RC2 competition 24gr
The RC company was formed in Italy in 1971, originally as Romagna Caccia. With the Italian preoccupation with the trap disciplines it is good to see a clayshooting cartridge which, in its shot sizes of 7.5, 8 and 9.5 is suitable for trap, sporting and skeet.
The cartridge is loaded in a 70mm case with plastic wads. Muzzle velocity is 1,400 feet per second.
Online price: 197 per 1,000.
This is RC’s lightest competition load, available in plastic or fibre-wadded versions with size 7.5 shot. Muzzle velocity is 1,425 feet per second.
Online price: £175 per 1,000 (plastic wad version)
