Some light Duplex loads perfect for bunny blasting
« on: June 11, 2012, 03:54:31 PM »
loaded some dove/partridge and rabbit loads this week . I shot a few on paper and liked what I saw. I didn't count the hits but the density was great and looked like most of the pellets hit inside the 30" target at 40 yards with my 870 and modified choke.
There a 2 3/4 inch Rio hull with a VP13 wad with 24 gr Clays powder Rip-209 primer. One once of #5 and #7 1/2 lead big ones on top.Listed at 8800 psi and 1325 fps. My normal is a 1 3/8 oz with blue dot but looking for something a bit lighter. The recoil was light and feed great I think I'm happy ,now all I need are some pigeons to fly by so I can SEE how they work...

DO to the increasing cost of energy, Gas,and Electricity. The Down turn in the economy.
The light at the END of the TUNNEL is Now TURNED OFF!!!

 O0 Sounds like a really good multi-use load, D. I prefer that kind of load, mixed shot. Sometimes you need a few heavy shot to break bones and punch through weeds and brush.
