      The subject of the photo leaves little doubt. We know Goodsteel is working get that sawed-off 10-borre into a deer slayer bar none. Maybe even a dragon slayer.

      Funny they look like 10 ga to me, roll crimped.
      I suspect they will do the trick.

      We were trying to figure out why I’m getting perpetual “error” messages when trying to post photos from Photobucket.

      Yes, they are Goodsteel’s 10-gauge loads. Painful stuff.

      Yeah, those are ten gauge loaded with 2oz of #4 buck and about as hot as I feel is sane. Not to be shot when dealing with sinus pressure as I found out recently. When you shoot, your head dips forward violently and that jostling of the brain can give a really special headache!!!
      The good news is a gentle squeeze of the trigger on that gun pretty much guarantees a resolution to ANY problem one might find themselves beset by, forthwith.

      Harter I say sounder extermination that 410 less the 4 equal 10, would mess up a lot of things LOL..

      Tim is extremely proud of that ole girl don’t say I blame him though. The 10 is not for me but to each his own I’m going to lighter recoiling rifles / guns for a reason

      If a .410 shoots 3 pieces of 000 buck, then does the 10ga also shoot 3 pieces of pumpkin ball???
      2oz of #4 buck?? Hellsbells 2oz of anything is a nightmare!

      LOL figured everyone would catch on about the 4 10 if you take away the four then your left with a 10 gauge

      I have the 10 loaded with pumpkin balls as well. The two are side by side on the shelf. The pumkin ball loads only toss one ball though. I find that as the caliber goes up (or gauge in this case) the balls/bullets are more easily deformed. Besides that, there is a certain element of speed necessary for proper effect here, and in order to get 3.5oz of balls (thats only two of them you know) moving over 900FPS, the recoil and pressure begins to tromp into insane territory a little too briskly for my taste.
      As it is, I cast pumpkin balls that are .785 in diameter, they are each swaged down .005 by the barrels, and they are deadly accurate to 50 yards. They are cooking off at a bit over 1200FPS, and will put down anything in the world in my opinion. I can push them hotter, but I think I like it where it is.
      Here’s a video of me shooting the round ball loads.

      Punkin’ balls? I might have to mess around with that. I got a dubbly bbl, but not a 10. its a 12.
      Gosh, 1 3/4oz each! a heavy 12 load is 1 1/4. geez, it kinda puts it in perspective.
      Well then, what does 2oz of birdshot look like when you pattern it on the shotgun poster board drawing, you know, the big circle on the big paper?

      Use WW hulls, Federal 12S3 wads with the petals snipped off, 1.6cc Lee scoop of COW, and a semi-hard ball .735 in diameter lubed with 45-45-10. You’ll have to work up your own powder charge, but this will stack well in the hull. Keep the barrel cool, and you should be able to shoot pop can bottoms at 50 yards, basketballs at 75, and trashcan lids at 100. From my 20″ cylinder bore shotgun, that is almost exactly the dispersion I experienced.
