That’s exactly my plan of attack I don’t want to stop shooting but will go now once a month instead of most weekends I just can’t justify the cost anymore I can then also cancel my membership at my club & shoot as a non member. But if cartridge prices continue to go up at this pace I will simply just give up clay shooting.Already at my limit, shooting once a month when it used to be weekly, (well 5 if you count the straw bailer one see below).
Grounds loose out and eventually so do the manufacturers.
It just need one of them to bring a a good budget cart and they will sell, like lightspeed, oh hang on they've just gone up again
When you add up 4 times a month, plus clays, travel to shooting grounds it mounts up. No wonder a local straw bailer shoot near me(can't really call it that as it's well run and organised) £12 for 50clays member, or £15 non member has close to 100 people there a week, pity it's only for a few months in the summer.
Where is ‘ here’ , Pothunter? I’m across the Channel and have to pay for cartridges in Euro’s too (NL) but while we have seem some pretty steep increases it doesn’t (yet) seem to be as bad as Blighty.No such thing as a cheap cartridge here any more. eley Olympic, €300 at the minute , Tunnet universal €300,Chediddte universal €300, fiocchi tt one €305 all going to rise in price again shortly. they would be classed as budget cartridges here, and more than good enough for me to break clays. But are €70 to €100 more expensive than last year. Crazy
