Training in the shooting cinema is becoming more and more important. Not only because proof of shooting is required in many places in order to be allowed to take part in a driven hunt at all. For reasons of fairness alone, every hunter must have the right to optimize his shooting skills under realistic conditions.
Training in the shooting cinema is not enough with a packet of ammunition. Hundreds of shots are quickly fired in the various film sequences. The usual hunting load cannot be used for this - that would drain every wallet too much.
The manufacturer Sellier & Bellot, known for its inexpensive ammunition, has developed a special shooting cinema ammunition that is also ideal for other disciplines such as the "running boar". Shooting cinemas in particular are closed rooms and high shooting frequencies are the order of the day there.
The shooter is increasingly exposed to the resulting emissions, whether sound or breathing air. Hearing protectors protect against noise. With gaseous pollutants it becomes more difficult. Ventilation systems can exchange the air in the room, but every shooter knows the special taste immediately after the shot - the spatial proximity between the cartridge chamber, muzzle, nose and mouth is just very small. The only thing that helps is a low-emission ammunition design.
This is exactly what Sellier & Bellot did. The "Screen Ammo" has a lead-free zinc core bullet with a tin-coated jacket and a low-emission NONTOX boxer ignition. Due to this construction, the cartridge releases hardly any traces of lead, mercury, barium or antimony and is therefore ideal for indoor shooting.
Not everyone takes the high rate of shots in the shooting cinema lightly. With the new Screen Ammo, Sellier & Bellot have loaded a special powder that significantly reduces bullet speed and thus recoil. However, there is still sufficient power to ensure reliable function from "self-loaders". Even young hunters will appreciate the pleasant shooting behavior. Of course, the Screen Ammo is not suitable for hunting itself.
Little cleaning effort
A visit to a shooting cinema usually entails a time-consuming barrel cleaning. The new Screen Ammo keeps this effort as low as possible: the tin-coated bullet jacket reduces friction in the barrel and, in combination with the lower bullet speed, reduces heat build-up in the barrel. This leads to significantly fewer deposits in the barrel.
Usual meeting place
Nobody wants to reshoot their rifle just for training. With the Screen Ammo, that's not necessary either! The point of impact is the same as with the usual hunting ammunition. So you can start training straight away without having to adjust the target optics.
Intensive training and the resulting improved shooting results are basic prerequisites for proper hunting and ensure safe handling of the weapon. These are central points for the future of hunting. That's why Sellier & Bellot offers the Screen Ammo in a practical box of 50. And Frankonia deliberately keeps the pack price low so that regular training is not a question of money.
