Do you want to learn more about alternatives to lead ammunition? Join BASC North at Paintmine Woods Clay Shooting Ground on the 3rd March 2024 for the opportunity to try some of the latest cartridges to hit the sustainable ammunition market.

Your gun will be checked for use with steel shot, and guidance will be given around ammunition options and chokes. You will then be able to try a selection of cartridges on a range of different targets.

All those attending should be experienced shots and the event is open to owners of 12 and 20 gauge shotguns only. It is advised to bring your spare chokes if using a multi-choke gun.

This is intended to be an informal experience to give people the opportunity to try the ammunition under qualified supervision and to dispel some of the myths regarding steel shot under the guide of a BASC coach.

The ‘International Proof Commission (CIP) does not give guidance on choke recommendations for Standard Steel in Nitro proofed guns. For this event however we are recommending your guns to be choked at cylinder, quarter or half to optimise performance. 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.

Please bring your shotgun certificate, a hat, ear and eye protection

Time slots:  2 stots every hour from 10am to 2pm
