Title: Shotshell Handloading Myths
Post by: RMc on September 09, 2014, 07:36:19 pm
Shotgunning articles by the late Don Zutz strongly influenced my interest in handloading rather than simply reloading shotshells.  Here is an example how the pattern board can disprove old shotgunning myths:

Agreed.  That and the fact that every shotgun seems to be a law unto itself - especially doubles.

Agree...
Then again I come up Mentors & Elders, which meant Ruark and Misseldine...and I am in the "million dollar club" of firing shotgun shells...

The paper don't lie.

 This article, by Tom Roster, provides an excellent guide to handloader available shot that is very close to the quality of the now discontinued WW Lubaloy brand.

I had posted this in the general shotgun section and later realized this would be a great follow on to Zutz's article references to Lubaloy shot.  Yes, Precision Reloading has thrown down the gauntlet by producing  markedly superior plated shot!
