10 GA AMMO

Postby grunt_doc » April 17th, 2009, 3:41 am

Does anyone else here hunt with a 10?  I have a NEF Pardner single shot that I absolutely love.  The problem is finding rounds for it.  I am considering switching to the 12 ga version, but I would only do that reluctantly if getting 10 ga ammo continues to be a problem.  so where do you guys get your ammo?

I don't hunt with one but have seen the ammo in the Gander Mt. store.  I believe Natchez supply carries it also and I have been very happy with past orders from that company.  Bass Pro doesn't carry any?

the Gander Mountain nearby sucks.  They never really have much of anything.  The Dick's Sporting Goods is more concerned with golf, and Bass pro is over an hour away.  I'll check out Natchez, thanks

Doc you mite check MidWay USA also. I don't know how much would consider spending on shells but there is always Nitro.

     In my 10 ga. (same gun as yours) I used Nitro shells.  They worked great out of the gun.  It kicked quite a bit though and I finally after 4-5 years started to miss birds.  I am pretty sure I was flinching.  Sould the gun and maybe 15 shells to a guy.  I was glad to get rid of it at that time, but it sure messed up a lot of birds.

I called around and found some.  I think that I'm going to at least order online from now on.  I know what you mean about the kick.  I actually bought that gun in '96 when I was in high school.  I think I got it because of the price ($100 new) and because to an 18 year old, a 10 ga is an insane cannon [:D].  It weighs a ton, as I'm sure you remember, and it my shoulder curses me everytime I fire it, but I just love that gun.....

In the early 1980's, I had a Spanish-made Zabala 10 ga. side by side that would kill from the front & cripple behind.  It weighed around 11 pounds and even with that much weight, it would pound my shoulder to a pulp.  I used it waterfowl hunting. It would absolutely rake ducks & geese out of the sky. I made the mistake of pulling both triggers at the same time just once...four geese fell when both barrels blazed though...it also rocked me up on one leg.  I used 4's for ducks and BB size shot for geese. The heavier shot really increased effective range and eliminated the number of wounded birds that would have to be chased down & finished.  I sold it to a friend's brother and he used it very successfully deer hunting.  Never shot a turkey with it though.
 
I've moved away from shooting magnum shells out of single shots, double barrels, & pumps in the last several years to ease up on felt recoil. a 3 inch 12 ga. is plenty to do the job on a turkey in range.

I applaud any of you who can shoot a 10 gauge! I'm just sitting here on my computer, and the thought of shooting a 10 gauge is making me flinch!
