    They should be completely unregulated, but I have what I want regardless of regulations. I just figure IF there is a way to stay legal, I will stay legal. Sadly, the only weapon I currently own that I can't legally carry is a tomahawk. Go figure.

    At least I'm not the only one who concentrates on hunting performance instead of playing by the rules of some competition. Thank you, KCSO.

    You'll do just fine, and if you have a rear sight, you'll see little difference in your group size between a rifle and this smoothbore at 50yds. At least if you consider what you need as far as size of kill zone. Now without rifling, you won't be...

    I get 5-6"@75yds, but my groups fall apart before I get to 100yds w my .54 smoothbore. I have had a few 6" groups at 100yds, but just enough to frustrate me by letting me know the gun is capable if I would just figure out what it's trying to tell...

    There's no words that do this justice, so for lack of a better way, I'm sorry you lost your loved one. They always get taken way too soon.

    No problem! Thank you. You just saved me from getting mine from the original group buy stolen. Or maybe saved me from having to dig a 6' long x 2' wide x 6' deep hole. Lol

    I'll take two 2-cavity HP GC .360" brass molds please. I'm thinking Christmas presents, and it'll get two friends to quit trying to steal mine!!! Lonegun1894 at yahoo dot com.

    Looking for a Gould design mold. You all know the one. It's the 330gr HP. Please let me know if you have one you're willing to sell. Thank you all.

    My .515", .526", and .530" RB molds are Ideal/Lyman, and old. My .527" is a Lee that used to be a standard offering 5-10 years ago, but that I haven't seen offered recently.

    Here's a copy of my load notes. The gun is a Lyman GPR stock, Lyman glint lock, and s Green Mountain .54" smoothbore barrel that is 32" long. "28ga: 60gr FFFg, 2 cardboard OP cards, 1 oz #6 shot, 1 OS card 70gr FFFg, 1 cardboard OP card,...

    I'll second Waksupi's statement. Here's my method/theory with my .54, and it applies to any shotload. What's your purpose? The "square load" is great for flying game like dove where you need all your shot to hit the target area at once...

    I would say it depends on where you hunt and any restrictions you have to limit yourself with. I mean, things like toxic vs. non-toxic shot, shot size, weather or not you plan on using a choke, etc. the devil is in the details.

    Investarms used to offer their "hawken" in .58 caliber-- and it was a 15/16" barrel. I used to have one. A friend of mine has a TC 1" with a 20ga (.620") smoothbore, so you can definitely go bigger than .54" in a 15/16" and bigger than .56" in a...

    I have a GM .54 smoothbore barrel Ive been using on a GPR stock for years, and it works great. But my turkey load is more along the lines of the heavy load you mentioned. My rabbit/squirrel/dove load is a typical 28ga load.

    Now I have more expensive molds, and have had my share of disappointments with Lee molds, but never once had trouble with a Lee RB mold. Still use a couple of them that I've been using for close to 20 years now.
