Winchester XX Magnum 4s.
Holy cow! I've never seen a red dot load with that much powder. Blue dot is a different story. I'll almost bet that Red Dot load was overpressure...
Surprised to see that as wel. Never saw many red dot loads off a trap or chicken field.
Copper plated 4's, blue dot. Can't remember the speed but was close to trap load speeds. Back then, speed wasn't much of a topic. No extended variable chokes either. Kent tungsten matrix. Tremendous load.
Anyone notice majority of favorite old loads, ones that are buffered, heavy heavy 1 7/8 for geese 1 3/5-5/8 ducks? Hmmm.
Gonna get me a gun with a polychoke on it one of these days. Shot one this season a little. Those ugly things are probably the best invention since smokeless powder.
Max load for Blue Dot for 1-3/8 oz in AA hull is 34.5 grains. I've never seen a load for Red Dot over 1-1/8 oz. 36.5 grains with 1-3/8 oz would be a killer at both ends. Red dot is a bulky powder, don't think that load would crimp.
it's probably been 40 years...he may have gone color blind since then
Hevi-shot 2 3/4, 1 1/4 ounce, #4's and #6's
Geese = 10 gauge, 3 1/2" magnum, buffered lead BB's or #4 buckshot
Ducks = 12 gauge, 2 3/4" magnum, buffered lead #4
Bone breaker loads
Don’t do it. Ugly when things go wrong. Shoot semi tight. One will learn. Seeing guys on clay courses constantly changing their chokes hampers them more then it helps.
Plain old Federal #4 shot lead 1 1/4 oz "man I loved that load." Ducks and geese died real well!
