Fieldsports Britain – lead-free bullet killability

How good is copper, tin and even bronze at shooting straight and killing animals? Firearms expert Andrew Venables tests out all kinds of lead-free rounds at Tim Pilbeam’s range in Sussex and gives his verdict. Meanwhile, Jaf Jefferson from the South Somerset Ferreters has a nighttime date with a fox – and gets more than he expected. Lots of foxes. We have the heartwarming tale of a British shooter in New Zealand who gets his gun confiscated – and Frederic Hanner gets it back for him. David is on the News Stump and Charlie has the rest of the world covered in Hunting YouTube. It’s all in this week’s #FieldsportsBritain

Here are the links to the individual items in this show:
