A smooth paper-cased cartridge for use in traditional guns

Designed with the lighter weight gun in mind, Eley Hawk’s Impax paper case cartridge is perfect for those traditional walked-up game days. Smooth shooting for the true game connoisseur and those who want to shoot plastic-free.

As a true English classic, the Impax is the smoothest game cartridge for grouse shooting, loaded in 28 gram 6 and 7 shot. The paper case is lacquered using the long-established Eley ‘Pegamoid’ method, dipped and dried to perfection to increase the shelf life and prevent the natural ingress of water through changes in humidity. It's a true work of art.

“Eley's Impax load is my perfect choice from the Eley range. The 1oz load has proved itself time and time again over the many years it’s been in production. This load could’ve been designed with partridges in mind – the powder’s gentle, progressive burn delivers plenty of performance but the sort of barrel pressures your treasured side-by-side will love.” ~ Charlie Bull,
