    Yes I have. Unfortunately his guns were waaaay beyond my monthly budget. I've seen the cartridges he calls "schriffle". Also too expensive for large volume shooting. Good Craftsmanship tho.

    Latest test was with discarding sabots instead of non-discarding. Velocity is 1000fps. Group was 3.5"@ 100yds. 4 shots. 2 in one hole!

    For anyone interested in trying, you CAN compress black powder in a shotshell. I'm up to .250" & no problems.

    Not a matter of need. I just wanted it to try long shots like 45-70 etc are capable of.....AND it's different! Ever seen a 20ga at bpcr?

    Would you feel confident shooting a Target at 600 yds with a rem870 & Hastings bbl?

    Size die ordered for Minnie's to straighten out skirts that are dented in shipping. Unfortunately buckshot no longer makes custom dies, so I had to look elsewhere. Lee will do them custom, but in past experience their turnaround time can be either short or long.
