I really like my hammergun with a Jones Underlever, even if it does confuse people used to an O/U.

I've managed to get three shooters at my local skeet club to take their first steps down the SxS path. I doubt they'll go down the path as far as Damascus barrels and 2 1/2" chambers, but I will continue enabling and corrupting them.


I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.

I give the guys from Holt's credit. They are making a strong, professional, run at promoting SxS shooting and vintage guns.
Jonny has a talent, and I'm glad to see it's development in that venue, on this topic.

Also, I'm going to try a new non-lead, alloyed pellet from Spain next week. It should allow the use of vintage guns with choke on game.


Out there doing it best I can.

As if it were not already possible? I've been using non-tox shot in my tightly choked vintage doubles for over 15 years, with much success I might add. Made in the USA, too.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

If it's Bio-Ammo Blue read what Diggory Hadoke has to say https://www.vintageguns.co.uk/magazine/an-unscientific-study

Did he actually say anything? It read like he shot poorly and his loader changed cartridges to allow him to make the bag.
Non lead is here to stay, so we should celebrate and support, the development of better, non lead alloys.

Before people get started, it’s their country, and they are able to have all the rules that they want without concern for what we think.

So what is the alloy they are using in Bioammo Blue? I haven't seen it explicitly stated anywhere.

@ The blend of Aluminium, Tin, Bismuth and Zinc has the advantage of being softer than steel.

His loader changed the cartridges from the Bio-Ammo Blue to lead and his "shooting" results improved. Dig is a hell of a good game shot - I've shot on the same line as him on a driven shoot day in the UK and seen him in action. I'd put money that his "shooting" improved because the lead cartridges performed better than the Bio-Ammo Blue.
