Eley Cartridges

Recommended Posts

I was told the other day by a RFD that they are having a fair few shotguns come in for new firing pins, & all have been firing Eley Cartridges, they said it seems like the primers are too hard on them. Have any of you come across/heard this? My go to Cartridge is Eley, but if there is some truth in this I will have to be re-thinking my loads.

Yes i had a few Eley factory carts with hard primers , I dont shoot many factory stuff prefer to load my own.

I have been shooting Eley Superbs on clays for years with no issues at all but I don't use pigeon / game cartridges from Eley as they are a bit too pricey so I wonder if there is a difference with the primers used.

Use VIP on game,  but only about 400 a year.  No issues at all.
