Re: 20 ga dove gun

I dont beleive I've tried the m2 for doves yet..cant remember, but dont beleive I have. I shot my little Charles daly once and couldn't hit crap. I typically shoot an m1 or a borrowed super sport, so maybe the transition to the m2 will be smooth and work out ok. I'm going to break my guns out soon ...

Re: 20 ga dove gun

The key to good patterns in a 20 or any gauge for that matter is hard, high antimony shot. That means handloads with magnum grade shot or relatively expensive target loads (Win AA, Rem Premier, Fed GM target). You will get better patterns from 7/8 oz of quality target loads vs 1 oz loads with lower ...

Thanks. I'm currently shooting a great 1 5/8 load but was wanting to try a bigger payload to fill the 20 inch a little more.
No offense to you or to Hal intended, but 1&5/8 oz is already a very robust load for a 20 ga. If you need/want more, perhaps you should consider a 12 ga.

Re: Anyone shot Hals MOA load in autos

Thanks guys. Y is it so hard on autos even when its within pressures? Perhaps because the 3" 20 is designed for 1&1/4 oz of shot (though I realize the Fed HW held 1&1/2) and the MOA is pushing 2&1/8 oz. BTW, pressure is not a part of recoil calculations...just gun weight, powder weight, ejecta weig...

I agree that W Ky is terrible during turkey season in particular. WNC is bad too. Got 2 or 3 off me and dozens on my dog during a Jan. grouse hunt in the mountains of Ashe Co, where there are tons of deer and tons of deer ticks.

I’d try the full choke that came with the gun. It will perform better than the numbers you posted I believe.

My Beretta O/Us have them. I'm fine with the automatic safety on the one I use for hunting. But I had it changed over to manual on the one I use for clays.

At least those players stand for their national anthems and actually appear to be proud to represent their countries unlike the spoiled ingrates that make millions in the NFL and then disrespect the country that makes it all possible. IMHO, every one of them should be sh*tcanned.

Re: Lucky Shot TSS for Sale

There is a higher use for that reclaimed shot. I believe the original idea came from Poor Country Preacher IIRC. I always put one reclaimed pellet on top of the payload in the shells I am loading to act as a scout - been there, done that kind of thing. Show the newbies the ropes and lead the way.

Re: 90/93

Don't shoot 20 ga, so not familiar with the 90/93 load. But the bottom line is, if you remove any cushion from a load relative to how it was pressure tested, pressure will increase. And if you add cushion, relative to how the load was tested, pressure will decrease.

Re: What turkey gun?

For lead - 12 ga. For TSS - 20ga due to lower weight. A 20 with TSS will outshoot any 12 with lead.

I'm partial to gas operated guns for recoil.

If you choose a 20, I would look at the Weatherby SA-08 if you like a conventional grip or the SA-459 if you like a pistol grip.

Absolutely amazing for a .410 at 50 yds. It wasn't that long ago that a 3.5" 12 ga would have a hard time hanging with that pattern.
