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 come and try one of the non lead alternatives (steel shot) at West London Shooting School on Tuesday 26th October 2021.

Participants will be able to try steel on a clay layout simulating live quarry shooting.

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. 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, quarter or cylinder and has 70mm chambers 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 stand 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 concern you have with regards to shooting sports with our regional staff.

Due to Covid19 you will need to bring your own refreshments or use a takeaway service; plus please bring a face mask, nitryl gloves, hat, safety glasses and ear defenders. Social distancing and limited numbers will be in effect as a precaution for all participants.

Cost: £12 per person please book via this link: TSA West London
