10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Location: Northall CPC


Time 10:00-14:00

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 the opportunity to try steel shot at Northall Clay Pigeon Club.

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. Each session will last approximately one hour.

Those attending should be experienced shots and bring their own 12 gauge shotgun.

Please ensure that your gun is choked to half, quarter or cylinder 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 a specific stand accompanied by a BASC coach.

When you have finished your round of 25 clays you will have an opportunity to ask our regional staff questions about sustainable ammunition or anything else relating to shooting sports.

Time slots: 10:00, 10:30, 11:00, 11:30, 12,00, 12:30, 13:00
