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.

    Doing some cleaning and came across an almost full bag of size 12 shot. Not sure if anyone has use for it, but I'm pretty sure I don't.

    Anyone want to buy it, trade for it, or tell me what on earth I should use it for?

    I actually loaded up some shells with it once. Shot at a paper target just for fun. The shot barely made it through the paper.

    Years ago I used to reload 20 gauge shells with #12 shot for quail. We shot them along an old river bottom and most of our shots were with in about 15 to 20 yards. Worked great for that, but pretty useless for anything else other than snake shot.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    You really used it for quail? I figured you'd end up with about 600 pellets in the bird... like eating metal sand. Yuck

    #12 shot is what 22 rim fire shells are loaded with.

    Loaded some up and used them in a turkey shoot once. They were declaring the winner by whoever was closest to the center.

    I'll take if no one else has it yet. I load .38 shotcaps with it.

    Figure out how much total using a USPS flat rate box and let me know...

    we loaded up a bunch and tried them on 16 yard targets. It was interesting as it would not break a target but it would chew the rim of the target off and it looked like a rabid gopher had got hold of the target.
    I tried them in a 28ga and they would kill a 20 yard Starling but not a 25 yard starling.

    That stuff would just hit a wall and do no further damage to a starling.

    I then loaded up some in a black powder pistol and shot station 8 on the skeet field. That was fun and they would break those targets.

    Like they say.. Good for snake shot or shooting Starling and pigeons inside buildings where you don't want holes in the tin roofs. In the way olden days it was called snipe shot.

    Great for making your own pistol shotshells, CCI used to sell the plastic capsuls and you could fill them up with 12 shot, it sucked to buy 25 lbs. LOL

    .

    Magazine writer Mike Venturino, who lives in Montana, says that #12 shot is the best shot size for rattlesnake loads in pistols.

    Venturino has tried several different shot sizes over the past forty years for snake loads.
