Great British Shooting Awards 2020 nominee Eley Hawk is the latest company in our Best of British series.
Eley Hawk Ltd is a company with “The Best Of British Innovation” written into its DNA. Having been in existence since 1828 they have been leading shooting performance in shotgun cartridges ever since. Eley Hawk’s history of innovation is the bedrock of modern ammunition.
Earlier this year Eley Hawk launched the latest in hydrosoluable and biodegradeable wads. The VIP Steel Pro Eco wad cartridge is the first of its kind to be launched by a UK manufacturer.
When the wad falls into water it will dissolve in 24 hours, if it falls on land it will breakdown in anywhere between 30 days and three months. The 32 gram 3 and 5 shot game cartridges have been launched in Standard steel shot proof (740 bar) and a 70 mm case length to ensure they fit most Standard Nitro proof guns on the market (A clay version in 28 gram 7 shot is also available) .
Speaking about the launch – Rodrigo Crespo Managing Director said: “We are particularly proud of this development as for the first time we have a cartridge that has does not leave behind plastic in the environment.”
The VIP Steel Pro Eco wad cartridges are now available to buy and stock as the wildfowling and game season progresses.
