Afternoon, after some cartridges, just spoken to Churchill's, they are selling gamebore white gold branded as Hellfire Pro at quite a saving over white gold prices.

Seems like a good buy.

What price are the Hellfire Pro please ?

I do believe Gamebore load a few similar loads to the White Gold but without the Diamond shot .

I’ve use them sometimes. Very good. With Diamond shot. Seem slightly smoother than white gold too. I think primer may be different. £216 in plas. £228 fibre I think.

Just looking at the white gold spec on the gamebore website, states the 7.5 cartridge has 2.4mm lead, so more like a size 7. 

Assume the Hellfire pro are the same.

Gamebore shells using Diamond shot are always in Euro sizes. Only Gamebore know why this is so.

What cartridges are you shooting at the moment Will? I try to shoot Rio target, on your recommended, in size 8. Can be hard to get hold of.

Love the Rio but found recoil a bit high when I moved to the Blaser. (My Perazzi had a recoil reducer). I now use mainly Gamebore Evo. Medium recoil and reasonable price. I also used some of the EJC Hellfire pro but couldn’t really see a gain and Evo a little softer on the shoulder too.
