    Components for buckshot load

    Can't believe I had all the components on hand to load up some 20 gauge buckshot loads.Found a load that uses Herco powder with Federal topgun hulls and Fed 209A primers, SP20 wads with 18 pellets of #4 buck. Can't have enough loading manuals!Should get to shoot some this weekend.

    This is quite an accomplishment in today's world. It's also saving a ton of cash. I recently looked to see if shotgun ammo was coming back in stock and was horrified at the new prices.

    Ya, for once I didn't have to run all over the place or search the web for hours looking for something to put together a simple buckshot load.
