so he's going to look into the possibility of getting a few thousands in 8s if available end of the month from GB.

Ah OK, fibres are dearer, but that’s still very cheap.

Was that for a single slab? Have to say I don't buy less than 500-750 so maybe he gives a better deal.

Normal practice is price for 250, 500, 750, 1000 decreases pro rata

I'm shooting around 750 per month so if I bought by the slab I may as well get a job in there as I'd be visiting so often :laugh:

Edit - interesting you use Just Cartridges as a baseline, every single time I've checked their prices against local shops they've been more expensive - and that's not taking into account delivery fees etc.

They are. But consistently, so you can see what you should expect elsewhere, about 2-5% cheaper. I very rarely buy from them..

Why fibres when plastics are cheaper and softer to shoot?

Well.. only because of grounds that dictate them.  Or the occasional plastic guilt shooter.

I usually use plastic wads these days but would be happy to use Lyalvale English Sporter F/Wad any day of the week, I was checking prices today:

Solware £193.70/1000 + £16 carriage/1000

Forge Farm £201.15/1000 collect (Bordon/Farnham Hants area)

Just Cartridges £199.50/1000 + £15 carriage/1000
