    I agree 777 is pretty decent stuff it has NO sulfur in it and cleans up with tap water . Where as Pyrodex although a substitute still contains sulfur and it rust causing abilities .

    Briley makes little shorty tubes for the 12 so you can shoot 20 , 28 and 410 . These are slightly longer then chamber inserts or gauge mates whatever you wish to call them . The Briley things work very well and I have no complaints about the ones...

    6pt-sika replied to a thread #1 Buck in Casting for Shotguns
    I’ve used handloaded #1 buck in 10 and 16 gauge doubles to kill deer . This past season I killed two using factory loaded Winchester 12 gauge 3” #1 in my Benelli . I like #1 but I gotta admit I load and keep on hand everything from 00000 to #3 .

    The new to me 1904 Parker GH 10 gauge with 34” barrels finally showed up ! Not sure when they changed the 10 gauge designation for this grade from “EH” to “GH” but I have an “EH” that was made in 1899 and this “GH” that was made in 1904 so it most...

    I tried some .578” Minnie’s in a 16 smoothbore and as you might expect not so good , but not in a 20 gauge yet . I have a couple 58 minnie molds , but the ones I tried in the 16 came from a borrowed Lee mold .

    I'm not trying to tell you what to do , but if you're shooting factory Foster style slugs try the plain old Winchester slugs . The slug itself in those is a skoosh larger in diameter and "generally" most folks get better accuracy results .

    I take it the Moose Minie comes from these folks ? https://moosemoulds.wixsite.com/mm2013/wadcutter-hb I’m thinking I can adapt the .695 or .715 to work in the SP-10 wad for my 10 gauge doubles .

    I just added a Lee .562” and .575” double cavity roundball molds in our Midway cart for the next order . Hopefully those two with some combination of steel or lead wads will work for the 16 and 20 gauge .
