    The fundamental design change of the 590 series from the 500 series addressed a major
    shortcoming for hard use. The 590 uses a conventional magazine cap that allows the magazine
    spring and follower to...

    At "hallway distances" none of the pattern enhancement developments in buckshot ammunition, at
    least since the introduction of the pin-fire breech loader of the mid-19th century, make any
    meaningful d...

    The 3.5" 12 Gauge, aside from its original steel shot purpose, has a great deal of versatility
    for handloaders with its higher PSI rating and greater capacity for built up wad columns. Also,
    any 870 b...

    Cade,From what I can gather, you want a handy short barrel for your 870 Super Mag that will

    One of the interesting aspects of buckshot on light big game is the "poleaxed" effect that
    seems to happen when around 50% or more of the pellets strike the vitals. Here is another
    video, this time in...

    The few pellets that hit the deer didn't penetrate 6". One pellet found the deers femoral
    artery. A fine...

    Here is an interesting video of a short range buckshot strike on a Florida buck taken from a
    tree stand with 20 gauge Federal #2B (18 pellet .27 caliber) . At 3.26 on the video, the

    Good stuff to know, I found a video where they are testing buckshot at 50 yards, and like you
    say a .32's energy seems about right for that range with 00, similar to HV .22lr's, .32

    Look dude, I have been reloading shotshells for over 40 years. You can not maintain proper wad
    pressure with a simple felt/plastic wad. Anyone that has tried to load rock salt knows you can
