Try standard steel ammunition on a clay layout simulating live quarry shooting.
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 members the opportunity to come and try one of the non lead alternatives (steel shot) at various clay grounds in the coming months.
This is intended to be an informal experience to give people to 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.
Each session will last approximately one hour.
All those attending should be experienced shots and are required to bring their own 12 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 using specific stands accompanied by a BASC coach.
When you have finished your round of 25 clays you will have an opportunity to ask questions about sustainable ammunition and any other concerns you have with regards to shooting sports.
