hot defense load winchester super-x 3 inch #1 buck, 24 pellets


Recommended Posts

Winchester Super-x comes in 3 inch #1 buck with 24 pellets.  Patterns great, but the recoil is BRUTAL.  I can shoot 100 skeet loads without complaint, but I was wincing finishing off a box of 5 of these.  Those 24 pellets are .030 diameter and 40 grains each or a whopping 960 grains or 2.19 oz.

Not fun to shoot but some serious kick *ss!  Plenty of penetration, but not too much.  24 pellets gives lots of chances for a vital hit.  I just wish they did not hit me so hard, but in a self defense scenario who cars.

 

Has anyone else tried these?

3 inch magnums will definitely get your attention, but the recoil pad on the M4 plus the gas system results in no real problems with recoil.  A big hard push, but not a punch.

The cost, not the recoil, makes 3 inch magnums to be used only for special occasions.

Try some slugs in a pump gun to really experience some pain

These would be even worse.  normal 2 3/4 slugs are much softer than these on my montefeltro.  on a pump these would really hurt without an extra recoil pad.

maybe should add an external limbsaver pad for my montefeltro.  These are considerably more than 2 3/4 buck or slugs
