Even more fibre clay loads for simulated days

Simulated game days are very much in vogue at the moment and a lighter load will increase your enjoyment without beating you up, so we’re giving you another batch of options!

Gamebore Evo

My personal favourite this month offers a genuine 65mm case, reasonable performance, and a soft touch on the shoulder.

Gamebore’s Evo range is the prime example of what a really solid mid range cartridge should be – and it’s extremely competitively priced too.

The 24gm fibre load is hugely popular – and with very good reason. Give them a go and you won’t regret it.

Load: 24gm Fibre 8 shot
Case Length: 65mm
Muzzle Velocity: 1420fps
Price: £211 / 1,000

Lyalvale Express Super Light

Express cartridges are renowned for their well-managed recoil in the lighter loads and the Super Light in 24gm is no exception to the rule.

The variety of shot sizes also make this a very versatile product and the genuine 65mm case makes it suitable for a simulated day with your old English side-by-side.

Load: 24gm Fibre 7.5, 8 or 9 shot
Case Length: 65mm
Muzzle Velocity: 1375fps
Price: £219.50 / 1,000

Hull Intercomp

Hull’s Intercomp has been around for years. It was originally designed for the international Skeet and DTL disciplines, and that pedigree has stood it in good stead in other markets too.

They still make a plastic wad version for its original audience but this fibre version has morphed into an ideal load for sim days and high volume practice. Nice and soft, and excellent quality.

Load: 24gm Fibre 7.5 or 8 shot
Case Length: 65mm
Muzzle Velocity: 1400fps
Price: £221 / 1,000

Hull Pro Fibre

I’ve gone with a slightly off-piste choice to finish with; Hull’s Pro Fibre range are a top quality offering with the advantage of blistering performance.

This is really more suitable for competition use, so you could be accused of overkill using it for a sim day, but on the other hand it certainly won’t let you down. The most expensive of the bunch, but for absolutely justifiable reasons.

Load: 24gm Fibre 7.5 or 8 shot
Case Length: 65mm
Muzzle Velocity: 1475fps
Price: £246 / 1,000
