At this time we wish to express our most sincere thanks to Jim Allison of Cast Bullet Engineering (CBE) for his invaluable support of Beaver Grease™ in recent years. Jim is beginning to wind down operations at CBE with a view to retiring and actually having time to get out shooting. The very best wishes to Jim from us all in NZ.

***Chrsitchurch black powder shooting***
Black powder muzzleloader shooting is now being conducted on the 3rd Sunday of the month at the NZ Handloaders site, McLeans Island Road, Christchurch. 25m and 50m offhand shooting with novelty and precision targets. Breechloading black powder shooters welcome also. For further details visit:
From the very first batch of Beaver Grease™ it has been my intention to minimise the cost of the product. Packaging is a contributing factor to the final cost to the consumer. Recently I have decided to, where possible, supply all Beaver Grease™ products in New Zealand made packaging. The reasons for this are two fold. 1) Constant supply. Imported products are often secured in limited batches and whilst some of the packaging serves the purpose very well for me continuation of supply has to be priority. 2) One of the major factors in the development of the Beaver Grease™ range was to supply a domestic product at competitive rates. The irony in making a domestic product then supplying it to the market in imported packaging is not wasted on me. The most recent changes will reflect in the packaging used for Beaut Bootz and 'Tween Shots Wipin' Fluid. "Kilpo" flip top containers have proved brilliant for the BG Patch Lube and have been utilised for the Beaut Bootz also. 'Tween Shots will now be available in a 250ml spray bottle or 500ml refill, both of which are in NZ made packaging also.
