20 shots per person traditional black powder clay shooting
20 shots per person traditional black powder clay shooting followed by a session of cannon shooting including 2/3 shots per team
For those wanting to get back to basics, we now offer black powder clay shooting. Before the invention of smokeless cartridges, black powder was used to fire the shotguns – don’t worry, the tweed jackets and deerstalker hats aren’t essential. This is a totally unique stag do activity.
This great Derbyshire outdoor activity enables everyone to learn how to muzzle load and fire the traditional black powder shotguns. We head onto the beautiful estate grounds to smash some clays the traditional way, while filling the air with clouds of gun smoke (makes great photo opportunities.)
All participants get 20 shots each, that’s 15 breech (cartridge) load followed by 5 traditional muzzle load over 4 different shooting stands.
And for groups that REALLY like things to go with a bang you can upgrade to also shooting a real live 1/6th scale cannon from the HMS Victory. Each team has 2/3 shots with the cannon using grapeshot .577 musket balls (about a dozen per charge) to see who can get nearest to the French Flagship.
It’s certainly a unique stag do activity.
BOOOOM. Clay pigeon shooting doesn’t get any better than this.
