    Anyone shooting 3/4oz loads in their 20ga?

    :eek:ALWAYS,ALWAYS...STICK TO THE RECIPE. NEVER ALTER IT, THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING IN IT.YOUR GUN MAY SHOOT AN ALTERED LOAD 1000 TIMES WITHOUT FAIL, BUT IT MAY BE WEAKING IT WITH EVERY SHOT YOU TAKE AS WELL. YOU MAY NOT GET TO TELL ANYONE ABOUT THAT 1001 SHOT THAT WENT WRONG. NOT MENTION VOIDING THE WARRENTY ON YOUR GUN,AS WELL AS POSSIBLY ENDANGERING YOURS OR SOMEONE ELSES LIFE.

    3" or 3.5"

    so buy a 10ga they come in 4" and 4.25 mag. or maybe an 8 ga.

    Cutting A Barrel??

    yes a coach gun is a side by side double with twin hammers and 18" barrels. they are a lot of fun. and if you pull off both barrels at the same time it makes the pattern spread like mad. they were normally greener 10 ga in the 1850-70s.made a mess at close range. they have them on gunbroker.com, originals are very expensive.reproductions are not too high and they can even be had in 410.

    20 gauge for turkeys

    thats what im talkin about, 1 shot 1 kill. Looks like my 7mm.

    3" or 3.5"

    on another note there are more pellets in a 1.25oz load of steel or bismuth than there is in lead loads.

    Cutting A Barrel??

    heck. buy an old double barrel coach gun. i see the problem with a longer barrel, and some will disagree. but never hunt your intruder unless your kids bedroom is on the oppositte side of the house from yours. let him find you.if your moving around, he is likly to hear you and hide. improve the security of your home so that its next to impossible to gain entry. its not hard to do and wont cost much more if any than another barrel. just a thought. Cleefurd....i am sorry for your lose my friend,i lost a 5yr old to a drunk driver in 91. i know your pain.

    Which gun should I get.

    they are a lot cheaper to reload too. if you get in to that like i do. heres the deal, 12 ga -1oz of shot @1100fps, 20ga -1oz of shot @1100fps.......whats the diff???? and you can get 1.1/4 loads for the 20 as well. myself i cant chose. thats why i have both.

    Looking at new scopes 4-12x range, any suggestions?

    try www.natchezss.com ,they cant be beat on prices. i got a simmons 6x24x50 for my 7mm mag for $65.00 plus sh. it is a bad azz scope i replaced my leupold 4x10x44 with it and im not sorry.the simmons is clearer than the leupold. they have every scope you can name including Zeiss if you want to get really elaborate.you dont need to spend a fortune to get a good scope, unless your just big on the names.

    all it takes is 1 pellet in the right place.

    3" or 3.5"

    after having done a little research on this subject, the 3.5 12 ga was introduced as close facsemily to the 10 ga.12 ga 3.5 loads can be bought with 1 5/8,1 7/8, and 2oz loads.while the 10 ga varys from 1 7/8oz -2 1/4oz.while patterns dont vary much between the 10 and the 12ga.the 12 is a bit more user friendly due to its being lighter, as well as a much wider use of applications and choices of ammo.[after all you would not want hunt dove and quail with a 10 ga.] but i also found out that 3" loads can be had up to 1 7/8oz as well. but just to set the record straight. heavy loads generally use less powder, not more.due to the fact that the heavy loads take less powder to create higher pressures. even this depends on the powder used. source: Lymann 2009 shotgun shell master reloaders manuel.

    if your not on your target, your not going to hit it with an 8 ga.by the way where did you get your vinci?? i heard the back order on em was 6-9 months.

    3" or 3.5"

    im more accurate with 2 3/4 just due to the fact im not dodging the recoil and getting the living snot kicked out of me.
  14. splashtx556ftw

    3" or 3.5"

    if you need more pellets , just load some oz and 5/8 or oz and 1/2 loads.
