How often you use a shotgun?
Posted 19 April 2017 - 06:34 PM
Loads awaiting to come back from PR on pressure testing. Hoping to come up with some solid #2-#4 and #6 1oz and 1.5oz loads of tss for these Varmint type critters. Hoping for around a 13-1400fps velocity with a few inches of penetration power to 60-70 yards by tell of the charts that we are calculating by. Does these loads sound intriguing?

I generally carry a 12 gauge to all my sets as well as the 22/250.
About 30% of the time I shoot them with the shotgun.
I reload, but have had outstanding performance with "dead coyote"
BB way out to 70 +.
But at $5 a shot I almost never use them.
My reloads I use 3 1/2" hulls "steel" powder and 1 5/8 oz. LEAD F shot.
I get around 1350 fps and have killed many coyotes over 70 yards with an .669 extended
ported choke, in my 870
Like the shooting ,Love the Hunting

I almost never carry a shotgun. There are a few areas that I do but quite honestly I reach for the rifle even on those sets.

Send me a PM if you'd like a call made just for you
I can make you a call out of most old shell casings as a souvenir of a special hunt, a first kill etc.
20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !
Mr. Coyote says, you can trap me, snare me, shoot me, cage me, chase me, just don't EVER swat me. I'll bite you...twice if you taste like a yooper !

TSS loads at $38/lb cost approx $4 for the 1.5 oz, and around $2.82 for the 1 oz, and there is no question they will out preform lead F shot, or dead coyote BB but there are more hunters than just myself.
