It is with considerable sadness that we have to report the death of the great Colin Greenwood, who died peacefully on Friday 10th November. The funeral, was held at 11:30 on Tuesday 28th November 2017 at the Church of St Thomas the Apostle, Church Street, Heptonstall, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, HX7 7NT. The family requested no flowers, but if desired donations should be made to MacMillan Cancer Support. ( We did)
Mary & Mike attended with Bill Harriman from BASC – a very sad day for all of us, and a great loss to the shooting sports.
I now appreciate that the Muzzle-Energy graph we were supplied with was probably incorrect, (Thanks Mike R !) so to clarify the position I’ve taken this from the NRA website re limitations at Bisley and on most MoD Ranges, including Sealand.
a maximum muzzle velocity of 1000 m/s (3280 ft/s) and
a maximum muzzle energy of 4500 J (3319 ft lb);
Cartridges which, when normally loaded, would exceed the ME/MV limits of any specific range may not be used on that range even if downloaded.
(Furthermore, the MoD have also banned the use of ammunition using copper bullets (or bullets made from similar materiels) as they do not deform in such a way as reduces the risk of ricochet.)
This is not something we wanted (neither did the NRA) but it is what we are lumbered with. Please ensure that your ammunition conforms – all the ammunition we supply does.
