The HSE proposes a complete phasing out of lead ammunition
Both clay and game lead ammunition will be completely banned from being sold and used before the year 2025, large-calibre hunting bullets will be completely banned from use before the year 2025, and small-calibre hunting bullets will be completely banned from use with a transition period of 5 years, a ban on lead bullets for target shooting, unless a shooting range has been specially licensed.

Daystate Huntsman - The Revere
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a friend's Daystate Huntsman Revere a short while back and managed to spend some time testing and evaluating the rifle. The Daystate Huntsman Revere is one of Daystate’s newer offerings, yet manages to retain the company lineage of the past 40 years. But is the Revere to be held in the high regard its name suggests?
