And the third Fed. BB load from the .675 Terror
I would advise you not to shoot steel at steel. I have seen it done at our club and it is very dangerous. The shot does come back at you.
As far as coating the plate goes, when shooting lead at the plate, we use plain old white latex paint put on with a roller. Between shots just roll it again, most of the paint is still wet and will spread out. Just add a little paint as needed to get good coverage. A wide paint brush works well also. A little shot of spray can orange makes a good point in the center to aim at.
A used pallet, a stick to prop it up and some paper makes a easy set up for shooting steel patterns. You can also get butt rolls from business forms print shops, ask if they have rotary presses. If so they'll have butt rolls.
Have fun. Ernie
Had these on file thought I'd share.
Sx2 with Imp Mod Inverctor Plus choke, 40 yards
I will post some pictures when I get enough postings. I have been working on large steel in a 935. I had one load shoot close to 90% @1740fps with F steel. Dave
I patterned about 5 brands of shells . Primarily a goose load. Here was my best . 12ga Win supreme 1 1/2 oz BB 40 yards . 71 pellets in a 30 "circle . 66% . What do the experts think ?
Any white latex paint, white lithium grease, motor oil. Try to keep the mixture on the thin side, as it will be easier to roll on. I shoot steel against a steel patterning board all the time. Most trap clubs have them.
Shoot 3 shots. Take a picture. Crop out what is outside a 30" circle. Use dot counting software and divide by 3.
The paper is a 22x28 piece of poster board shot at a lasered 32 yards with a Win SX3 and Browning Grand Passage Light Modified choke using the Browning BXD 3 inch 1 1/4oz 2's.
Think you found a better shell or 2 thats a bit more budget friendly
Yeah like this 3.5 in Silversteel 1 1/2oz BB at 35 yards. Not too shabby!
