This weekend, Viking Arms will host a trade event where Eley Hawk is planning to launch two new cartridges: one of them being the 1st Select competition load.
The cartridge will have a 12mm brass head for smooth ejection, and a white, 67mm case with gold lettering. The six-star crimp closure and Maxam powders will ensure clean burning and firing in fibre and plastic wads.
1st Select will be available in the following specifications:
28 gram, 2 per cent antimony lead shot in 7, 7.5, 8, 9
24 gram, 2 per cent antimony lead shot in 7, 7.5, 8, 9
21 gram, 2 per cent antimony lead shot in 7.5, 8, 9
Eley Hawk’s David Thompson said: “This is a new exciting product built to our exacting specifications and engineered to provide an excellent balance between speed, recoil and clay-breaking power.”
The company will also launch the Pigeon Selection cartridge.
