I hand cast TT shot 21 caliber almost pure lead, soft.
I use steel powder in new Rio 3" hulls and MG42 wads with a roll crimp.
I can only fit 49 pellets in but there going very close to 1400 fps.
There shot out of a m3500 30" Stoeger and an extended ported .670 choke.
I put at least 6 pellets...
Never had them tested.
There is a published load and it's listed at 1400.
I have a magnetospeed one day I'll run them over it.
On my 3 1/2 chamber shotgun, it is listed up to 13,000.
The lead F's have killed MANY coyotes.
Your right I never cared for a #4 buck either especially through a .670 choke.
I'm quite confident things will die.
My normal coyote loads but with TT lead 21 caliber instead of lead F 22 caliber pellets. One and a half oz.
With the TT I get one extra pellet in a 3" roll crimp shell, that's 49 pellets. They book at 1400 fps with a load of steel powder. I got 21 hits on a...
MY two Duck guns are 3 1/2 chambers but the kids have pumps and autoloaders that are only 3".
We do roll crimps on our steel shells.
2.760 (70.10) ROLLED saami
2.655 (67.44) FOLDED saami
Mine run at 2.70 rolled.
They should run through their autos?
Mine of course eats them with no problems.
Never had an outboard.
BUT up here in cold MT we run well into winter and -20*
My Sportjet inboard is a self-draining V6 and the mud boat is an air-cooled surface drive.
Both have rollers on the trailer, not bunks, bunks freeze to the boat.
If you stop with the jet the pump could freeze when...
I do re-load.
Lead and steel and buckshot.
We use around 500 steel shells a season.
I have special load for special game/hunting.
Like 1.5 oz TT F lead 3" for coyotes, 1 1/2 oz #6 for crane and turkey, duplex 1 3/8 oz # 5X7.5 for pheasants, and 1 1/4 oz #7.5 for doves.
Steel sucks, everything...
OK here is a thought.
We made a mud boat with a sea nymph flat hull and a 27 hp Mudbuddy long tail.
Worked great BUT.
It had 4 guides I guess there called on the bottom and a fairly pointed front.
One thing, the guides on the bottom cut into the mud making for less bearing service on the mud...
