The future for the sporting rifle – Fieldtester, episode 5
In this month’s Fieldtester show, Tim Pilbeam leads a group of 13 stalkers who shoot 100s of deer a year, to find out how good or bad copper bullets are. The aim is to group-test copper bullets and check it’s accurate and it kills. In this month’s show, we find out about accuracy, one of the big complaints against copper rounds. That’s not all.
