Gamebore Cartridges has signed up to sponsor the BASC .410 World Championships, a clay-shooting competition using the smallest calibre shotgun in general use.
The event attracts people from around the world and is organised by the UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). This year Gamebore will be donating three thousand .410 cartridges as prizes.
The competition will be held on 27 September at the Mid Wales Shooting Centre near Caersws, Powys. Competitors can enter the open, ladies or junior classes (under 18) plus a new additional class for BASC members and a pool shoot. The winners of each class will receive Gamebore cartridges, a silver salver, a trophy and a BASC goodie bag. The overall high gun will be presented with the .410 challenge cup.
David Scott from Gamebore said. “We are proud to have signed up with BASC and the Mid Wales Shooting Centre to sponsor the .410 World Championships for the next three years and hopefully beyond. The event is growing in popularity and provides an exciting and challenging opportunity for shooters to test their skills with this increasingly popular calibre. As well as a serious competition with shooters from far and wide attending, it is always a very friendly event and provides everyone with a lot of fun. If anyone hasn’t tried their hand at shooting clays with a .410, they should come along for what is a very enjoyable and well- run event with some great prizes.”
Meurig Rees of BASC Wales said: “We are pleased to welcome Gamebore as the new sponsor for the BASC .410 World Championships. I have seen this event grow year-on-year with people attending from around the world to compete with their .410 shotgun, a small gun with great capabilities. I look forward to working with David Scott and Gamebore as well as welcoming this year’s competitors on the day.”
The competition will start at 10am with last entries at 2pm. Participants who do not own a .410 will be able to borrow one on the day.
