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. 

Think they said about £196/7 for 1000 but as already mentioned, presume that's for fibre, hence the cheaper plastic price. Everywhere I shoot is fibre only so can't be arsed to look for anything else on the offchance.

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

You still have some Winchester AA's then  ?

I went into the gun shop at AGL today as after some Express Power Golds. They wanted £240 / 1000 for plastics which is £14 more than JC sell them for. Seemed a bit confused when I said thats steep, I’ll leave it thanks 🤔

Superfast plas wad are about the smoothest thing available above 24g, while the fibres are thumpy.

True , but if they can do it ... how can someone else justify a £22 / 10% premium . Of course discretionary pricing is nothing new , and I don’t blame the seller if they can extract that cash from those who don’t take the time to  price check like you did .

Me and my shooting 'flange' are cartridge sluts. We will buy whatever is cheaper, no morals.

currently Gamebore Velocity Fibre 28/7s are the prefered item listed at £189/1000 BUT we buy about 8/10,000 between us so can negotiate....last time they came out at £185

 

roughly same price at moment for Lyalvale express, Eley select. Cheddite are a bit dearer.

vast increase since I started about 2 1/4 years ago.....we were paying around 167/1000 then

I've heard a lot of people say this but when I cut open a white gold and a super gem I found differences in the wad, powder, primer and shot.

SuperGems work well enough but can be very dirty in some guns - mine for example. If I've been using them I'll always switch to something else for the last stand just to blow the black residue out of the barrels.

From what I've shot I would try:

Below £200 per 1000

Fiocchi TT One

Rio Target Load

Around £220-230 per 100

Fiocchi FBlacks - I know not everyone is a fan, but I like these, especially for G/O and longer range stuff

Gamebore Evo
