    Anyone know of any commercial 10 gauge # 7½ or # 8 loads suitable for playing with on the trap range ?

    RST makes some with small payloads, but looking for some with 2 ounces or more of shot.

    Not going to do anything serious with them.

    Just want to play a little.

    I know a guy that makes his own 10 gauge target loads with cut down hulls. They are about 2" long and have 1 1/4 Oz shot. Can't imagine shooting a full round of trap with 2 Oz(+) loads out of a 10 gauge. Insanity comes to mind...

    Heavy loads in a Remington SP 10 are a piece of cake. I used to load 2 1/4 ounce ahead of 58 grains of Alcan al-8. This was before one piece plastic wads. I assume the Browning gold is similar in recoil.

    I and a few friends tried to hit targets from the 27 with my Browning Gold 10ga. Using new Winchester steel "T" and BBB's, Our success was less than stellar, it sucked. But, that combo of shells and 10ga will knock Geese down with very little effort.
