No shortage of shotgun shells!
« on: August 28, 2013, 06:36:05 PM »
It seems, with the current 'ammo shortage' there's an abundance of choice for shotgunners.  At least, in my neck-of-the-woods.







Plenty of 12-gauge OO Buckshot.  There seems to be a lot of the mil-spec variety, in this case Olin manufacture.







Along with lots of sluggers from Remington, and Brenneke.

Yes I have seen a few various loadings for the Shotguns, but I still invested in a buckshot mold to cast 00 and #4 buck shot just in case.  Here are the 00 buck loaded over Blue Dot.

10 00 pellet load

Duplex 00 & #4 buck

I like your 'Duplex' loading. It's looks interesting, and must be a nice defense mix.

I still need to test them out, but they should provide good results!
BTW the Duplex Load consisted of 16 pellets total, 8 of #00 & 8 of #4 Buckshot.

I could get a 12 pellet load of 00 buck, 3x3x3x3 if I cut the petals off of the wad's shotcup.
