And have it all wrapped up in an hour, including commercial breaks. You realize that show isn't real, don't you?

In northern climates, where the BG might well be wearing a heavy coat over Carharts, birdshot of any size will be ineffective. (Had to toss that out there for the #4 shot proponents). I keep 00...

Try both 00 and 000 on paper first.

Fedreal Flite-Control 00 patterns tight with the more open chokes.

Anything over 35 yards, I'd use a slug.

"I was flaring the mouth slightly more then I do normally "

Maybe try less flair. Could be catching? Or pot a light taper crimp, then the roll crimp. Not that that's necessarily the way to do it,...

A properly loaded Buck & Ball load is good for some purposes. Home defense - inside the house - isn't one of those uses. Plain ol' Buckshot will serve you better.

TenX has it about right with...

Before you go out and buy any equipment (RC10MM's suggestions are good), you should get a book on general loading and read it through. The ABCs Of Reloading is a good one. In my opinion the 5th...

They've worded that very poorly. The LEE slug is supposed to be for either rifled or smoothbore. No matter which, the slug doesn't contact the bore, so pure lead or hardcast will work. I shoot...

OK, those are (advertised) 1,600 FPS, 1 ounce slugs. They're kind of an "old standby" load, mainly because they work. Accuracy is comparable to the Federal load you mentioned, recoil is considerably...

That's a fine gun.


What size Buckshot. It comes from T Buck (.20" Diameter) to 000 Buck (.36" Diameter). They don't all shoot the same.

Buckshot, even 000, sheds velocity pretty quickly. I'd have to agree that maybe 40 yards would be maximum effective range. Shoot some 9" paper plates at that range, see if you get many hits.

LEE's Load-All is fine for fairly low-volume reloading. I too have one for 16 Gauge. With that said, I'd recommend getting a MEC. 600jr, Sizemasters and 650s all are fairly common and inexpensive. I...
