Impact Velocities

Woodleigh now have recommended impact velocities for all our soft nose bullets. These are listed on our website and printed on the new bullet boxes. We recommend a range of impact velocities for each bullet which will give reliable expansion and optimum retained weight.

These recommended impact velocities were arrived at after exhaustive field testing on various game. If loading to higher than the recommended velocity you may still get excellent results but it is our experience that driving the bullet within our ranges will give a more predictable result.

Factory Fire

We regret to inform our loyal customers that we had a nasty factory fire on Saturday 27th November. Thankfully no one was injured.

Most of the working production machinery was damaged and all the packed stock was burnt. We do have some unwashed & unpolished stock stored in bulk drums, but we have no way of dealing with it at the moment. It will be available at a later date.

Regarding our Woodleigh Load Manuals, they are on a very slow boat and will not arrive until February.

It will take some time to assess the machinery damage and make a plan for the future.

Thank you for all your texts & emails with your messages of support.
