  2. I'd imagine the manufacturers biggest worry is the stockpile of game loads they'll be sitting on. Dearer to make (more lead) and much more margin on them. They're stuck with them until orders come in next autumn. Not that I will lose any sleep over it! PM.
  3. I imagine that their warehouses are full and that they have ceased production, Mr. Gamebore et al are probably sweating over having all their cash tied up in stock.

    Black Gold & Gordon Recoil System parting ways?

    good point, expecting all the excuses when we get back to it why everything has gone up 15/20% anyways
  6. So, there can't be many people doing any shooting in the U.K. right now. have the manufacturers stopped producing, or is there a huge stockpile of cartridges fitting in warehouses?
  7. None and simply because they would put the price up

    Black Gold & Gordon Recoil System parting ways?

    so which fiochi would any of you guys like with the benefit of the gordon system fitted ?
  9. 40gm... I'd be more concerned about all the trees it would shred while I'm busy missing!

    Black Gold & Gordon Recoil System parting ways?

    Black and blue more like..
  11. one of the shells in the range is a 40gm #4 at 1475 FPS . It’s in a standard 70mm case . I bet you’d suffer from recoil after a hundred of those buggers🤣.
  12. I don’t believe it does anything ..
  13. Fair one, thanks. Dont suffer from recoil so wouldn't be much benefit to me probably.
  14. The Gordon system incorporates a special base wad in the cartridge head that claims amongst other things to reduce felt recoil as it compresses when the shell is fired . They are easily recognised as you can see a plastic ring on the head . I’ve been using the #6 30gm Black Gold game for a few seasons . You’ll not find it on budget or club cartridges .
  15. Anyone care to elaborate? Never heard of it.

    We don't get them here at all, strangely. Plenty of Gamebore around, but the Gordon ones sell only in the UK? Must be a licensing issue, but I haven't found any other cartridges with the 'system' that do sell here. I'd fancy trying them out.

    Black Gold & Gordon Recoil System parting ways?

    I have used the best part of a slab game shooting and felt they were excelent with no issues but I have read on another forum and seen some photos of half the case missing after being fired, possibly some issues with the eley version also, early days i guess
  18. ...or it maybe that their new quad seal is as good, or even better??
  19. It`ll be to do with Fiocchi having bought out B& P who have the Gordon System.
  20. I had a couple of slabs of Blue diamond and liked them a lot at first, but about half way into the first slab I was having difficulty opening the gun. At first I thought something was wrong with the action, so I ejected and closed and opened the gun a couple of times and all was good. Nit satisfied with this, I removed the barrels for a quick inspection, but count see anything wrong. I remounted the barrels, loaded a couple more cartridges and upon ejecting has the same resistance to opening. I repeated my inspection and on the next pair, again with the resistance. That’s w
  21. Shame , I liked the game loads in #6 . I could pop them in my cartridge belt with Hull #5 and quickly know which was which by the Gordon head . Also very nice to shoot .

    Black Gold & Gordon Recoil System parting ways?

    You mean the recoil blew the primer off?
  24. AFternoon, so then, somebody told me that Gamebore and the Gordon Recoil System were parting ways? Anybody shed any light on this?
