    Y'know guys, if the people at Lee were on top of things, they'd market a .735" o.d. wad to fit their own mold! The Drive-Key Slug has been out long enough that we know it's accuracy isn't a sure thing with commercial shot-shell wads. The only thing...

    .......and I am sad to see it go. Started in '69 by a retired LEO, his son took it over after his dad's passing. He did very well, the place was a Mecca for shotgunner's. Now, he is in his seventies and experiencing health problems, sad to see from...

    I believe you fellows are misunderstanding this gentleman's request. He is NOT looking for #4 buckshot as is commonly loaded in 20 ga. shells. Rather, he is looking for 0000 and 00000 buckshot, both of which are much larger than the 00 buckshot that...

    The thing I don't understand about paradox guns is this: How were they able to give any kind of useful shot pattern? Wouldn't the rifling mess it up? I know they weren't using the plastic wads that we do today, but still.......

    Edward is spot-on! As far as powder, American Pioneer is a very poor substitute for real black powder, IMHO. I've used it, I found it to shoot accurately and cleanly. BUT, once you break the seal on that can it's life is limited. If you're going to...
