I would certainly hate to be limited to one shot size & one load. "IF" two sizes & loads were allowed & lead were legal for all I could make a pretty good case for an ounce of #7 & 1 oz of #5. Add a 3rd size & I would go up to #3 for pass shooting geese. Do you note the pattern, I like the Odd numbers rather than the evens but would pick #8 over #9. for smaller than #7. As #7 is not aways easy to come by I have usually relied on #7 instead.

2-piper,

If you are having trouble getting the #7 you like, Lion Country's on line store has the Fiocchi's all the time, order on line and get free shipping right to your door! I order them shipped to my back woods log cabin all the time! Great shells no doubt about it.

A pity, as I have about 5000 1 1/4 oz #4 lead loads hanging around the homestead, left overs my Dad never used after steel became the law.

I shot a fox one time, figure it was out 30-35 yards, with 1 1/4 of 4s, the thing laid down and died before the smoke cleared. It had one hole on each side of the pelt, through both lungs and the heart. Gun was an A5 with a 26 Hastings barrel and an IC choke. Patterned the gun with that load, later, and was surprised I got him with anything.


Best,

If those 5K ever get seriously in your way, Ted, I'll pay the shipping to get them out of your way. wink

They are "medicina muy mala" for crows.

Stan,

You get what you play for. I think that quote comes from the pool player, Minnesota Fats.

Tell you what-send me a PM with an address, and Ill put together a care package for you. It wont be all of em (they are in the basement, and it might take me weeks to get em all up) but, it will be more than enough for you and an interested kid to enjoy a few afternoons of crow shooting. I think there are a lot of WWs, Federals, and some Actives, maybe some odd stuff, like Sears, loaded by one of the big three. Ill mix em up a bit. Mostly 1 1/4 oz loads, might need to be a bigger kid, but, Id really like a kid along, and a picture for the brothern, right here, if you can.

Have a great day.

Best,
Ted

I was kidding, Ted, but if you're serious I certainly would appreciate it. I love shooting those peanut-eatin' crows.

P.M. sent

If Fed-Ex comes to your little corner of the world, Ill get this off on Monday, Stan. Had a box just right to get a little care package off to you.



Use em in good health. Maybe not in your Smith, however.

Best,
Ted

Absolutely not in the Smith. Even tho' it is a 16 ga., if it were a 12 it wouldn't get fed 1 1/4 oz. fodder. I only have a couple S X Ss that I would feed them to.

Oh MY, I shot those active shells one year in Mexico hunting ducks.
They had to be the most powerful 2 3/4" loads I ever pulled the trigger on...Geo
