Location: Spitfire Field Farm


30 bird self-guided lead free clay shoot

Time 10am – 2pm (last rounds must start by 1pm).

Try standard steel ammunition on a thirty bird clay layout.

All the major shooting organisations are calling for a 5 year phase out of lead shot for live quarry shooting in the UK. BASC are offering shooters the opportunity to come and try some of the non lead alternatives (steel shot).

This is intended to be a relaxed thirty bird clay competition to give people the opportunity to try the ammunition through their own guns and dispel some of the myths regarding steel shot.

All those attending should be experienced shots and are required to bring their own 12 or 20 gauge shotgun. Please ensure that your gun is choked to half or less before attending. If you are in any doubt about whether your gun is capable of safely firing steel we suggest that you consult a gunsmith before attending.

Participants will be in small groups, BASC coaches will be on hand and there will be a small prize for the Top Gun and Top Lady.

When you have finished your round of 30 clays you will have an opportunity to ask questions about sustainable ammunition and any other concerns you have with regards to shooting sports whilst enjoying a burger and a hot drink all included in the entry fee.

Cost: £28 per person includes clays, cartridges, burger and hot drink.
