1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I have a full case of the cute little 2-piece boogers ... somewhere. But exactly where the 'where' might be, is the issue.

    I'm just thinking about starting to load for ducks & geese, and the 12C1 is pretty important - more for psychological that practical reasons. You understand, I'm sure.

    If anybody has quit reloading Federal Papers, and has some 12C1s still laying about, I'd be glad to help you clean your reloading cave up a bit & pay your cleaning lady a few bucks extra to vacuum your domain, too.

    I'll include taking any broken 'trial' bags of: B&P Z-21s a/o D-15, 19 or 21, Gualandi G-12xx, NS/Fio 'paper shell wads' in 21 or 24.

    Also, if anybody needs some Gualandi GS & C-GS in 12ga, I have broken bags of each.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Bob you might already know about them, but the Fed 12s-4 is just as good for loading papers as the 12c-1....altho not as cute!

    It is a 1ΒΌ oz wad.

    How much steel shot does a 12c1 hold? I don't think you're allowed to hunt waterfowl with lead anymore.

    Using steel with conventional wads is a great way to kill a barrel.

    If you load steel you need the thicker wads designed for that purpose.

    Steel pellets will go right through conventional wads and grind your bore.

    I gave all my steel loads, component and my plastic steel-capable guns to my son & s-i-l, and all I shoot are guns I like to shoot, and Bismuth is almost like cheating once you've done a little homework, that is.

    Fed12C1 wads handle the same 1-1/8 of Bismuth as they handled lead.
