Join BASC to test out the latest non-toxic (standard steel) biodegradable wad cartridges on Saturday 21 November at Field and Falcon Gunstore near Wrexham.

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 this informal opportunity to try it out and answer any questions you may have. This is a great opportunity to discover more about using sustainable shotgun ammunition for field shooting, and to find out how effective these loads are.

£10 per person includes 25 clays and cartridges overseen by a BASC Shotgun Coach.
From 10.30am – 3pm – no booking required.
