Glowing reviews for new loads
Will Edwards and his syndicate (the 5Ts) field-tested the new Lyalvale Express Supreme Game, Ultimate Power cartridge on a shoot day earlier this season. Will asked his team a set of questions and, as you can see from the table below, the cartridge got glowing reviews.
Did you feel any excessive recoil? Did you experience any ejection issues or misfires? And what gun were you using? Would you use this cartridge again? Did they perform as well as your current load?
Any additional comments?
The team’s responses were as follows:
BILL WINGET No problem, very comfortable. No issues; 1970’s Browning A1. Yes, good killing power on the high stuff.
Certainly as good as the loads I’ve been using.
NIGEL HOWLETT No excessive recoil. No problems in my Beretta SO6 EELL. Yes, certainly, and I’d buy them again.
Seemed to have better performance than my current load; I liked the low recoil.
PHILL PARRY None, very smooth. No issues with my old English S/S by John Harper. Most certainly use again. & Well as it happens I’ve been using its predecessor load for years, just love it. I simply didn’t think it could be improved on!
JOHN RUTLEY No. All worked fine in my best Purdey which has been cartridge-fussy in the past.
Yes, as I currently use the Express 70 flagship model.
To be honest, I couldn’t tell the difference.
One thing’s for sure, several of the good sporting birds I connected with looked like they were stopped by an invisible wall – super stopping power.
