The chokes are very tight I think thats why the relatively small(for 10 ga) payload kills pretty well. I use the only wads I can find. The old Rem wads. SP 10 I think. But put spacer inside to take up some room. Green Dot powder and a FED 209A. Same load Ive used at skeet and sporting clays. Just substitute reclaimed for the bismuth. JW
Location? Maybe, upper Michigan somewhere? I like 10 GA guns (and Labs). My Spanish 10 gauge double was stolen, so I bought a Browning Gold Auto Mag 10. It kicks less than the 3.5" 12 gauge Browning Gold I also have, but much heaver.
Elsie is just over 6 years old. She is a littermate to the male I just lost. She had her ankle fused solid due to extreme arthritis and cartilidge damage about a year ago. Light hunting duty doesn't seem to faze her a bit. I really liked how that picture came out today and plan on enlarging it for the wall. Thanks for the nice comments. JW
