    I shot these shells recently through my chronograph just to see if there were any differences in type of shot, primers, or hulls. Would like for some competent minds to tell me what you see? One interesting thing about the shot is that an 1 1/8 charge bar throws a charge of homemade shot that weighs right at 1 oz. I was expecting the 3 rd group to be faster than the 4 th because the factory with the same bar measured within 11 grains of an 1 1/8. Any replies are appreciated.
