2. A) If it could be demonstrated that sufficient penetration energy could be maintained downrange.
B) If the # of "flyers" you get with smaller shot, compacted in a tight pattern, could be significantly reduced.
I will apologize before I start...I know I am a newbie here but as Clark can attest I have done my testing with the shell I am about to talk about and have pics to prove the results if questioned! I use Remington Premier Hevishot Magnum 3.5-1 7/8-6's or Hevi-13 3.5-2.25-5's with my 935 but the 20ga gets the Federal HW w/FC wad 3-1.5-7's. No factory ammo matches these for pattern or penetration.
1. Federal 20ga HW 3"-1.5oz-7's outpenetrate lead 5's and I would put them against Hevi-13 6's.
Will go through a piece of aluminum at 40 yards and lead 5's only dent it...some H13 6's would not
pass through the same material.
2. 188 hits on a 8.5X11 sheet of paper at 40 yards.
3. 147 in 10" and 141 in 20" for total 288 inside 20" at 40 yards
4. The shots were different days under different weather conditions but both are great. The shot with
288 total gave me ALL, yes ALL, but 13 pellets of the payload on 3ftX2.5ft board. That sounds like
they eliminated most of the fliers. The general consensus is that these shells consistently yield 145+
at 40 yards.
