Five Minutes with Eley Hawk Sponsored Shooter, Michael Drever.



Olympic Trap (Para Trap) and a bit of ABT when shooting for Orkney.


How long have you used Eley cartridges?

2 years now.


Favourite load(s) and why:

Titanium strike 24g 7.5’s – very simply, they pattern best with my gun giving me absolute confidence in my equipment.  Additionally, they are fantastic for those long-range second barrels when required.


What do you love most about Eley cartridges?:

The consistency and quality at their respective price points and ability to smash clays at a variety of distances.


Gun(s) used:

Beretta 692 black trap.

Favourite ground/shoot:

The Al Ain equestrian shooting and golf club in the United Arab Emirates is the best ground I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at.  Beautiful green grass, trees in the distance as a background and it's always sunny and warm there.

Stick to the plan

Be honest with yourself, know your capabilities and be realistic.
