At Corsivia www.corsivia.com we ONLY manufacture clay targets for shooting, we have been doing this par excellence since 1974. We are the company with the most know-how in the manufacture of clay targets using different raw materials (synthetic resins, natural resins, pitches…).

At Corsivia our sales team expertly advises customers, listening to their needs and recommending the most suitable product for them.

As happens in many other sectors, a high number of enquiries from our customers focus on a few common areas; characteristics of the clay target, availability and transport of the target, handling of the target at the shooting range. 

We have answered some of these queries below.

With regard to the characteristics of the clay targets and their packaging

We are often asked if the clay targets are biodegradable. The target is made of approximately 75% limestone (stone), therefore the product does NOT biodegrade. However, all clay targets will break down over time.

For example, the Green Dream target, made with 100% natural pine resin, turns into nice white sand over time.  

The Green Dream clay targets, like the Eco Smart and the Olímpico Innova targets, are eco-certified by Bureau Veritas under ISO 14021.

With regard to the physical characteristics of the targets; the weight and the size are standardised, as they are for the sporting targets (Midi, Battue, Rabbit,…).

The Corsivia clay targets (Olympic, Eco Smart and Green Dream) are suitable for all shooting disciplines, Trap shooting, Skeet shooting, Universal Trench, Compak Sporting, Sporting, DTL,  Simulated Game Shooting … and suitable for use with any clay target traps on the market; Promatic, Laporte, Mattarelli, Forniture Articoli Balltrap, Bowman Traps, Acorn Traps, Kromson, ….

In short, there is no excuse for shooting ranges like Concaverde  www.trapconcaverde.it, EJ Churchill www.ejchurchill.com, BTC Ychoussois www.btc-ychoussois.com  or Dornsberg Schützen e.V. www.dornsberg-schuetzen.de to not enjoy using our Corsivia clay targets.

In fact, Corsivia is a clay target supplier for ISSF championships www.issf-sports.org and FITASC championships www.fitasc.com It is also a brand approved by the Amateur Trapshooting Association www.shootata.com

In Spain we call them “platos de tiro”, while in America they refer to them as “platillos de tiro”.

The French translation is “cibles” and in English they are called “clay pigeons” or “clay targets”. In Italy they are called “piattelli”.

The clay targets are packed in boxes holding 150 units, with internal spacers. The boxes are made of top quality reinforced cardboard, enabling maximum protection of the Corsivia clay targets.

With regard to availability and transport

Corsivia permanently holds stocks of finished product ready to be sent to any part of the world.

Shipment is made as soon as the order and the incoterms are agreed with the customer. Generally a 20-foot or 40-foot FLC (Full Load Container) is shipped. In the 40-foot containers the goods are sent in fumigated pallets. It is also possible to send the good by road.

Corsivia guarantees the traceability of the order at all times, and the customer will be notified prior to the arrival of the goods.

After the order has been delivered, the Logistics Department will check that the customer is satisfied with the service received and the quality of the product.

With regard to handling the product at the shooting range

It is advisable not to expose the clay targets to high temperatures. Given the characteristics of their composition, they should not be left outdoors for long.

It is a good idea to store them inside the shooting trench, next to the Mattarelli, or Promatic machines.  

For a Sporting or Simulated Game Shooting range, keep a few boxes of clay targets next to the trap and store the rest of the pallets in a hut for their correct conservation.

When loading clay targets into the traps, load the drums with special care to avoid knocking the product too much.

Once the clay targets are loaded in the trap, all you have to do is draw your shotgun (whether it’s a Beretta, Perazzi, Krieghoff, Blasser….), load your favourite cartridges (Clever, Maxam, Nobel, Trust, Armusa….) and enjoy the excellent visibility and breakage of the Corsivia clay targets.
