Goal for 20 gauge predator load: 27 #4B, buffered, in steel shot wad @ 1200 fps in a 2.75" hull, roll crimped.
What wad? Most I can get is about 25...
#4 Buckshot update: Hornady #4B actually measures .240 and 21 grains.
Geeeeeez. Why is it that AFTER i shot my wad (no pun intended) and I load up on a particular buckshot round, and patterned it from my 870 that I come across what might have been better choices offering tighter patterns and lower recoil? Damn you all for sharing such information!
IMO, Federal is missing a bet by not marketing a 12 pellet #1 reduced recoil buckshot load. #1B just meets the FBI 12 inch standard penetration mark while at the same time reducing the potential for overpenetration in home protection venues.
It appears that Federal is going to be releasing our "#1 flite control" in the near future. Looks like good stuff.
I swear by the Federal 00 with the Flitecontrol wad. I get it through the department so it's listed as a LE loadingI shoot it out of a Benelli M1S90 Entry gun and I had to dial in my ghost rings for the load. I'm talking 8 inch patterns at 25 yards all day long out of a 14" cylinder bore barrelI call it, "Vang Comp in a box"
Hornady critical defense...the magic with the versatite wad is strong. Winchester super-x is not bad for some budget shot.
"Minute of Torso" George you did it again - fantastic descriptor for Tactical buckshot patterns!
So under what circumstance would a "wide" buckshot pattern, (say 1" spread per yard or greater), be best?
