Minsterley Ranges

Minsterley ranges is a brilliant place for setting up a rifle, developing a load or just having a day out with some mates. They have 50- and 100 yards ranges, stalking and clay shooting.

Peter Lawman

This is a brilliant site for reloading stuff. There's tons of mailable stuff like bullets, cases and reloading kit and visits can be made by appointment for powders and primers etc.

Henry Krank

A very well stocked gun shop with a slight bias towards black powder and older firearms but also does a huge range of reloading gear and supplies, air rifles, shotguns, BP pistols and rifles and modern firearms. It is situated on the edge of Pudsey near Leeds, I think the logo must represent a building in the town as the shop is single storey, it certainly confused me!
