In addition, the propellant used in the 12 GA loads had a somewhat fast burn rate. Last edited by Norsky on Fri Jul 09, 4: I will not be able to get additional data on steel 4 at around fps which appears to fit the fps rule of thumb. My feeling from reading results posted is that 7 TSS is performing on geese. One might miss with a shell that has been loaded 15 times.
Too Many Misses
So I wanted to see which of these, if any, really do correlate with penetration in ballistic gelatin. Chokes - Tubes - Types - Turkey. Selecting the proper size shot is always a balancing act, since the larger shot size produces more kinetic energy with less pellets, but reduces penetration. I have been thinking of trying to check penetration with drywall 12 inch squares. A patient man, Roster looked frustrated nonetheless.

The question is still unclear as to how much of a loss in penetration from small steel to larger steel. Kent Cartridge in England loaded what was considered an equivalent bead buffer in shot size Number 4 and smaller buffered Bismuth shot loads. But I'm extremely sorry for the ducks he shoots at beyond the killing range of his gun and load - Bob Brister. The amount of powder that your gun can handle is limited. If an intruder breaks into your home and you have to shoot the guy, what is the best caliber?
The TSS shot certainly has my interest. Previous Topic Index Next Topic. A complete line of Bismuth reloading components such as hulls, wads, shot PSB polybead buffer, and their updated Bismuth shot reloading manual with new loads using Alliant Steel powder are available from Precision Reloading Inc, phone Don't take my word for it though. Tell us what you're thinking They used PSB plastic bead buffer in the buffered loads, mainly because it flowed so well into the shot column.
