    Tryied a slab of Fiocchi FBlack 28g 7.5 last weekend and found them excellent,they really dusted the clays compared to the Eley Blues i normally use.
    What are you guys paying per 1000 fblack's in yere local gun shops?

    The spread on them is a bit tighter than other cartridges. Tighter chokes will do the same if you are on a budget.

    Last slab of f blacks I got was €62

    I'm using a Miroku mk-38 trap gun with fixed 3/4 and full choke,no chippy breaks with these shells.i paid €65 for the slab in my local dealer.

    I'm shooting F3 piston 8.5 which equates to UK 8. Now there dust makers. €65 per slab. 7.5 is closer to size 7.

    65 out of lakelands. I believe they are the importer. Anything below that and your doing really well

    Bought another slab of the Fblack's today for a DTL shoot tomorrow in Bishop's Mountain, think I'll stick with these for comps.
    What you guys think of Fiocchi TT ONES 28g 7.5? A bit cheaper on the pocket for practice.

    I like the f blacks but I had alot of problems with hard primers in the TT ones. In that price bracket I'd prefer eley Olympics for €55

    Have to admit I've never had any hard primer problems with the Eley Blues i normally use, think I'll give the TT one's a skip for practice so. thanks.
