First Impressions: Gamebore “Traditional Game” 9g / #7

The contents of the Gamebore “Traditional Hunting” 9g / #7 cartridge.

The Gamebore cartridges contain an average of 97 pellets of #7 (2.4mm) shot. The cartridges are loaded with a short plastic diabolo wad with a compression section – almost certainly a Gualandi H21 “Nana” wad. The case is a standard 2” parallel tube plastic case, supplied in red with Gamebore branding printed in black and crimped with a rolled turnover and thin overshot card.


Recoil was, as one might expect, extremely mild. The muzzle report was surprisingly loud, however, suggesting that some of the powder remained un-burned as the shot column left the barrel of the test gun.
