My gun can hold and fire both. Can both size shells be loaded together?
I have a Bennelli that only holds 3 rounds of 3.5 and thats one in the chamber. I figure thats all I need... Each round contains 18 pellets, So how many can I kill in one shot. I use full choke for maximum take down power...... I'm sure I could modify and take another 5 rounds, But I don't see the need as of now.......3.5 00 buck magnum.....For home Defence.......
Loading 2 -3/4 and 3" shells together can be done, in
some pumps. I wouldn't do it.
You can load more 2-3/4 shells, generally, if it's a tube mag.
If you don't need the power of 3" shells, 2-3/4s are
cheaper, and easier on the shoulder.
+1 made me lol
---Shoot To Thrill---
Yes u can load them together....in my STOEGER semi auto I have loaded and shot 2 3/4", 3", and 3 1/2" without a problem
That was gonna be my answer, you beat me to it
That makes 3 of us!
LOL. I knew that was coming as soon as I pressed the send button! Anyway, thanks for the advice. Have a whole bunch of different loads to check out tonight. Ultimately my choice will be based on which combination of size and shot gives me the most accurate short range hit. Then we'll see how the slugs do.
I have. A mossberg 500 that. Holds. 8 +1 For home. Defense
Heavy shot #4 or larger, in low brass is cheap. 2 3/4 shells, short distance in homes your gold. It dumps all it's energy fast, 8 shot in low brass 2 3/4 is around 1200 to 1300 fps, that's faster than a 45acp and a lot bigger.
Did anyone mention 1/4"
Oh yea now that it's been brought up..... 1/4"
Beat up the newb. Ok. 3" magnum is more than I will need for home defense. Hit 00 shot on spot at 30 feet. All holes in kill zone with consistency. Picked up a handful of 2 3/4 slugs. Hit 4 out of 5 @ 40 feet in 10" circle. Not bad for 18.5" barrel. Probably gonna carry shot and slugs in the gun. Now to ice the shoulder.
This much....... 1/4"
I buy different lengths for my shotguns and they both work great but I don't ever load them at the same time. I know you can, I just don't do it.
Yes & the 3 inch holds more lead...............
i'm really thinking it could be, maybe a 1/4"? i'll go measure some and get back to you guys!
