CARTRIDGES for 16 bore

ANSWER

The range of cartridges for 16 bores is limited and it is felt by many shooting instructors that 16 bores don’t require a heavier load.

However, the 16 bore is particularly popular at the moment and Lyalvale Express Cartridges now makes a 30g fibre-wad cartridge, 65mm (21⁄2in), suitable for English 16 bore guns.

The firm doesn’t make this in 4s as the cartridge might pimple but it is sold in shot sizes 5 and 6 and costs from about £82 for 250. Call 01543 434400 for further information.
