This allows sportsmen that are required to shoot non toxic cartridges only to enjoy their sport without any severe loss of performance. To this end we use only the finest components.
The powders are made in France by SNPE Group to the very highest standards of consistency and cleanliness. The powder is a single base fine flake powder which will burn at low pressures required by Steel Shot cartridges. The Plastic Wad is designed specifically for Steel Shot with very thick walls to protect the barrels. The petals of the wad are so designed as to open approximately three metres from the muzzle allowing the pattern to form and increasing the protection factor to the barrels of the gun The Steel used in the manufacture of our cartridges has been specifically formulated to conform with the requirements for softness laid down in the C.I.P regulations. No other manufacturer can match the exacting requirements of shot except for Lyalvale. The new Supreme Steel cartridge has been developed to increase the range of the standard hunting load without increasing recoil by the use of a new formulation of powder unique to Lyalvale.
