    Can anyone identify this shell. Comes in yellow and red one piece box. max. load. code QW1021. Why would some one need 2 ozs of shot. Especially number 10.

    Thanks
    Mike

    2-2-10 loads were used at turkey shoots. The idea was to put a lot of pellets on the card. Did not make much difference in the results as long as everyone used the house shells.

    That shell was very, very slow fps. Some Browning A5's would not kick out the empty hull.

    My understanding of the old 2-2-10 load was that it was intended for pest control around barns, corn cribs, chicken coups and other farm buildings for flocks of blackbirds.

    That it would be an effective card shoot load is beyond question, assuming that there was any card left.

    Ed,
    They would be good for blackbirds. Maybe I'll shoot them up. I have a full box.

    I have a factory loaded Active shell that is 2 3/4" 4 1/2 dram 1 7/8 #4. Talk about a kicker,I would not want to fire it in a lighter wt. gun

    Try shooting a 3.5in 2.25 oz hevi shot load at 1200fps out of a Mossberg Tactical Turkey. If the gun didnt patern like it does, I would have sold it. Recoil is objectionable.
